Yep. Its been a year. If the next passes as fast as the first, I'll see ya real soon ma. 

Well this week was a highlight week. We've been working lots with the Fam G. They dropped a bomb on us this week and told us they are moving to Dolores Hidalgo soon. Soon here is like a week and a half...I'm sure they'll need at least one suitcase dedicated to all the pamphlets, pictures, drawings, and Books of Mormon we have given them. Its a big family and each one of them wants there own folletos --so its a ton.  Best news is there will be a baptism this week! This is a huge accomplishment for us, them, and the ward! It's been about a year since we have have baptized in this ward!  But Fani (8) Paula (11) and Angeles (15) will be making sacred covenants with God on Friday night :)  You're all invited ;)

We had a very special experience last night. We decided to fast with them so that they would have a confirmation that this is right. We started the fast with them and then we went home. We left homework with them to read 3 Nephi 27. My comp and I, after we planned that night, kneeled down and prayed for this very loved Family so that these girls would receive an answer and know that God was pleased with their choice. We prayed that God's will would be done and not ours. During the prayer the sweet sensation of the Spirit confirmed in our hearts that we have done our part, and He will do the rest. I sat in my bed very grateful to my Father in Heaven that listens to every prayer. He answered ours and today we learned that He answered theirs. Today I witnessed the mighty change of heart that comes with confirmation of the Spirit. We read together with this family the following scriptures:

Alma 37: 35-37

 35 O, remember, my son, and learn wisdom in thy youth; yea, learn in thy youth to keep the commandments of God.
 36 Yea, and cry unto God for all thy support; yea, let all thy doings be unto the Lord, and whithersoever thou goest let it be in the Lord; yea, let all thy thoughts be directed unto the Lord; yea, let the affections of thy heart be placed upon the Lord forever.
 37 Counsel with the Lord in all thy doings, and he will direct thee for good; yea, when thou liest down at night lie down unto the Lord, that he may watch over you in your sleep; and when thou risest in the morning let thy heart be full of thanks unto God; and if ye do these things, ye shall be lifted up at the last day.

I know that this is God's church restored to the earth through the prophet Joseph. I know that because I too, like these young women, have received an answer from God through the Holy Ghost.

From Tam:  Weston always sends a family night "lesson" for us to read or discuss on Monday night.. this week it was a talk given at BYU titled "Our Refined Heavenly Home" by Elder Douglas L. Callister.   Here is the link....  Weston also asked that we print it out and put it on his bed so he can read it when he gets home.  Its under his pillow!  HAHA.  Great instruction!
