2015-3-16 I LOVE THE SPIRIT!!!!

An hermana in our ward that is super great :) Marielos!!

Okay...I just got on....just to get off. ...We had a meeting in Obregon so we just got back to Navojoa.
I wrote for like 5 minutes when we were waiting for the bus....but no hay tiempo ;(   but next week....hopefully.

But it was a good good good good week. We had 4 people come to church and all of them have dates of baptism...for April. I don't think I’ll be feels good to know I helped... :)
But...real quick.
2 of the 4 people are called Olivia and Heriberto, they are their 60's...I think. Anywho...they are soooo cute. They talk A TON but are super nice and are very open to listen. They have both had a TON of crazy experiences in their lives, but they are really good people. So after sacrament meeting, we asked how they felt and Heriberto told us that he felt soooooo good. So clean. He said he felt something different that makes him want to be a better person and help other people.
This, brothers and sisters, is the gospel in action!!!!! It reminded me of the scripture in
Mosiah 5:2..."And they all cried with one voice, saying: Yea, we believe all the words which thou hast spoken unto us; and also, we know of their surety and truth, because of the Spirit of the Lord Omnipotent, which has wrought a mighty change in us, or in our hearts, that we have no more disposition to do evil, but to do good continually."

Wow...I LOVE THE SPIRIT!!!! He truly does testify of truth.  He helped Heriberto and Olivia feel the truth, want to change and ''to do good continually.'' So thankful for the Holy Spirit!!!

Oh...and the Holy Ghost also testified to Socorro, our other investigator that came to church. When we first started teaching her (in her 70s) she did not understand anything. We would explain things very very very simply, and then ask her what we said...and fijate no mas...she didn't remember anything. BUT because she is super  sweet and wants to learn and has a open heart, the spirit really has worked with her. We gave her the pamphlet of lesson 3, about the gospel of Jesus Christ, and she understood everything!!! She told us about how she needs to be baptized and then confirmed in order to receive the Holy Ghost!!!! What!?!?! What investigator understands and uses words like confirmation!!?? It was a truly lovely experience.

So there is my testimony of the Holy Ghost.  I know that it is truly one of the greatest blessings
to have the gift of the Holy Ghost. It makes me want to live more worthy so I can always always always have his guidance and help and comfort and peace and love and joy and everything good. LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!! good and worthy so that you can have the spirit with you and then help others :)

Con mucho amor,  Hermana Cook

hahahahahahahaa...this is our neighbor....
We like to make her mad...because it is hilarious.
But I think she loves us even though she wants to tear us to pieces :)
