A Lot of New Investigators

Querida Familia,

Hola Hola!! Sounds like you've all had a busy week! I'm super jealous of the girls all going back to school. Its really bizarre not to be doing the same.

Things are going well here. We found a lot of new investigators this past week, which is exciting. Maria y Luis seem to be doing well. We stopped by to talk to them for just a few minutes the other day, and I asked Luis if he had prayed about the Book of Mormon. He said he had, but he didn't get an answer. But, he said he thinks that means he needs to keep reading. Which is really good. I don't know why he didn't get an answer though, its kind of frustrating. I really think that he has the desire to know, I just don't know if he really believes that it possibly could be true- and that might be holding him back from getting an answer. Or maybe he just hasn't recognized the answer. I don't know. Its basically all Hermana Summers and I talk about during our companionship study, how to help him.

Well, I don't feel like I have any exciting stories for you today. Been a pretty normal week. Finding people, teaching people, being disappointed when people cancel appointments or don't show up for church, etc. The weather has been kind of spooky. We've seen some weird storms. Its a real reminder that Illinois is part of Tornado Alley. We were driving the other day to an appointment when it was storming, and we could see the clouds start to twist and turn into a funnel. Luckily, nothing came of it, but it was still super spooky.

We had an awesome lesson with one of our investigators Silvia this past Sunday, and we were able to have some of our friends Josh and Miel there. The spirit was so strong that Silvia shared some stuff about her difficulties with her boyfriend that she hasn't shared with us before. Josh was able to give her a blessing and he said some awesome things that had to be lead by the spirit. He didn't know that she has some girls in California that she wants to teach about the gospel and she wants them to get baptized. and in the blessing, Josh told her that she would go home and teach her family the gospel and be an example to them. It was awesome awesome awesome.

I LOVE YOU! Let me know how school goes!

Les Quiero,
Hermana Brown
