The second family the Bishop asked us to visit is Carla and her seven girls. Our first visit was on Friday, July 17, 2015. So far, we have made four visits, and have been amazed at how thrilled they are when we come. They invite friends and extended family. We've had fun watching short videos, playing pick-up sticks and making Nachos with everyone's help. The 1st week there were 12 people there; the 2nd week there were 16 people there (not counting us and the Bishop's counselor Bruno); the 3rd week had 18 people; for the 4th week, 19 people were there!
Along with the family and extended family and friends, we've taught 6 non-members. so far, our lessons have been about prayer, choosing the right, baptism, confirmation, and the sacrament. Karla's family and friends seem to be curious and seem to want to learn more about the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We'll see what happens . . .
