Milagros en Milagro

Hey everyone! I love you all and thank you for all your prayers on my behalf! I'm praying for all of you, too, and I hope everything is well on your end! Basically, here in Milagro, we have been having AMAZING weeks, and we have had members walking with us almost every day, strengthening their testimonies and sharing the truth! Milagro means miracle in English, and we've basically been having miracles in Miracle! One day, it was SUPER hot, and the power went out at like, 5am. So, we were suffering in our personal and companionship studies and just in the house, because we live on the third floor, in the hottest apartment. So we studied and everything, and it was time to close with a prayer, and it was my turn to say it. So we got down on our knees, and I told Heavenly Father that it was very hot, and that we would like to have our fans working, and that we would also like to recharge our music boxes so we could listen to that as we finished getting ready for the day, if He saw it fit, please.

Challenges and Celebrations

Hello all!!!! This week has been a rough one, but we're still going strong! Basically, we were all super duper pumped because one of our investigators, Angelo, hadn't drunk alcohol for 19 days, and was super ready to get baptized on the 24th of April, and very happy about it too, because baptism is basically the ticket to entering into the kingdom of God, and it is an ordinance that ONLY counts if it is in the Church of JESUS CHRIST of Latter Day Saints, because the true power of God, the priesthood was restored to the earth through the prophet Joseph Smith Jr. and no other church has the authority nor the power to allow people to return back to our Heavenly Father's presence. But, as said in the Bible, "...the drunken... will not be heirs to the kindom of God." It is said in both Galations and Corinthians, I have to find the scriptures again. B
