Hola hermanos, hermanas, amigos, y todos! This week was fantastic! So last week I talked about how Elder Guzman and I were staying together, but President switched it at the last moment, like literally that morning of transfers! So my new companion is Elder Child and he has been out for 11 months! He is 6'2", so we are back to having the twin towers! I also got the chance to talk to our President and he said that he is very close to shutting down the area of Sealy and that its up to Elder Child and I to change the culture! So this week we worked harder than I have in a long time! And we had so many blessings!
The Lord truly blessed us as we went out and did his work! We worked extremely hard at finding!!! We knocked and knocked and knocked! We didn't find anyone all week until yesterday when we taught a guy named Justin, who got out of Prison a couple years ago! He let us us in right off of the door step because the rain got really bad right then! So we taught the whole restoration with him and he loved it! He wants more peace in his life because he saw it spiral down after his brother and mom passed away. He is a stud!! The gospel will bless him in so many ways!
We also have been teaching the Castillo Family and they are solid! They invited us to eat with them and they told us how they all read the Book of Mormon and absolutely loved it, Arlette (the mom) told of how she read the first 14 chapters and loved them!! Alex Sr. also read the Book of Mormon for the first time ever and understood it so well. They told us they all know it's true and they all want to be baptized!!!😆😆 They promised to do whatever it takes to be baptized!
Then Yesterday at Church the Castillos and a part member family (The Abregos) who we have been teaching all went! It was like straight fire!!!🕯😂😂😂 It was exactly what the branch needed! We only have about 40+ people in our branch so everyone just swarmed our investigators! It was incredible! One of the members who teaches Gospel Principles was telling us that this whole week she had been super sick and it was just horrible, especially on Saturday, and then she received a blessing and had the impression that she needed to do what it took to be at church on Sunday. She knew that the Lord would bless her, and she followed the prompting! In Gospel Principles and Relief Society she was able to befriend Arlette and help her with a lot of the things she was struggling with! At the end of church she came up to us and told us the experience! It was absolutely incredible! The Lord works in such wonderful ways! I know Heavenly Father is beginning to bless the members lives here in Sealy, and He is strengthening the faith of many of His children who are not yet part of His church! What a privilege it is to be serving in such a wonderful place!
I absolutely love this work and love this area! Elder Child and I are beginning to blow it up💣! So many miracles happen when we trust in the Lord and do his work 110%! Remember never to stop the things that will bring you the most happiness!
Love, Elder Heiner
