This week was full of lots of surprises, good and bad. My testimony was strengthened about the power of faith this week as we prepared for Rodrigo's baptism. Almost the whole time that we have been here, everyone has been telling us that he would never get baptized, but for some reason, my companion and I have felt that he would receive his answer and that he would be baptized this month. Last week, he had still not received his answer, but we weren't worried. I have felt so strongly the whole time that God would answer him before his goal on the 18th. And although we had everyone else telling us otherwise, we never lost the faith and his prayer was answered! Thursday night, he told our ward mission leader that he had decided to be baptized at 10:00 in the morning. We had thought the whole time that his question was about the prophets. He had said many times that he didn't believe in latter day prophets and as many times as we taught and testified, it just seemed like he never understood. But he explained on Thursday that it wasn't his problem. What he wanted, was to DO MORE to prepare himself. He wanted to feel like he was making REAL changes in his life. And through the commitments that he followed through with and the support that he felt from the members that have been helping him, he made the decision to be baptized on Saturday. Sadly, he now has problems with pancreas and for the big fever that he had, he couldn't be baptized that day. But he is excited for this week and is sure on his decision to be baptized this week. For me, it was a miracle. God really does answer prayers when we have faith.
This week, we plan to have a baptism during the week for Rodrigo and with Veronica on Saturday. I have faith that these baptisms will for sure take place this week. We are doing all that is possible as well to help our new investigators progress so that we can be ready for the month of April to reach our goals. AND I'M GOING TO CUT THIS LETTER SHORT....because Hermana Crowley is here...I will send you pics next week! Love you all so much! Have a great week!
