Hey family & friends! So real quick, I love you all and want to tell you about this miracle we saw this week. We were finding on Sunday night when we were led to an apt complex that we had not planned on going too. We have tracted that place inside and out a bunch, but we saw a young Hispanic family just about to go into their apt when we contacted them. They were not interested, but we asked what their names were and the man's name was Eduardo Moroni Olivo...haha so we jumped on his middle name being Moroni (a prophet in the Book of Mormon) and he told us that his grandmother gave him that name and that he was baptized into the Church when he was 8, but then stopped going to Church when he was 15 because of the death of his grandparents.  He was deeply wounded that Heavenly Father took away is grandparents when he was so young and that his father dad when he was only 2 months old in the first place (all of this was in Mexico City). Well we knew that the Spirit of God had led us to them so with a lot of love we were able to set up a time to teach them. So last night, we taught them the Plan of Salvation and the love of Heavenly Father was felt very strong!!! We helped answer their questions as we taught about the Atonement and why their is so much suffering in the world! It was one the most powerful teaching experiences I have ever experienced as the Spirit totally took control of the lesson. We "understood one another, both of us were edified and we rejoiced together" (DC 50:22)

 We ended by inviting them, as always, to pray and to ponder about the things that had heard and felt as we taught. They are hung up on praying to el angel del muerte or the angel of death...weird I know, but we left them with our testimonies and a sure knowledge that salvation can only come in and through Jesus Christ. He is the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. It is so important to understand that our Heavenly Father has a plan for our success and happiness in this life. The plan is made possible due to Jesus Christ and His atonement. Our happiness depends on if we choose to follow Jesus Christ and use His atonement. I promise that is the only way to find "peace in this life and eternal life in the world to come." I love you all and invite you all to pray to your Father in Heaven, in Christ's name. It is something we can do anywhere, at anytime to feel His love for us :) -Elder McGinn
