As we have been working with our investigators a little more, we had a fun family home evening with Norma and her two little girls and another family in the ward. We talked about the 3rd and 1st lesson and prepared them for their baptism this next week. They are super excited about this. As we are still working with Norma to stop smoking, which she has been doing GREAT thus far. As well as decide to separate or get married, which she has been acting upon and wants to finalize everything so that she can be baptized.!! We have also been working with John who I talked a little about last week. He too needs to make many decisions, but with the help of members and support as well of Christ, we can do all things and accomplish the goals we want to accomplish.
This week we had Norma and he two kids in church as well as John and Luiz. My companion and I found a lot of new investigators and many of them committed to coming to church. Well Sunday morning, we went and knocked and called just about everyone and we walked to the chapel "solas" :( (alone). When we got to church an investigator we have been teaching for 3 weeks now came in 5 minutes later!! "Luiz" it was one big MIRACLE! It was wonderful to see him and John and Norma and her kids in the house of the Lord.
As we have been working a lot with the word of wisdom this week, I thought I would share a quote I found. (Boyd K. Packer, CR, Oct 1979,29)
God has given us commandments because they are a perfection to us. God created our bodies, now let us take care of something so valuable. AS we do we will be free from addictions, we will have knowledge and power, good health and stability. That many blessings will come to us as we keep the word of wisdom that "the destroying angel will pass by."
