This was another great week, but I can't believe I forgot to send the picture of Eduardo's baptism, so here it is, before I forget!
We are preparing for his son, Daniel's, baptism on the 30th, and his wife Eliana is becoming more receptive, and enjoys the church, and Eduardo is planning on baptizing the both of them, now that he has the priesthood. We also had several amazing new investigators this week! One of our new investigators is a woman named Dora, who contacted us because of a drug addiction she has been battling for years. She heard of one of her friends giving up a crippling habit years old, after talking to the missionaries and getting baptized, and that instantly interested her. She truly wants to change, and knows that God is the only one that can truly help her to do so. It was amazing to see someone so humbly ask for such help out of desperate need, because they know through God, all things are possible.  We also had a lesson with an older woman named Maria. She has investigated many churches over the years, but has felt that there is something missing, and has constantly looked for something to save her. When we asked her to pray to know if our message of the restoration was true, she stopped and said, ''I don't need to. I feel it's true every time you speak.'' It truly has been humbling to see people so close to God, because they understand so clearly His purpose in their life. I love helping the people here in Chile, and it is so rewarding to see people so committed to finding out for themselves. I hope all of you had great weeks too, and I'll update you all next week!
