Baptism!!!!

with missionaires DSCN1125JUAN WAS BAPTIZED THIS SATURDAY!!! For the past four or five weeks we have been teaching our investigator Juan and preparing him for baptism, but He did’t want to give us a sure yes until we were teaching him this past Friday with the Bishop and after a looong pause he said yes and Saturday he entered the waters of baptism.  Sunday, after telling us that he wasn’t going to be able to make it because he had to take care of his car, he showed up at the church in a white shirt to recive the Gift of the Holy Ghost. It has been a blast teaching him because he has a strong Evangelical back ground and lots of questions, but when it came down to commiting to keep a comandment of God he always is 100% ready to pull through, because it is the Word of God. I loved it that he didn’t commit to baptism until he was convinced that it was what God wanted him to do. One of his questions was over who was Joesph Smith and to help him clear up his doubt we watched the movie Joesph Smith , the prophet of the Restoration and at the end with tears in his eyes he declared “there are no more questions”. The spirit confermed that Joesph Smith really was his chosen prophet, called to restore His Church., He is also very dedicated to serving, right after his baptism when we were putting up the chairs he came back saying that He has to help because now that he was a member of the Congrigation that it was his duty too. 

We also helped the ward clean the church and we got to get a bit wet with Hermana Coca again spraying down the windows with a hose. We also invited another one of our investigators, Lucia, to help and she worked even till after we started taking out the refreshments and the members had to convince her to come in and eat. Lucia is really an amazing woman she has raised the two children of a friend and then when this friend had no place to live she took care of her till she found a place to live. The people here have such an amazing Spririt of service and Love. WE are also teaching the children of one of our members menos activos and well it is a bit overwhealming teaching 7 people all at once but it sure is a blast and we are always laughing about something. I really do love the joy that comes from teaching the gosple and helping others find and stay on the path that leads to eternal life!
