this week was super fast. so many things happened!
we baptized two people
Jordana and Luisa
2 people very special.
Jordana is a 12 girl that has wanted to be baptized for 7 months but her mom never let her. We taught her and convinced her mom. UNtil the mom said, "fine.... she can be baptized if she passes all her classes."
we helped her study. we prayed for her. and she barely passes her classes. Her grades werent the best but she managed to pass!!! Then we set up the baptism and everything. Then a few days before the baptism we passed by her house and found out they fought. The mom wouldnt let her be baptized! Buuuuuut miracles do happen. We managed to sweet talk the mom and Jordana was baptized this last saturday! She helped strengthen my testimony. Shes proof of a pioneer. Never lost hope. Kept fighting for what she wanted. it was very awesome. :)
Luisa is a daughter of a less active family that was sealed in the temple. We have worked very hard to bring them to church and we finally are! Luisa was baptized this weekend as well. She is very special and she will help her family be eternal :)
This week I gave a training to the members of the Priesthood and then later that day another training to the Ward Council. The first training was super good. I taught about asking inspired questions to help find out what problems are preventing families come to church. It was about home teaching. I talked about an iceberg and all that. It was super good. it helped the members understand that its not that hard. that the visits need to be done because there are lives on the line. the second training was about reception. The peple arent understanding that investigators need to be received like a brother or sister. Why do we even use that title if we dont treat them as such?
im super happy
im working my tookus off
all because i read D&C 45:2 by accident.
And again I say, hearken unto my voice, lest death shall overtake you; in an hour when ye think not the summer shall be past, and the harvest ended, and your souls not saved.
gotta work hard until the end!!! i cant take "days off" i gotta work diligently until the end!
peace and blessings!
