Can Every Week Be A Miracle Week?

This week we found 11 youngsters that like to do drugs and smoke and drink and be super crazy. They beckoned us over and we were like...uhh...okay. So we started to talk to them, and they were all making fun of us and stuff at first, and then we sang a hymn. We sang ¨I am a Child of God.¨ Their faces changed, and they started to listen to us like their lives depended on it (which they do). The Spirit was able to enter and touch their hearts. They all accepted to work towards a baptism and towards changing their lives. 

There is this really awesome convert in our branch that has been a member now for 8 months. He used to live in the US, but for being like these youngsters, he had to come back to Mexico. Here, he found a few American missionaries and started to talk to them, and he changed his life. We brought him with us to visit these young kids, and we all were crying by the end of the lesson. Yesterday, four of the eleven went to church for the first time, including one that worked in another state yesterday who went out of his way to find a church building to assist. Since when did teenagers want to go to church? Only when the Lord is hastening His work.

I don´t know about you guys, but I´m getting pretty scared seeing all these amazing miracles passing. These are definitely the last days.

I love a line I found in Preach My Gospel this week about repentance. It says ¨Bringing our lives in line with God´s will through repentance is a central purpose of our lives.¨ That´s our purpose in this live. Right now, as missionaries, our purpose is to invite others to come unto Christ, but putting my life in line with God´s will is the grander purpose. It is the bigger purpose. If we can accomplish our purpose of doing always the Lord´s will, we accomplish every other purpose as well.

I hope you have a wonderful week! Enjoy the snow!

PPS Parral is famous for its mine. They had a lot of work about 30 years ago, and that is why people live here. Last Monday we went to check out the mine and the nice view of Parral from up on top!
