"Ammon said unto him: I am a man; and man in the beginning was created after the image of God, and I am called by his Holy Spirit to teach these things unto this people, that they may be brought to a knowledge of that which is just and true; And a portion of that Spirit dwelleth in me, which giveth me knowledge and also power according to my faith and desires which are in God."

The Most Peaceful He'd Felt in a Long Time

Hola familia!
Well, things are going well here. Oh, our new investigator M. She is doing well. Oh, so my second Sunday here the ward seemed concerned with her getting baptized because she is having a baby out of wed lock. So, we tried telling them that we had already taught her the law of chastity and that she understands that what she did was wrong and she committed to
live the law of chastity. I'm not exactly sure why they were concerned so much about it. We didn't see the problem they did so we left President Griffin a message about it that day. Then, I believe it was on wed our ward mission leader told us that the stake said that we can't teach
her. It was pretty crazy for a while. Then, President Griffin called us and we told him about the ward's concern and that they told us not to teach her. In the end he told us that she can be baptized and so we are still teaching her . So, she is doing well and she is on track for her baptism on Saturday! Then, yesterday we taught the brother of a member in the Spanish ward. Claudio, the investigator, went to church yesterday and was saying that it was the most peaceful he'd felt in a long time. We had a really good lesson with him on the Doctrine of Christ. In the lesson he accepted a soft baptismal commitment. At the end of the lesson he offered the prayer. We were hoping for a moment of silence after the prayer but then his bro was like alright well thanks for coming over! Haha aw man. I bet he is the next one that we commit for a date. I'll let y'all know how it goes with him next time. We also have a few others but we aren't sure how legit they are right now. So, I'll let you know about them next time if they are legit or not. But, I need to get going so I can email President Griffin now. Just know that everything is great and I love y'all!!!
