Wonderful baptism this Saturday. (week 40)

We had an amazing week. And it all ended with the blessing of seeing Anastacio get baptized. We also spent plenty of time walking down unfamiliar streets and meeting new people. The things that have happened this past week are going to open doors for plenty of miracles in this area in the near future.

Anastacio is just amazing. He was so excited for his baptism. His example is going to bring lots of blessings to his family. We were talking to his son who was the branch president here and he told us he imagined seeing the whole chapel filled with the majority being his family. Anastacio's decision to change and make this commitment will help soften the hearts of his other children and other members of his family that live in the area. We are looking forward to working with more of his family and seeing continued blessings because of Anastacio's example. Being a missionary and being able witness these changes in peoples lives is a blessing on it's own. The baptism was great although it ended up lasting over an hour and a half. We didn't realize the font took over an hour to fill so we started filling it only an half an hour before the service was to start. It may have been a lot longer than normal but it was still a great spiritual event. 

I can't think of very much to write this week since everything was focused around the baptism. We are still meeting awesome people as we continue looking for those the lord has prepared for us. It may take a little work but it is worth it. We play an important part in the lord's work "to bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of man." ( Moses 1:39 ) With out missionaries and people actively sharing the gospel lots of people would  be lost and without the opportunity to receive the gospel. I am so grateful for my ability to aid in this work and see the lord's hand do miracles in the lives of others. 

I hope everyone back home is doing well. Keep being awesome! And if anyone has any questions for me feel free to ask. I don't always know what to write in my emails. 

Love you all!
