Hola Amigos :)

Hey everyone hope you all had a great week! Everything here in Liberty is going great! Saw lots of miracles this week! Can't believe I have been here since the new year! Time really does fly by! 

So this last p-day we went to an English members home to help out the kids and the farm. The kids are so awesome. All of them have needs and the mom just left the dad to deal with them on his own. I feel really bad for the guy but he really does try his best to make his kids happy. Anyways we had a great time and had a lot of fun! 

Me and Elder Johnson where riding our bikes down the street one afternoon and we look to our right and we see big giant pit-bull running straight at us and he is ready to kill!! Me and Elder Johnson where just sitting thinking ah man we are gonna die! Then out of nowhere we see the dog run full blast into a tree head on! The thing folded up like an a accordion and the sound sounded like he just got lit up by ray Lewis or someone like that. The dog turned around and went back to his house whimpering and what not, and we where like what the heck just happened haha! 

So last night we had the opportunity to have President Rascon (the guy from the news) come on a lesson with us to go talk to la familia Garcia. This is the family that we always do service for and the dad has a total man crush on President Rascon. The reason he has a man crush is because hermano Garcia decided to go to church one Sunday about 3 years ago and at the time President Rascon was in the stake presidency and he was there at their Elders quorum meeting.  Hermano Garcia told us that Rascon came in their asked the teacher to bear his testimony and from there on Rascon taught the lesson because the guy was reading straight out of the book. Hermano Garcia told us that the lesson he taught that day was the best lesson that he has every heard. President Rascon taught with the spirit he said and it was amazing! 

Well President Rascon doesn't know anything about this story, or about the giant man crush Hermano Garcia has on him. We taught

The lesson and President goes off in a very good way! He has the 2 kids committed to a baptismal date for April 9th with the dad baptizing them, and he made a goal with them to go to the temple later this year to get sealed as a family, and he wants to be there to witness all of this!  The two of them clicked really well and me and Elder Johnson just sat there and let him do his thing!  We talked with President after the lesson and we told him about the man crush and the story he told us, and right after we told him the story he pulled over and told us that he felt so spiritually impressed to go over to the ward that day and teach the lesson and he had no idea why! President then told us that that he had received an answer to the question of why he was supposed to do that! The lesson we had with that family last night was really 3 years in the making! The lord really does work in mysterious ways! 

After last night and everything else that has happened this week, there in no doubt in my mind that this church is true and that he really is guiding and directing his people! I hope all of this makes sense haha! Love all you guys and hope you all have a great week!
