Can dogs receive the spirit?


So to explain the subject, a recent convert (she's a young woman) brought her two small dogs to church. We went over to her and were like "Why in the world did you bring your dogs to church?" She replied "So that they can receive the spirit." Great...they were even all dressed up. Then we got stuck with one of them for church and had to carry it around and take it outside for potty breaks. It was a bit difficult. We explained that dogs can't come to church...hopefully the recent convert understands.
The dog we had to hold for the three hours of church...

Anyway, it was an awesome week! We truly felt led by the Spirit to people who are ready to hear the gospel. Here are two different experiences:
1. In intercambios, Hermana Lopez and I were searching for a cholita named Olga. She had given us her address "From the last bus stop of Trufi 27, there's a bread shop and I live in the tienda (mini store) a little bit arriba from the bread shop." So we were looking for that, haha! We went to a tienda by the bread shop and met a lady named Petrona. She seems super prepared. She has had a lot of trials in her life and her son recently was in an accident that left him in a wheelchair. We are super excited to teach her and know that God led us to her tienda.
2. We took a taxi to Jardin for our other intercambio (45 minute drive) We talked with the taxi driver and he really was prepared and needed us in that moment. He had lots of problems and we are going to send the missionaries to his house (the missionaries in his area).

I love being led to Heavenly Father's prepared children. I know that He loves us and is always watching over us. Love you guys! Love,
