Following The Instructions Of The Spirit

Hey guys!

This past week me and Elder Jay finished off great. We baptized one girl whose name is Becky Kim. We had her baptism on Wednesday and it was great and the rest of her family was there to support her. We also put 5 baptismal dates this week for this upcoming Saturday and will confirm them and Geovanni also. This past week we had some amazing experiences with some of the investigators we found that will be baptized. 

One day we decided to dedicate time to the Lord and follow the instructions of the Spirit as we walked around. We prayed specifically for the guidance of the Lord during that time and set off to follow the indications of the Spirit. As we were passing by a certain house, I started to feel the Spirit so I stopped and looked at it. Then we heard a little girl crying and I felt the Spirit even more. So we went and knocked on the door and presented ourselves with the lady and she said we could come back the next day. So we went but when we were knocking, no one came to the door. Then all of a sudden, a guy came walking up to us and said that he thought he knew Elder Jay and that he had seen him before. He was a little drunk at the time so we went walking and talking with him some more and set an appointment for the next day. When we went by the next day we found him and we went to the park with him to sit down and talk. He really needed emotional support and also wanted to seriously change his life and start over again. We taught him about the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the Spirit came super strong. We asked him how he felt and he said he felt something swell inside of him and that he had a huge calm and peace fall over him. We invited him to follow Jesus Christ and start anew and he said yes. Since then, he has been changing drastically. We taught him about the need to live the Word of Wisdom and he got all of his bottles together one night and we accompanied him as he threw all of his alcohol away in the trash. It was a way cool experience. (way interesting too because he speaks English because he used to live in the U.S. so we have taught him entirely in English.) His name is Chris.

Also, all of our appointments fell through Saturday and we were walking to go visit an inactive member when a guy named Paul, who we had met on the street one time and went to visit him but never found him, saw us and called us over. We went over and entered into his house and taught him about the Godhead. When the Spirit was present we identified it with him and invited him to be baptized and he also accepted.

There are another 3 who will be baptized this Saturday with them so I am looking forward to when they make that covenant with God. Also, we had a mission dodgeball tournament today and my zone rocked and beat everyone and so we were the champions!

And one last news!  I just got moved up today by President Tervort as the Zone Leader in a zone called Cuautepec!!  Awesome.  My new companion is Elder Johnson and we are going to tear it up!

Have a great week! Love you all!

¡Ten fe y se obediente!

Todo mi amor,
Elder San Diego
