May 5, 2014, Cinco de Mayo!

This past week had some crazy turns and some awesome experiences. to begin last Pday i ate some food i am allergic to, but did not know i was. So i ate allot of it, then that night i was so overloaded with allergens. The next day i was dying. We were on exchange to, so needless to say it was a SLOW day :) the next day though was better, we were able to go out and knock a few doors and talk to some people, then later that night we went to teach Joel. We went to our recent converts house "Mando" And had the lesson with Joel. Joel really liked what we were sharing and really liked feeling the spirit. He learns a little slower so we tried to break it down allot so he could understand better. Then at the end we asked if he would be baptized. He asked why is it important. So i asked Mando to share his testimony on his baptism and how his life has changed because of it. He has a very powerful experience about it and it really helped Joel understand why it is important to be baptized when we are older. so he accepted the date of the 24 of may. so we are excited for him.

Then this last Saturday we were able to get back in with Michael Bizzoto again. He used to be on date but then one day just disappeared. but we got back in with him and his dad (who is a less active) we did not go in with anything planned. We just went in and taught what he needed. We were able to get his questions out of them and help him understand. One big one was the book of Mormon. He wanted to know why it is necessary. We explained it like this "pretend one book, say the bible is one dot. how many lines can you draw though one dot? millions right? same with how you can get so many churches from one book. But say you add another dot, so you have two. How many lines can you draw that go though both dots? That's right, just 1. Same with the book of Mormon and the bible. with two books you can only get one way to understand the Gospel of Christ." it is a great way to explain the BOM to people. The whole time as well he just keep saying "I just want to know" So we challenged him to read and to pray. We have another appointment with him this week. We hope all goes well with this.

Te quiero mucho
Elder Lamb
