Week 52 Letter March 10, 2014

Hello Everybody!

This week was a little crazy! The weather was all over the place, hot one day, cold the next, windy the other, and raining as well. We were busy and going to all kinds of meetings. BUT, we had a baptism so it all turned our well!

So we had two baptisms on Saturday. The first one was Sugey. The rest of her family had already been baptized but she still was not sure. It was great to help her join the rest of her family in the waters of baptism. The other baptism was Pedro, the brother in the wheelchair. For me, the baptism was very special because of the help of the ward with him. All of the ward was asking about him and wondering how they could help us to help him. One of the brothers in the ward, hermano Fred, baptized him and I was also there to help him in and out of the water.

It was a great experience. A lot of people came to see the baptism and were able to experience the Spirit as those two entered into the waters of baptism. It made me smile at how anxious the people were to see the baptism. Even the people who are not members were crowding around to be able to see what the baptism is. I am so glad that the Lord has given us the authority to act in his name and do baptisms so that we all can return to him. 

Well the baptism was a little crazy as well though. We got a call at 4, an hour before the baptism, that nobody had gone to fill up the font. Luckily we were already ready but the problem is that it takes 3 hours for the font to fill up by itself. SO, we took a taxi to get there faster and started filling the font with buckets. Then as we got more help. Elder Alvarez and I took the mop carts outside and filled them up with a faucet. Then we would run them inside to dump it in the font. We probably had a little too much fun with that. However, thanks to our valient effort the font was filled on time!

Thanks for all of your letters and prayers.
Until Next Week
Elder Lightheart
