This week was week 11 in my training where I had to lead everything. It was scary at first and stressful because if an appointment fell through I was the one that had to figure out what we were going to do next. But I got used to it and my confidence grew.
this week we baptized Julio, Felica, and Heydi. Felica is the sister of Hna Azucena. We were talkning in a conference about the one more person that we could teach and baptize and hna cabrera and i both thought “felica”. Everytime Azucena goes to church Felica comes and she is always in the lessons with us too. so we challenged her to a baptismal date and she accepted and was baptized. it was a miracle. We also baptized and taught Heydi. Heydi is 8 and her mom is a less active member. The primary president wanted us to teach her for baptism and we did it as a service to her. We thought that she was a niña inscrito (i dont know the english equivalent. its when her parents are members) but when we went to do the páperwork sunday she wasnt in the sytem and her baptism was a convert baptism, which was super cool.
Our ward mission leader and his family are super cool. This week they have been super helpful in everything, teaching with us, driving us and investigators around in their car and helping us with our activity. His wife, yoselin has went on visits with us this week with their 9 month old baby. She carried him in the backpack thing and walked everywhere with us. She is super cool.
On wednesday we went to Reu for a satelite broadcast for all the missionaries around the world! It was really cool. We were re taught the fundamentals of Preach my Gospel and the importance of preaching repentance and baptizing converts-people that are going to be strong members for life. I learned alot. And i got to see some of the people from the CCM and Hna Acosta too.
This week everyday, Hna Cabrera and i have memorized a different scripture. Ponderizing them so to speak. The Book of Mormon is amazing. it has the answers to all questions and can really help us in our lives. When we learn scriptures and apply them to our lives we gain a stronger testimony of the truthfulness of the Book of Mormon. We grow closer to Christ.
