What I've learned on the mission: the week before a baptism wouldn't be the week before a baptism if you didn't at some point think that the baptism would never happen. Kind of sums up this week haha. So we have been able to see Celfia pretty much every day since I got here but of course, the week before her baptism we were pretty much never able to see her. Monday? not there. Tuesday? had to leave suddenly and missed her baptismal interview. Wednesday? Couldnt get ahold of her. Thursday? We had meetings the entire day in Tampa and couldn't see her. By friday I was pretty convinced that she had fallen off the face of florida. But lo and behold, we were finally able to contact her, teach her and have her interview on friday and everything went perfectly with that. There were a few minor setbacks day of the baptism, but I mean those were well expected by now, but in the end everything went perfectly and there were a lot of members there to support her and welcome her into the branch. She was so happy. She is such a strong woman...none of her family could come to her baptism but she was just so happy and knew she was making the right decision so it didn't even matter to her. I forgot my camera chord so I can't send any pictures today but I will next week!
- We had Zone conference this week and I wish I had time to tell you all the things that I learned but ahh I dont. Basically....I just know that we have a Heavenly Father who knows us his children, a Savior Jesus Christ that helps us become the children our Heavenly Father knows we can be, and the Holy Ghost who leads and guides us so we can become closer to our savior jesus christ and heavenly father. It just all works so perfectly. Love you all and hope everyone has a good week!!
