SAMMY, ROMINA, and VALENTINA got baptized!!!!!!! We are SO happy! But lets just say it has been a crazy week. Satan knows when we are about to make good decisions and tries to stop us. This is true for missionaries and investigators alike. So Valentina is the cousin of Sammy and Romina is Sammy´s mom. In Valentina´s family there were some trials that all came in this week right before the baptizm. We have prayed so much for this family this week. And you know what? Everything worked out and they were baptized this weekend. I even sang a musical number and they all cried. Romina shared her thoughts afterward and it was so powerful. Godliness is truly manifest in the ordinances thereof. (DYC)
I have also been studying the New Testament. Thanks to President Diaz our whole mission is studying the New Testament and loving it. I was reading right before Christ goes to the garden of Gethsemane. I learned that shortly before, I believe the day before or a few days before, the details are unclear, Christ goes to the temple. And then that very night he institutes the sacrament. These two covenants: the temple and the sacrament, were necessary to give Him the strength he needed to perform the atonement. As I thought about this all week I realized the necesity we have to partake of the sacrament and go to the temple. Renewing these covenants gives us the strength to live our lives.
We had a zone activity today and went to the Botanic Gardens. It was a blast. Photos attatched.
What a blessing it is to be a missionary!
Love you all!Hermana Kelson
