I have an awesome lesson to tell you all about that happened!
It's Alejandro! We went over to have a lesson, but as usual we never
get to it cause he has awesome questions all the time. So he asked if
he can skip over to the part of where Christ comes to the Americas,
which is perfect because that chapter talks a lot about baptism ☺️
So our minds were blown, and he said "so baptism is the only way" and we said "yes"
And then we asked "Alejandro do you know that the Book of Mormon is
true?" And he said "Of course I do, it makes perfect sense" , "when
will you feel ready for baptism?"
And he said..........................
"Let me read a little bit more"
Ahhhhh I don't care about the fact that he didn't want to set a date
for baptism. The fact that he's actually gaining a testimony of the
gospel and seeing blessings in his life is what literally makes my
heart want to explode with happiness!!!
AND he came to church which was awesome, there's a recent
convert that is from Columbia that just got baptized last week. They hit it off perfectly!
And made plans to hang out !!! SO AWESOME!
ITS ALL ABOUT THE FRUIT!!!! It's not just about getting them in the
water! It's about seeing their progress, seeing them exercise their
faith! Seeing a smile on their face and letting us know that they have
felt the spirit and that they know the Book of Mormon is true is
literally what makes everything worth it!
And THEN getting them in the water!
That's literally the only thing I will say in this email because it's
the main thing that has happened this week.
Here are some funny highlights
* we met a drunk men, where he went on a rant about how my skin was
too white to be Hispanic :(
|HALLOWEEN DECORATIONS EVERYWHERE #ILOVECHICAGO|
* Not being able to sleep, and Hermana Juan sang to me 5 different
Mexican lullabys till I fell asleep
* One of our less actives that is still kind of Catholic went on
vacation to Tennessee and they got us these rocks that are fools gold
and said to us " Here Hermanas we got you guys these because you girls
are like jewels in the eyes of Jesus"
* The Elders and we awfully sang at a fireside and literally practiced
for 2 hours and it still didn't sound good.
Anyways, love you all!
