Berenice, Zane and Stephanie


This week was great! We had 3 baptisms yesterday! Berenice, Zane, and Stephanie. Berenice is in her late 30's and Zane and Stephanie are her children. It was a great baptismal service, but I don't have any pictures because they showed up really late, and we had to kind of rush the service a little bit. It was really great, and I'm glad to have been a part in teaching them the Gospel. They will be great members. Berenice's husband Rodrigo will probably be getting baptized in the next month or 2, but we're also really excited for him!
  Also, this week I went on an intercambio with the zone leaders down to San Juan, (my greenie area), and it was sweet! I got to see lots of people I haven't seen in a while. Including Vicente because He's been going to a YSA ward now. But we ran into him in the street and he came with us to a couple lessons, and it was great because he's been having a hard time as a recent convert, but having him there to bare his testimony was really strong, and It strengthened my testimony a lot.
  This transfer has gone by sooo fast. We're starting week four of the transfer and I feel like I just barely got here. My companions are great and we're really starting to get along great and teach with a lot of Harmony which is kind of hard to do sometimes in Trios.
  I'm so grateful for this opportunity to serve the Lord with 100% effort. I'm finally beginning to realize how rare this is, and how much we need to take advantage of it. My desires have changed so much on my mission, I've discovered that the thing I want more then anything is to be with the people I love forever in the Celestial Kingdom. And that desire has motivated me to talk to everyone, to bare testimony to everyone, to serve the people in my district and the people in my area, because I've learned to love them all. I hope everyone has a great week this week! Love you all!
