May 16, 2016 Great Week


This week went great! We ended up having another Baptism! Her name is Mariana, she is the daughter of Hortencia who got baptized three weeks ago. Its kind of a funny story. After her mom got baptized she told us that she wanted to get baptized and that the 15th of May would be enough time for her to prepare but then she didnt go to church for a couple of weeks so we just never talked to her about it, but my companion and I decided that we should check with her and see if she still wants to get baptized on the 15th.

We went to her house on Wednesday and had a good lesson but then we just said to her "Can we come by tomorrow because we still have to teach a few things before your baptism on Sunday" Then her eyes got really big and said "I am still getting baptized on Sunday?" (Technically she couldnt because she had only been to church twice but we just wanted to see her reaction) Then she sat and thought about it for a minute, and said "Sounds good, what do I have to do" haha It was a lot of fun, so we told her, and then afterwards we called President Whitehead and he gave us Permission to baptize her!!!

Thats about the coolest thing that happened this week! Mariana was really happy with her baptism and her mother way even happier. Her mom shared her testimony in the baptismal service and it was a great experience!

Thats about all that is going on here. The other families we are teaching didnt come to church yesterday but we are going to keep working with them, and see what happens.

Love you, Hope all is well!
