This week....

BRYAN WAS BAPTIZED!!! Ahhhh it was the best day ever.  In the morning, we got to go to the temple with a Recent Convert, which was a really really neat experience.  The temple twice in one month, pretty lucky :)  Then we went a la capilla and set everything up for the baptism.  Baptisms are so so stressful... But it was so worth it.  The program was really good and very very spiritual.  I felt so happy! I'm so happy for Bryan - it has been a long process working with him.  We tracted into his house back in November, and it's been a long two months, but I'm so happy for him! After the baptism, after he recieved el espiritu santo y el saceredocio, he was telling us how he has never felt so loved.  Two weeks ago when we invited him to eat with the family Fernando, he said that meant everything to him.  He said he's never been invited to eat in somebody else's house, and he feels like the members here are his family.  He was suuuuuch a miracle and I'm so lucky to have been apart of his conversion.  

So at the beginning of the transfer, back before Christmas, we had Alma 6:6 up in our apartment and had decided that we were going to fast every Sunday.  Yesterday was our last Sunday fasting for "the souls who don't know God" and wow.. It has been the most incredible experience ever! Every single week of this entire transfer, every single week that we fasted, we had an Investigator or a Less Active come to church.  The power of fasting and prayer is so incredible! Espeically continuous fasting and prayer.  The blessings and miracles we saw.... so amazing! An experience that I will never forget.  

Such a good week! I love being a missionary! We have been working so hard with Bryan, and everything payed off as we were able to be apart of the baptism and to see his life completely change.  Helping others and changing their lives is what this work is all about - and I couldn't love being here and being a Missionary more than I do now!
