Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.
The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Psalms 46:10-11

More Baptisms!! 1/14/2013

Early morning in El Centro


First off, a very happy week to all of you!  I'm glad that y'all had a good week last week :) I'll let y'all know about investigators a little mas adelante :)  BUT, the big news, two more baptisms! We're really excited about the work we're doing here in this area, the spirit is working on people and helping them to come unto Christ.  We were able to baptize Yessenia and Mariela on Saturday and both were really good experiences :)  Yessenia just because she's been so unsure but finally accepted the invitation of the Savior to be baptized and she did it with a willing and grateful heart.  The spirit was great.

Mariela's baptism was a whole other experience.  To see her finally be able to realize the desire that she's had for over a year now and be baptized into the Lord's church was great. It was a small, quiet service. Focused entirely on the baptism.  She invited only those she was close to and had really played a part in her conversion and baptism, a very special service.

As for other investigators we've got a few.  Julieta is the mom of a kid we just reactivated but she never got baptized, she seems really open to the idea of going to church (she's been twice) and so we're just really trying to figure out her needs and address them with doctrine :)  We have Heidi, who is the wife of someone that Elder D activated and she's been to church several times but for some reason never accepted a fecha. We're going back tomorrow to see if we can put a fecha :)

Really I think that's it.
