Compania #17

April 23, 2012

This week was a great one for us. 
Yesterday Manuela was able to get confirmed and had a beaming smile all day at church.  It was great to see her so happy.  We also had a great miracle this last week in finding a new investigator named Cecilia.  The zone leaders called us late tuesday night and said that they had a referral for us from the Santiago west mission.  They said that they had been teaching her for a little while and she moved into our sector.  We called her the same night and set up an appoinment with her for the next day.  We arrived to her apartment after searching forever and she welcomed us in speaking english!!!  I thought it was a joke at first but she speaks english perfectly.  We got to know her a little bit and she shared with us her experience when she found the church.  She is really receptive to the Spirit and said that one day she had the feeling to go for a walk so she did and ran into the missionaries.  She ended up getting a book of mormon from them and got some lessons from them.  Over the time that they lost contact with her she read the Book of Mormon all the way through and gained a very strong testimony of the Church.  She had attented another ward a few times and said that she really felt like it was where she needed to be.  We taught her a little bit more and we made a goal for her to get baptized the 6th of may.  She went to church yesterday and instantly made tons of friends.  She´s about 60 years old and is a painter.  She has houses all over the world and speaks many languages.  She could easily be a great leader some day in the relief society and we feel really blessed to be teaching her.
Now comes the biggest miracle of the week.  After all of our meetings sunday we were setting up some things for the baptism of Isidora this next sunday and a sister from our ward walked in the room with a big lumpy plastic bag.  She handed it to us and said enjoy and as I opened it I realized that she had bought us 6 cans of dr pepper!!!!  It was definately great to see that the ward wants to help us with the work!
Have a great week everybody!
Love Elder Ty Peck
