God's Love Never Ceases

Exodus 33:11 And the Lord spake unto Moses face to face, as a man speaketh unto his friend. And he turned again into the camp: but his servant Joshua, the son of Nun, a young man, departed not out of the tabernacle.

This week one of our investigators had a doubt about Joseph Smith. How is it that a young boy of 14 years old could talk to God and Jesus Christ? We invited her to pray specifically to know if Joseph Smith was a true prophet of God and she immediately thought of Moses and how he couldn't see God. We responded with this scripture saying that God the Father talked to Moses face to face. We talked of the necessity of prophets in these latter days. We bore our testimony of Joseph Smith and how we came to know that he was chosen and called of God to restore His true church upon the face of the earth one last time. I think it was an event so spectacular the First Vision when God the Father and His Son Jesus Christ appeared to Joseph to tell him and the world that Their love never ceases and still talks to prophets today to lead and guide us.
 Hey Everyone!

This was a pretty fun week! We had lots of opportunities to teach this week to our investigators. Soraya, José and Mauro are progressing very well and are our next prospects for baptism. We have been finding new investigators and working hard.

Transfers are today, Elder Sanchez and I will be companions for the 3rd transfer here in Albatros. I am excited for this transfer because we will finally have some convert baptisms. Presidente Gabaldón joined the 2 zones in Mazatlan into 1 so now we are one big zone. I won't be the district leader this transfer and I think that will help me and my companion focus on our investigators more and be more productive.

Elder Juarez "died" (he finished his 2 years)

Our investigator, Soraya, attended church this Sunday for the first time. She is so awesome! She has a special gift and we know she will be such a help in the Family History department. We are going to challenge her to baptism this week and put a baptismal date. José, we had already challenged and was super excited to be baptized and then his aunts talked to him and said it is dangerous for him to go to church with his condition that he cant walk and so he lost his spirit to go to church and be baptized. We made a promise to him in the name of Christ that if he goes to church and is baptized he will be healed from this sickness in his legs. We felt by the spirit we should say that.
