For ye shall go out with joy and be led forth with peace:
the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing
and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.

Week 53

On sunday our past investigator randomly showed up to church smiling so big in her hot pink dress! I was so shocked and so happy. for those of you that don't know the the first half hour of church your heart is pumped so hard and you are waiting anxiously and nervously to see if all of the people you are teaching are really going to show up or not. and its that long at least in the hispanic wards because they are always late. but anyways when she came in i wanted to cry we were teaching her a month ago and i love her so much. She wants to change her life and she reads the scriptures and prays every night and she told us it always makes her feel good. but the thing holding her back from baptism was going to church it was really hard for her for a few reasons so we ended up dropping her because she wasn't coming. but she told us when she was in church that we need to start coming again to teach her. and we had a lesson that sunday night with her and she is willing and ready now to change and sacrifice all of her fears. She says that she wants to come to church every sunday and she has the baptismal date for the 28th of June now! She is so excited we made her a paper that says the 28th and she has it on her mirror to remind her of the promise she is going to make with Jesus Christ and to reminds her to read and pray. I love her so much and transfers are next week. If I leave here I will be so sad not to be there and I love it here so much! I want to stay forever! I love Hermana Vergara too and I hope we stay together but it has been 3 months so who knows. I can testify that the gospel of Jesus Christ blesses our lives. No matter what we have to sacrifice and change to follow Jesus Christ we will be happier with the blessings that He has for us rather than the things that we think will make us happy. He knows us better. There is true happiness in righteousness and obedience to God's commandments. Pray for an opportunity to serve someone today then look for it, act and serve! You will be even happier!
