Week 9 in South America


It has been a good week 9 in Guyana Français. We saw some miracles. As you might remember a few weeks back I wrote about a less active family that we had been looking for for a long time that we finally found. We have been visiting them every week but they have not put any effort forward to coming back to church. Last Sunday during testimony meeting a member (he is a recent convert, he was baptized at the end of August) got up and bore his testimony and we thought how he could help the father of this less active family. We took him to our lesson with the family this week and it was amazing. It turns out the dad and the member used to work together a long time ago. They talked about their conversion stories and by the end everyone was crying. That member was exactly what this family needs. It was an amazing experience. We are going to keep bringing him with us to our lessons with this family.

Another miracle this week was our investigators Marianela and her son, Eusery, finally came to church because one of the members was able to pick them up. It's really hard for them to come because they don't have a car and she has triplets who are only six months old which is a lot of work to take them all out. They are the cutest! They came to church and loved it. They made friends with the members and another family offered to take them to church next week. Our branch here is the best, I love them with all my heart.

So much has happened this last week that I can't write it all. I'm so happy to be down here. I know that our Heavenly Father is watching over us and is guiding us as we do his work. He loves us and wants nothing more than he wants us to return to him. I love it down here and I love all you back home as well. Keep reading the Book of Mormon every day, its the best thing to do!!

Lots of love,

Soeur Banks
