|Elvie and Mae's baptism! Brother Jolan got to baptize them(:|
Our baptisms this week! Elvie and Mae Sierra(: Wife and daughter of brother Roldan who got baptized October 18. Elvie was a golden investigator. She was so prepared and ready to receive this gospel!! Mae has been a little bit tougher, missionaries started teaching her in July but shes just never been interested and said she was always too busy, until we taught eternal families! She cried and cried and then everything changed for her she took out her earrings and stopped drinking coffee the next day! Oh I love that family. Jimmy and Arlene(: mom and dad of Sister Jemma Rose that got baptized on October 18 too. I really wanted them to be baptized as a family but I saw over these past few weeks that it was better for Jemma to get baptized first. Brother Jimmy's testimony grew so much from it! Sister Arlene is golden too, the first time she went to church they taught about tithing and when we went to visit her the next day she asked if she could pay her tithing! The baptism was so stressful.

My faith has really been tested this week. I wondered if I could really do this. I doubted myself and my decision. "Now when our hearts were depressed and we were about to turn back behold the Lord comforted us, bear with patience thine afflictions and I will give unto you success." Alma 26:27, I read this in my personal study on a day where I was questioning a lot of stuff and I was instantly comforted. If faith isn't tested it will not grow. I'm so thankful for my relationship with my Heavenly Father and that I can feel His love everyday. I'm so grateful for this time to serve Him!! I love being a missionary!!
|Me and my batch mates! We're all in the same zone(:|
