This week was a great week as we had a lot of great success as our last week together as companions. That's right there are changes and my companion is leaving this area and I will be receiving a new companion tomorrow! This will be my 4th change in this area and so I will end with almost 6 months in 1 area! And I love this area, I feel like it's my house now and the members are more like my family than just friends! But I am happy to stay here as we have a baptism theof a man that has been showing his faith in many ways.
This man is Juan Carlos and he is a huge example of faith. He has felt the spirit and even fasted with us to help him with what he is going through. He has been with his girlfriend for 10 years and have had many problems. He loves the church and goes with his children to church without his wife because she doesn't want religion. He asked her this last week to marry him and she said no, even after 10 years of being with him, so he showed his faith and left her in order to progress in the church and be baptized! He is a great example to his kids and they are praying with him and reading scriptures at night. I can't say I have seen faith like that for a long time. I am so happy to be a part of this miracle and have my faith increase as I watch his example of faith.
This pastwe also had the baptism of America and her daughter! America has been visiting missionaries for a year and finally made some decisions to be baptized this last Sunday! It was a wonderful day and a great way to end the change with my companion!
Last Tuesday we found another critter in our house. A big, hairy legged Tarantula. I don't know what to think... Snakes, scorpions, tarantulas and sometimes we have to chase bats out of the house. 6 more weeks, I hope I can make it ;)
Love you all,
Baptism of America
Their friend they found.
