Lost Sheep and Clean Sheep

Hello Everybody!!

We had an excellant week...with tons of work...We finished the transfer today and Elder Garcia are staying together for another transfer! We also ended this past week with 2 baptisms...which was really great...

A few experiences from this week.
One day we were walking around on the outskirts of Magdalena...actually on our way to Lunch...and we had 2 streets that we could take to get to lunch...and it wasnt a strong feeling but I just felt that we should take the route that we never use...one of these two streets....So not thinking much about it we just went where we felt we should...to arrive at the corner of the block...one man stopped us in his car trying to wave us down...So we came a little closer and he pulled up to the curb...and rolled down the window and looked up at us from his little baby car..and he asked Are you guys working here? or are you just visiting from Nogales? we told him that we were working in Magdalena and we was shocked and he asked if even there was a church here...we answered that there was...he was so suprised...He told us he was a member of the church and he then asked if we needed a ride...and of course we accepted haha we got in the car and started heading to the lunch again...The conversation in the car was unexpected...he told us that he was baptized in Puerto Penasco and was the son of one of the active members that i was able to meet while i was there....He has been here for 8 years and never knew that there was a church here....He then told us he has been struggling constantly for these past 8 years....He told us that he just bought a beer before he had seen us...and in the transcourse of our ride he opened up the beer and dumped it out the window...He told us that we were the sign he was waiting for...to return to church...and to repent....I felt the spirit so strong in that car...He was literally a lost sheep looking for his pastor...Before we got out of the car...He asked us with complete sincerity...Do you think that I can be forgiven for the things I have done?...We told him that he could with time and a desire...He started crying and I gave him a half hug since we were still in the car...and we got out and he left still crying.....We hope to be able to help him return to his Pastor....

On Saturday we were able to be a part of 2 baptisms ...One young man whose name is Brian...he is from a family that is menos active and every Sunday this past 6 weeks they have been coming to church and they have recommitted to living the gospel...The other baptism was Fransisco...It was so great...we had to go to Nogales because there isnt a Baptismal Font here in Magdalena...So the families of these 2 people crammed into two cars and got to Nogales...I am not sure how they all fit but there were like 15 people from Magdalena haha...I had the privilege to perform the baptism of Fransisco....After the baptism he turned and gave me a big ol hug and he told me ....I am a clean sheep....And I testify that in this instant he recieved a remission of his sins....and he was cleansed....He is so excited to be able to serve and to keep progressing in this Great Gospel....

Here are a few experiences from this week....
Thanks for your love and support...
