The highlight of this week would be a referral that we received from a girl from Honduras who was visiting here. She has now since gone home, but right before she sent us the number of her friend, Luis, and told us to call. Before she sent it to us, she said she felt hesitant because in her words, "He is very Catholic." Well we contacted him and made an appointment. The first appointment went so well. He was actually very open and sincere and said several times how much he just wanted to find which church was true. In preparation for our next lesson with him we decided to do the Plan of Salvation. We began doing a roleplay and made it almost to the end when Anziano Jensen just stopped and said that it just didn't feel right. He suggested that we try teaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It came unexpectedly but I agreed though and we went ahead and taught it later that evening. During the lesson the spirit came so powerfully. Luis himself actually asked several questions about baptism. As we began talking about baptism the thought came to me to pull out the bible video of Christ's baptism. Anziano Jensen was talking at that point and I didn't want to interrupt so I waited but then a little bit later as Anziano Jensen finished speaking he turned to me and mentioned that we should pull out the baptism video and watch it now. It was the coolest moment! It's nice to know we were both in sink with the spirit. The lesson went so well and we asked Luis if he wanted to be baptized. He said that yes he would very very much. He said in these two meetings he has felt so good and he just wants to be a part of this church. It's so amazing to see how people are being prepared for this gospel!
That's all I have time for now, but love you all! Ciao, Anziano Stucki.
