The Lord prepares his children for salvation

This week we had an awesome spiritual experience. Last Sunday we received a reference from the mission offices, and during the week we went to find the family without much luck, until Saturday afternoon we set an appointment for Sunday!

When the family let us in, they told us that the missionaries over 2 years ago taught them. They wanted to get baptized but couldn't because they weren't married and there were many paperwork difficulties that made it impossible at the time to get married.

Well, they kept fighting for this and a month ago they got married. However during this time they stopped attending church. The elder that taught them years ago was communicating with them over Facebook and sent us the reference to visit them. The wife is a less active member and the husband has been waiting to get baptized for over 2 years, and he accepted the baptismal date for march 25th.

I testify that the Lord is really on our side, and is always looking out for us. He also is always preparing His children to hear the restored gospel and it is important that we be His instruments to bring more of His children to salvation. I love being a missionary. There is nothing more satisfactory to me than this.

I love you all a million. Have a great week!
