June 6 in Orizaba
Wow it was another crazy, super stressing week here. Literally everything happened this week, but God is also blessing us a ton. We had 6 investigators in church this week, and we randomly found another who was seeking more truth. On Wednesday we were walking around with NOTHING and just randomly knocked on a door and the woman who answered said: "I'm not that interested, but my husband reads the Bible a lot. He probably will be interested. If you come back in about an hour you can find him." So we left, ready to come back in an hour. About 15 mins later this older guy who looks like the Mexican version of Tommy Lee Jones with longer hair shouts "Hey, you guys were looking for me?" So we started talking to him and it turns out to be her husband. He's what we missionaries call "of gold." He really does know the Bible, and Nephi's prophecy in the Book of Mormon that one who believes the Bible "will believe in this also" came true in him. When we shared with him the experience of the first vision of Joseph Smith he said "I don't think that you are lying. I know you're not. I believe you." Then we invited him to pray and ask if it's all true and we came back the next day and he said, "I did what you asked. I felt the spirit. I know its true. I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet and that the Book of Mormon is the word of God. What else can you teach me?"
He's amazing. He is preparing to be baptized on the 3rd of July.
Anyways, thats all I have time for, talk to you all next week!
