I was whipping my eyes by the end trying not to let them see the tears in my eyes it wasnt a baptism but we chagned the life of this man and i was telling my comp that i think that is something better than 20 baptisms it was so beautiful to see the joy and peace in his eyes saying that he is stopping drinking and going to church :) This church changes people its always here to help people, and we just need to share it, never lose hope and never stop praying!!! also we visited another less active yesterday and we she opened the door she just started crying she said that this had been the hardest week of her life, she doesnt have any money, she lost her job, and she is super sick, we went into her house and trying to help her, and we shared a really beautiful message and a scripture came into my mind and i thought i should share it and in the middle of her teary eyes i said hermana i just wnat to share this scripture with you its in Mosiah 24: 13-14 and i told her that this life is full of struggles but just because we have them doesnt mean God is leaving us hes always with us and will always help us :) well i dont have a lot more time to write but just know that i love you guys and that this church is perfect and this church is true and our savior Jesus Christ lives and our Father in Heaven also :) I love you guys have a great week and keep smiling :) Love Elder Tanner
