Week 41: Brisa’s Baptism

San Rafael

This week Brisa got baptized! It was awesome!

on monday we had a family home evening with Javier, one of our investigators. it turned out really good. we shared a scripture about faith and taught him of the importance of reading, praying, and attending church. I think it had an impact on him!

tuesday we had our interviews with president! the last one with president goates so i made sure to ask inspired questions haha. he is a man of wisdom.

We visited juan again: He’s been doing good after his baptism, he said looking back on it he feels peace. We started teaching his mom, who we hadn’t been focusing on as much. She’s basicaly an older version of Juan in every aspect, so we are teaching her the same way. it was a good lesson. I think she felt the spirit.

Wednesday we had district meeting. we did practices and talked about investigators. that’s about it besides a lesson with family fariaz. A couple accompanied us to this lesson and we taught their family about eternal families and the temple. It was PERFECT for them. We were really trying to listen to them and to listen to the spirit and it really helped because she started crying and opened up her feelings to us and her dream she has to be able to be sealed with her faimily in the temple! This lesson helped them realize the importance of going back to church. Our prayers were answered and we left that lesson knowing Brisa is prepared for her baptism!

thursday was not a very good day so I’m not going to write too much. We tried going to an event in alvear where there were a bunch of people to pass out cards but it wasnt very effective and when we left both of our bikes tires were flat. So it took up most of the day to get back and all fixed.

friday was Brisa’s baptismal interview! she passed! and the zone leaders went on splits with us. I went with elder vega, from chile. I learned a lot. I learned to have more energy in the lessons and when I’m talking with people on the streets.

Saturday was Brisa’s baptism! It was stressful, because we were late to start filling up the baptismal font and we found baptismal clothes last minute, but once the service started it went so well and the spirit was so present! I was so happy to see her enter the waters of baptism and to see her family there!

Sunday Brisa was confirmed, and all of her family came to church, except her dad who works on sundays 😦 After in the evening I got to skype my family! I saw married michelle and my new brother in law for the first time!

Happy Mothers day Mom! I love you!

That was the week! Love you all.
