Chile - Pucòn - Week 23 - Feliz dia de la Madre..

Happy mothers day to all you great mothers out there !!!
This week was great! We had a lot more success as far as lessons go, which is great! My favorite part of the week was a lesson that we had yesterday afternoon!  
   A few weeks ago my companion and I were in a taxi on the way home for the night and we were sitting in the back next to an older woman. We started talking to her, asking how her day was. She was really nice, so we decided to give her a little family search card. We talked to her about the Family search website and she said she loved doing family search and that she would look into it! We asked her if we could pass by one day and share more with her! She said she would love to have us over and told us to come by the next Sunday! Lovely!
  The next Sunday we tried to find her house. We knocked on the door that we thought was hers, but no one answered. We decided to wait and pass by the next week. The next Sunday we called her to see if she would be home that day. She said yes and said that she thought we had abandoned her because we couldn't find her the last week! 
   We passed by her house and got to know her a little bit and found out that she had shared with missionaries in Santiago over 25 years ago! She said she had a good experience with the Elders and that they even gave her a Book of Mormon, which she still has along with some pamphlets that they left! She told us that after some time the missionaries just stopped passing by and she doesn´t know why. After that, she never talked to any other missionaries. Until now! 
   Yesterday we passed by again and taught her the first lesson about the Restoration and she understood it PERFECTLY! She explained everything back to us, it was awesome! In the end we invited her to be baptized and she accepted! She said she would like to be baptized, but that she wants to talk with God about it first to see what he wants her to do! Ha, Perfect! My companion and I walked out of that lesson on clouds! It was so great!! This experience also gave me hope that even though not everyone I teach here will accept the gospel from me, that one day the seed I plant in them will grow! The seed in this woman was planted 25 years ago by a couple of Elders that probably never thought that what they shared with this woman would have an impact on her years later, and they will probably never know, but how cool that I have the opportunity to pick up where they left off! Hope it works out!
