This week we found two great new investigators, Graciela and Vitalia! Graciela is a single mom of five kids and they are all Evangelicos.  They had tons of questions for us the first lesson but when we told them that baptisms in our church are done the same way as Christ was baptized, they all committed to following his example and preparing to be baptized the 18 of July! They still have lots of doubts but we are going to do the best we can to help them realize that our church is the only church with the fulness of the gospel!  Vitalia is awesome as well.  She is about 68 years old and super Catholic.  We taught her the Restoration of the gospel and at the end of the lesson when I asked her if she would pray to know the truth of our church, she broke down crying. She told us all about how she has 5 kids and neither them nor her husband visit her that often, so she feels very lonely.  She is in her house almost all day every day and is struggling to find peace and comfort in her life because she is so lonely.  We then were able to teach her about the Atonement and how through the mercy and grace of Christ, we can find strength and peace to not feel lonely in our lives because he is always there.  We promised her that through the gospel of Jesus Christ, we will be able to help her find what she is looking for in her life.  She thanked us a million times at the end of the lesson and told us that she wants us to definitely come back :)  I am super excited to do all I can to help Victoria and Graciela come unto Christ and learn of His beautiful gospel!  
I wish I had more time to tell you all the other things that happened this week but I will fill you all in next week!! Thank you for all the prayers and support!! love you all so much!
Hope summer is treating you all very well! :)
