Week 52: ONE YEAR!

Villa Mercedes

Hey Family and friends! I have good news: Dario was baptized! It was so special. Ill talk about it later on today. This week was long and a lot of work. It was all focused on the star Dario because we needed to finish teaching him the lessons. The first few days of the week we didnt meet with him so we had to visit with him every day from Wednesday to the baptism to finish everything. Dario was super excited and super prepared! Im so happy right now!

Monday through wednesday we didnt do much. On monday we planned a super family home evening with 3 investigator families. I made a tres leches cake (thanks for the recipe mom) but just before, 2 of the 3 families canceled. That stressed us out but we still had a good time with the one family who came and it was good for them. On friday we had the baptismal interview for Dario, the zone leaders came to do the interview and he passed! Saturday morning Dario the man came to help us clean the baptismal font. haha what a capo. In the evening him and brayan (who baptised him) got a haircut to be looking sharp for the baptism. It was a great service. And super spiritual. There was a lot of support from the members who filled the room. He is going to be a well  taken care of member. We ended the week with his comfirmation and I gave a  talk on fasting.

The biggest thing I learned from studying that this week is that it can be a huge oppurtunity for spiritual growth if we fast appropriately with 2 things: a purpose and a prayer. I invite you all to apply these 2 things this week as fast sunday arrives and well all be edified immensely! Love you all!
