Como estaaaan!? This week was fun and busy! We had a “baile” or dance for a branch activity and it was “retro” themed. SUPER fun until we had to leave after like an hour. Plus, everyone showed up like 2 hours late and stayed until like 1 in the morning, so we were already fast asleep by the time the party really got started. But we still had time to sport our hippie wear (it’s a good thing I’ve lived in Ojai my whole life) and take fun pics!
The other day we went to visit this family who is recently coming back to church, and they have a son whose 8, so we asked him if he had been baptized yet and his eyes get all big, and he’s like “NO, I HAVEN’T.” And then he runs into the kitchen and says “MOM, I FORGOT TO GET BAPTIZED!” hahaha we like died laughing, so now we are helping him prepare, and I just wish everyone we taught was like him!
Highlight of the week was when I received a letter from Vanesa and Brisa, who got baptized with me a few months back. I died laughing when Vanesa told me that her three old daughter says she misses the “yellow missionary”, meaning the blonde missionary hahhaha. But she also told me that her HUSBAND is now baptized and that they have never been happier by living the gospel. THERE IS NOTHING LIKE SEEING THE CHANGES THAT THE GOSPEL BRINGS. I have such a testimony that when we follow Christ, we are HAPPY and I love having this opportunity to help others follow HIM. I read a scripture this week that hit me SO HARD in Alma 29:13. God has called me at this time and in this moment to preach His word. And He promises me with His help and His spirit and His guidance. What a privilege!!
I love the Book of Mormon, I love Jesus Christ.
Con mucho amor,
