Hello Friends and Family!
Good news is that we had a baptism this week!!! J... F... was baptized on Saturday and it was such a special experience. He is an escogido for sure! The sisters found him knocking doors and now he is a baptized member of the church. His testimony is based on the Book of Mormon and he knows that it is true which helped him feel that everything else we were teaching him was too. He is really shy and timid but Hermana Suarez and I both feel that he is going to grow so much in the gospel and be a great blessing to this ward and a great example to the members for his complete obedience. He is exactly obedient and wants to do everything right. He even "confessed" to the district leader in his interview that he liked to play chess and guitar and asked if he could still keep doing that or not. Haha, he is so pure and so ready to give his life to the Lord.
This week was crazy with lots of meetings and also giving 2 trainings. We are the sister leaders of 4 zones so we do a lot of traveling and trainings. Next week we will be giving 4 more big trainings, one of them in a multi-zone conference we have with President....yikes!! But it will be a good experience. Please pray for us! The Lord is teaching me so much with this responsibility and even though it stretches me, I am so grateful because I know it´s making me better.
Please pray for little M... (10 years old) who will be baptized this week or next, P... and M... who also have a baptismal date, R..., E..., J..., and C... who we are working with to accept baptism, and J... our new recent convert. I love the people here and will try and tell more about them soon.
I love you all so much and hope you have a great week. I know the Lord is so aware of each one of us and loves us individually. We are blessed by him every single day, we only have to look and we will surely find his hand. I am so grateful to be a missionary.
Missionary challenge this week, find someone who is not a member of the church and share a small message about some blessings you have received from living the gospel. It may seem small, but it´s the little things that bring about the great miracles. Pray to find the one.
I love you all! Have a great week!
