Week #53 *August 3, 2015

Hey everyone,

This week has been amazing.  I feel like we are finally starting to see the fruits of our labors.

First off this week we had a lesson with Marjorie and we taught her about the plan of salvation and we invited her to be baptized the 29th of August and she said yes.  She was so excited it was so amazing and the spirit was so strong.  Now we are just working hard to prepare her and she is doing so great as she has a lot of support for the branch.  We are so excited for her.

This week we had a lesson with the familia Hueta (just the parents)  We taught about the plan of salvation and the absolutely loved it.  We were able to clear up a lot of their questions and they now understand a lot of things better.  Marienela asked us why her baptism before isn’t enough and we were able to explain to her about the priesthood and she understood it all very well and after we asked her how  she felt about it and she said that she just felt peace the more that we shared.  Her husband went to church Sunday and really like she doesn’t feel ready yet, but they are truly progressing now we are just wanting to work with their kids more as well so that we can help the whole family. 

We have been working with the members a lot this week to prepare them to go to the temple as the branch temple trip is coming up.  We are so blessed to have temple so close it truly is the most amazing place.  I have loved being able to teach the members more about the temple this week and see their excitement as they are preparing family names to be able to take with them.

We are working with a few other people as well that I am going to tell you more about next week as my time is running out.  I am just loving the work right now.  I am growing to love this branch more and more everyday.  Our mission leader is awesome and has been helping so much.  I feel like we have had more member support than every before and it has made such a huge difference in the work.

I am so grateful for this gospel in my life and for everyone of you and for the support you give me.

Love ya,
Hermana Stringham
