Eight People at Church

Hermana Williams and Hermana San Juan 

Things are going so good here in Channelview. I really am falling in love with this area more and more everyday.

Agh first, before I forget, here is my new address:
555 Normandy Apt #1311
Houston TX 77015
 You can send everything to this address I will be here for a while!

WE GOT 8 PEOPLE AT CHURCH YESTERDAY. It was the most stressful thing ever but it was worth it! haha One of our investigators, Jaime, didn't have a ride so we called around forever trying to find him one and no one could do it!! I was about ready to call one of yall and ask if you could give him a ride to church haha. But God is good and we found him a ride and he loved church, the members were all so nice to him. We found him last week outside of his apartment smoking a cig. He talked to us about all the problems he is having in his marriage right now.... Well last night we had a really good lesson with him about the Book of Mormon and he told us that before we met him his world was dark and he felt that there was no hope but now that he has found the gospel he can see a tiny ray of light. He has been reading the Book of Mormon daily and says he can feel a difference. He says he still has hate in his heart and is hurt but now he has faith that over time he can be healed.

Pearla and her family are doing SO well. Do you know about Pearla yet? We are teaching her and her three little kids. Her husband has been out of town so I haven't met him yet but we are excited to teach him too when he gets back next week! They are friends of Hermana Fernandez (a member in our ward). We eat dinner with both of the families (together) like two times a week. Ahh they are so awesome. They are so excited about the gospel and come to church every week. They want to wait to get baptized until Perla's husband gets home so he can do it with them. So exciting!

A little girl threw like a whole case of glitter on me the other day and I am still finding it everywhere! ahhh

We got to go to the temple this past week! It was such a COOL experience. After the session we had the opportunity to have an open question and answer with the temple president and his wife. We got to ask any question we had about the temple or anything. They told us that would probably be a once-in-a-lifetime experience so to take advantage of it. It was such a powerful experience. My eyes are completely opened and I for sure see the temple and the importance of it in a new light now.

Hermana Salcido!  We are reunited!

I love you all so much.  This Church is true!

Con Amor, 
Hermana San Juan

We threw water balloons at the Elders.

                              They loved it.

  1. Wow what a beautiful temple!!! It's different than any one I've seen. And the trees with pink flowers on them? Sheesh they are pretty!! And I love the fun you seem to have with the Elders. They're adorable. And they look like your bodygaurds in one of the pics. :) Congratulations on getting so many investigators to church! You hard work is certainly paying off. It's so great to think that you can help people go from darkness to light by introducing them to the gospel and inviting them to gain a testimony. That is too amazing!!
