Week 51-- 5/5/14 T3
My week was good. We had success teaching our investigators and helping them progress. We are continuing to teach Marta and David, family members of Jose (member). They are progressing super well. David is 17 years old. When we first started teaching him he was really timid and not too excited. He doesn't know how to read really well, so he was sure that he wouldn’t be able to read the book of Mormon. But we've been helping him little by little and now he's able to read the book with help and understand it well. He's also opened up a lot more with us and in general seems happier. Marta is in her 20's and is a single mother with two children. She has a lot of faith and desire to follow Jesus Christ. When we started teaching her, she told us how she always dreamt of opening her own hair salon. Last week she was able to open a small salon beside her father's store. She's also enjoying the book of Mormon and has been reading a lot. It's amazing to see the things the gospel can do in the lives of people. We have two couples who are preparing for marriage on the 31st of this month. It's not going to be easy with all the documents necessary, but we're praying they'll be able to make it for that day.
This coming week we'll be working a lot harder to teach new investigator families. It's difficult sometimes when you mark a lesson with someone and then it ends up falling through. It happens all the time. But difficulties are just part of the work; they will pass as we keep working hard and being dedicated.
I hope you have a great week and work and at church and at home. I can't wait to talk to you all on Saturday!-Until then
I love you,
