Hermana Pinto is really awesome. She has a really strong testimony and knows how to teach really well. She also has really great ideas to help us find new investigators. I'm really glad that I am her companion. She is a lot more quiet than my other companions, but she actually has a great sense of humor. She also really likes chocolate and likes to make brownies... there's no way I'm gonna complain about that! I'm learning a lot from her and we have high hopes for this transfer.
Also this past week, we had an entire less active family come to church! We were able to rescue two members of the family, and we're hoping to rescue the other two within the next two weeks. I am so happy for this family! We had a Family Home Evening with them last night, and the father told us that he is beginning to understand the purpose of repentance and the importance of the family. He said that as a family, they're putting forth all of their effort to change their lives and be unafraid to stand up for what they believe. When I heard him say that, I felt such joy in my heart. I prayed that God would bless this family to help them stay on this path to endure to the end. Now, our goal is to help them prepare to enter the temple and be sealed as a family for eternity.
Other than that, nothing really new! Just working hard and doing my best. So this week one of the recent converts of the Elders, Hermano Santiago, baptized his son, T. It was a really great baptism! In less than one year, they can go to the temple to be sealed as a family! What an awesome experience it was to help with the baptism.
