This week was just a normal week in the mission field (whatever that means.)
The other hermanas in our ward had a baptism this week! Celeste was baptized saturday night and it was a beautiful baptism. Almost half of the zone was there with either investigators or new members. We had 4 investigators attend! It was amazing! Two of them were actually investigators that we had stopped visiting a few weeks ago because the husband said that he did not believe in God nor that there is life after death and all he did was disagree with us and try to argue. Last week we ran into them in the street and the wife said that their lives have improved a lot after our visit and that her husband now believes that there must be a God out there. We then invited them to the baptism and they came! I could tell that they felt the spirit and the husband even sang durring the hymns. I am not sure what will become of it all be we are going to try and visit them this week and see how it goes.
Paula and Ariel and their baby Lupe also came the the baptism. They are incredible! They have gone to church 4 times now and they have gone to a ward activity, stake activity and a baptism! They are now totally integrated into the ward. The ward is amazing and there are always people talking to them and sitting with them in all the classes. Little Lupe can only say 2 words: "papa" and "hermana!" Paula gave the closing prayer in the gospel principles class yesterday! After the baptism, Paula helped to clean up without anyone asking her and she said that the church is like her second home and she wants to help take care of it. She also said that she loves the feeling in the chapel so much that she never wants to leave!! I have no doubt that they will get baptised.The only problem is is that they need to get married and there is no space available in the regestro civil (where people get married legally) until early january =( However, I think that it is a blessing for them to have more lessons before their baptism to truly understand the doctrine.
I am happy to be here and I feel at home with the kind and loving people of San Rafael.
