Week 89

Jasmine Morales was baptized!!! So she is from Mexico, her mom still lives in Mexico and they are going through a hard time.  Last night we were able to go to there house and we asked Jasmine to share her testimony of why she got baptized.  She started telling us about all the times she had felt the spirit and how she wanted to change her life.  IT was so awesome to see the gospel truly change her.  Afterwards, she said and when i was skyping with my mom tonight, it was the first conversation we had where we didn't fight... her mom, not being a member of the church said...there is something different about you, you look as though you are glowing!  And she did, she really did, and that is such a testimony to me that the gift of the holy ghost really changes those who allow themselves to be changed.  She texted us and said, Elders I am soo happy.  Thank you sooo much for teaching me these things...It was sooo awesome!!!!!!!  
Her baptism almost didn't happen,  IT snowed that morning, and we had to push it back and hour and a half so people could get there.  Never the less it was awesome!!
As well we had the most amazing experiences with Viri and Carlos this past week.. Well Wednesday, we took elder Southwick to the temple, that was amazing and Thursday we slept and went to an appointment.  As we finished the appointment we decided to drive to our next appointment we had on the plans.  As we are on the way, the spirit says turn around, you can call them... go to your next appointment... as we are on the way to the next appointment the spirit tells me, go stop by Carlos and Viri!  So we do.  She is in the middle of watching a documentary on Mormons from the history channel ironically.... We start talking and as i sit down, I sit on the book of Mormon and the bible... What!! they were out?  Were your reading them we asked?  She said yes!  Remember the crazy lesson we had with them last Sunday night.. well she was actually reading one verse from the bible and the book of Mormon a day!!  Elder Ashby promised her that if she did that she would receive an answer. That night she had a dream and in the dream, she heard a voice that told her to have more faith.  But she didn't know if it was from god, because she had had 1 other dream like that but she felt the holy ghost so strong and this time she didn't feel it... Well we talked to her and shared a couple of things, bore our testimony and it was the most spiritual lesson ever!!!!  We left and on the way to Jasmine's we are driving down the freeway...

I was in the center lane.  There were 3 lanes...  I watch this dodge viper come down off the on ramp entering the freeway.  I am driving and i told my companion, wow that is a nice car.  I'm not sure how expensive but it was pin stripped blue and white.  IT was sweet.  We drive a Nissan Altima 2016, so it was nice too... well the guy decided he wanted to race.. no i didn't race because we have a monitor that monitors our speed Its called tiwi...its the worst.  At this point we are driving about 65 mph down the freeway and as he enters on the road we are are driving parallel, side by side.  He gases it then for some reason drops back so we are neck and neck... Then he gases it again.  Out of the corner of my eye i notice something go wrong.  He loses traction and start's fishtailing!  He over corrects to the left and starts drifting the car and the car is sliding backwards on the freeway right in front of us!!!!! I am literally face to face with this car as he burns out and starts sliding, i hit the breaks and we dodge the car just in time missing him by inches and he flies into the center divider!!!!  We were literally looking face to face for half a second, smoke burning off his tires as they were melted from the friction.  I could not believe what just happened.  We pulled over, the pack of his dodge viper was crumpled in the center divider... He was shaken up but everything was ok. It was a miracle there were no cars around... The fool didn't know how to drive his own car!!!  But we were good.  Not even a scratch on our car.  Someone was watching over us!!  And something didn't like that we are helping so many people!!  The spiritual battle is unreal... 

But it gets better so Friday morning, we get a text from Viri...She says, I received my answer!!  She read a scripture in Acts and felt the spirit sooo strong... She said it was god confirming to her that her dream was true and and that it really was from god.  She told us, Elders, I want to be baptized on the 24 of December!!!  I was like nooo way are you serious!!!!!!  We've been working with them since the very beginning of my mission!!!!  It was such a miracle...  

I am so convinced that this is truly the church of Jesus Christ.  There is no way we would be able to see so many miracles and have the lord's hand in the work like it was with us this last week.  I have never been so close to the veil, but this last week i finally had a taste of how real and important the message that we share with people is.  This is the lord's only and true living church on the earth.  IT was here when Christ was, it was lost, and now it is back again.  I am so grateful to be apart of sharing the same message with people that the lord Jesus Christ himself shared.  That is the reason he came to this world, so that we can have eternal life.  I am grateful to call him my savior especially in the Christmas season when we truly remember the real meaning of Christmas.  IT is so we will have eternal life.  I am grateful eternally,  Merry Christmas
Elder Cornejo

We went to Baltimore last preparation day!! We picked up Elder Southwick and Felix threw a going away party for him!!  It was awesome!!!! I loved being there with everyone!!!  We took Elder Southwick to the airport Thursday morning.  I can't believe he's done!!
