These Last Two Years Have Changed My Life Forever (May 12, 2014)

Last Blog
This week was a good one and bad one. We were able to set up two more dates for baptism. But didn't have too many lessons. We are working with Fabian who you met on Skype who should be good for his goal the 31st of May and also his cousin Diego. Last night we taught Carlos with Jaime, who also is getting ready and Carlos testified about how the apostasy ended with the Book of Mormon and also testified that doing the things the church says has united his family and changed his life. He said I quit drugs and drinking, (Then looked at me) And said and smoking!! I'm a stud!! haha  And everyone started laughing. His testimony filled the room with excitement to make the same decisions he's making. So at the end I invited Jaime to be baptized once he gets an answer. He also is the only one who isn't baptized in his family! He accepted to read and pray. Also his daughter, Jessica, who we baptized a little while ago shared her testimony about the Book of Mormon and he was like yeah I've never felt what she did but will ask and if I feel it I'll be baptized. Awesome!

Then we found a family who's dad is a cop. Right away they liked us and they gave us this really expensive juice! Will be a good future Mormon family. I'm stoked for this sector and all I have learned and grown from it.

These last two years have changed my life forever. I know what I want, I know where I am going and know that I want to return to my father. I know that through Jesus Christ we can do anything and become more like our Heavenly Father everyday. Faith is the root of everything in becoming like Him and being a success, reaching your dreams and helping others give up who they are for becoming the best they can be. It has changed my eternal destiny. I will continue living to get to the Celestial Kingdom and having everybody get there with me. Thank you all for helping me get out here, I have such an experience and to feel the effects of the Atonement in my life and the lives that have surrounded me. I bare these things and testify that Christ lives, that God is goodness. In the name of Jesus Christ. Amen

Editor's Note:  Zac must think since we will see him in 2 weeks that we don't need to hear much from him. :)  When he called on Mother's Day after about 25 minutes he said he had to go and had things to do. We forgave him because he is coming home so soon. :)

We don't have very much time to write. But it sounds awesome your week and Dads weeks! Sounds awesome and sounds like a lot of people will be there! (For his homecoming).

I've had an awesome week. We have the COOLEST investigators. Carlos is getting baptized my last day. Fabian his cousin are going to wait cause they told us we want good testimonies first and we said that's perfect. So I think they will the week after I leave. Bummer but its all good. It's still cool to help the Lord prepare people for baptism! Love you!
