Leap of Faith

This week was really good! We learned a great lesson this week... sometimes you have to jump out of an airplane without a parachute and trust that God will catch you. Or... take a leap of faith ;) haha! In our area we have seen a lot of progression but nobody is making it to baptism for this reason or that. and so this week we decided to take a leap of faith and be direct with the people that we are teaching and their families and trust that God is going to give us the authority to do so. And it works! when we do what Jacob says in chapter 4 and we tell them how it is, then just like moroni teaches us, that authority and pure love of Christ will touch the hearts of the children of men. One of the many experiences that we had, was we went to a house of a part member family and we are teaching the grandaughters of this grandma, but their dad isnt a member and didnt give us permission to baptize them even though it is something that they want to do. But for some reason we went there yesterday and he basically told us to baptize them this saturday and he doesnt have a problem now that saturday we started to think about it and changed his mind and thought it would be good for his daughters :) IT WAS AMAZING!!! when we trust in God and we act in our faith he is so wiling to bless us!! I invite all of you to try it! jump out of the airplane!!! .... well not literally... but act in your faith and God will bless you! 

haha and now the funny part! The elders here in cipo are moving pensiones and so they are staying with us for a couple days while everything gets moved in. Lets just say we have four elders living in a penison that is small and it gets interesting at times! it has been fun to get to know them better!

I love you all and i am glad to hear that all is well :) have a wonderful week everyone!
