Hola all 🙂
Such a fun and crazy week!
We had intercambios on Thursday– it was so fun! I went to Tecamac 1 with Hna. Rodriguez. She leaves this next cycle, so a week from today she goes home to El Salvador. But she was so nice, and I was able to teach with her the 10 commandments which I have yet to do and it was so fun! Because we taught it to a 9 year old girl, Suri, who was baptised last week. And it was so adorable because she had her scriptures all out and we were teaching her little hand trick things to help her memorize them, and she was marking them so sincerely in her scriptures and she was so young but had such excitement for the Gospel and for the words of The Lord. The intercambios really helped me recognize and remember how we are all children and God and we can all have that same excitement and innocent love for The Lord.
I had my first baptism on Saturday and it was just the greatest! It was a 15 year old named Isabel and afterwards she was saying how she wanted to go back in and be baptised again and again! It was such a cool feeling, and even greater to think that her parents want to be baptised too this Saturday! It is such a beautiful thing to bring people to the joy that you have. And the gospel fills me with joy.
I love being here and helping people recognize and gain the peace of the Gospel in their life. I love serving and the people here are all so kind and open hearted. I love The Lord and I love this work.
