January 25, 2016 -- the Atonement working in the lives of these people

Hey family!! I love you! It's been another really good week.

Our investigator Jose is seriously incredible! He is progressing so so fast it's kind of crazy. He wanted to know all the commandments at once so we told him...and he dropped coffee and drinking, he had stopped using drugs after the first day meeting with us, he had had a girlfriend (we had no idea...) and after teaching the law of chastity he said he went with her the next day and left her because she wasn't a good influence! And he passed his baptismal interview yesterday and is so, so excited for Friday. We're so excited!! It's so incredible how the gospel changes lives. And he's so strong! Everyone at work and all his friends are making fun of him for going to this church, but he says he knows it's what he wants to do. It's so great.

Things are also good with Karen and Ricardo. They're going to make empanadas, and we're going to start selling them to members to help them earn money so they can get married!! It costs like 100 dollars. So yeah. Also we have no idea what we're doing in planning a wedding, like with decorations and everything...haha. Pray for us? :) Oh well. It's an adventure!  We put the date for the 13 of february for the wedding and the baptism. So it's coming fast!

I'm so grateful that I'm getting to see the Atonement working in the lives of these people. I'm so grateful for our Savior Jesus Christ, that we can change and better our lives through His sacrifice, that we don't have to be stuck in the same situations we've always been. I know that Christ lives, and that He loves us, and that He wants all of us to return to live with Him. I know that if we trust in Him, He will help us know what we need to do. I know this gospel is true, and that is changes lives.

And I love you all a whole lot! :)

Love, Hermana Moon
