So the subject helps express a lot of our week. This morning my companion told me that I was having a full on conversation in spanish asking people if they have gone to the temple and if so when they are coming back. And that just kind of describes a big chunk of our week of trying to get all of our members to go to the temple because a lot haven't ever gone. So I have the same invitation for you! Go to the temple:)

But wow what a great great week! We have seen some good progression with our investigators but have also seen some sad things happen this week. But obviously the good outweighs the bad:) we had some great lessons with the best investigator ever Iris! I just love her! She is progressing so well and always talks about the change that she has seen in herself since she has started meeting with us. She is still in the process of trying to get work off on Sundays but this week she found out that her boss is Mormon! And he got super excited that she is meeting with missionaries. So now she is just training someone so that that person can work for her on Sunday. Milagros! She is on date for baptism for June:)

We had a cool experience to see how the spirit really does work through us. One day Hermana Stacey and I both had the prompting that we should go over to this certain members house. So we went over sat down, sang a song, said a prayer and then I was just like "the truth is we are here because the spirit told us to be and because we think you are sad, are you sad?" When I said that I was like hmmm... that might have been kind of a weird thing to say.... but after she just started crying and told us what was going on. It was cool because something I had read that morning went along with her situation completely so we were able to open up the scriptures to find the comfort she needed. She was so appreciative:)

Carlos got the priesthood on Sunday! Yay! He is doing so well, he comes to lessons with us all the time and really is just a wonderful member present, he helps us out a ton. He is so sweet! The other day he called us and was like asking us how he could get involved or sign up to pay for our groceries and help us out with food(he already takes us to dinner every Friday) he is such a sweet guy and loves the gospel with all his heart!

Thanks for the prayers and support! Have a wonderful week!

Love,

Hermana Stewart
