Tragedy & Hope

Sector- Lampa, Santiago
Comparero- From Ecuador
Carta #92

Wow, this week has been hard, but it was good over all. In the missionary work part it was slow at the beginning of the week just looking for more people who are prepared to receive the message we have and accept it. But we really couldnt find anyone. However Vannessa and Oscar and Coni are progressing super well. They are the investigators the most prepared that I have ever taught!!! its sooo amazing! Just everything we say and every time we teach the spirit is there sooo strongly because theyre just sooo prepared to receive us and accept the gospel.

But at the end of the week, we found a family that was just amazinggggg!!! We received this family as a reference from a member, and he told us that the son in the family had recently committed suicide and hung himself in the house. And that his mom found him there hanging. So that was something really really difficult for her. And that the Catholics had passed by and told her basically that her son was going to be in hell forever ha. So that didnt help her at all either. So this member invited us to pass by with her, and we explained the plan of salvation and how much God loves us and how he can change and repent, and it brought soooo much calm to her soul, and alll her family. Theyre like 7 in total. And you could just feel the spirit sooooo strongly there in the lesson testifying of what we were saying and they all could feel it sooo strongly. I loved it. We set another date to go back, and i have so much faith that that family will progress and arrive at a baptism to be able to help her son and become an eternal family. That was amazing to be able to be an instrument in Gods hands to bring peace to one of his daughters souls that was greatly afflicted. That is the joy of the mission. We literally are Gods hands here on earth or God angels, and thats amazing to me!!!

I cant wait to see you guys again!! stop having sooo much fun without me pleeease!!! hahaha just kidding. I love you guys Soooo much!!
