Well this week was a really good one. Thanks to my grandparents I was able to buy a new suit and its really cool! Elder Beckey and I both got the Mexican flag put on the inside of the suit.
We are working really hard right now Elder Acosta and I. We’ve had a few things go a little rough. We have had people that don’t come to church and a few other things but despite all of those things we are seeing miracles. We are finding tons of new people to teach and we are enjoying each day.
So we found a new lady this week and we were in her house and we were teaching her. Well we were about done and she asked if we believed in ghosts so we told her yes that we believe in spirits. So then I asked her well do you believe in angles and she answered saying I only believe in what I can see and she was staring at something behind us. So I got freaked out! I put my stuff in my backpack and I was ready to bounce and then my companion asked her what she was talking about. She said I want to tell you something. I’ve never seen what I’m looking at behind you two right now. I was still freaked out and I asked her if it was good or bad. She told us good and said that she saw two people behind us dressed in white and there was such a bright light that was coming from them. She told us that she let us in her house because she has seen us in the streets and they are always with us and wanted to know what we did. So after that my fear left and it was a really cool experience!
This week we went to a house and we started to teach a Mom and her Daughter. When we were getting to know them a little better the daughter told us that she wasn’t sure if she believed in God. So we decided that we were going to share the Restoration. It went really good. We applied the lesson to them and their problems and after we told the first vision the daughter still said she wasn’t sure. In that moment I received a prompting to watch a video that I have never watched before. So I asked if they had a laptop and searched Joseph Smiths first prayer, the hymn. And the first one that popped up was LDS so I clicked on it and we watched it. It was the footage of the Restoration with the hymn playing. After we had the daughter pray and ask if the things we taught them were true. At the end she was in tears telling us that she felt that it was true and that God lives. I know that he lives, I know that the gospel has been restored. I love you all!!
Love Elder Cypers
