The grave we dedicated last week
January 19, 2015

            This week has been pretty crazy.  First we went and had a family home evening with a lady named Morena. Morena is basically the grandma of all of the missionaries.  She is super funny.  During the family home evening we talked about patience and we showed that video of the kids eating the marshmallows.  It was really good. After we were done with the family home evening, Morena made us some cake and she made a ton of it.

            We dedicated a grave a couple of days ago.  The grave is of a recent convert’s brother. The family is really sad about what happened to him.  He died from a car accident and they all visit him every month. That is actually how she found the missionaries and got baptized. The graveyards in South America are very different.  The caskets are stacked up on top of each other and the middle of the grave yard is very open. It is very different than the states and also the caskets are not in the ground; they are above.

            We have been working with an investigator and her name is Maria.  She is awesome.  We had our first lesson a week or so ago and we told her to pray about our message and the Book of Mormon and she did.  The next day we talked with her and she received an answer to her prayers. I know that she knows the Book of Mormon is true, she knows the rests of the gospel is true as well.  We schedule her date of baptism on the 6th of February. 

            So this week has been pretty great for me.  Well I hope you all have a great week, Ciao.
