We had another baptism today! Our investigator,
Sabina, got baptised. She's the mother of a member in the ward, but
she's always been againt religion before. She's had a ton of problems
and bad expiriences before and didn't want to get involved at first. But
when she prayed and asked God if it was true, she got her answer and
everything changed. We had to help her out a lot though, because she
can't read or write. So we were always reading from the Book of Mormon
to help her gain a personal testimony. She really found everything
through prayer. She really has a ton of faith, and even though her other
daughters were telling her not to get baptised, she told them that she
made up her mind. She told them that she made a promise to God and
nothing would stop her from following Him. So that was super cool. One
of her daughters told us that she wanted to listen and would like to get
baptised as well after she listened to the testimony of Sabina. She
lives in another area, but she will still be a wonderful reference for
And as a side note, we finally had a baptism where everything just
worked out. There was noise from all the children, but that was about
it. We had planned everything a head of time and it actually turned out
like we planned. That was pretty amazing. So that's the first time in my
mission that that's happened. So I could feel the spirit and relax a
lot more that day.
Other than that, I've been eating cow liver with rice and showering
in ice cold water every day, so everything is normal. We got "pizza" as
well, so that was pretty cool... Though I'm gonna have to eat real pizza
as soon as I get back. I can't wait for that and a real hamburger. And
real ice cream. And Root Beer. And, well, the list could get pretty
long, so I'll just leave it there. But I can't complain in all honesty,
I'm really happy here. I guess my blessings all come in different ways.
But I've really been blessed with the chance to help people here. I
love every day and every person that we teach. We'll be working really
hard to help others see the blessings of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Just keep those I teach in your prayers and I know they'll find the
faith to come unto Christ.
Thanks for all of your love and support! I love you all and you're all in my prayers!
