Getting A "Big Hug" From The Spirit

Hey fam bam,

We had a really great week. We found lots of new people while looking for inactive members that are golden! We have planned some appointments for them this week and look to invite the Spirit strongly with them so he can testify of the truth of all we share. Very exciting! 

In other news, we have Tania's and Luisa's baptism lined up for tomorrow and they are super set! We also had a cool experience this week with Luisa. We went over to teach her and we started going over the commandments. I taught the second commandment and asked her if she had any questions. She replied that she did and started asking what "true and living God" meant. She started to ask if God and Jesus Christ really did exist and if they did, where they were and how we can say we know if we have never seen them. As she talked, I felt very strongly the presence of the Holy Spirit and after she was done I asked her what she was feeling. She replied that she felt a really good warm feeling on the inside and that it felt like she was sweating on the inside. I then asked her if she knew what it was and she said she didn't. I told her it was the Spirit and that it was testifying to her and to us that Christ does indeed live and that we know all things through the Spirit. I asked her how she felt in church and she said when she was there she felt as if someone was giving her a big hug. I then testified that that was also the spirit and reminded her of the other times we had felt it together. We focused her on that and that the way to receive it in fulness in our lives is to be baptized. It was a marvelous experience for the spirit to answer her own question and help give her the strength to use her agency for good and continue to prepare for her baptism. Yay! 

Good things are going to happen and December will truly be a month of miracles!  Elder Cadena and I have noticed a change in the people and a different spirit about them and that they are more open. We know that it is the spirit of Christ touching the hearts of the people to open them up for the message they will receive through us. Yeah! We are super excited to be doing missionary work right now and are ready to receive an outpouring of blessings from the Lord. 

Well, that's about it! I love you all! Have a great week!

¡Ten fe y se obediente!

Todo mi amor,
Elder San Diego
