Compania #4


This last week was a week full of miracles...
So basically, sunday we found out that a kid that has been coming to church forever wants to get batpzed here.  He is actually from another mission but his family goes to this ward and the sister misisonaries talked to us sunday and informed us that we need to go teach him and get him batpzied!!!  It was pretty awesome news hearing that so we are going to talk with his family and the bishop and stuff tomorrow and get everything set up.  We were also able to talk about baptism wth another family we are teaching yesterday and the 11 year old Nicolas accept to be batpzied the 29 of january!!! 
I also had a great experience this last week doing contacts.... So saturday we decided to head up to the big plaza to do some contacts because all of our appointments fell through.  We went up there and started talking with some people and some Haitians came up to us and told us that they were members and wanted to come back to church.  We talked to them for a little bit and set up an apopintment to head out to their place.  As we continued talking with the people, a man came up to us and started talking with us.  We asked how he was doing and he said very bad.  We started talking about why he was feeling bad and what we could do to help.  Trying to hold back tears he told us that he was a member of the church but hadnt gone to church in about 7 years.  We could smell a little bit of alcohol on his breath as he continued telling us that he was a missionary also a long time ago.  He started crying and said that hes afraid to come back because hes afriad that God wont forgive him for what hes done.  We were to testify of the love God has for us as His children and that he just needs to take a step of faigh and get back on the right path.  It was a very special esperience for all of us and we all felt the Sprit very strongly. 
We found a lot of great investigators this last week.  Elder Larsen and I are working very well together and its a lot of fun being with him again.  We are always laughing and having a great time working hard. 
Have a great week everybody!
Love Elder Ty Peck
