Hope you all had a fabulous week :) Workin hard down here in Nuevo Chimbote, como siempre!
Buuuuuuut WE HAD A BAPTISM THIS WEEK!!! LUIGGI WAS BAPTIZED!!!! It was quite the miracle. We had a lesson with him earlier in the week to see how he was and how things were going with his family, and he told us that he had talked to them for a long time the day before and that they had decided to give their permission for his baptism!!!!! We were soooooo excited! I almost died. Just almost :)
So we asked him if he wanted to be baptized on the 8th of August, but he wanted THIS WEEK. Because our stake is having a huge youth conference and on Thursday they are going to the temple in Trujillo and he wants to go with everyone! So let's just say that all of Thursday and Friday were filled with calls to leaders and the bishop and interviews and getting everything pulled together! Because he's been coming to church for so long, almost the WHOLE ward ended up showing up to his baptism Saturday night. And his parents came too. We were kind of nervous, but they were very respectful and asked some good questions. Sooo dodged a bullet there :)
But it was a wonderful baptismal service. The spirit was so strong and when he bore his testimony afterwards, it was amazing. Then yesterday in church he was confirmed and received the priesthood AND his interview for the temple! Love it!
I know that this church is true and that Christ has shown us the way through his EXAMPLE and how we should always try our hardest to follow Him! I was reading in Alma 37:6-7 about how through small and simple things are great things brought to pass! And its so very true, through little acts of service and kindness GREAT changes can be made within a person!
Love you all so much!
