We are sharing the computers today so I don't have much time to write. But I do want to tell you all about the Chavez family again because they continue to amaze me. We had the baptism this week on Saturday and it was such an uplifting experience. It was not announced in church the week before because it was such a quick baptism, but we still had over 40 people show up and support Marley Chavez in her decision. Her siblings did the talks and each of them did an amazing job, which really wasn't expected since they knew so little about the gospel just a few short weeks ago. Then on Sunday they got up and bore their testimonies about the strength the gospel gives and the joy that has entered into their home as a result. This morning we got a call from sister Chavez that started out a little scary but ended as another testimony builder. She said that they have been praying lately about whether attending church and reading the scriptures are what they should really be doing right now. She said that this morning her youngest son, just 4, came to her and said that he had a dream last night that Christ took him to church and read the Book of Mormon with him and that he knew they were doing the right thing, and that she has not smoked since we asked her to stop and this is the first time since she was 18. What greater miracle could I expect then seeing a whole family come to Christ, and us being able to be a part of it.
Well I'm sorry its so short, but I have to get off now. Real fast a couple other things that happened this week:
Nate Allen-Arve wants to get baptised the 21st of this month, which I will tell you more about later because its amazing.
We were able to attend the temple yesterday and the Temple President said something great, that "Salvation is a personal matter, but exaltation is a family matter!".
My companion is starting to walk again.
Love you all!
These are some pictures Elder Inman sent us this week, I'll caption them with what he wrote on the back...
