Another Transfer in Deming!

Hey!

I think I forgot to remind y'all but this week is transfers so that's why I'm emailing on Tuesday. Next week we have a meeting with the Seventy that's doing a mission tour so we won't email until Tuesday next week either.

But the good news is that Hna. Ellis and I are staying together here in Deming!!! We are so happy. We get along great and always have a good time.

We had a bit of a surprise this last week....We've been teaching this couple, named Socorro and Noe. We'd taught them basically every day for a week or so, and then decided to review the Restoration and watch the video. We watched it just with Socorro because Noe was at work, and afterwards she asked us if we could watch it again the next day with Noe. Wohoo! She just loved it. We went back and watched it with both of them, and at the end Noe says, "I was baptized like that guy" (referring to when Joseph Smith Sr. gets baptized in the movie). And we were like, "Oh that's great, what church?" And he says "Your church." We were like "What!?!?" So yeah it turns out he was baptized at like age 9 or 10 in Casas Grandes and stopped going when he was like 13 or 14. We were like "Why didn't you tell us before!?" and basically he told us he felt embarrassed because he hasn't gone in so long. Socorro didn't even know! We invited her to be baptized and he said he wants to come back, and so she accepted and they came to church! We're really excited. They are doing so well - they even started praying together every night without us telling them too!

Hey so I completely was unfocused today so I'm out of time, but I promise to send a better update next week!
 
Love,
