Week 59: "This truly is His work and He is speeding it up."

This week was by far the best week of my mission! It first started off with this menos activa familia. They have been inactive for a long time and their 11 year old daughter isn´t baptized. We dropped by one Sunday to invite them to church and found out that their daughter was sick. So we went in and gave her a blessing. After we left they went to the hospital and the president de la estaca works there and gave her a blessing. It turns out that she had Meningitis. But everything turned out well and the family said it was because of the blessing she had that God protected them. The whole family came to church this week. Also this week we have been working really hard with the family Betancourt...they have been inactive for awhile. But all 7 of them came to church this week. It was absolutely amazing in the church. We had 110 in church. We have almost tripled the attendance in 3 months. This truly is His work and He is speeding it up. During church Carlos and a few other investigators came to church...Carlos has a fecha for the 16 of Noviembre. He is an incredible man. But Mario...one of our recent converts got up and gave his testimony this week. It was truly powerful and it brought tears to my eyes. Also the zone is doing amazing! Three months ago we started with 241 people in church in toda la estaca. Yesterday...we had 514!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Also we had the second most baptisms out of all the zones of the mission. It is truly amazing! All of  the elderes y hermanas are working so hard, obeying, and listening! I know without a doubt this is the true church. I love you guys and I hope you have a great week!
