January 6, 2016

Happy New Year everyone! This is my first email of 2016! I hope you all had a memorable time with all the festivities and hope you enjoyed it. We went to the house of the mission Secretaries to spend new years with them. We didn't have permission to be up the whole night, so we went to bed and set an alarm for 11:55to shout Happy new Year. The alarm went off and we were all so tired so we all just heard the fireworks here and fell back asleep. That was my New Years experience. 

This week I had some awesome experiences. I got to do a baptismal interview for a lady who got baptized this last Sunday. She is deaf however, so her sister was there and helped translate. She also taught me how to say a few things in Spanish sign language like " Don't worry" or " congrats and good job" as well as " I am a mormon missionary" haha it was an awesome interview and was so cool to just focus on the spirit and watch this lady sign her testimony. That was a really cool experience! 

We also had a miracle this Sunday as we we going around reminding all of our investigators about church. We called one lady Hermana Rebekah who was super positive (Her dad was a member and has recently passed away, this prepared her to receive the gospel) and she said she was for sure going. We had less luck with all our other investigators but we went with high hopes to church. Sacrament meeting began and she didn't show up... then they passed the sacrament. I sat there the whole time watching the guys who push the button to open the gate and everytime they opened it I watched with high hopes that it would be this lady. Then 50 minutes into the meeting she showed up, late but she showed up! I can't explain how happy I was when she got there. She felt the spirit so much at church and absolutely loved it, next week she says she's going to bring her kids whether they want to or not because she wants to share the gospel with them! 

This was a great start to the new year. Today we had our zone training with the new zone and it was good to get to know everyone and talk about the attitude of our mind. That truly is a huge factor in this work! I love you all and hope you enjoy the many adventures that await you in this new year. My testimony ever remains the same that this is the true gospel and in and through our Savior Jesus Christ we can find peace and joy. Love you all, 
Elder Daybell
