Ixtapuluca Week 3
FIRST BAPTISM IN MEXICO!!!
Olga Lemos Vargas was baptized in the Ayotla ward this past Saturday, and confirmed yesterday in sacrament meeting, and I had the marvelous opportunity of baptizing her. We found her two weeks ago, right after my first meal with a member here in Ayotla, and she´s been a golden investigator ever since. It was a little funny because she was afraid of the water, but it all worked out, and now her family is very excited to learn and join her. Her husband Pedro, and two of her four daughters, Miriam and Brenda will enter the waters of baptism the 11 of March.
Oscar Palma showed up for church yesterday which is Great news because despite his busy busy schedule, he´ll be ready to be baptized this Saturday along with Conny Gonzalez, hopefully.
The work down here is AMAZING, we have lots of investigators, around 6 with baptismal dates scheduled. Our mission president promised us when we first got here that if we prayed with real intent, fasted, and doubled the effort we´ve ever put into anything, we could baptize every week. He was right.
Although many things come up, and lots of things happen (this work is NOT easy), I know that the Lord is directing our paths, and helping us to help all those that we come across. I´m very excited and very grateful to be a tool in the hands of the Lord.
