Monday, October 13, 2014

During the last couple of weeks we have been looking for new investigators. Because after this next week we are going to be runnin with nothin. But it's hard when contacts aren't a very good way to find new investigators and most of the members just tell us that they know absolutely no one because they "never leave their house" but yeah... That's where we be at right now.

But for this time around I only have one thing to write about... it's about the girl that got baptized this last Saturday.  I would just like to explain a few things about this girl. So for the last few weeks we have been teaching her and her family (her mother could not get baptized because she needs to get divorced and married)  and they have been loving every bit of the evangelio that they have heard. And when it came down to the last week and we were talking to this girl and asking her about how she felt about being baptized she told us that she didn't want to get baptized.... And that was really interesting to me and kinda shocked me. Because she has loved every moment and everything that she has  learned. So I began by asking her some questions to see if she knew some of the commandments that we had taught and she answered all of them perfectly. With that she finally got to the reason why she didn't want to get baptized. She ended up telling us that something horrible happened when she was a little girl and now she is absolutely terrified of ...........water! So when she told us that we assured her that my comp is a very strong man and that she does not have to fear. That her baptism will be done quickly. And with that and a bit more talking we saqued out another cita for her interview. And now jumping to the day of the baptism (we still don't have any gas for the pila bautismal and so we are still dunking people in ice cold water) it came time for her and my comp to do the ordinance, she kinda flipped out a bit. But we got her in the water and my comp said the prayer and he told me when he said amen the girl tensed up and didn't want to go under. But my comp just gave her a helping umph and she went under with ease. With that they left and the girl, a bit emotional, but quite happy  to have been baptized and having faced her deepest fear.  And some members came to this baptism!!! That was pretty cool. Because usually we have very little help from the members.  But... Maybe this is a start to a change that is going to happen. 

but it was a good week and there sure are a whole lot more weeks to come.
