Hello one and all! Another week has come and gone, and I’m STILL alive here in the Valle De Chalco. Not a whole lot happening here right now, but we did see one miracle this week!
We had contacted a family about a week or two ago and they accepted a visit from us. We tried twice to pass by with them and they weren’t able to talk to us either time. I started thinking it was just another person who really didn’t want to listen to us. So we passed by for supposedly the third and final time with them. This time, they were there and willing to listen!!! We walked into their home and it smelled a little odd and you could clearly see they were very poor. It’s a family of 3 who lives there. The father Antonio, mother Ana, and the little girl Lupita. We began talking and found out that they had never accepted anyone to come over and teach them before from any religion. When we had contacted them, they didn’t know why they accepted, just that they had felt something different when we talked to them. The whole time we were there, the spirit was so strong! We invited them to baptism and, without hesitation, both of them accepted. (Lupita didn’t because she’s only 7) Then we invited them to church and they said yes! That they would not go to work that day because they needed a good place to raise their daughter. The spirit was so very strong and their faith so much better than mine. I fought tears back the whole time as I watched a family who truly has nothing, sacrifice work to go to church.
Please pray for them. And please follow their example in some way this week. That will be my invitation for this week.
This gospel is true. We all need it. And we should all WANT it, but I don’t believe that is always the case. Find a way to sacrifice this week, even if it’s for someone you don’t know.
