8/24/15 Week 75

Wow so this week was seriously one of the best of my whole LIFE!!!!  
This is supposed to be a district mug shot...missionaries aren't too well practiced at that
Here's why:
On Friday we had a seriously miraculous break through with Id AND her husband Juan Carlos!  We have been meeting with Id for awhile and she has been just right on the verge of setting a date for baptism, but she is just a little scared of taking that big step.  Her husband is actually the brother of one of the members in our ward, and we have taught him only a few times and he never really seemed very interested like his wife.  Friday we had a lesson with them both at the church, and we had planned to teach el espiritu santo y preseverar hasta el fin, but the conversation just turned right to baptism.  We asked Id about it and she said that after she dropped us off after our lesson we had the week before with her, she just couldn't stop thinking about it.  She said "Could I still get baptized on October 3rd?"  Umm YESSSS!!!!  Then we turned to Juan who had been a lot more quiet and asked him if he would like to prepare for baptism with her, and to everyone's surprise, he said YES.  We couldn't believe it! Id even asked "are you sure?" and he said "yes I am."  I seriously could barely stay in my chair! was a good night.  Their journey is still not going to be easy, but it really was the miracle we had been praying for.

We finally found Hazel and Jorge.  Turns out she hadn't been avoiding us like we thought, but her phone is totally busted and I guess we just went by at the wrong times. we talked with them about baptism as well because Hazel had a date for sept. 5th, but she really wanted Jorge to do it.  It wasn't looking like that was going to happen, but we had a talk with them and Hazel is going wait while Jorge gets ready so that way they can prepare to be an eternal family together:) aww.  But then our ward mission leader said just to baptize her now we are confused on what to do....

The gang's all here for David's baptism
No kissing allowed Hna Bonny!!
 On Saturday I got permission from President Ames to go back to Lewisville and see David's baptism.  Oh my goodness it felt like a family reunion! Everyone was there. The wankiers, hatfields, zamoras, Hna Taele, the Stuckis, Magda, David...ahh! It was amazing! The whole time I was just thinking, "Man what would have happened if we would have just kept riding our bikes? We really almost went right past him. I feel like my favorite scripture just keeps playing through my head "through small and simple means are great things brought to pass".  So true. No effort is ever wasted. I love you all and I love this gospel!

Luv Hermana Bonny
