People In Our Path

Hola mi familia y mis amigos,

On Saturday night, Elder Martinez and I were walking towards a family we wanted to visit when we starting talking with a man named Levi.  Within the first minutes he mentioned to us that he had decided to finally go to a drug rehab center to fix his life up.  He had been on drugs since he was in his early twenties and though he had tried to go to the rehab center before, he was always rejected because he never committed enough.  Thirty minutes earlier he had been sitting up on the mountain crying about his life and the path he had taken.  He decided he was fed up and wanted to change and fix everything; so he started the hour walk to the rehab center.

And that was when we ran into him.  We were right in front of a chapel when we met him so we invited him in to talk about the Atonement of Christ and how that can help him.  

Five minutes earlier we had called a local member to give a ride up the hill, so he and his wife showed up right about at the beginning of the lesson.

For 30 minutes or so we talked with him about repentance and how Christ and help him fix his life if he will exercise his faith.  Suddenly a desire to change formed into a absolutely resolution to change.  The member couple drove him the rest of the way to the rehab center and he said that as soon as he gets out and finishes the changes he wants to make that he wants to be baptized to start his life fresh.  

God simple puts people in our path.  Cool.

Love ya'll,
-Elder Colton
