Two Baptisms!

Hello!!

I don’t have a lot of time this week so I’m going to try and sum all this up. Well, I just want to say that I love the area that I’m in and the people here in this area. This ward is mostly made up of converts and they are so strong. It is so amazing to see so many people willing to help the work move forward. I love it here!

An amazing thing that happened this week was we had 2 baptisms! I think I talked about Sandra and Igor, how the Elders have been teaching them for a long time. Well, they got baptized on Saturday. It was a great experience. I thought of the quote that Beth sent me, “There is no such thing as a homesick missionary at the baptismal font." It is so true.

The Elders are just great too. They were so happy and Igor and Sandra were so happy. It was just awesome to see everyone full of joy. Igor and Sandra just took a huge step in their lives. They were washed clean of all of their sins, and took upon themselves the name of Christ.

Oh I love this gospel. I love my Savior and all that I have because of Him. That reminds of a video that I LOVE.  https://www.lds.org/youth/video/because-of-him?lang=eng   Watch it!

 I love being a missionary!

And I love you.

Tchau gente, falou
