This week kind of just came and went. I don’t really know what to write about it actually.
One stand out thing for the week was that we had the confirmation of Cesar on Sunday. It was a cool experience. As I did the confirmation, the spirit was really strong. The words were coming to my mind and it was almost all about missionary work. I blessed him that he would be a good influence and would always have a strong desire to share the gospel among other things. He has been doing great and has already gone out to work with us three times since he was baptized last Sunday. He is very converted to the gospel.
Yesterday in Sunday school, the class was on temples. It focused on the blessings of having temples and what they can do for our families. As I was thinking of that, it made me realize how grateful I am to be a member of the true church and be able to attend the temple. There are so many blessings that I want others to be able to have that we have experienced in our family.
The other stand out thing in the week is that one of our investigators that was about to get baptized decided she was going to move back to Guatemala. After the day that she said she was leaving, I decided to give her a call and see if she decided to stay by any chance. She answered and explained to me that it was just going to work better to stay in Belize. I was super excited and was pretty much dancing for joy when she told me that over the phone. We went over and she said that she knows the church is true, the Joseph Smith was a prophet, and the Book of Mormon is the word of God. She received an answer to her prayer. She was baptized into another church though so she is having a little trouble seeing why she needs to do it again, but we have been working on explaining to her a little more about how the truth and the authority is only found in the LDS church. We have shared just about every scripture that someone can share about baptism, so its just up to her to make that decision now. She is very prepared though.
Well I hope you all had a great week! I sure did! Love you!
