We taught a 12 year old girl last week and invited her to church, but when we
got there we didn’t see her so we thought that she didn’t go. Turns out that
when we visited her on Tuesday that she was there, just got the early, even
before we did! She loved the meetings and wanted to get baptized, so yesterday
we baptized her! It was as simple as that! Her uncle dropped her off at church,
and he is our next target to teach, but he has kind of a crazy life. Also her
parents aren´t legally married, but they will want to as they go to church so I
hope the future missionaries will be able to baptize everyone.
Also we are teaching the girlfriend of the branch president´s son. She wants to
get baptized, just is scared of offending her mom, who is catholic. I told her
about my experience with Rebecca, and maybe I’ll find some good letters Rebecca
wrote me with her testimony to show to this investigator. She could be baptized
at any moment, she already lives the commandments and knows everything. Our
first lesson with her wasn’t even a lesson, we just asked her a few questions, figured
out her situation, and read the batismal invite in Alma 7. She accepted. We
challenged her to be baptized on Sunday (we were teaching her Saturday night). She
almost accepted, but on Sunday she said she wanted more time to talk it over
with her mom. Pray for her to have the courage to make the right choice!
I’m starting to go a little crazy, I only have 7 more weeks on my mission, and I
have to baptize 7 more people to reach my goal.
I think I can do it!!! I just got to go all out and confide in the Lord that he
will put the elect in my path!!
Also for the past two years the mission has had a goal to baptize 200 people in
one month. This is my last full month on the mission so this is the one where
we will reach our goal!!!!
I love you all!
