Ramona - Week #13 - July 30, 2013

What a week! I've been out 3 months in two days... The time is going too fast. First of all, Elder M. Russell Ballard is coming to speak to all the missionaries in San Diego tomorrow!! WAHOO!! I'm super duper excited. How cool is it that he is my mission president's wife's dad? President Clayton was telling us a few weeks ago that he got a phone call from Elder Ballard, and he picked up the phone and said, "Hey dad." Haha how cool would that be to be able to call an Apostle of the Lord, "dad"?
So many awesome things are happening here in Ramona. I don't even know where to start. Missionary work is the coolest thing in the world!! You really can see the Lord's hand working in EVERY single detail of this work. I love it so much. I know I say that like every week, but it's because my love for it grows every time I see a new miracle.
Here's one miracle of the week: The other day, Hermana Hughes and I were doing some finding and we weren't having a ton of a luck. So we stopped the car, said a prayer, and immediately after we finished the prayer, we both spoke at the same time and said, "we need to go walk around that apartment complex." It was crazy! Especially because this certain apartment complex is like impossible to get into unless you live there and have the code to get in. So anyway, we started walking, trying to find some way to get in, and all of a sudden a guy drives up in a car and we asked him if he knew anyone that spoke Spanish in the complex and that would benefit from our message and right away he gave us two families, and then said, "oh and... you guys are cool and you're probably trustworthy so... here's the code."  WHAT?! Haha it was a miracle!! So awesome. We got in and met two new awesome families! They will hopefully become progressing investigators pretty soon :)
I taught the Word of Wisdom three times yesterday! And all three times we a had a member with us, and all three investigators accepted to live it... And they all had a baptismal date! That was a good day. So we will hopefully be having 6 baptisms in the next 3-4 weeks. I'm super excited for all these people, you can just see the immediate changes from the blessings of the Gospel already. The Gospel changes people! Les quiero tanto!
