Week 51 - A White Christmas after all


Well this last week has been great!  I got to celebrate Christmas with several of the members here in Vilafranca and remember what Christ did for us. 
Last week we had our investigator Alberto looking to get baptized on Saturday.  We had set up a visit for Tuesday and we went and he failed the visit (wasn't there).  We called him and we could not get in contact with him at all. We called him on Christmas eve and nothing, Christmas all day, nothing.  So we had the Sister Misionaries call him from their phone and he didn't even answer them.  We had given up on a baptism this weekend until at about 11pm when the Sisters called us!  He had called back and so we called him right away!!  He had been away visiting family over by my old area Sabadell and didn't bring his phone charger....We set up a visit for the next day and prayed. 
For someone to be baptized, they first have to be interviewed by a missionary leader, in our case our District Leader.  We did a companion exchange for the 24 hours and our district leader and I taught Alberto everything else he needed to know and then the next morning did the baptismal interview.  He passed the interview so fast!  He was honestly so prepared beforehand by the Lord.  At 6 pm on Saturday Alberto was baptized by the Bishop in Vilafranca and the next day (Sunday) he recieved the Gift of the Holy Ghost and the Aaronic Priesthood.  It was definitely one of the best Christmas gifts I've ever received!!  Crazy week but it all ended in white!! 
The Lord really works miracles when we have enough faith.  I hope you all have a fantastic week! And Happy New Year!!
