This week I had the wonderful opportunity to have a wonderful baptism. I can personally testify that the Lord does prepare people for us to find. Dany was an investigator that we found from a member. Actually, the member contacted us and said that he wants his family to be taught. He is a wonderful person. The baptism was okay, but really funny. We had to get to the church at 8:30am to fill the font. the drain would not plug and the water would not get hot. After a long time everything worked. We had the baptism (my first one!!!!!) and as I got into the water it was super cold. As I was saying the prayer/ordinance thing, my mind went blank......it was super embarrassing because I hadn´t practiced this before (i know what I´m doing for companionship study now!!!) and so the 2nd counselor had to help me by whispering the words to me. Plus, as I was putting him under the water I wasn´t ready for him to fall back and so he kind of fell in and made a big splash (kaplush!!!) it was funny and neither he nor I will forget that.
Anyway, on new year’s we went back to the roja´s again. we played risk (we found a risk game in our piso last week and I am not quite sure if it´s okay to play it, but we did). we also played spoons and I won!!! On the holidays here in spain we can stay out till 11pm, but be in bed by 11:30. I was awake in my bed till midnight.
Nothing much really happened this week. We did some more post christmas caroling with the ward. A missionary is leaving this week from the ward here in castellón. She is going to the madrid mission--had a going away party last night.
Well I need to go. I love you all and love this work. I had the pleasure of finishing the book of mormon this week. I can testify that it is a wonderful book. Christ speaks to us as we read. It is the keystone to our religion. If we know the book to be true, we know that Joseph Smith was a true prophet and that Thomas S. Monson is the prophet leading this church today. We as members are to flood the earth with this book. I challenge you all this week to send a small scripture this week or something you like about the Book of Mormon on social media about this book. One of my favorite scriptures is Alma 7:11-13 because I think of my mom when I read it. I know this book is true and that we can all be saved by the love and atonement of Jesus Christ if we repent and come unto him. I say this in the name of Jesus Christ, amen
See you all (vosotros) next week!!!
