WASN'T THAT 8 WAY SKYPE CALL SO FUN?! So crazy to think that next time I call home I'll be like within weeks of being in your actual presence. Time is flying way to fast, but it was so great to see all of my fam. Thank you to the fam with kids that have taught them to still remember me :)
Wow so I don't know how much I should tell that hasn't already been told. This week we went to the baptism of Maddie, the amazing girl we met less than a transfer ago and was baptized this weekend! For those who didn't hear the story, Maddie we found knocking doors and she's 18 and she told me she was going to go to school in Idaho so I proceeded to count all of my idaho facts that my best friend Joelle helped me learn and told her all about Shauna the world famous cow which definitely caught her interest and eventually we taught her restoration and committed her to be baptized and yesterday she was BAPTIZED! She is amazing and I've never been so grateuful I went to Idaho and saw that cow.
Other miracles, we're teaching a lady named Rosa who is moving to Mexico in like two weeks but she definitely knows the church is true and wants to be baptized so we're working on teaching her all the lessons but she'll be baptized in Mexico, she said she knows where the church is, which means we get to send an awesome referral and skype session with the mexico elders! Referrals are so great. The church is so true.
petra is doing awesome. We had a lesson with her this week and she was like "hermanas, don't worry, I'm stronger than Satan" and we were like what Petra and she was like "sometimes Vicente starts kissing me but then i get this really hot feeling and it hurts so i just move to the other room" and we were like WHAT PETRA YOURE SO STRONG and she says Vicente always invites her to drink beer and she just says "no vicente i dont drink anymore". LIterally this is the woman we haven't taught in two weeks since she missed her baptisimal date and then she says "I want to be baptized July 29. It's my birthday. Get it. Because " gah i can't say it in Inglish its not as funny she said "porque voy a nacer" hahahahahahah SHES SO FUNNY AND SO AMAZING I LOVE THE MISSION :)
Wow, I could list off lilke a million other miracles like the fact that we're teaching a lil girl named Kamay who's sisters all are members but they all have sickle cell and her parents are bipolar and theres some agression in the house but we went by and everything was crazy and we sat in the corner with her of the door frame and we just sang I am a child of God together as everyone was screaming around us and she just stared me in the eyes and sang to me and I could've cried the spirit was so strong as children just know that they are children of a loving heavenly Father it changes everything. I loved talking to my family, but what I loved even more is that I get to see the hand of the Lord every day and see people recognize how much God loves them every day.
Thank you for all the sacrifices you make so that I can be here and I can serve our Lord and Savior. I love this work and I love Jesus Christ. Oh and by the way hermana short and i are here for another 6 weeks! COUNT YA BLESSINGS ALL OF FEDERAL WAY IS GETTING BAPTIZED :)
