4.18.11 -- Satelite, Hermosillo
Okay, spiritual experience. This week was tough. But we saw results. One night, we went and visited a young inactive member, who is bound to a wheelchair. He´s the only member in his family, and has probably one of the most Christ like personalities I have ever seen. We went with the Bishop of our ward to his house, and began talking about the Gospel. It wasn´t a planned appointment, and we didn´t know we would be teaching, so it was more of a discussion than a definitive lesson. But when we began to speak to him and his grandma, who isn´t a member, the atmosphere gradually began to change. We steered towards the healing power of the Atonement, and the setting of the lesson became very conducive for the Spirit. At one point in the lesson, the young wheelchair bound man touched Elder Cancino´s shoulder and asked, "Do you feel that?" We nodded. He could feel the Spirit. I could too. Almost as if could touch it if I wanted. We talked of the Atonement, and the young man´s grandma had tears in her eyes by the end of the lesson. They did not accept a baptismal date, but they did accept an invitation to church. And they came. THEY CAME! Gah, I feel good.
