This week was so amazing. As you can already guess by the title, we had a baptism this last weekend. Vanessa got baptized! She´s eleven years old and just a giant bundle of joy. Her older brother, Baldo, got baptized two years ago and had the privilege of baptizing Vanessa. The whole experience was so beautiful, and the ward helped us out so much with the baptism service. Everything just went so great, and when Vanessa went up to bear her testimony, she started crying because she just felt the spirit so strongly. The next day, Baldo was also able to confirm her as an official member of the church!
It´s really just been such a satisfying and fulfilling week because we just wor so hard everyday and that moment when someone isfinally able to accept the gospel in their life makes it all worth it.
We´re hoping to see a lot more miracles in this area before I head out. It´s a special opportunity being a full time missionary, and I don´t want to lose a single minute of it.
I love you all so much and I´m grateful for your love and suspport everyday. I hope you guys are all doing great and are reading and praying everyday. We should never take the gospel for granted. Small things such as reading the book of mormon, praying with our families, and partaking of the sacrament every sunday can sometimes seems more routine than sacred, but we should never let it be like that!
