This past week Elder Han and I had the privilege of seeing Milagros enter the waters of baptism, be confirmed a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and receive the gift of the Holy Ghost! Milagros (which in English means Miracles) is an 18 year old girl from Lima, Peru. She came to Spain about 4 months ago, and we began teaching her at the beginning of December. She is absolutley wonderful. She reads the Book of Mormon every day, she prays, she comes to church, and she has a testimony of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ. She is so sensitive to the Spirit and really wants to follow the Lord, Jesus Christ. At one of the lessons she said, "While I was still in Peru, getting ready to come here, I felt like something would happen in Spain that would help me come closer to God. And then, you guys showed up." It has been such a blessing to see her and help her change her life and come to know and understand more about the plan that Heavenly Father has for her, and for each one of us.
The Lord knows and loves us. Thank you for helping me feel that. I love all of you so much.
