The Difference

Mission Tour with President and Sister Boucher and President and Sister Gonzalez

Thank you all for your love and support! You guys are seriously the best. Elder Ferreira and I are doing good. He is a great missionary and I am learning so much.

Last night we had to get home to do a report and we were going to start late so we had to get home, but we had one more Book of Mormon to give out! So my companion said, “We are going to do a game.  We have to give the Book of Mormon out before we get home" and I said “Okay, I'm down!” So we did rock, paper, scissors and I won, so I was going to give it out. We want to invite others to Christ, so and this book is so important in testifying of Christ, that we want all to read it!  We contacted a girl and was not interested, so it was his turn and he contacted someone they didn’t want anything either so we decided to make it more interesting. He said “You have to stop a car and give out the book!”  I was like “C’mon man! haha Thats crazy!” I got up the nerves and did it and unfortunately they were not interested.  So in a restaurant, I used the bathroom and when I came out we contacted a guy in the restaurant.  He too was not interested. We then found a young man on the street and he opened up and shared a bunch of personal stories and accepted us and took our Book of Mormon to read.  We felt prompted to share this last copy of the Book of Mormon that we had with us with someone before we returned home! As missionaries, we have to talk to everyone! It was fun!

The sisters passed us a golden reference!  His name is Esteban and he came to church and accepted to be baptized in December! What a miracle!   He is so humble and is already gaining his testimony of the Book of Mormon.  It is so cool to see the Spirit work with people!

Reinaldo is also doing really well. He received his answer! We asked him how he has felt and he said that he has felt this peace and happiness and ever since we found him.  He has felt so much better and his worries are going away and that he feels now that God is listening to him. He also is wanting to be baptized, but he needs to get to church! I love this work with all my heart.  It is hard, but there is nothing more rewarding than to help others come unto Christ.

I love you all!

Elder Waidmann
