We went on exchanges on Thursday and Sister Ellsworth stayed in our area, and I went to the STL's area. She and Sister Luque visited some 'potentials" that we have. They visited the Puente family. Sister Puente was an investigator (perhaps was baptized??) nine or so years ago, but we haven't ever been able to meet with her and have a lesson. So Thursday, in Sister Ellsworth's words: they magically got inside and had a really good lesson with her two sons, Miguel and Aiden. "And she eloquently said words and they accepted a baptismal date" And Sister Ellsworth was so surprised/caught off guard and so she said the 21st of June. That's a Wednesday. jaja. Anyways, So we went over on Saturday night and visited them and they said they'd come to church!
Sunday morning: we went to Miguel's house to get him to church and it honestly just looked like he woke up. But said that he would come and that he needed a ride (side note: Saturday night he said that they would not need a ride). So then we go to Lulu's to make sure she will be to church on time for her and Gustavo's confirmation! And have to return home so Sister Ellsworth can get her badge. In the midst of all this, we're scrambling to find members to bring this 19-year-old guy that wants to come to church! We come back to his house 5 minutes before the meeting is supposed to start and he's all dressed up. Like white shirt, tie, slacks, shoes, suspenders (gun-holsters...), the whole bit.
Now we're stuck. But Damian--the Bishop's son/RM pulls through and brings him to church!!! yay!!
So yes we were late to church. Yes right once we sat down the counselor in the obispado (bishopric) said to make sure we're on time to sacrament meeting. :/ Also, we missed Lulu and Gustavo's confirmation. :// And we had to sit in the middle of the chapel. :/// And we felt super bad. ://// But repentance is real! :) And that is never happening ever again. You feel icky if you're late to church--DON'T BE LATE. :)
So those were kind of the highlights of this week. Miguel will be coming to church next week for all three hours, and hopefully his brother as well, and we met the two nicest grandma's ever. President Torres has asked us that with our potential investigators we tell them that we teach five lessons, and have them commit to that. So we have two grandma's (Abuelita (little Grandma) Lopez y Abuelita Fuentes) as new investigators. #setexpectations. #Spiritsostrong #somanystories #Ilovegrandmas
The church is true. Don't be late.
Miracle dinner on Saturday
Find Jesus, He saves.
