Week 64 ~ Ciudad Obregon ~ Elder Yoo

So This week was FULL OF Miracles!! This week was awesome! so to start off telling you all about this huge miracle that happened, it all started with the past weeks, we have been trying to help Elizabeth get baptized, but week after week we couldn't baptize her because she was living with a man that wasn't her husband. And we told her to talk to him about her desires of getting baptized, but week after week he wouldn't leave!! So we were getting frustrated because we weren't seeing any progress or results so we were getting a little doubtful that we were going to be able to see her get baptized, since this coming Monday is transfers and we wanted to make sure that both of us get to see her in the waters of baptism. Then our zone leaders told us that we should do a fast with her. So that's exactly what we did! We fasted with her so that she would be able to be baptized on Sunday!  So we did it and we went to see what has happened so far on Wednesday and nothing had changed, so we decided to talk to him about it, so we did and he told us that he had a change of heart and that he understood that he had to go, so he told us that he was going to leave the next day. And that he was going to go that day to get the permission to drive a car without plates on the road. Elizabeth told us that they never give the permission if they don't have a license (which he doesn't have) so we got a little worried. But we returned the next day and Elizabeth came and told us that he was leaving & that he got the permission to drive on the streets with out plates (that's a miracle)!! It was so crazy!! So he slowly started moving out. We planned everything and her interview to be baptized was on Saturday. so when we passed by on Saturday to practice the questions with her, HE WAS STILL THERE!!! We were like "Hermana, if he doesn't leave then you cant' be baptized or interviewed! he has to be gone before your interview!!!" We told her to call us when he left! She then called us 2 hours before her interview!! She passed her interview and asked ME if I could baptize her! She was baptized on Sunday! I gave a talk and shared this huge miracle with everyone and told them that Fasting is something very special and powerful! That Heavenly Father just wants to hear from us and see our strong desire and ask for his help. 

I know that Fasting is something commanded by God so that we as his children can become better and overcome the Natural man! Because like it says, "the natural man is a enemy of God", and I can Bare my testimony to all of you that God listens to our petitions and knows our needs but sometimes he just wants to see us work, sacrifice or even serve somebody to receive the blessing so that we learn something also! I know that he prepares the way so that we can complete all the commandments or challenges that we have! I know that he loves us! And I KNOW that he knows us individually and wants the best for us. Whatever is important to us, is important to him as well. I love being a missionary and love seeing first hand these miracles. 
I love you all,

Elder Horlacher
