Every time things get super slow, we have no one to teach, and we kinda feel discouraged, we are taught a lesson. This time it was patience. So we went out looking for new people and met a bunch of bible bashers (who really have never read the bible in my opinion), Catholics, and people that just don't want religion. Determined to find people we searched for days. Finally one afternoon after a particularly unfriendly bible basher, we ran into a young woman on the street. She just happened to be out there and happy to talk to us. So we set up an appointment and she even went to church. Well last week her sister asked if we could do noche de hogar (FHE) and of course we said yes. Hermana Corleto asked what I thought we should teach and I thought that it would be best to talk about Christ of course, so we planned a lesson from 3 Nephi when Christ blesses the children. I explained to the family that in my own family we would have a lesson and sometimes play a game or something fun, so we taught the lesson and set off to play a game. Oh man it was great. All the sudden every child in the house was in the room (13 children) and we played a game similar to hot potato. Then the last round, whoever lost had to pray. We had so much fun and the family LOVED it. I am so glad that we had that experience. That is my purpose here. To help families find happiness. I don't know what is going to happen with this family, if they will join the church or not. But I do know that they will remember that night the sister missionaries came to their home and brought them all together to talk about Christ and feel love. It was a wonderful experience.
