Called To Serve
July 2018 - July 2020
Week 44 . . . Baptism Day!
Emelyn, Darlyn and Martin got baptized!!!!! Holy, we just barely got finished with the service and I'm not going to lie, it was the most spiritual baptism I've ever been too. This family is honestly amazing. They have been going through a really hard time and they told us that finding them has completely changed everything. So, this is the family that we contacted when Martin jumped out and scared us with the nerf guns on our way home one night. hahaha We have been working with them a lot lately and they really are incredible people. They accepted the gospel so well and have been waiting for this day their entire lives honestly. A couple days ago we went with them for their baptismal interviews. At the end I asked if I could take a picture with them. They were so excited to take the picture and then after their mom, Reina, says to them "Someday you're going to look back at this picture and think ´these people changed my life´". When she said that I didn't think i could ever be so happy. To know that i could have done something so small but that made such a big change in the lives of this family. They have been waiting for this opportunity their entire lives and today they were able to take that step. We were getting changed for the baptism today when Martin ran out of the changing room and he ran up and hugged us and yelled "I'm so happy!!!!" Oh my it was honestly the coolest experience ever today. I got to baptize Martin and Emelyn and then Rasmussen baptized Darlyn. It was such an awesome service and it's something I will never forget!!! Hermana Reina was talking to us after and said that she had never felt anything like that ever before and that she had just put her kids on a bus to salvation. Holy Moses, that was so cool!!!!!! I'm so happy right now I can't even describe it. Something amazing happened today and I"m just lucky enough to witness it.
Other than that, being with them all wee, the only other thing that happened was that we had the last conferencia with Presidente Haws! He taught us about the importance of the temple and how we always need to be worthy and remember the convenios that we make there. He is such an awesome guy. How he teaches is different than anyone I've ever seen. hahaha He is so animated and is just all over the place. It's the best! He told us how we need to really think about how cool it is that this is the only time we are going to live the law of consecration in our whole lives for most and we need to take advantage of it. It's something that I always new but it really made me think about how remarkable the mission is. To be able to be our here for 2 years searching for people like Reina, Emelyn, Darlyn, and Martin and introducing them to something that can change absolutely everything. Loving the mish and loving the feeling that I have right now!!!!
Hope you all have a good week and I also love you folks!
