December 5, 2016

This week was wonderful! I saw so many miracles! 

On pday we made Tacos!!!

We taught a lesson in the rain on Wednesday! I gave my umbrella to our investigator and we taught in the rain. Then on Sunday we left our umbrellas at home because it was really hot in the morning and there were not many clouds. As we were about to leave a lesson it started pouring, so we ended up walking to our next lesson in the cold rain!

We ate Doge Doce together on Friday!

This past Sunday we had 12 investigators at Church!!! It was super exciting! 

A few weeks ago I told a story about a man who showed up to sacrament meeting. 

On Sunday November 6th we were in Sacrament meeting and sitting at the front. A member came up and said there was a man at the back of the chapel that just showed up. We rushed back to sit and talk with him. He told us that the night before he had a dream that there were two girls that invited him to an activity but before he saw the location he woke up. The next morning he left his house to go for a walk, not knowing where he was going. He walked by the church and for some reason felt like he should enter. He walked in and sat at the back feeling a little sad and confused. At that moment we walked over and sat on either side of him. He started to cry and a little later said that when we sat next to him he felt that two angels sat next to him.... 
We talked with him that afternoon and learned more about his life. Then again on the next Wednesday. He was going through some personal problems. He wasnt really accepting our message. We decided to return the next day. He still didn´t accept our message and he didn't want to change. We continued visiting him almost everyday or so. About a week later he made the decision to change his life and follow what we were teaching him and the things that God had put into his life. After he made the decision to change and rely on the Savior he really started to progress. We set his baptism for 2 weeks later, December 3rd and he accepted! 

This past Saturday December 3rd, Valdecir was baptized! It was a really happy day! When he came up from the water he had a smile of pure joy on his face.

I am so grateful that I had the opportunity to see him change his life through the help of the Atonement of Jesus Christ and His gospel. I know this Gospel is true and that through Christ we can change our lives. 

I hope you all have a wonderful week! 
Love, Sister Hancock
