Week 28 - Etchojoa~Elder Hernandez

So we made some sacrifices...  this week we decided to stop teaching José. Because he wasn't progressing, he wasn't reading, he wasn't praying, and hasn't received an answer yet.  But the biggest reason is that he kept putting "buts" so we left him for the future. But what I learned the week is that when we make sacrifices God will open doors.  Right after we left Josés house we went searching for a referral that we received,  and when we finally got there he was reading the Book of Mormon! It was like wow!  His name is Bolmaro.  He has 3 children, and he & his wife are very interested! They took a tour of the church and felt the spirit!  We taught him only 3 parts of the first lesson.  But it went great! He already knows so much!  We are going to challenge them to baptism this week! 

Javier didn't come to church but he will still have his date because his family came to church.  And we put a baptismal date with him this week for the 16th De Mayo! So we are getting work going.  

We also heard from a seventy  on Friday.  And he told us or spoke to us about keeping the Sabbath day holy,  and about the importance of teaching the gospel in the home.  I advice very one to watch the talks given by Russell M. Nelson,  and Dallin H. Oaks again from this past conference.  And put into use what they teach! 

Love you all,  and to all the moms have a Happy Mothers Day!  Specially to my mom,  Tonya! Love you mom!

 This is what Etchojoa looks like as they ride through their area.
You can almost feel the heat of that sun!!!!
 I love all of the random pictures my son sends. 
I'll take any picture with him in it!!!
