This week has been pretty great! We got invited to go play volleyball in a place called Torrejon so I have to head off soon buuut I just wanted to let you all in on how its going.
We had a great miracle and I kind of wanted to focus this week's letter on the miracle that we had.
Soo we were contacting in the street on Tuesday night and I guy on a bike stops us. Yeah he stopped US. He explains that he had seen us from across the street and felt like he needed to talk to us so he crossed the street and stopped us and says that his name is Raymond. He then says that he has a question for us. He asked us,"What is your view on the Trinity?" Oh and he was also speaking to us in english (he watches a lot of movies). The amazingly spiritual man that Elder Cahoon is asks him what his opinion was on the trinity. He tells us that he had two theories. 1. That God and Jesus Christ are strangely one person but two at the same time but also one. 2. That God is our father, Jesus Christ is His Son and the Holy Ghost is a separate being.
We begin walking with him toward our apartment explaining that we believe in his second theory. That they are three distinct beings working together as one. I'll quote Elder Calhoon from the best to years here, "He got sooo excited!" He really did though and we had a great conversation full of testimonies on our part and his. We set up another lesson to meet with him and we did. We taught him the Restoration of the Church of Jesus Christ. Towards the end he told us, "Some people would say that you two are crazy and that there is no way that God would come down to a young boy. I say that if I believe that God came down to Moses and gave him the 10 commandments, how could I NOT believe the story of Joseph Smith? It seems totally and completely possible."
The next day he came to a session of General Conference and said that he loved it and that he also loved the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. We are so blessed to have been able to find him that night and I am just grateful that I was placed in the right place at the right time to be able to find such a prepared man for the gospel.
I know that Heavenly Father is preparing the hearts of men on the earth to hear this message. Wherever they may be. I know this church is true for many reasons, but the main reason of why I know this church is true is the same way that Raymond can know of the truthfulness of this church. I have read the Book of Mormon and I have prayed to know. Heavenly Father has sent His messenger, the Holy Ghost, to touch my heart and to let me know that this is the Church of Jesus Christ upon the face of the earth. It has blessed my life unceasingly and now I have the chance to share it with those around me.
I love you all and I hope the best for each and every one of you. Read the Book of Mormon. Pray about it. Heavenly Father is there waiting to answer each of your prayers.
