What a great week! First, Eduardo was baptized! It was a great baptismal service and his girlfriend was crying the whole time. I was able to baptize him and while we were changing clothes he kept saying, Im so happy. It was so so so so good. The bishop here already planned his interview to receive the priesthood next week. We had lunch with Eduardo and his family after the baptism and it looked like he was shining. This is what its all about. He changed his life and now he is so happy. This week he asked us why God made him wait so long to hear the gospel. He said that he would have liked to serve a mission. But we talked to him about it and told him that it was his time right now and that he can still serve a mission by telling his friends and family about the gospel and then teaching them with us. He is such a great man.
This week we had an incredible lesson with a new investigator. Her name is Klisie and we contacted her last week. Well, she lives alone so we took a less-active member to teach her with us. The lesson was amazing and she had tears in her eyes when we said the first vision. But the best part was that she told us that she usually doesnt give her name or address to people. She almost always lies about it. But she said that when she talked to us, she felt so peaceful that she couldnt lie. She said that it was the first time that she has felt like that in her life. We marked a baptismal date with her and she accepted very quickly. She really wants to follow Christ and she even said that she has a cousin who is a member in the USA!
Well, Annie, youre gettin big. It makes me so sad. But I hope you have the best birthday ever. We are going to make cake today because a sister in our zone will have her birthday tomorrow. But secretly I am making this cake for you....I love you so much Annie. Dont you dare forget about me.
I love you all so much. Scott, sorry the mullet has to come off. But it will rest in peace. Just remember that in the ressurection not a hair on our head will be lost. It will come back!
Dad, good luck with the new calling. You will be great. Tell all of the young men that I love them and that they need to prepare to serve missions. The lord needs them out here!
I love you so much and I know that this is the work of the lord. Theres nothing better than bearing your testimony about the truth of this gospel. I love it.
Love, Elder Big T.
Batiiiiiiiiismo! Eduardo's baptism
