Trent - 5 Months

Hola Everyone!

Love and miss you all! This week was awesome. We have baptisimal dates with 2 investigators, Camila and Edmundo. Camila is ready for baptism. She knows what we have shared with her is true and she is reading the Book of Mormon every day. She wants to be baptized, but her mom will not let her and she's only 16. Her mom does not like our Church...classic. We finally got her to let us have a lesson in her house so that she could listen to what her daughter is learning. I was really scared at first because this woman is straight cold and intimidating haha. She straight up told me that she'll never let her daughter get baptized even if she gets a spiritual confirmation of the truthfulness of the Book of Mormon. Haha so I had that in mind while entering into her house to teach her. Elder Sanchez and I were feeling really nervous because we just wanted to have a great lesson so the Mom's heart could be softened. We said a prayer before and we just felt this peace that everything was going to be ok. And it was. We had an awesome lesson with Camila and her parents. The Spirit was there. There was just this peace in the house and I know Camila's mom felt it. It was awesome. We invited Camila's parents to read the Book of Mormon as a family and we promised them that the same peace would always be in their home if they did it. They accepted! The mom still doesnt want Camila to be baptized, YET, but the Spirit changes. El EspĂ­ritu cambia! And that's the experience for the week. The Spirit changes the hearts of people. I know it because it's changed mine! I love you and miss you all. Hasta la proxima semana!
