June 8, 2015- An Upcoming Baptism
Hey Family and Friends!!
This week we have been really busy. We taught 14 lessons this week, the most lessons I've ever taught in a week. It may not seem like a lot compared to some of the missions elsewhere, like in South America, but 14 is a lot for us.
Something we've been focusing on this week is helping Lani prepare for her baptism. We had a lesson with Lani and the Lopez family on Wednesday and it was a super powerful lesson. Lani told us that two Sundays ago while she was at church, she received an answer to her prayers as she was talking to Hermana Lopez. She received an answer to her question about whether the Book of Mormon is true when Hermana Lopez said something that was phrased exactly how she had been saying it in her prayers. During the lesson the spirit was super strong and she started crying a lot. We've been able to meet with her a couple other times this week and she is getting excited for her baptism on June 20th. She just has to meet with the zone leaders this Saturday and if she passes that interview she will be able to be baptized on the 20th. She has also asked me to baptize her.
We attended a branch party this week where the members played soccer and ate carne asada for dinner. Martin and Lani came and so did Cesar and Hermana Sabillon. We didn't get permission to play in the game since it wasn't our preparation day so we just had to sit and watch. Martin was tearing it up out there.
I hope everyone has a great week!
