March 31, 2014

Im doing great with the language, mothers day we can talk in Spanish. everything is going great here and my companions are great. One is from Hawaii and the other Utah. They are really awesome and we are all loving our missions.
I heard about that movie, It was written by an atheist so that's why its so bad. That so awesome he is going there. Maybe he will get my trainers brother for his trainer. 

  This week we had two baptisms!!  It was the Baptisms of Selena and Zuleha. But just to get this baptism to happen was so crazy. The adversary truly trying with all his might to stop it. We can into several scheduling conflicts and had to change the time and location of the baptism about 5 times and the whole program had to change as well. Several times we just did not think it was going to happen. But we prayed fervently and just kept trying with all our might. We learned we have to preserver with faith no matter how hard the trial is, and man did the blessing show. It was so beautiful to see this two girls i have come to love take that amazing step, it was powerful. The one who did the baptisms is a young man, a perspective elder. He felt the spirit so strong when he was baptizing them. He told us he wants those feelings again and he really knows he needs to serve a mission. I know the baptism had to be at that building at that time so he could baptize the two girls instead of the person who was suppose.  Because the one who was suppose to had something to do at that time. but it worked out perfectly. They were confirmed on Sunday members and i could not be happier. Also this up coming weekend tulio will be baptized. We finished up the lessons yesterday and he is ready. I have truly come to love this man and am so grateful that i was trusted to teach all this people.

Saturday morning was also incredible. but started crazy. We received a call at a call at like 10:30 with some other problems with the baptism so we had to get up fix it change stuff and ended up having to write talks so all in all we did not get to be until 1 in the morning to make sure everything went smooth. We would have usually done it during studies in the morning but that morning we had to get up at 5 am and drive an hour and a half north to go up to the U.S. Army Ranger Training facility to do a LDS Sacrament service. we were running on about 3 hours of sleep but it was an incredible experience to see this strong men take of the sacrament (Which they had not had the opportunity to do in about 8 weeks)  And to hear they testimony's and conversion stories. We also had the opportunity to give these 3 men blessings as well. I felt so honored to be able to do my part for these men that our defending our county by being able to do the sacrament for them. It was very humbling to see. They only get to eat once a day right before bed so they destroyed the left over bread we still had in the loaf.  It was so  amazing, i cant wait to go back in the next weeks and do it again.
