"Ohhhhh what a beautiful
morning oh what a beautiful day!" HAHA Seth left me one of his cards he
used on his mission and it has that on it. SETH, BY THE WAY I LIKE YOUR
CARDS A LOT. They are great tools to remember important things. Bueno
pueessss. There is good news - we baptized this week! and confirmed him!
His name is Christian and yes he is Christian. He is a way awesome man.
He hails from JERSEY. He speaks English pretty well. So we taught him
the lessons in English. It all happened so fast. There have been years
and years of missionaries working with Christian. He had a few
difficulties so he just never wanted to be baptized. He got married and
then the same day set his own baptismal date. He was a prepared man.
That in itself is a testimony that the Lord is preparing the hearts of
men. There are some good people progressing in our area. The Hernandez family
came to church. They came! We taught them the doctrine and they lived
it! I love that. I felt the spirit in the confirmation of Christian. I
finished the first set part of the ordinance and when I came to give a
blessing I didn't know what to say. Then words just started to come out
from my mouth. I love what Seth wrote me the other day saying he wished
he would have fasted more. That letter came in to my mind on Friday so I
had fasted to have the spirit during the confirmation. It was there. I
felt it. I happy that I was able to feel that and be apart of that
experience. Fasting and prayer works!
I love you guys! I hope you get to see the great new videos of Christ's birth the church has.
I love reading your letters too! I'm glad you are not
worried. Its a lot less dangerous than what everyone says. God really
does protect us when we keep our promises. We don't have His promise
outside of His guidelines.
aren't too many people writing consistently probably because I don't
write consistently. People have written and I don't get to responding the
same day so I put it off and off until I have forgotten. So I'm just
behind. What do you think I can do to be better at writing more people
during the 1 and 15 I have?
This was a good von (one)! We baptized Edwin. A youth who has family
in the church. It was a great experience! Now we are looking ahead at a
another awesome guy Christian who is practically begging to be
baptized! He is super prepared. He's gone to church for a long time but
just wasn't married. He finally got married and now he is progressing a
bunch. Its awesome to see the fruits of the labors I gave a few months
ago. Now its time to seed for the next year! Its such a blessing to see
I will be here in San Marcos for the next change! Whoop WHOOP! I'm actually happy about it. Its because I know there are
people still here for me! We made some pizza! Homemade crust and every-thang. It was way good!
was also Jose Smith This week! We had an activity were we re-enacted
parts of the Gospel! It was uncomfortable at first, but I could do it
again. Lots of people wanted pictures with Jose Smith! bahaha
