They cried and asked us to teach them
Monday Oct 31 2016

I love my hijita(daughter) her name is Hermana Cardoza and She is from Piura Peru and is the sweetest most angelic person in the world, I have felt nothing but pure gratitude! So I took her out for ice cream to talk and get to know each other a little better :)

In Bolivia its just another normal day so thats fun, but when we knock on doors, Ill ask for candy just to make it a good Halloween! Haha

Ada now has a baptismal date for the 19th of November! and last night we had a beautiful family night with her mom and other sister. We talked about their true identity being daughters of a heavenly king, they cried and asked us to teach them what we are teaching Ada and the spirit was just so peaceful and strong and we were just so happy!

Another day of the week we were walking up the hill after lunch at our penshionists house and there is this house that usually has about 7 workers who are men and a woman who lives there, and they always give us cat calls and so I looked at my comp and said, lets go give them a pamphlet and we went and they ALL listened hahahah and we actually have a family night with the woman that lives there and her husband and kids! She told us she is really interested and wants to learn more.
Im really excited to see what happens, Ill let you know next week!

Then, another day, we were contacting in the street on our way to an appointment with Ada and there was a young man named Sebastian and as he was walking into his door we stopped him to give him a pamphlet and share a short message about the Plan of Salvation and he was really interested and we ended up having an appointment with him and turns out he was so confused on what to believe that he started to believe that after death we would just be dust. He told us that his father had died around a year ago and that it hasn't been that easy for him. He said he felt a lot of peace about this message and that it gave him a lot of hope. It was cool to explain to him where his dad is right now.
We will be meeting with him next week after all of his tests in school. Ill let you know more about what happens with him!

Another cool experience that we had with contacting people in the streets was with another young guy outside of his house, his name is Limber and we talked to him about the restoration and yesterday after church, we met with him and taught him all of the discussion and about the book of mormon, and I think I just love talking about the book of mormon cause I don't know why actually, but it just makes me so happy to teach people about that book!

This week really was so beautiful and peaceful and I LOVE MY HIJA!!!!
Have a great week! :)
