This week was so amazing!! I am so happy that I stayed here in Missouri City!! We had a super busy week and were able to get a lot done! One night we visited a part member family (only the dad isn't a member). The dad (Hermano Rivas) has had the lessons before and is so ready to get baptized, he just doesn't make the time for us. So, he is never is home because he works all the time, but when we stopped by, he was there! We read Alma 34 with him and told him that this life is the time to prepare to meet God. He loved it and is now going to let us come over and re-teach him! His son is the less-active 20 year old that started coming back to church in May and is now about to put his mission papers in next week!!! He calls us Jose's Angels like Charlie's angels (:
Then we saw Hermano Martinez and he keeps talking about this "cambio drastico" (drastic change) meaning his baptism and does the quotation signs in the air as he talks about it (: He is totally going to get baptized soon!! Last night we had our first baptism here, the 9 year old boy named Quique, and it was amazing!! I have never felt so happy (: His whole family has changed so much in these last few weeks and now want us to help them to prepare to be sealed in the temple!!
Both Hermano Rivas and Hermano Martinez went to the baptism last night and said they felt the spirit so strongly! Hermana Kennedy and I sang "I Know that My Redeemer Lives" and everyone was crying! The spirit was so strong!
SO it was an amazing week and I am so excited to keep working with these people to help them come closer to Christ. Oh! And on Saturday I watched the General Relief Society Broadcast (in English!!!) and it was so great!! It's so important to make and keep our covenants because there is no other way for us to progress to become more like our Savior. Covenants help us live higher laws and learn how to better live like Christ wants us to. I hope y'all have a great week and keep choosing the right! Remember the covenants you have made and work hard to serve others and share your testimonies! <3 I love you!!!
OH! and we had Fiestas Patrias on Friday where everyone sets up a table from their country and has food and decorations! It was so awesome!! I had food from El Salvador, Honduras, Mexico, and Guatemala (: Hermana Kennedy and I even borrowed some sombreros and had stick on mustaches (: It was so fun!!
