This week we also had the baptism of Zuzzet Bautista. We are super happy for her and her family. Her father was a non active member and after a little repentance process we reactivated him and he was able to baptise his daughter. We had the privilege to teach this family the basics of the gospel principles, and with her faith in Jesus Christ Zuzzet entered into the waters of baptism on Saturday. We are going to baptise again on Saturday, if all goes to plan. We will pray and fast :) Our investigators are progressing and we are enjoying the lessons we teach them. Even more baptisms will come!
The sun is still hot, the church is still true, and I am in love with missionary work. Some days are harder than others, but all days are worth the sacrifice. I continue to grow and thank my Father in Heaven for every experience, trial and blessing he puts in my life. I love my family and friends. Especially all the loved ones serving with me in the mission field! We are part of something so large, we should never take for granted this time we have to be missionaries. We are all so blessed!!!
P.S. Happy 4th of July!!!! just to think 1 year ago this week I was beating Jim Snow in horse shoes on the shore of Lake Powell. haha time flies.
Brother Snow's response:
Now that was a good letter! I loved how he gets promptings in English.
I think the sun is getting to him, that is not how I remember the horseshoe matches. He sure did get sick too!
