December 16, 2013
Well another week has come and gone and really I don't know who is taking all the time away because it is flying by. This week we have our Christmas activity and it is going to be a crazy week. This week was really crazy trying to help the zone out and get everything done. My companion and I decided that we have to wake up at 6 every day just to be able to get everything done. We had a baptism this week. It was a reference; it was super sweet. This kid (13 years old) has been going to church for a long time and he was sooo excited to get baptized. It was awesome but super stressful. We got to Saturday to arrange the room where we were going to have the baptism and as we get there we see that someone had left the tap open in the baptismal font and it had filled up with super dirty water. My companion had to go swimming to take the plug out and then we grabbed garbage cans and spent a half hour taking all the water out so we could fill it again with clean water. Then finally the moment came and it was a sweet baptism. He was super excited and hasn't quit asking when he is going to be able to pass the sacrament. Then the other day as well we celebrated one of our investigators birthdays; we had bought her a cake and went to her house to eat cake with her and her family. We were there with the family and she told us that they weren't going to go to church because she was mad about something. We left and were waiting the next day; she had her phone turned off and wouldn't answer. The next thing we know we are in church and we get a call from her daughter telling us to wait in the door because they were coming to church. It was such a tender mercy of the Lord to be able to see that and that they came to church. Yesterday we went and were teaching with a new family that we had found last week and they felt the spirit so strongly it was awesome to see the change in them and to know that they understood and knew our message was true. The Lord loves us so much!
