Querido Familia y Amigos,
This week has been the greatest ever!! On Saturday we had the baptisms of E- and V-, and on Sunday the confirmations. These are my first baptisms in my mission, and so I was super excited and happy. They are perfectly prepared, they have strong testimonies, they know that this is the truth! And the whole family came to the baptisms! C- and A- are the daughter and husband of E-. C- has a baptism date for May, but I have never taught the husband. And A- came to church on Sunday!! The Presidente of our branch asked him when he was going to get baptized, and he said that he would eventually, but it would take him a little bit of time. We are going to start working with him so that he can get baptized and the whole family can get sealed next year!! E-´s son, M- is a recent convert as of September I think. He turned 12 last week (we shared our birthdays), and on Sunday he recieved the Aaronic Priesthood! He is un capo también. This family is seriously golden!! I just love them!
We finally found T- again. We had taught her twice the last month, but she was never there when we went back since she was in campo. And she lives about 30 minutes from anyone else, so that made it difficult to go very often. But we went yesterday and finally found her again! She remembered about her baptismal date--which was supposed to be the 7 of March also. But she knew that she couldn´t get baptized without going to church first--even though we had not explained that yet! She is super awesome and now has a fecha (baptismal date) for the end of April!! She is excited to start coming to church and Relief Society activities on Sundays. And she got her own bike now, so now she doesn´t have to depend on anyone else to get the places she wants to go! When we left a chapter in the BOM for her to read, she asked if she could read more if she finished that!! She is seriously una capa!!!
We are seeing tons of miracles here in Lobos. And Hermana H- and I are going to be working together again this new transfer!! She is a little confused since this is her first area and Presidente told her that he doesn´t leave missionaries in their first area for more than one transfer. But I am happy to be staying, and I know that we are going to see a ton more miracles working together! The work is beautiful!!
Weekly Challenge: Share a Book of Mormon with someone this week! Study and pray to know who is ready to receive one. Remember--they can´t read it if they don´t have it!
Love you all!
