Cleaning the baptismal font :) WAHOO!
HEY HEY! Time is flying, the spirit is testifying, the work is progressing, people's hearts are being touched, God is working miracles, and life is great! :)
Well, An. was baptized this week! She is such a special child of light. She is truly seeking Him and following Him. What does it feel like to see someone dressed in white, willing to take upon herself the name of Christ and always follow Him? Well, it is quite heavenly if you ask me. She is such a great example to me. She is truly an elect of the last days, conquering the worldly fears and following the truth.
So the branch had a temple trip this last weekend. A recent convert (Luciano age 12), was able to go. When we saw him this week we asked him "How was the temple?" He was in a group of friends and we expected him to play it off as nothing. He paused, and he got big tender eyes and softly said, "Really, it was incredible. Like nothing else." It was the sweetest moment! How special is this coming generation?! How beautiful is the Gospel? (P.S. I miss the temple SO much! I can´t wait to have one close by again. We are so blessed to have so many, SO close at home in the Utah!)
A quote from Elder Uchdorf that I have come to love...
"With such a glorious future, why get swallowed up in past or present things that don´t go quite as planned? Faith gave me the hope I needed to live joyfully now."
Find the joy! This week, as most has been full of unexpected twists and turns. THIS work is NOT going to be perfect...it is in the hands of humans, 18 and 19 year old's at that! It is ok when things don't go as planned. Find Joy and know that you are doing what you can! LIVE LOVE LAUGH. FIND the Joy...it is there!
I love you all! Hope you have the best FIRST week of December! :)
See you soon,
