"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."

E-mail #30 of 2011 7/25/2011 Week 66

Hola familia!

This week has been really great! We had a FHE with the E. family at Obispo Torres' house on monday evening. We had the activity where we would hid a piece of candy and they would have to find it. The rest of us acted as the spirit and we would quietly whisper if they were hot or cold. Then, if they paid attention to the "whisperings of the spirit" they would find the candy. We related that to how they can get their own testimonies about the Book of Mormon and these things as they read, pray, go to church and listen to the spirit. Then, later on in the week we met with them again. The mom isn't able to read the words in a regular Book of Mormon. So, we showed her how she can read it in larger print on We also started over with the Restoration because it's hard to catch them when they're all together. Also, the mom hasn't heard it from the beginning and we felt that it would just be best to start over. But, overall they're doing really well. We celebrated Pioneer day at a members home on saturday. Both the english and spanish wards were there and we were also allowed to invite our investigators. There were a lot of people there and quite a few investigators. And guess what... The E. went also! It was really sweet! Elder Taggart went around to different members of the spanish ward, and some from the english who can speak spanish, asking them to introduce themselves and help fellowship the E. Family. Oh, I forgot to mention that the dad wasn't there but the rest of the family was. He works most days so sometimes we don't teach him when we go to teach the family. Anyways, there were several activities and the kids looked like they were really enjoying themselves. Then, as pioneer day was ending we committed them to come to church and they said yes. The next morning we were waiting out in the foyer for them. Sacrament meeting had already started. Then, I went over to the door during the sacramental hymn to look outside and there they were walking up to the church! I excitedly whispered to Elder Taggart, "They're hear they're here!" Not only did the whole E. family come but E., the oldest, brought two of her friends! They came inside and stayed for all of the meetings. The Gospel Principles class was on eternal families and the member who taught it was sealed to his family in the Temple the day before! It was pretty awesome. They got good fellowship and seemed to enjoy themselves. After church we tried committing them for baptism because we have been told to commit them at church. They didn't say yes or no. They said they want to learn a bit more first. But, we are having another FHE with them tonight. Please continue to pray for them. They are a sweet family!

We saw U. this week and read 2 Nephi 32. She committed to go to church but she didn't show. We are going to follow up on that this week.

Oh, the sisters had a baptism this week. That went well. Then we taught the B. family. They also fed us while we were there

Bro. J. D. is doing well now. He brought his boys to church again and we are hopefully going to start teaching them the lessons this week.

We also saw Bro. S. R. He is still doing really well. This week he is going on a teamup with us!

Well, hopefully this has been long enough for y'all. These are all the highlights I can think of at the moment. Things are going really well here and we pray that things will continue like this. Tell grandma happy birthday and congrats on their anniversary of being sealed! I love y'all and hope y'all have a great week!
