Hay un Dios en Israel!
This week was filled with so many tender mercies, so many miracles, but I just want to talk about one very big one, well actually two….
I have quickly come to realize in these eight months that my mission is not going to be filled with hundreds of baptisms or things like that. Like the Savior, my mission is a lot about the “one.” When I came to this area, I quickly realized that the Lord did not call me here to find new converts, the work he needed me to do was hidden in a little wooden hut at the outskirts of our area… We have been teaching eight year old twin girls, Nicole and Fabiola. Their mom is a less active sister, and so they had gotten swept under the rug and forgotten about. But this saturday we found two little white dresses and they were baptized!
It was a joined baptism with the zone leaders. Five children were all baptized, and I think that it was the most beautiful baptism I have ever seen. The spirit was so strong!
So, even though these twins don’t count as convert baptisms, or for mission numbers, it really does not matter. Two little princesses got that much closer to their Heavenly Father.
I love this work, I love you all so much. Keep smiling, and find the “one” that needs your help and we will work miracles.
Hurrah for Israel!
