Hi Family and Friends,
How is everyone doing? Well for me I am doing great here in Phoenix, AZ teaching the Gospel and helping other Come unto Christ. The weather was nice this week it cooled down from last week (in the mid 90's). This week was an awesome week full of great spiritual experiences. We got 7 new investigator's this week. We finally met with the Thompson family of 7. They met with the missionaries before but kept moving around and lost contact with them. They are a very nice family with 3 daughters and 2 sons. They loved how the church is family oriented and how they can be a family forever. We were so happy to have met with them on Wednesday and teach them about the Gospel. It was so great when they told us they wanted to take the lessons and become members of the church. We explained to them about what we teach and how we help them prepare for baptism and confirmation to receive the Holy Ghost. It feels so wonderful teaching a family how the Gospel can bless their lives. We also had a great lesson with another new investigators, Peter and his two sons Atum and Moses. We taught them about prophets and how God called Prophets through out time until Jesus Christ came to earth. Sandy Santana is getting baptized this Saturday. We are so excited for her and she cannot wait to be baptized and confirmed a member of the church and receive the Holy Ghost. On Wednesday, I was on splits with a ward missionary and I taught her the gospel of Jesus Christ and how through the Atonement we can return to live with our Heavenly Father as we have Faith in Jesus Christ, Repent of our sins, be Baptized to receive a remission of our sins, receive the Holy Ghost as our companion to help us, and endure to the end. It went really well as she was crying at the end of the lesson and I told her that is the spirit testifying to you that the Gospel is true and our Heavenly Father loves us. Then on Thursday, we went over her baptism interview questions and she did not think she was ready to get baptized but as we went through the questions she knew them and had a awesome testimony about the Gospel. On Saturday, we had a great ward picnic at the church full of delicious food and great games for the kids. We had a great turnout of about 70 people. Recent converts Shelly, Robie and our investigator Sandy had a fun time. Sunday was a great Sabbath day, our sacrament speakers were a new couple in our ward. They talked about the Plan of Salvation and how the Atonement of Jesus Christ is central to our Heavenly Father's plan. Then on Sunday night we had a great lesson with Laredda on how the Gospel was restored through Joseph Smith and how we can know for ourselves by reading the Book of Mormon and praying to God to know the truth. We invited her to be baptized and she accepted to be baptized on May 19. We were so excited the spirit is amazing. Gotta go. Love you all! Take care. My prayers are with you all.
Love, Elder Lance Kuhi Cabral
