This week we had the baptism of Hermana Victoria. It was very special and her mom came which was awesome because she is a little inactive but Victoria is going to be the example for her mom. It was a great service and my companion got to baptize. During the day my convert Hermana Estela how old a person had to be to be baptized and when we said 8 she said she wanted me to baptize her Grandson. So we went yesterday and taught her Grandson Gustavo. He is awesome and for a 9 year old he payed really good attention and answered every single question! So we made plans with Hermana Estela to have her bring her Gustavo to church so he can get to know the primary.One person can open the door to many more is what I have learned from this experience!
We have tons of Investigators right now it's so hard to talk about all of them. I absolutely love this area and the people and members here. If we work hard we should have about 5 baptisms in the beginning of March and this includes completing 2 families and that means that the whole family will be members in these families! Families are forever everyone and it's so good to know that I will see my family after this life with the blessings that this Gospel brings!
I want you all to know that I absolutely love this area. The people of Villa Canales call themselves canaleños. And there is a saying all over this town of Canaleños de Corazon and that means like Canaleños of heart. And I love this saying so I went to the town offices with my companion and asked for a shirt with this saying and they gave me one, but it was even better than I imagined it says: Orgulloso de ser canaleño de Corazon or Proud to be canaleño of the heart. I will definitely be wearing this shirt often after the mission because I am a canaleño de corazon!
I hope you all know I have a strong testimony of Our Saviour Jesus Christ. I am a representante of Him, not any other man. I know and testify with all of my heart that he lives and loves every one of us. I hope you all have an amazing week and find the best in everything!
p.s.The sidewalk says Somos canaleños de Corazon or we are canaleños de Corazon
