April 17, 2016

This week has been a mix of a sublime week with a bitter ending... So far this week we have not too much luck with finding and teaching new investigators... We are trying and working... but it is hard.  The end of the week was great though.  We Made sure Reyna would have a wonderful baptismal this week.  We did some emergency planning when we found out there was not any baptismal clothes that fit her.  She is a plus sized women... So we went to a less active member who helped us expand the baptismal tunic so that it would fit better.  She did a great job and we even received a reference in the process. 
This baptismal service was amazing.  Most people were there waiting 30 minutes before the baptism started so that they could take pictures and listen to hymns to set the mood and invite the Holy Ghost.  The baptism started on time at 7pm and it went according to plan. The Spirit was very strong during the two talks and then later the bishop baptized Reyna.  The most powerful part of the baptism for me was the part with the testimonies.

We did interchange with Elder Romero and Elder Rojas... I went with Elder Romeero in his area.  He is doing well.  he gets a little nervous when he teaches but the man knows how to plan very well.  He just needs to come out of his shell. but he does the work fine...
