Elder Rose!

Transfers came and I got a new companion! ELDER ROSE!! :D Elder Rose is the greatest! He came from the Dunn area, which was actually in about the same situation that we are in here in Henderson where we are just beginning the work here in Spanish. It was his first area and now I get to be his companion! I'm super excited to help him out with Spanish and to show him the ropes here in Henderson!

With the transition of companions the work was a little bit slow the last week, but we definitely saw some miracles. First of all we had an amazing lesson with Nancy! We've been teaching her for so long, and when we went over last time we had brother Lopez with us finally! And the first thing that she really told us when we asked her how she felt the last week, was peace! She finally was able to get through all the confusion and feel peace! And she believes that it's true! She wasn't able to come to church this week, but her schedule should have changed to be able to come now! Another thing that was great for her was that she was able to get back into school, which she has been praying for. I love the Lord! He doesn't give up on people!

We have had some other really great lessons as well with our investigators, less actives, and recent converts. The Lord truly is working in their lives at the pace that they are ready and able to handle.
So keep praying for Marisol, Tomás, and René. They are at such crucial points in their progress where a decision comes down to them.

This week at church we had an awesome experience! We translated sacrament, and then had the other two classes all in Spanish! Woah! I miss doing church in Spanish! Antonio Garcia, the member who just got here from Mexico, is going to be so huge here in Henderson!
The sad part was that we had no investigators. But the great thing was that we had enough members to do it in Spanish! :D

This week I had some great studies about Isaiah. Chapter 25 in 2nd Nephi is one of the greatest! Nephi knew the prophecies of Christ so well because he lived in Jerusalem, and he prophesied so boldly about him!

I love yall so much! Have a great week, and be bold disciples of Christ!
