his week was sooooo great!!!!!

and Laura your new baby is adoreable (mom sent me a picture....) :) i cant wait to get to know him someday. 

We saw so many miracles this week.  so many and i feel like we really helped the people that the Lord needed us to help. 


We had a baptism!!!! WOOO HOOOO.  and it was one of the most amazing baptisms ive seen.  It was just so special.

weve been teaching Maria for a long time and shes always been unsure about baptism.  Shes listened to the missionaries so many times before (her son is a member in another branch and hes in the branch presidency... so she has a lot of exposure to the church.)  But shes really progressed solo because we havent had a whole lot of tiem to teach her.  but she reads and prays and quit smoking and when he son went to chilie with the stake to go to the temple she went with them (she didnt go in the temple...)  but its taken a lot of patience to get her to baptism because she wouldnt be rushed nad now i feel like it was the best thing.

And the service was so nice.  Walter planned everything.  the talks were from her grand daughters, he bore his testimony, they picked out the songs and organized everything.  all we had to do as missionaries is fill the font and bring food (but htey brought food too....) :) but oh man i cant tell you how happy it was i cant explain the joy that comes from seeing someone make changes in their lives so that they can follow the Lord. 

It really was an amazing weekend. with that and hte Relief Society Broadcast.  :) I love the new relief society presidency and i think every talk was perfect for me. nad also for an investigator that we brought :)  double whammy. 

But i really feel like the lord was guiding my steps and i hope that that keeps happening. :)

have a great week everyone
