HAPPY HALLOWEEN (October 31, 2016)

Hello familia! Happy Halloween. It feels weird that it's transfer week this week so we've been busy preparing this last week. So It's a little different this time. Elder Crowley and I will stay tech elders but not as companions. There are so many Spanish either in the middle of training or coming in tomorrow, so I am follow up training Elder Sidwell (who has been serving in the Laguna ward for the past six weeks) and Elder Crowley is training a new missionary. We will be living in the same mansion that we have :) and will be in the same ward together. We're the first ever tech trainers haha it'll be good! 

We have this really really golden investigator that were working with. Her name is Lisette and she is the sobrina de un miembro en nuestro bario (niece of a member in our new ward) (who she also happens to live with). We've had some really touching experiences with her over the last couple weeks. One is when and how she told us she received an answer to Joseph Smith and the Book of Mormon. She said she got down to pray and felt such a feeling of tranquilidad y paz (tranquility and peace) that should couldn't stand it. Then later on in that lesson, we could tell she was feeling the spirit so strong because she just told us that she knew it was true. I just wanted to give her a hug (but I didn't) and say, "you've found it Lisette. You've found what you've been looking for. Welcome home." In our other lessons we have, she just seems to "get it." We don't often have to repeat things too much or re-explain them as I've often had to do with other investigators. We had a lesson on the plan of salvation that I think she especially loved because she had lost a child at birth about a year ago. We told her that she could see her child once again and it was cool to see that that wasn't really a foreign topic to her, but rather something of familiarity. She is also embarazada (pregnant) with about 5 months left. The spirit is really working within her and touching her heart. I'm grateful for the power the spirit brings and how it works among the children of our Heavenly Father.

All the missionaries in the Ward spoke yesterday and but we were bummed when Lisette didn't come. That's the only obstacle we have with her. We have baptismal date set for the 12th of november, but she's got to start coming to church. We are also trying hard to get her Husband in on the lessons with us, but he's a little more reluctant. Elder Crowley and his new companion will continue working hard and she will enter the waters of baptism soon!

Also we had zone Meeting. "Spirit was felt, jokes were told, memories made."

I think that's about it for this week. I hope y'all have a super-dee-duper week this week! Enjoy the butter! Much love ✌🏿️

Con Amor

Elder Joyner
