Letter from February 27th, 2012

So, this week was a little difficult. We found some really cool people to teach and we were going to set baptismal dates the next visit. However, when we returned they were not there, and we have had trouble finding them again. I am really excited to work with the Fuentealbas, a new senior missionary couple from Chile, I think they are going to be a great addition to the ward I am serving in. Elder Fuentealba served as a Stake President and a temple sealer. So he is going to bring spiritual power to the ward. We are still waiting for a bishop. The ward has not had one for a year and really needs one.

As for a good spiritual story this week, I have one. Yesterday we really saw the Lord guiding us. We were knocking doors in several parts of the sector and we had the idea to go follow up on some old contacts that we did. The people who we passed by initially seemed OK. People that might let us in, but who wouldn´t progress towards baptism. When we passed by them, they both let us in and are both really receptive. One is a man who wants more unity in his family and wants to follow God. It was amazing how the Lord changed his heart over the 4-ish weeks we have been trying to pass by and get into his house. He obviously had been prepared by the Lord over the past few weeks to be ready to hear the gospel. Hopefully all turns out well with him.

Anyway, I hope you are all doing well this week. Have a great time!


Elder Taylor Thomas
