July 22 -- Great Week

This week has been great. One of our investigators who has really been struggling with the word of wisdom is finally starting to have success. She didn't drink Friday or Saturday, and she said she thinks it will continue. I'm so happy for her. She has changed a lot since the first time I saw her. She is starting to have an angelic aura about her when she is not drinking. I love seeing the gospel change people. Because she didn't drink on Saturday, we had a really wonderful lesson with her about prayer, and the spirit was very strong, and we were able to teach her about how prayer will help her to give up drinking and smoking if she will pray always and also do her part to avoid temptation.

We also had a really great lesson the other day with Tatay F. (one of the investigators who will be baptized on July 27). It was about Jesus Christ and His Atonement. It seemed like Tatay didn't really understand a lot about Jesus Christ before, but I feel like after we taught that lesson, he understood a lot more. His faith is really growing a lot.

We met a really cute lady the other day. She just asked us what religion we belong to, and we told her, and we invited her to come to church. She told us she belongs to a church in Laoag, and her pastor will be angry if she changes her religion. My companion kept persisting and giving her all these reasons why she should attend our church, and the lady kept saying, "Oh, that's a good point...that's really nice...oh yeah, that actually makes sense..." but then she kept going back to how she is scared of her pastor. We gave her a Lesson 1 pamphlet and told her to read and pray about it, and we will try to go visit her sometime. It made me smile to talk to her.
