Josh's 7-5-10 e-mail

We had an amazing powerful lesson with our investigator Cristina and her husband Elio. The times before that we had lessons with them were rough. The spirit was there, but it wasn´t touching their hearts. We asked Elio to read the restoration pamphlet and afterwards we would return and talk about it. I have to admit I was a little nervous when the day of our lesson came, but we went. We sat down and Elio told us he had read the pamphlet and understood why this church was true, why he needed to be baptized in the correct form, and how that the Book of Mormon was scripture like the Bible. We looked at him, with our mouths open. The spirit was there the entire lesson, from the time he told us he had recived an answer to the other time I bore testimony that in truth this church was the true church. When they came to church Sunday Elio was ecstatic he learned about temples, the Sabbath day, and the priesthood. Afterwards he told me that he wanted to bring paper and pencil the next Sunday. It was a special and sacred time when we gave that lesson and I left edified and knowing with a surer conviction that I was in the right place and doing the Lord´s will.

During this week people have also been coming to us. Yesterday and the day before a elderly lady asked us to come in because she used to be friends with the missionaries thrity years ago. A grown man told us he wanted to come to church and promised us he would come the next Sunday. This church doesn´t just makes a difference in the lives of people, but it can make their life and give them something they have been thirsting for.
