12 April 2016 La Familia Sánchez

So as you all can see in the pictures that I sent this week we had a great miracle. But I want to explain a Little more about this family. The Familia Sánchez is a family of 6. Fernando, Cecilia, Olga, Seidy, Maria Alejandra, and Julio. Fernando was a contact in a bus. My companion. Hermana Vasquez contacted him in a bus one day and he gave her his direction and number. And a few days later we were trying to find their house but we had no idea where it was and so we called them and Hermana Vasquez talked with Cecilia for a minute and then they hung up. And so we thought that they did not want anything. But we were looking for another direction in the área so we went to find the Street that they lived in. But really we were new and we had no idea where it was. And we came to a sort of crossroads. And there was a Hermana just standing there. And Hermana Vasquez walked right by the Hermana but I felt that we needed to talk to her and ask her for help finding this Street. So I started talking to her and while I was talking to her Maria Alejandra came up to Hermana Vasquez and started talking to her. Her mom had thought that maybe we were lost so she sent her to come and find us. And so long story short we found the Familia Sancez. And really we never would have found them knocking doors... never. And so we started teaching them and they just soaked up everything. Every single word. They were so prepared. And Little by Little they started Reading the Book of Mormon, saying their prayers and coming to church. All of which built up to SaturdayOn Saturday Fernando and Cecilia were married (to obey the Law of Chastity) and right after they were married the entire family was baptized. All 6 of them. And really it was so amazing to be able to watch the Gospel change and bless the lives of a family. This family is so humble. And really it was a privilege that my Heavenly Father gave me to be able to be one of the missionaries that was able to find them. Really I will be eternally grateful for the opportunity that Heavenly Father gave me to be a part of this journey with them. And everything went off without a hitch. It was such a perfect day. And we did not really think that many members were going to come of anything but we had more then 50 people that came to their wedding and baptism. The rooms were just packed. It was just such an atmosphere of love and joy. And it made me so happy to be able to have these experiences with them. They have helped to strengthen my testimony so much. And yeah... that is a short little update on what has been happening here in my life in the misión. And really I am just so so happy. Hope that you all have a great week!
Les amo mucho!!!
