Hope you are all doing well! How is everything going? It has continued to be hot in Mexico, but it’s OK because we have been at the work of the Lord.
Well, the best news about this week was definitely the three baptisms we had! Miriam, Mariane, and Kevin all got baptized. They were very excited all week long and it ended in a great baptism service at the end. A lot of people from the ward were able to go. Mayra gave a talk and it was awesome. She spoke like she had been a member her whole life and she had been a member her whole life and she has just barely completed a month as a member. She shared her experience of being baptized with everyone and it really strengthened all of us. Elder Struthers and I performed the ordinances. Probably the best part was that Miriam’s husband came. It was the first time we had met him and we could definitely see the effect the spirit had on him.
Apart from that, we are also going to have a baptism in the coming weeks. Estefania is still really excited for her baptism. She also came to the baptism and she really enjoyed it. She told us afterwards that she wants her baptism to be just like Miriam’s.
She has accepted everything we have taught her so far. She did have a little difficulty with the ward of wisdom. She felt like it would be hard to leave behind coffee and tea. Luckily, mayra and Fredy are a big help. They assured her that it can be done. That they were able to leave it all behind to follow God’s will. We only have a couple of lessons left to teach her and she will be ready for baptism.
The rest of the week went really well today. We actually learned how to make hammocks. One of the elders in our zone, Elder Mayers, came over to our house and showed us how to do it. It was a lot of fun. It took a couple hours and we were only able to make one about 6 inches wide. But it was really fun to learn!
Thanks for all of your prayers,
