This week was a good week! Vanessa came to church!!! Woo-hoo! We also came into contact with a couple (Jose Luis and Neri) who came with us to the First Presidency's Christmas Devotional. They told us that they didn't like it, they loved it! They are continuing to progress well, the only thing is that Neri likes to sleep in on Sundays, please pray so that she will be able to wake up and go to church! If all goes well, Lourdes will be baptized this week. She is excited and knows that it is a good step to take, little does she know (but we're helping her understand), that it is the defining decision of her life and she will have to stick with it. How wonderful it will be to be with her in the presence of God! Please keep her in your prayers!
If you were unable to see the Christmas Devotional, repent. You can access it online (LDS.org), please watch it. You should never lose the opportunity to listen to the Prophet of our God, for how blessed are we to live in a time where a man who talks with God is just a mouse click, or a channel change away (the BYU Channel). Please recognize the importance of that.
This month marks the one year anniversary of the baptism of one of my dearest friends, Olivia Bright. I hope you all take the opportunity to congratulate her, she is a very special person.
I love you all!
Elder Iver Johnson
