So Many Miracles

Hey family. What a great week it has been. So many miracles the Lord has blessed us with. We have had the most successful week since I have been in this area.
I will start off with telling you how amazing Abraham has progressed. We met up with him and took him down to the church to have a lesson twice this week. It was super powerful and spiritual. The first lesson we had was when we recommitted him to be baptized on Christmas eve. That was such a cool experience because he really does want to follow Christ. So what better way than to fully commit to him and be baptized in celebration of him. He was really emotional about it all. Shoot, I was too. The spirit was really strong there. Then we met with him again and taught him more about prophets and the restoration. Elder Blake and I both gave him a tie, the first 2 he has ever owned. And then we taught him how to tie it. It was such an amazing time with him. We have all really come to be good friends. He has already talked about visiting us when we are done with our missions. He is super funny.
Then there is Cindy. Holy cow. Cindy is awesome!  We had a GREAT lesson with her on Friday. She is so ready to accept the gospel. If I could say there was such thing as a perfect lesson, that would have been it. She is just so prepared. For example, we were teaching her about the Great apostasy and she was understanding it 100%. After Elder Blake taught about that principle, she asked the questions "so who did God send to bring back the church?!?!" i just looked at her in awe and said "well let me tell you!" She is getting prepared to be baptized on the 26 of November. After we were talking about baptism, she was already wondering what she was going to wear to her baptism. It was really funny but it just shows how excited and ready she is to accept the gospel. Near the end of the lesson, she was telling us how she has been waiting for this for 3 years. She and her husband are getting a divorce and she wasn't in a position to join the church. But now she is ready. She was telling us there has just always been something that was drawing her into the church and that she feels she has already gotten an answer to know it is true. Cindy is incredible and is just such an amazing person. She has 2 twin girls that just turned 7 and then a 15 month old boy. The gospel is going to help this family so much. I'm so grateful my Heavenly Father has allowed me to be here and help her along her path of joining the church.
Besides those things, everything is just going wonderful. I'm feeling good, the holiday season has arrived and the Church is TRUE! What more could you ask for?!?!
I love you all so much!
Elder Pierce
