E-mail Week 53: July 24, 2017. Norma's Faith to Obey The Word of Wisdom.
So this email is going to be quick, because I don't have time, but this week was
We had 4 interchanges and I got to know all of our Zone. I was in
Melgar, which is a party city, but also looks like a jungle and is way pretty. I
also got to go to Espinal which is one of the hottest places in the mission. It was way awesome to be in these intercambios. I love all the Elders of
our Zone and am so grateful to be with them and to learn from them.
we had a great experience with an investigador, Norma. She has been drinking
coffee all her life, 4 times every day. And we explained to her about the Word
of Wisdom and she was quite surprised but she accepted so that she could be more in
line with God. It was amazing to see her faith--that just to live God's
commandments she was willing to change all the culture of her family. And I am
so grateful for these amazing blessings that God has given me to know these
I love you guys.
This is Melgar, a baptism that we had in the District.
