Mar. 2, 2015

Hey all!

Thanks a ton for the letters this week they were awesome! Sounds like life is pretty exciting up there! First off dad bought a new truck!? super crazy, I didn't even know you were looking for one.. you were missing "White Lightning" or something? Now we can take another road trip out to Regina.. but this time at least with some AC haha. And sounds like Carter is still just ripping it up in sports thats so cool, the man! Crazy how fast the time goes by no, and that the basketball days are almost over. But I'm super excited that I will be able to watch you next year! Will be so cool. Also congrats on your talk bro I heard it was awesome.. can you send me a copy I would love to read it! Thanks so much for your testimony mom, I appreciate the strong person you are and for all you have done for me! You guys are just the best.

So this was another week of absolute miracles. The Lord is so extremely merciful, I can't even explain it. We have been so blessed. So last Sunday we saw a bunch of sweet miracles in church. Daiana went to church with her dad (it was his first time) and then Martin and Yesica went, Karina as well, and then we had 2 new investigators named Ruben and Walter who both went! So it was such a special day! 

During the week we saw some pretty special miracles with some of these people as well.
On Tuesday we had a lesson with Ruben and we taught him about the Gospel of Jesus Christ and it was super spiritual, and as we got to the part about baptism he said "I have never been baptized before, but I have been thinking it would be pretty important" wow I was seriously left in shock. We then invited him to be baptized on the 21st of March and he accepted! He feels like it could be a little fast and wants to be prepared but we promised him that the Lord will help him feel ready, wow it was incredible!

Right after that lesson we went to teach Martin and Yesica, and we had a super lesson planned out. They aren't married.. yet, that is haha. So we planned to teach a mixture of eternal families and how baptism is the gate to being able to live with God and our families again. We invited a member family with us which was super awesome, they shared their testimonies and it was super powerful! So as we talked about families they said all they desired was to live together forever, and to have peace in their lives. We then shared a scripture and invited them to be baptized and they accepted! it was super awesome! Then we explained the importance of marriage talking about the temple, and we invited them to get married as well! haha. They said they want to, but they need to think about it a bit.. so that is super exciting! We have some super awesome investigators.

Daiana is also going to get baptized TODAY!  We are super excited, its going to be tonight at about 7:30.. and we have a ward activity today at 6:30, so its going to be an awesome night! All of Daiana's family is going to be there and lots of her family that are members are going to participate in the program! I don't know if I told you that her brother is serving a mission in Peru right now, but anyways he is super excited and sent the family a letter last week. Also they have a family friend who baptized Daiana's brother who is going to baptize her today! So its gonna be sweet, Ill try to send you some pics when I get the chance!

Sorry I'm out of time we have to go fill the font! But yesterday we went to dinner with President Catron, it was super cool to be able to go there again, such a special family!

Hope you guys have a great week, love you all a ton, thanks for everything you do for me and for your great examples!

Love, Elder Hansen.
