This week has been very good, and my companion and I have been really busy. We usually have about 10 or so referrals from members and investigators, but this week we have been busy with 21. So again, tons of work to do and lots of lessons to teach.
Our recently baptized members are doing great, and it is exciting to visit with them and see how they want to help further the work. I love these families! As they continue to learn about the restoration of the gospel, and recognize and understand the Spirit, it is amazing to see blessings come into their lives.
We are working with several other "pilas" investigators that are progressing towards baptism. They also are working hard to recognize the guidance of the Spirit and make changes in their lives.
As President James E. Faust said,
"The gift of the Holy Ghost comes after one repents and becomes worthy ... the Holy Ghost bears witness of the truth and impresses upon the soul the reality of God the Father and the Son Jesus Christ so deeply that no earthly power or authority can separate him from the knowledge."
And as missionaries, that is our stewardship. To find these elect people that are ready to hear the message of The Restored Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Here are some random pictures from over the last several months ........ We also have a lot of fun as missionaries.
A wonderful mother and grandmother!

A group from the States came to our ward - "Smiles for Central America". They came to do dental work for future missionaries. I was asked to translate for some of them. They also brought princess dresses for the little girls, and super-hero costumes for the little boys. It was great fun!
Fun P-Day with President and Sister Klein.
