This week we had a really good lesson with the Polanco family. It seems like every transfer we find somebody who is just going through an extremely hard problem. The sister told us that her daughter was studying in a city really far away from Santa Cruz and was studying music. She told us that this one boy did something really bad to her. She told us this boy raped her daughter and now she was pregnant. It was an extremely hard lesson for us to think of way we could help this woman with this problem. We felt like everything we said wouldnt be enough to help her. But as I was thinking of things we could share, a really good thought came to my head. I shared with her John 3:16. That God sent his Son to the earth, a place really far away from His home. There Christ was doing everything perfect but the people chose to beat Him, spit on Him, and in the end kill Him. Its the same thing that was happening with her and her daughter. That she was really far away from her and that this other person chose to do something really bad to her daughter. We taught her that God knows exactly what she was going through because he went through something like that. It was a really good lesson and I was so thankful for the chance that my comp and I had to help her. With that lesson we had we were able to help her have more intrest in learning about the gospel and going to church. She told us that just being there helped her out so much. It was a really good lesson. We are going to go back on Wednesday to see how she is doing.
We are also trying really hard to help some recent converts in our area, the Sangary family. We are trying so hard to get Eduardo Sangary, the father, so stop drinking. We have seen some progress with him but we are trying really hard to help.
Thats about all this week. We are going to keep looking really hard for new investigatores.
