11/10/14 November 10th Elder Gurr

Hello Family,
This week has gone by fast again. I feel like I just talked to you guys yesterday.  Well, on Tuesday we found this guy who let us in saying to us that we can't talk about the Book of Mormon but things from the Bible we could talk about.  So we went crazy teaching him that there are more scriptures then the Bible and that we believed it and the Book of Mormon.
We quoted from the bible, Ezekiel 37:15–17,

15 ¶The word of the Lord came again unto me, saying,

 16 Moreover, thou son of man, take thee one stickand write upon it, For Judah, and for the  children of Israel his companions:then take another stickand write upon it, For Joseph
the stick ofEphraim, and for all the house of Israel his companions:

 17 And join them one to another into one stick; and they shallbecome one in thine hand.

As you can see the scriptures testify of another book besides the bible.  Also, The Bible is compiled of many books.  He was a preacher and he could not explain it.  He just can't believe in more than the Bible but we gave him a book and told him to pray.  He needs to open his heart.

Then I went with Elder Santos, the one that has been having medical issues, and he is getting better and now he is working again.  He rested for 10 days and his face is getting better.  Everything though is good.  Then I went with another Elder in another exchange and it was crazy. We taught a bunch of people.  Then it was sad because one of our families we found last week,  the father died.  It was sad and these people need God more than anything. It's crazy how life is short but we told them that you will be able to see him again.  Then on Sunday we had a miracle happen.  We had an investigator come that we didn’t expect and they are doing really well.  Then we had 3 new people come to church.   We talked to them and they want to be baptized.  They also attended a baptism for the family John-Reyes.  The father is American and the mom is from Honduras.  It was awesome and we will see what we can do to help them reach their goal of baptism.
Well that's my week. Love you all! Bye
Elder Gurr
