We had another baptism! Morgan got baptized and confirmed this weekend. It was an awesome experience. His mom, dad, sister, and aunt came. His dad and sister seem pretty interested and we are going to start teaching them this week.
Morgan is super excited. The day of the baptism we went and played soccer in the morning and he made up a chant that went, “1..2..3..Baptism!” He was interviewed on Sunday and will receive the Priesthood and probably a calling on the 23rd of November. He told us that now after his baptism, his biggest desire that he has is to receive a calling and prepare to go on a mission.
Other great news is that we will have ANOTHER baptism this week. Lorena is really prepared for her baptism on the 15th. All we need is her interview. Everything looks good for this week.
We have three other dates as well. We are teaching a child name Monserrath and we have a goal with her for the 22nd but her mom thinks it is too soon. If we get her mom’s permission, she will be baptized on that date. Also a father and son both name Wilber. Their date is for the 13th of December.
Wilber is a great investigator. The only problem is that we can only see him on Sundays because he works in Taxi. That is the biggest obstacle for his progress, but he has shown a lot of faith and desires so far.
His son really surprised us too. He is 11 and came to church for the first time on Sunday. Then the Primary started practicing for the program (I am playing the piano so we were there) and Wilber was singing right along. It was like he was already a part of the ward. He absolutely loved it and is really excited to come back next week.
Well, the Lord surely is hastening the work of salvation. I am just glad to be part of it!
