Capilla Abierta

I love it when all of our hard work begins to show a lot of results and allows us to better help people! 

This week was full of miracles and great blessings!  I´m very grateful to my Heavenly Father for all the guidance this week. I´m not sure where to begin because there are many great things that came to pass here in Campana.

One of the tender mercies that we received this week was after working and working we were blessed to have a great investigator decide to be baptized after a good time of difficulty to get her family and her to come to the conclusion to be baptized. We are planning her baptism this weekend. We are going to have her less active Father baptize her.
Also here in our area we have been asking referrals of every person that we talk to. And well after 25 referrals contacted, my comp saw a house that somebody earlier in the week said lived a big family there. We went to contact the house and found a family of 7! They are the greatest family in the world and have the desire to get baptized! So we are super happy and to find out that they are friends with another family in the ward. So we are looking forward to teaching them
This week we also had a Capilla Abierta (Open Chapel) which is a program of the South America south area, which we have a married couple come and bring big posters describing what is the LDS Church. We stand outside and invite people to come in and see the church. Its like a Visitors Center at the temple, we just change the place to the chapel. We even had a Christus statue. Well it all turned out great. We had several other missionaries from the zone come and help us. In the end we received 30 referrals and several investigators that came from the activity. Plus the members are super excited about missionary work.
To finish off the miracles, Sunday morning as we came into the church, we saw a youth sitting in the back of the chapel alone. I recognized him from the activity the night before..... His name is Andres and he came to the church BY HIMSELF!!!!  He loved the church so much the night before so he came to the Sunday services!!! And he told me and my comp that he heard in the activity that he needs to get baptized (Me and E. Ramirez taught Baptism) He has never been baptized and he asked if we can help him with that!!! WOW miracles are happening here in Campana!
So that is a little bit of the things that are happening here in our Area. I'm loving the mission and am very happy serving the Lord. I have a testimony of Hard work and placing everything in the hands of the Lord.
Love you all a ton, Have a nice week! Write me and let me know how you are doing!!!
