Maria and a Sister from her Santa Clara Ward, visited the Oakland Temple's Visitor Center on December 13, 2014. At the end of the guided tour and after watching the church movie, the Sister Missionaries asked if there was any person we could think of that would be interested in hearing about our faith. And, without hesitation, I blurted out "My Tio Oscarin who lives in Mexico City". One of the Sisters, Sister Campos, asked if I had the information to complete the referral card and I commented that I did. I had it memorized since my uncle lives in my grandmother's home.
To make a long story short, Sister Campos took it upon herself to reach out to my uncle and begin teaching him the missionary lessons three times a week over the telephone until she could reach the Missionaries in Mexico City. In February, the Elders (Missionaries) began visiting my uncle and teaching him the lessons three times a week as well. And, in a few short months, my Tio Oscarin Gonzalez accepted the gospel of Jesus Christ into his life and was baptized on his birthday. What a magnificent day that was!Maria
