This week Marie got BAPTIZED!!! Bishop Merrill was able to baptize her so that made it even better! Her husband wanted to make the baptismal service very well attended and it definitely was!!! Marie has been investigating the church for a long time and originally was meeting with the Jehovah’s Witnesses...but thankfully her husband was able to help her find the truth and get baptized!! The best part about this baptism is the baptisms that will follow. For the past 6 months or so, Marie´s husband, Romuald has been doing family history work, and this next week they are going to the temple together to do baptisms for the dead!!! I am so excited!!!!! The gospel really is about families and now we have one more family in the church. I can't wait for them to get sealed next year. My favorite part about this baptism was to see a phrase Marie and Romuald use all the time, put into action, Perseverar Hasta Al Fin!!! (Endure to the End)
Also this weekend we had Elder Quentin L. Cook come to our Stake Conference!! It was a very spiritual meeting and he focused a lot on the Family. He was also able to make time for a missionary meeting with almost our entire mission!! I got to see all of my former companions!! It was a blast!!! I really feel so spiritually charged up after those conferences!! Elder Cook is really an Apostle of the Lord. I got to shake his hand twice, once in the Missionary meeting and a second time when he came out into the congregation and shook basically everyone's hand on Sunday! The best part was to see the joy on everyone's faces as he shook their hands!!! It was such a touching experience!
This week has been so amazing and I hope you all have a fantastic week!
Cuidaos! [Take care]
