Happy Thanksgiving!


Happy Thanksgiving.... and MERRY CHRISTMAS!

We taught Ismael this week. He is/was an alcoholic. He's overcoming his addiction, and wants to get closer to God. He has already been to church once, but the first time he went, he didn't like it and didn't want to receive us again. We were persistent, and he told us, "ugh... okay, I'll let you try and convince me one more time".  So we taught him repentance, and the Spirit came like a flip of a light switch and he started feeling the weight of a lot of sins. He accepted a baptismal date, and we offered to give him a blessing.  After the blessing, we took a step back and just waited a second. He paused for a second then said, "I feel a warm little fire in my chest." He felt the Spirit and recognized it!
He came to church, and LOVED it. He volunteered to clean the building and donate blood. He's going to go to two marriage courses this week, and then the 12 step program... All thanks to the awesome member missionaries in my ward here! I love them!

Pics to come mom!

love you

PS Congrats Aubs on the call to San Antonio! You'll kill it out there! :)
