Surprise Baptism!

March 17th, 2014

Soo this week was pretty awesome. I don´t have a ton of time so I´m going to write about two awesome things that happened.

The first was that we had a conference with Elder Benjamid De Hoyos who is a member of the preidency of the área of México. First he had a conference with the leaders and the missionaries and then one with just the missionaries. He was pretty awesome and learned some good ideas that have a lot to do with involving the members in missionary work. About training the members to be a good ¨closest mormon family¨ for the investigators that we have and also the importance of having lessons with members so that they have another source of help and support. Something else that he explained to us that was pretty cool was that in D&C 88:73, it tells us that the lord will hasten his work in his time, which time we know is now because of modern day revelation through the prophet Thomas S. Monson. But the verse that follows tells us how to Hasten the work which was pretty cool to discover.

And the suprise baptism. So Deyla is an 11year old girl who had fear of the wáter and was the only reason that she didn´t want to be baptised. So we had been tring to work with her and then we finally had a lesson with her and told her to pray to ask if she should be baptised and to ask for the strength and courage to do it. Later that day, her mom called us and told us that she was ready for the interview! So we did the interview tuesday then on Thursday she was able to get baptised with her older brother and his wife who live in another Ward but it was really awesome to be able to have the triple baptism and a real miricle that she was able to make that decisión now where for a long time before she wasn´t able to make it.

I hope you all have a wonderfull week this week! We are going to go to Monterrey this saturday to hear from Elder Cook which should be pretty awesome!

Love,
Elder Warren
