Week 38 (Buin with Hmna Arias)

This week was a good one! It's starting to get hot! I'm glad you got my letter! that was fast! I sent it like 3 weeks ago I think. BTW, you never told me what you want from ME for Christmas.

This week we have been working a lot with Ana and two other families.
Ana keeps doing REALLY well and little by little we are seeing miracles with her spouse because he now likes to come sit in and listen to us when he's not working and each time he talks less and listens more. He has some of the CRAZIEST questions, but we just try to take the advice from "Preach My Gospel" and use the Book of Mormon to respond to his questions, and we always invite him to pray and ask God. This week we gave him a Book of Mormon and he read the introduction and the testimonies of the 3 and 8 witnesses and also of Joseph Smith. Whenever we bring videos to watch with Ana, he enjoys watching them. This week he told us that he is studying the Book of Mormon to support Ana, and to be able to be there and talk about these things with her for when the day comes that we missionaries aren't there any more, ¡tan tierno!  [so cute!]  Haha the cool thing is that we know and understand the power of the spirit in reading the Book of Mormon, so we are excited to see the miracles that come with him studying (as long as he doesn't harden his heart against it). They may be slow in coming, but if he really comes to feel and recognize the truth of these things he will be a very devout future member.
The other two families we are working with is the family of Viviana and Valentina's family, she is a jovencita [young woman] that started listening to us when we were trying to teach a very disordenado hijo [disorderly son] of a menos activa [less active member], she came along distracting him (she's his ex-GF) so we invited her to listen...hoping to help keep the distractions and what not to a minimum (the very first thing we showed them both was a short video on the law of chastity LOL but they kept listening! hah).  Then she started reading the BofM and fulfilling her commitments etc., so we put an emphasis on her and ended up meeting with her Mom and her brother and now their whole family is listening to us (them 3). The mom is super great too!  The biggest challenge for these 2 families is getting them to church at this point, but we are giving it all we've got and are just excited to work with them and to see ALL the many miracles the Lord is blessing us with.
LOVE YOU FAMILY!!!!  Cuidense MUCHO!  [Take GOOD care!]  Un poquito mas que un mes hasta que puedo hablar con ustedes por skype! :D [Just a little more than a month until I can talk with you on Skype].  but whos counting right?? ;) estoy animada para hablar con usted daddy (en Español) y por el resto de ustedes, espero que estén practicando su español ;) ;) [I am excited to talk with you (in Spanish) Daddy and for the rest of you, I hope that you are practicing your Spanish].
