Well! This week has been full of craziness but it has been super beautiful.The most exciting news is that Kenth got baptized last Saturday!! And it was absolutely beautiful. I have to say that we did a bunch for this baptism! Cleaned the church, made a collage of pictures and a big banner with his name, and a huge card for everyone to sign. Haha my new companion does a lot for baptisms, and since we are both perfectionists, It means we spend a lot of time making sure everything is good.
We also stayed up late Saturday night making awesome invitations for this Saturday for Mercedes. Mercedes is the younger sister of a member who is going to get baptized, and we are super excited. The invitations were also super awesome.
This week I got to go to La Victoria on divisions. It was super awesome. We contacted a million people, and then at night we ate delicious baleadas at a members house. At night there was no water in their house, so we had to bring up water in buckets from the pila #HondurasLife I also got to see my awesome friend Elder Rodriguez since he is in that area! It is great getting to see people again.This morning we also did some serious studying on how to receive personal revelation, because many of our investigators are having problems receiving personal revelation. We came up with a list of things to do to receive revelation:
We also made a huge list of blessings of baptism. It was pretty extensive. We made a banner and gave to a family so they can start preparing for their baptismal date. I have to say, there are a million blessings of baptism, and I am so grateful I get to have the blessings of baptism in my life.
Today we were in the bus, and a man came and sat down by me. He said he has just been deported from Mexico, and started telling me all his problems. I realized he had so many problems, and was sacrificing so much, but all in the wrong areas. He needed to put his priorities straight. He needed to put God first, and everything would work out. I told him that. Hopefully he will listen. It sounded like he was going to try to go back to Mexico. I realized really, if we put God first in our lives, everything else will be okay. Everything else will work out. Matthew 33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.says it all
Have a great week!!!
