This week was awesome. We got a lot done, and we saw amazing miracles, especially with Felipe and Carmen.They came to church again! And this time, they came to the Spanish branch. It was fast Sunday again, and the testimonies were super powerful. Then, at the very end, Felipe got up and went up to bear his testimony! He told everyone how Saturday he'd been driving to work when the car broke down. When he checked it, he saw that the radiator was missing a LOT of fluid, and he was really worried. He knew that if he didn't go to work then he'd have to work on Sunday. So, he prayed and asked Heavenly Father to help him. (As a funny side note, he also said "Joseph Smith; if you want me to go to your church, help me out! give me a hand here!" We'll work on helping him not pray to Joseph Smith soon enough!) So, after he finished, he realized that he had a couple water bottles in the back of the car, so he dumped them into the radiator, and then started driving again. When he got to work, the tank had filled up to the halfway point and when he got home it was completely full! At the end he said "And so, my purpose in being up here today is to tell you... (he paused for a while to get control of himself) I KNOW that this is the true church." It was amazing! Carmen loved it too, and she said Felipe REALLY wants to come every week, so hopefully this helps them take the steps they need to to come.
