Monday April 16, 2012: Hermana Bowles

Hola Familia!
Another week has flown by.  Had a neat experience yesterday--Hna. Rodriguez and I were in the hall talking to someone before branch counsel when Hna. Rodriguez saw a woman enter the front gate with her baby.  We went to go talk to her and the conversation went something like this:
"Hi. Is this a church?"
"Yes.  This is the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints."
"Oh okay.....I wanted to see what it was because they gave my little girl a wheelchair.   My daughter is special and about 1-2 years ago they came to our city and gave away chairs to various kids.  I wanted to say thank you."
W.O.W.  Quite the humbling experience.  Her daughter now has seven years old and the lady said that she is now working on holding pencils and writing her name.  We took down her information for the Elders in Nueva CAja MArca and I really hope she lives close enough to Nueva that they can go and vsit her.
Knocked on a door one night this week and as we sat talking to the wife, the husband (who was "showering" in the back) eventually came out and said, "Is this picture from you guys?"   He pulled out one of those pass-along cards of the salt lake temple with the back in Italian.  A tie tack of angel moroni was pierced through the card with the name of a mission in italy.  Come to find out his brother served in Italy arounhd five years ago.  The husband was listening to the missionaries at 15 years old, but nothing really happened. His brother came to visit, saw the Book of Mormon, and asked if he could borrow it. Long story short----he served a mission in Italyand we knocked the original door of the brother this week.  We have a cita to go back this week:)
HAve a few families who have accepted baptism, but not a date.  It`s amazing how the gospel blesses people once they even start listening to it....The Gospel is true.
Love always,
Hermana Bowles
