They Came to Church!

Hola Familia!
Well, just another week here in Shilcayo. I don’t have any fantastic stories to tell you this week but we did have a really cool experience.  On Monday night we found a new family and we had absolutely one of the most frustrating lessons ever. A big problem we have here in the jungle is that the people really don’t understand very fast and when they do understand it is in a completely different way than we want them to. We had a lesson and the dad of this family just get telling us that all of the churches are true because we only pray to one God, (he used to be a pastor of a church) and no matter how much we tried to explain the restoration they just could not understand. Even though I was frustrated we scheduled another appointment to come back.  We returned to visit the family a few days later and we taught a lesson about the Sabbath day and why it is important to come to church and they told us that they might come. When people tell us they are going to come to church, it means absolutely nothing.  They usually never come.  However, Sunday morning we got to church and the family showed up. The dad, the mom and their older son all came.  We were so surprised! They came for all three hours and they liked the things that they learned. It was so good that they were able to attend fast and testimonies meeting because they heard a lot of people testify that this is the true and restored church of Jesus Christ. We are going to keep teaching this family and hopefully we can help them understand the restoration a little bit better J the spirit speaks all languages right? I love you all so much and I hope you have a great week. We had transfers and I am staying here in Shilcayo with my companion. Yay!! My companion is the best. Love you!
