Great Contact!!

We contacted in a part of the area where we haven´t worked much and were able to fix some good appointments to return. I have been traveling and don´t know how all of those appointments turned out, but at least the one I went to was great. I went contacting with a new missionary who is here in Barranquilla for a minor surgery and we talked with an off-duty soldier who told us that he doesn´t trust any church in the world, but he does believe in God. We talked for about half an hour in the contact, which is extremely rare, and then fixed an appointment to return.

In the second appointment, we talked with him and his wife and were able to answer a lot of their questions. They accepted the commitment to read the Book of Mormon and pray and said they´ll think about going to church, although it´s tough for them because of all the bad experiences they´ve had. At the end of the lesson, we asked if they´ll be baptized if they receive an answer from God, and the soldier said that of course he will.

Those are the experiences that really make the mission worthwhile, when I can talk to someone who is hunting answers, and give them to him. Although we taught them outside in front of the house (it´s pretty hot, so everybody drags the chairs outside to talk at night) and there were cars passing and noise, the Spirit was present in the lesson and they could both feel it.
I´m glad to read your letters, too, and to see that everything´s going well. I hope everything continues thus and will be writing again in about a week.
¡Chao, pues!
