Week #81

Hola familia!

This week was incredible and I want to share a special experience that we had this week. We´re teaching Alexis and Belén Sabatini and I had told you that last week. We´re teaching them the commandments. We got there one day and they showed us the date that they chose. They´re getting married on Feb. 5, 2016! We taught them the Word of Wisdom because both of them smoke and they accepted with so much faith. We visited them the next day, and the feeling was different. Satan was definitely throwing his temptations at them. They had just recently gotten in a big fight and Belén was in the bathroom and didn´t even want to come out. Alexis was pretty upset and angry. We sat there listening to what was growing on, and we started teaching Alexis about the Anti Nephi Lehites. We talked about throwing this bad day into a hole and burrying it. We talked about the power of prayer and the Spirit that it brings into our lives. We invited him to say the closing pray. He said a pray that FILLED the room with the Spirit of the Lord. I guarantee that Belén heard it. He prayed for Belén and her well being. I was filled with the Spirit to the point that I almost cried. Anyways, we left their house with a better Spirit.

At night, we called Alexis to ask him something and he answered the phone and said that he wanted to tell us something. He said right when he left, he went to check on Belén because she wasn´t answering him. He looked through a crack and saw Belén kneeling down praying. He said that it filled him with strength. She came out of the bathroom and she asked for forgiveness and asked for help to say a prayer. She truly wanted to know that this was true. She likes hearing the lessons, but she said that there was something holding her back. They said a prayer together and asked for a sign through the scriptures to know that it was true. They finished their prayer and grabbed a Book of Mormon and randomly opened to Mosiah 5. They didn´t even read in order, they read random verses. And Belén told us that it filled her with a burning desire in her heart with the EXACT words that she needed to hear. She knew it was true. She knew that everything we had taught her was true. She doesn´t even know that much about the Book of Mormon, but one thing she does know is how to listen to the Spirit. She received her answer and she wants to follow it now.

That is why she received an answer because she wanted to FOLLOW it. What a testimony builder to me to know that if someone wants to know that the Book of Mormon is true, all you have to do is ask.

Thanks for all the love and support. I love you all and hope you all have a great week!

Love Elder Bosco II
