Holy Moly! Seriously, this week has been wild. I’ve never fasted and prayed so much in my life. and we’ve seen so many miracles. It was stressful trying to help all of our investigators and everything but in the end, it was incredible because 4 of the people we’ve been teaching decided to get baptized this week!
Francisco is 17 and he’s the best. He’s such an example of faith an humility and just wants to do the right thing and help people. He has such a sweet testimony and is helping his family too so they can get baptized soon! (pray for them :)
Her family got baptized like a year ago but she’s way Catholic and the missionaries have been teaching her for about that time. She finally decided that she wanted to get baptized and it was super awesome to see that. She’s a great lady.
Jessica and Sebastian
Jessica is the mom, her daughter got baptized like 2 years ago and recently decided to come to church. We talked to them and the little brother Sebastian wanted to be baptized. One day we were praying in church for help about what we were going to do to and who would be able to progress and they just showed up! Since that time we’ve been able to teach them and they also were able to get baptized on Saturday!!
God is so good. Miracles happen!!! Still can’t believe its 2018 but I’m excited to be here in the mission and keep sharing the gospel here in Lima
This past year (11 months) in the mission have been the best. I’ve learned so much, most importantly about relying on the Lord and helping others and that the important part of life is living the gospel because its the way to find the peace and happiness we all need. Recently, I’ve been able to increase my faith so much and see that with the Lord help, miracles are possible. seriously its incredible to see the changes in people’s lives and the joy they can be as families when they strengthen their relationship with Jesus Christ and repent and decide to follow him! I’m so grateful for the chance to be a missionary and for what I’ve learned this past year and all the miracles I’ve seen as God just puts prepared people in our way.
Happy New Year! I love y’all so much! Keep being great and reading The Book of Mormon and helping the missionaries, they need a lot of help. So too the investigators and the new members.
Anyway, thanks for everything! I love y’all a whole lot!!!
