February 22, 2016 ~ Week 24

Hey family and friends! Let me begin the repentance process by asking forgiveness from you all for my lack of communication to you all. A lot has happened in these past weeks, probably the most of my entire mission haha. Well to start off I am sure you are wondering what happened to our investigators with baptismal dates, and Im sad to say that a few weeks ago they call texted us and said that they did not wish to be baptized anymore and dropped us like a rock. we have not been able to meet with them since which is not a good thing. We aren't sure what happened, but they said that they do not feel like Joseph Smith was a prophet and did not believe in the Book of Mormon. That was incredibly sad, but I want it clearly known that I KNOW that Book of Mormon is the word of God and that it truly contains the fulness of the gospel. I KNOW that it was translated by Joseph Smith through the power of God. I KNOW that Myƶhempien Aikojen Pyhien Jeesuksen Kristuksen Kirrko is the only true church on the earth today!  

Anyways, after that super hard week we were blessed with so many blessings like the addition of two new awesome investigators! One of them was found by the Sister missionaries here and given to us because she lives in our area. We started to teach her and she progressed wonderfully! She `Having a disposition no more to do evil, but good continually´ has really changed her life and come back in tune with God through prayer! Unfortunately she developed feelings for my companion, so we had to give her back to Sisters were they will finish her teaching!

And our second was given to us by a member. She met him one day and started to introduce him to the church little by little, by bringing him to church activities, church and, writing her testimony in a Book of Mormon and then giving it to him. He has now agreed to let us teach him. I met him for the first time a month or two ago, and there he seemed like a man who was lost in life and had no hope for anything with a rugged look. But now, nearly a month later he is a changed new man, with the Spirit of God working on him. He now has hope, a purpose for life and even has cleaned up his physical appearance. That is what this gospel does, it changed people from the inside out!

I love you all and hope you all are having a great week adn doing something everyday to strengthen your testimony! The church is true!
