So a cool spiritual experience that happened this week! We were walking around on these dirt roads and we saw a lady hammering a board into a tree with a nail! She was struggling pretty hard so we were like this is a perfect opportunity to offer service! We asked her if we could help and she was hesitant shaking our hands cause her hands were so dirty. She let us help though so i held the tree steady and my companion started hammering the nail in and all this wood flakes were falling on me. We finished it up and then started chatting with her. We asked her how here relationship was with god and she said it was good and then we asked if she´d like it to be be better and she said of course. So we told her that god loves her and cares about her and that the gospel of jesus christ blesses families. She started tearing up cause she could feel the spirit super strong and started crying. It was really cool, we talked more about the restoration and I bore my testimony and told her how the gospel has blessed my family. Super cool lady! I love feeling and having the spirit. Theres not a better feeling. We visited with her again and she is super receptive! We challenged her to be baptized and she said she would so hopefully everything goes good with her!
Anyway tons more I want to say but we gotta go now. So I love you all and here are a couple of pictures from this week! love doing backflips on the beach haha
