One after the other

July 10, 2017

Well this week was pretty good..... no, it was amazing:

1. Well I had my third official English class this last week. It´s kinda interesting to see how all of the Latinos are progressing in their English, and how the gringos are losing it. So every English class I have I need to include a song, so why not use the primary songs? Well I will tell you why not. Because apparently nobody knew the song Little Purple Pansies and I was left to come up with another song in less than a minute. 

2. This last Saturday we all went (as a Zone activity) to the temple. The point of this trip was to bring investigators to the grounds to get to know the temple and know a basic background of what we do inside the temple. After we did that you could just see the excitement on each of the investigators faces when they found out what they could do inside the temple and have an eternal family. It truly was awesome. 

Well as you can see from the title we had another baptism this week. Her name is Marina Díaz and apparently she was one of those investigators that we call an eternal investigator. One Sunday (a couple of Sundays ago) she randomly showed up and asked us to visit her. Well we visited her and she told us her experience about her testimony of Joseph Smith. Well after that we placed a baptism date on her and we started to work with her. She understood everything and accepted it with joy. But one thing that was (and still is) hard is her family. Her family is super rough and don´t really support her in what she does (besides her uncle). We've been working with her and her family but I just know that little by little her family´s hearts will soften and they will all go to the temple one day to be sealed forever. 
I love you all,
Elder Garbett
