Just Another Week in the field bearing testimony

Oi familia e amigos! 

This week we were able to find Maristela again! 
She said that no one said anything to her and she still wants to come to church and get baptized! We read a little of the Book of Mormon with her and it was really good, but we weren´t able to go back there, she cancelled. Not totally sure why. 

Other than that nearly everything fell through this week. No one came to church again, and Maristela was the only investigator we got a lesson with, and a couple of new investigators. 
We were able to rescue two copies of the Book of Mormon this week, so that was awesome! Really it was a blessing, because we weren't able to get them back for a while and the people were really understanding as to why we needed them back. 

We were knocking doors and a man answered and began to tell us how wrong we are and how we are being deceived. That was super sad. The man told us that he ripped up and burned a Book of Mormon and that it was all phony. It was super sad. But I was able to stand and bear testimony that I knew that the Book of Mormon was true, independent of if he knew it or not. I knew it and I knew that God had answered my prayer, just as He will answer the prayer of any of his children who will ask with a "sincere heart and with real intent having faith" that they will receive an answer, and they will receive! That is a promise from a prophet of God. If you don´t know if the Book of Mormon is true, go home, read it, specifically read Moroni 10:3-5 and get on your knees and ask God. He will answer you and you will know! 

I am so grateful for the Book of mormon and for the answers to many of life´s questions that are found in that sacred book. Never deny the power of the Book of Mormon. 

Sorry it´s short this week, really not much is happening. 
Although, we did find out that we have 12+ investigators who have all accepted the baptismal invitation. The problem is having lessons with them and getting them to church so that we can mark baptismal dates. Please pray for them! (Pray that they will keep their commitments!  Prayers work!)
A Pretty Morning

Love you all! 
Have a great week!
