Hello all!  (=

I had a really crazy experience on Saturday morning.  We went to go teach a lady named Viviana, and we read a chapter from the Book of Mormon with her and all was well, the spirit was there and everything was good.  But then in the end of the lesson she said ¨I want to share something with you guys that I haven´t shared with anyone...¨  She then went on to tell us that when she was a teenager (shes like mid 30´s now) she played with a Wijie board and talked with a demon spirit.  She said that ever since that day she felt that someone is watching her and following her always.  
As she shared this story with us I immediately felt a dark cold feeling with us there in the lesson.   It was super scary and really weird.  We then gave her a Priesthood blessing and the Spirit came back stronger than ever before and she felt it!  It was super strong and just a really heavy, good moment.  We promised her that she will be protected as she prays and reads the Book of Mormon.  The power of the adversary is real, but it is weak compared to the power of the Spirit.

This week we were super blessed to have the marriage of the Rioja Family!  They are such a special family.  They are going to be baptized on Saturday, and they are excited to go to the Temple in Cochabamba and be sealed for Time and all Eternity in Feburary of 2015!  The Gospel blesses families.  The Gospel of Jesus Christ is centered in the family, and I feel so blessed to have been able to teach and help this family taste the fruits that the gospel brings.  They are happier now than ever before, and this family really has a lot of potential to grown and strengthen the Church here Bolivia.  They are the Golden Family!

Thank you everyone for all of your prayers and support(=
I love you all! (=
