Week Sixty Five
Hey family, hope you had a great week.
This week was crazy. I was running all over the place with divisions and baptism interviews but it was all pretty fun.
Spiritual experience of the week was as follows: Our investigator Ignacio is still super awesome. One of the days while we were on divisions we went over and visited him. The thing with him is that he really wants to get baptized and he loves everything about the church, but because of certain personal problems, he cant get baptized yet. We were teaching prayer and he understood it perfectly. He explained to us some great experiences that he had with prayer and said that he knew what we were teaching him was true. Then came the tough question. Why can't I get baptized yet? Well, in place of telling him some kind of half truth I told him the straight truth. "Brother Lopez, first things first, you need to get married to your partner, or you guys need to live in different houses. Second, you need to take a special interview to help with some of the experiences you've had in the past." Well, he took it pretty well and committed to get married this week. Yesterday at church he said that he had the date set and that we were invited to attend his wedding this week. That was pretty crazy, but it was definitely an answer to my prayers. Sometimes you just gotta talk straight to people.
Have a good week everybody.
