Viva el Amor!

VIVA EL AMOR!!!! So I am really excited, today we went with our Investigator Lucia, who is always extremely willing to do what it takes to follow Christ, to get a date to be married. AND they will be married and Baptized the 20th of March!!! YIPPY!!! More good news. So we have started to work more in the part of our Area called Cerro, that has been a bit overlooked as of late and is full of wonderful people willing and waiting to receive the gospel of Jesus Christ. We had an amazing experience up there yesterday where we had the blessing to teach a sister who is hungry to know more about how she can make it back to the presence of our Heavenly Father with her family. We were sitting there awe struck listening to the testimony of this woman who is looking to come closer to Christ. First we had to ask the neighbor to turn her music down to be able to hear ourselves (which was fun). At the end of the lesson she asked us “When do ya’ll come back?” Her mother is her pastor, so this is going to be interesting, but we will see miracles as God touches their hearts and helps them to know the truthfulness and fullness of the Gospel. Meanwhile when we were teaching a neighbor girl was listening to the whole lesson watching with great big eyes and at the end of the lesson asked if we could give her one of the pamphlets for her to read. We are going to go back to visit them tomorrow- including the neighbor who we asked to turn the music down!! Three families to teach in one street!! I am so exited!! There are lots of wonderful things happening down here and we are working more and more with the ward members every week. So fun stuff that happened this week. My companion reached her 18th month mark and to honor this I wore all black and convinced a few members to join me, because when you end the mission you “die” it is a bit weird, but it was fun making Hermana Zabala laugh. We also had a Karaoke night in our ward and our investigator and a convert made a request that Hermana Zabala and I sing a song together. It didn’t turn out the best, but our “fans” were well pleased. Long story short everything is going awesome here. Tomorrow I will have a new companion, Hermana Jordan, and tonight I say bye to Hermana Zabala who is going home to be a member missionary.!!

I love you all so very very much. The best thing that ya’ll can do is help others come unto Christ and encourage others to do likewise.
love you bunches!!!
Hermana Spradlin!!
