Week #73 – More miracles in TJ- May 23rd, 2016

 

This week we saw some miracles!!!

We baptized two people this week! So happy that Ce*** and Ma** made the decision to enter the waters of baptism! So many blessings! In one of the districts that we have been working really hard with every companionship in the district baptized!!! Some companionship’s even had more than one. Is was so great!!! We did a fast a few weeks ago so that everyone could baptize in the district and at the time, they didn’t have ANY baptism dates. The lord answers prayers. After our fast, miracles happened and they had so many investigators move forward and everyone baptized!!! For us Ce*** got baptized which was awesome!! and then Ma**, the mom of Fa*** and Ke*** got baptized!!! That was so great!!! It was great and a super cool experience. Elder Carreto and I did a special musical number at the baptism. It was super spiritual and like half the ward came because they love us so much!!! It was so packed!!!! Our ward mission leader is a super hard worker and he has helped us SO much. He is a great example to me of how I want to be after the my mission!

ROUND 3 WITH ELDER CARRETO!!!

We’re going to be together another transfer! HAHA Elder Carreto is going to be the companion that I have the most time with. We are stoked!! He actually asked the Presidente last week if we could stay together. Crazy stuff. But everything is normal! Our zone had a lot of changes. We are going to get two new district leaders and we are pretty stoked to start fresh, have some new faces, and be able to keep working hard.

We found a great family this week that I think will be baptized in less than a month! We could be going to the temple this week as well because Fa*** is going to go to the temple to do baptisms so that should be good!!!

I’m loving the mission! Everything is flying by so fast. I can’t believe its already summer. Funny story. I felt super stressed out this week, for just everything that is going on in the zone and with the baptisms, and transfer and who knows what. But I was praying a lot to figure out what I could do, and I got the impression to buy new scriptures. It sounds ridiculous, but honestly my scriptures that I brought from home are thrashed. They look like a hurricane of colors with pen ink and TJ dirt and just a bomb had hit them, and I think it stressed me out in the morning because I couldn’t focus in my studies. Anyway I just got a new pair and honestly I could feel the power of the scriptures this week. Just being able to open them the whole room filled with peace. I could see perfectly what I needed to do, where I needed to go, and how I needed to do it. I’m so grateful for the scriptures and most importantly the Book or Mormon! I know the Book of Mormon changes lives. Whatever question we have can be answered with prayer and study from that book.

THANKS FOR EVERYTHING!

Les amo!
