This week we finally were able to help Raquel and Rosita get baptized!!!
A few weeks ago, we found an amazing family. We were leaving an investigator’s house when we saw Evylin passing by the house and she waved to us, and then disappeared around the corner. We didn’t think much of it as we went to our next appointment, but when we left we both decided to find out where she lived. We turned the same corner and walked straight up to the second to last house on the street and knocked. Evylin answered! We met her mom Edna and we marked to go back the following night. That night we had one of the most intensely Spirit-filled lessons I have ever had on my mission as we talked about the Restoration. Edna told us how she had been praying earlier that week to find “…a more excellent way”, and she waited patiently until we knocked on their door. We helped her realize that “… it is by faith that it hath been fulfilled.” They have been to church every Sunday since and we’re super excited for their family! They have a baptismal date for next Sunday.
Duda is working hard too to get baptized on Sunday, we’re not slowing down this transfer! Joseph Smith said (it was in the Restoration movie so I don’t know if he actually said it, but the quote is still good) “Nothing but the best for the Lord”. That has been our theme for this transfer as we strive to be more obedient and do our Heavenly Father’s will. It’s been working out okay!
I love yall!
Peace be the journey
