The Cleansing 7/3/17

we went to china buffet again with Agustin a recent convert and almost exlpoded again haha. we had a bomb lesson with Javier and Elder Ortega asked him so what are your plans for after your baptism. javier paused for a moment and then he said that he wants a calling in the church. wow what a thing to hear right?:) we are so beyond grateful for this experience.

so we've been having some great visits with Javier Silva, its amazing to see someone grasp the book of mormon and truly apply the principles in it. a member came with us to a lesson and told him that he can just see the power of the spirit working through him as he studies on his own. the power that comes from the book of mormon is so real, just ponder and pray. He continues to tell us how he feels the spirit and how he wants any calling after he gets baptized. His next goal after that is to be sealed. we also had interviews with the mission president and it went very well. being an example is key when you are a leader and just in general. do whats right always. we got caught up with some things at the office after the interview and just as we were leaving we got a call from a guy that just moved down with his GF and he needed help giving a her a blessing. it was honestly perfect timing cause we were on our way back. we gave the blessing and just as we left plantation and we got another call for another blessing somewhere else close by, its crazy how things work out. we met oscar who just got out of federal prison he's a pretty dope guy. also someone tried to snatch our bikes off of the bike rack one night haha que awkward cause we were sitting in the car hahaha. on friday we had a crazy day, after weekly planning we got a call that a member we just visited the day before was in the hospital and she needed a blessing so we raced over there and the room was empty.. we thought awesome... ha found out she just went downstairs for an mri and it takes around an hour. so we left and prosed around the hospital well an hour later we came back and it still was empty but her husband was there now. so we started talking to him they had just got their paper and recommends to go to the temple and be sealed. they are in their late 60's. well the wife finally makes it back and she is in super bad condition it honestly looked like she was going to die. they told us to leave the room and like 15 other nurses and doctors rushed in w/ machines. the husband told us that whenever they came close to God something happens but he knows that god always wins. we then gave her a blessing and everything is going to be alright. Hmna trevino came by and was cheering her on and telling her that everything will be fine. later that night we went by a LA that we have been trying to contact and we knock the door and i hear some people singing to what sounds like corridos so i thought sick these people are going to be awesome! this lady opened the door and immediatly said come in, she had a veil over her head and it was kinda weird and just as we set food in the door we had no idea what we were getting into, we ended up walking into the middle of their "church service" and it was actually kinda scary, all the women had veils over thier faces then they all got on their knees, cried and screamed to god all of their sins. it was actually very frightening and sad to see the look in one of the persons eyes, there was a girl there that had to be like 16 and she just seem full of fear and worry..we honestly felt super bad for all of them, we tried to say a few words but the spirit was just telling us to get out of there. man many times out here do you come across things that really really push and try and break your testimony, remember who you are and what you stand for!!
also Javier was Baptized!!!!:)
