Remember the guy (Augustine) I wrote about last week, who we talked to on the street and then came to church? It gets better. We tried to go over and teach him all this week, but couldn't because he was very busy with work. We finally talked to him on Saturday as he was leaving for Tijuana and he told he us that he was already planning on coming to church again this week. He loved it, again. We finally got to teach him yesterday, and it was incredible. We had the lesson in the church building, and he agreed to be baptized! He says he needs to quit smoking and drinking coffee first (he learned that from the Word of Wisdom lesson two weeks ago in Elder Quorum) but he is excited. He said that the day we found him on the street, he wasn't planning on leaving his house that day but for some reason he just got up and went outside, and he considers that as an answer to his prayers because he has been praying to have God tell him which of all the churches is true. Needless to say, we are more than happy to teach him and help him which his question.
