Hola! This week was SWEET! Its kind of weird though because our numbers of lessons were so great, but I feel really accomplished because of all of the miracles we are seeing. Each day at church now the members are amazed to see how many people are in our Gospel Principles class. We had to switch rooms! Tons of less actives are coming back AND STAYING which is the best part.
Anyways, so ya Rocio´s baptism was AWESOME. The same day of
her baptismal interview a less active member scared us half to death
because she said that she saw Rocio smoking in the park a couple days
before. I was like, "There;s no way!" So we explained to the zone leaders
what we heard and told them to make sure that she is 100 percent ready
to make that sacred covenant with God. During the interview I was so
worried, but she came out clean! Hip hip hooray! We got to the church
early to fill the baptismal font and we found Rocio there with the
Relief Society making tamales for after the baptism haha. We crammed as
many members as we could into the little room and had a real spiritual
service. I got to share my testimony, the messages were perfect, and the
young women sang a special number for her. Then afterwards she shared
her own testimony and you could see and feel how much at peace she was.
She keeps on saying that it doesn't even feel like she walks because it's
like she's floating across the floor haha. The funny thing is that we
just found another investigator just as prepared as Rocio to receive the
Gospel who was there at the baptism for his first time at church. Next
one up! Ha I love doing the Lord's work.
|Hopefully the last ingrown toenail of my mission.|
SUPER SHOUT OUT to my mom! She was smart and sent me a package with a missionary that was heading to Cancun! AND it had my birthday package with it from Sister Sarah Henretty! Thank you so much everyone for all the awesome cards and treats. I loved it!
Have a good week fellow workers in Zion! I love you all!
