Hey everyone my message is way short and simple. We had a great week! 7 investigators came to church! Bro Rico, who is by far the most elect person I've ever met. We have only taught him twice, yet he already has a testimony of the Book of Mormon. It's awesome! He attended the baptism of Brother Kenneth (pics have been sent. He is the dark skinned guy holding the baby.) His wife is a less active member. Soon to be active :) When at the baptism he said he is interested in listening. So we went and watched finding Faith in Christ, and committed him for baptism on Oct 22. I'm so excited!
We are teaching the Ramos family. Brother and sister are awesome. Their daughters loved church at primary. And brother and sister have said that they love the feelings they get whenever we show up and share the gospel. They will be baptized also on the 22. Then the Palanca family. The mom is a less active member and the husband listened. He hasn't committed to come to church, not ready yet. But, their two sons will be baptized on the 15th. They are ready to go to church at 8 in the morning. They are awesome. We have also a couple others that didn't come to church but just want to be baptized so we will work with them. Which brings me to my message.
"The standard of truth has been erected, no unhallowed hand can stop the work from progressing. Persecutions may rage mobs may combine, armies may assemble calumny may defame, but the truth of God with go forth boldly, nobly and independently, til it has penetrated every continent, visited every clime, swept every country, and sounded in every ear. Til the purposes of God shall be accomplished and the great Jehovah shall say The Work is Done." -Joseph Smith.
The work is going well and we are part of it! I love the work and it's the work of the Lord. I love you all and hope you are doing well!!
