A Miracle Happend!

Sector- Lampa, Santiago
Companero- Elder Gonzalez
Carta- #89

A miracle happened this week!!!! We have an investigator named Nancy, her daughter Isabel got baptized like 2 years ago, and she has her Boyfriend on the mission now. Nancy has been receiving the missionaries for more than two years now, and she loves to feel the spirit and listen to the messages they bring, but she never could ever clear up the doubts she had about Joseph Smith, and the Book of Mormon, and Thomas S. Monson being prophet today. She just couldnt believe it. So we had gone by many times trying to help her. And eventually we went by and she told us that she had finally read the book of mormon and prayed afterwards to know if it was true, and she felt really deeply that it was true. So that day we put her with Baptismal date. Even though she had her doubts still about Joseph Smith and Thomas S. Monson being prophet today. We kept teaching her, and as her baptismal date got closer, we started to get really worried about what was going to happen because she still hadnt received her answer about Joseph Smith and Thomas S. Monson and in the baptismal interview you have to say that you believe that they are prophets and that you know that because youve felt it, so we just prepared everything for the baptism still, having faith that as she does her part preparing for the baptism that God was going to give her her answer. So we went by every single day last week trying to help her, and eventually the day of the baptism arrived and she had her interview at 5:30 p.m and her baptism at 7. I was just supperrr worried because I didnt think she was going to pass and we were going to have to cancel everything. But miraculously she passed, and we had no idea how still because we were busy doing everything. So she got baptized and was just superrrr happy and everything and feeling the spirit and that was amazing, but after her baptism she gave her testimony. She told everyone how that same morning she had gotten the movie about Thomas S. Monson and said a prayer before watching it, telling God that she wanted to know if he is a prophet because she wants to get baptized. So she started to watch it, and she said that as she watched it, in her heart she felt something sooooo strongly and that she knew in that moment he is a prophet of god and receives revelation for us. She said she cried like the whole movie. As she bore her testimony on these things you could just feel the spirit sooo strongly, and I was just soooooo HAPPY that we could help someone to gain a testimony sooo strongly about this gospel and Thomas S. Monson. I know that because of this testimony she will be able to stay in the church and receive the blessings God has for her. It was a MIRACLEEEE!!! 

Nancy Monsalves. It was an amazing baptism!!

Me and my Friend DOMENICO!!!!

I'm just sooo grateful for everything that's happening because it strengthens my testimony as well to see these miracles happen. And that just shows that if we have righteous goals, that we know God is pleased with, that if we do our part, God Will ALWAYS do his part. He will ALWAYS provide everything we need as long as we are following him, and doing his will. We can all have faith in that. And this experience shows that this is true.

I love you Guys!! Thank you for the Email!!!!
