tuesday to satuday was committed to preparing for the baptism. not the easiest thing but we pushed through.
on wednesday we were helping a family put a tarp on their house so they could have a roof, I'm not kidding their was only one room in the whole tiny house that had a roof. and as we were putting it up we found a scorpion! it was tiny but it was still kinda scary. the brother we were helping cut off the stinger and let it crawl around on his hand. i thought to myself i might never get a chance to have a scorpion on my hand so i told him to hand it over haha. pretty freaky but i got some pictures.
saturday we had a zone meeting in the morning then we cleaned the baptismal font. i lost rock paper scissors and got the awesome job of cleaning the cockroaches out. then we had the baptism. Jesus y Angela invited everyone they knew and half the ward came, my comp and i were pretty nervous but we both got it done in one try. after Jesus y Angela were really happy and they said they felt different. it was a really cool experience helping them to be baptized. on Sunday they were confirmed.
today we went and ate pizza and slept because we've been a little worn out haha.
this week has been a big spiritual experience for me especially seeing Jesus y Angela's faces brighten up after their baptism and their desire to come unto Christ .I've loved being out here and this just makes me wanna work harder. i honestly can say i know i wouldn't have learned the things I've learned without the mission spiritually, mentally and physically. a couple weeks ago dad sent me a quote " yes, Christ changes people, and changed people can change the world" - Ezra Taft Benson. i know that right now Christ is changing me to be a better person. I know without a doubt this is his church and i hope i can help at least one more person to come unto Christ and have a happier life with reason and hope.
