This week was great! We went to the temple last Wednesday and I really feel like it helped me "recharge". I love the temple! And I love it in Spanish! We started teaching a family of 6 this week! We met one of the daughters through another investigator, M. Her name is C and she said we could visit them. So we took the bus to the entrance of her neighborhood... and she lives on a mountain, like a good 45 minutes of walking uphill. It's almost like hiking the Y! But they're all so great! We feel like C might progress faster and be baptized before the rest of her family. I'm so excited for her! And she came to church on Sunday!
Also, we met two sisters this week. They're both single moms and both super funny. They've accepted a baptismal date as well and came to church! I'm so happy for them! They're super receptive and I love it!
We had a baptism on Sunday! J was baptized and I am so happy for him! During his baptism, I thought I would have this fulfilling feeling of "Look! I had a hand in this!" But honestly, I didn't feel like this was "my" baptism. It's the Lord's and J's. Missionaries aren't the ones converting and baptizing. It's the spirit and the investigators themselves that are making these changes and turning to God. I feel privileged to have a part in this missionary work and to witness someone taking upon themselves the name of our Savior.
I love this gospel and I love my Savior!
¡PARA BAUTIZAR Y RETENER! :)
PS... I'm sorry I can't send pictures this week! I forgot to bring my cable and this computer doesn't have a place to put the SD card, but next week for sure! Love you all!
