The Truth

Wow what a roller coaster of a week/emotions. But all in all God has been way too good to us and we need to keep on giving all that we have and then some back to him.

Wilfredo was confirmed yesterday and a member gave him a wonderful blessing. He is doing well and literally cannot put down the Book of Mormon and the Bible. haha He is such a wonderful example to me.

We had a super spiritual experience this week finding a guy who was super prepared. He felt the spirit so strong in the lesson and he said he heard from God that morning that two people were going to come by his house and that he should let them in. Super cool!!! But he texted us and because of family problems he cannot accept us anymore.  Then, the following day a family of 7 dropped us too. But, we are trying our best and be positive and hope and pray they accept the gospel one day when the missionaries pass by again.

Emanuel Charbonier Gonzalez was baptized yesterday. I cannot begin to explain the joy that filled my heart yesterday. His mom and dad, who are not members, came too. When he and a member named President Aguayo got in the water a peace filled the room. As the words were pronounced and as he came out of the water the spirit touched every heart in the room. President Aguayo gave Emanuel a huge hug and it was such a wonderful moment to experience. His mom's eyes filled with tears and as testimonies were given the spirit changed our hearts and we felt the power and truthfulness of the words that were spoken. I am beyond grateful for this gospel. Baptism is the gate, the beginning to the path to eternal life. I know it and I have felt it.

After he got out changing we gave each other a huge hug and he said, "Thank you. I am so happy."

I am eternally grateful for this mission and I know this gospel brings true happiness that lasts for eternity. All we have to do is be obedient to have it.
Love you all!
