We are so excited for the Leon family, the ones that came to church last week. On Tuesday, our Ward Mission Leader and his wife drove us all the way out to Decatur to teach them a lesson. We taught them the first lesson and they loved it. They asked us questions like, "Where should we start reading in the scriptures?" and "Will I be ready to be baptized? They are so amazing. It is such a miracle that we were able to find them, or rather, that they found us! :D They committed to be baptized on March 9.
We taught Claudia on Wednesday, and she is so cute! She has been reading and praying. Now, all she needs to do is to pray about the Book of Mormon. She is getting close to getting an answer. :)
We also taught Florencia on Wednesday. She is the cutest old lady! She doesn't understand when she reads very well, so we read with her. We started with 1 Nephi 1. We read verses 1-6, and asked her what she understood from it, and she didn't understand any of it, and asked if we could read it again. So, we did. We took it very slowly, and bit by bit, she may have understood a bit.
We walked about 6 miles on Thursday. Our mission president has asked us to spend one day a week without our car, so Thursday was our no car day. And we ended up at Vanessa's house, with no way to get home, besides walking, so that is what we did. We did make it home on time, though. ;)
I have loved the time I have spent here in Denton. I have met a lot of amazing people, and I have learned a lot. It has been a very good area. I am very pleased to be leaving the area in much better condition than I found it in. We arrived, and the area had not been updated in 3 months. We have kept the area book very well updated, and we have found many more people to teach. We are teaching good people, and helping to build up Zion here. It has been a pleasure to serve here.
I am also very excited to be going to Stephenville. This is going to be amazing!
