So we had a good week this week! We saw some less-actives in church that hadn´t been there since I first came here in July! We were pretty excited, as was the Bishop, since it´s his son and his son´s family. They are really good people, but they just let some comment or some small action really get to them, bother them, and offend them enough to make them fall away from the church. It´s really sad, and something that I hope we can all avoid--we should remember that yes, there are imperfect people in the church, but that we shouldn´t let that get to us. We need to remember that the reason why we go to church is to obey the Lord so that we can receive blessings in this life and in the life to come, and not worry about the other people that are there. Anyway, I´ll get off my soapbox, but I felt like I should say that :)
We have been doing well here, and I actually just had another chance to baptize a new convert to the church, one of the sister´s investigators. It was another really neat experience, and I am really glad for the chance that I had to do it!
Other than that, just keep doing well in your lives! Pray for one of our investigators named Maria Josefina, as she really needs prayers in her behalf. Thanks for everything, and know that this church is true! It´s where we can find true peace and joy in life, and where we can find the way to have eternal families. I love it!
The sisters´ golden investigator family! I got to baptize Gerardo this Saturday, and he is gonna baptize his wife this upcoming saturday! Great experience!
