WEEK - 81 Neza/Pantitlan Zone (Senior ZL)

Hola Familia!!

Elder Ras here in Mexico City! Everything is just great here! My companion and I baptized Mariana’s son this week, Rodolfo.

He is going to do awesome! When we confirmed Jose, his wife attended also! That was the real miracle!!! Dulirza went to go talk to her at her work and she shared with her how her son changed after going to EFY, and the miracle in their family. Jose’s wife, Guadalupe, must have felt the Spirit because she decided to go to Church, and afterwards we saw that she had changed her attitude towards us. She decided to go with us to the Visitor’s Center and she loved it! We saw “The Family is Ordained of God”, and she really liked that. We are going to do a Family Home Evening with them tonight and program her for her baptismal date for the 15 of August.

This week we moved to a better house, because the other one was kind of falling apart. The water got in through the window and got one of my suitcases wet where I had a lot of my books and letters and things I wanted to keep!! Oh well! We moved to the new house and it is great! The best part is that the balcony has a great view of the international airport!! When we finish everything and before going to bed we watch the planes for a while, just because its so fascinating to see how they take off and land. We’re a pretty funny sight!

a valued treasure . . . . even in Mexico ! ! !

Relaxing for a moment at a members house . . . . . no wonder you are walking and talking in your sleep ! ! !

typical street to do contacting in Elder Ras's area

The Lord is really blessing us!! We contacted a lady named Guadalupe, and she is golden! She was in the original open house of the Mexico City Temple, and told us about the peace she felt in the celestial room, and told us she thought then that she wanted to be baptized! We contacted her, and invited her to Church, when we arrived a few minutes late to pick her up, she decided to go without us and get to church on her own! And she did! Wow! She's going to be baptized the 15 of this month.

Well I love you guys and hope everything is well!

Make a missionary's day, give a referral!!
