El Libro de Mormon y Conversión

Hola familia y amigos!! Buenas tardes :)

this week we had another great week in barrio primavera. i do love this ward and the people we find here. its amazing how the Gospel can bless peoples lives, and how so many people really are trying to follow Christ.

this week we set a baptismal date for one of our investigatores, Carolina. she is the only member of her family that is not baptized, and we have been working with her for a while. but this week i think she finally realized the importance of getting baptized and how it will help her in her life!! :) woohoo!! and she put the date herself, and so i think this will help her be motivated and feel prepared to be baptized. 

We have also had a LOT of people ask a LOT of questions about the Book of Mormon this week. i have learned that it is sooo important for someone to gain a testimony of the Book of Mormon. and not just be convinced. but be converted. to really know it is true throught the Holy Ghost. its the only way that someone really can be converted if they get an answer through the Holy Ghost. the people we were teaching wanted the logical side to the Book of Mormon, all the exact facts... but sometimes we have to rely on faith and dont have all the answers.

Also this week we contacted a few new investigatores. we have been using the document "The Family, A Proclamation to the World", and wow. its such a great document! when the people read this, they are always so happy to hear that this Church focuses on the family and that the family is so important. they also love to hear how they can have more unity in a Christ-centered home. :) I am so grateful for profets that show us how we need to live, and how we can have more happiness. i know that the words they speak are truly from God, "Porque no hará nada Jehova, sin que revele sus secretos a sus siervos los profetas."

And as always.. the adventures of me and my companion have continued this week.... as we enjoy pancakes at night after planning and the funny experiences that always happen!

This week the other hermanas in the ward had an investigator family come to church with them, and one of the sons of the family is deaf, and so he talks in sign language, and my comp can talk in sign language too! so it was neat to watch her communicate with him through sign language! i also received my name in sign language... that has to do with my hair! (haha of course!)

This weeek i realized the importance of having charity and Christ-like love for others. When we have charity, we really can develop the other attributes of Christ as well. When we have charity, we serve, are more dilligent, are obediente, more patient, and have more faith and hope. Charity is so important in missionary work, and i have learned so much more about this atribue of Christ as i have been here on my misison. i am so grateful to be here!! there is always something new i can learn each day, and its amazing to see how God works each day. :) sé que la Iglesia es verdadera y que Jesucristo nos ama. :)

con amor,
Hermana Warburton
