Excerpts from Elder Ames emails

So I only have a few minutes, so I want to share a quick experience with you all. It is about how the Lord prepares and gives us people to teach. On sunday after church, on of the members came up to us and was so excited. He was just about to burst at the seams. He asked us if we had a few minutes to talk with him. So he told us a story about his friend whom he had known since childhood, who was not a member of the church. The member had taken a last minute trip down to Florida to bring his friend up to new york. In Florida they had some incredible spiritual experiences. Being able to go out with the missionaries and go to the temple. They said that the experiences in Florida were incredible. So now he is living with this member and wants to learn more about the gospel. It turns out that he had lived in japan last year and was taught by the missionaries. But they didn't speak Spanish. So they taught him by way of a translator. So he has been taught and has a basic understanding. But most importantly, he has the desire to learn and to be baptized. And he lives with one of the most solid members of the ward. It is going to be an incredible experience teaching him. Keep him in your prayers! His name is Daniel. Well my time is spent and its time to go meet my new companion. Wish me luck!!

Con Amor
