Lizbeth got baptized Saturday!!! YAHOO!!! =) It was so perfect!! She is so happy. The best part..besides the actual baptism, was afterwards when she bore her testimony. It was short and sweet. She was so nervous to talk in front of everyone. But she did great! She said that it was the best decision she had made and that she felt 100% clean! SHe is so great!
Anywho. That was the hightlight of the entire week! We are working hard and enjoying every minute. Today is week 6. Transfers are coming up this sunday. I feel like I just got here in Hidalgo.
SO real quick I wanted to share a little of what I was studying in the Book of Mormon in 3 Nephi. After Samuel had profesied of the birth of Christ many people didnt believe him, but there were still a bunch that did. They were filled with the hope of a Savior who would come to the earth. The signs never came though..they waited and waited and nothing and started to loose their faith. Nephi saw that they were losing their faith and so he prayed to the Lord to know what to do, because he too was waiting for these signs. The Lord tells him in 3 nephi 1:13-14 that the signs are coming and that he will do his part. That got their hopes up again and just as youd guess the signs came! They just needed to be more patient. A few verses later in this same chapter it says that Satan tried tricking the people again into losing their faith. but I love that it say in verse 22 that they didnt listen to the lies of Satan. They believed and were converted to the Lord. Every day of our lives we need to believe and REconvert ourselves to the Lord. I was reminded of a quote that you gave me mom, by Elder Uchtdorf. “Doubt your doubts before you doubt your faith”
Stay strong in the faith. The Lord loves each and every one of us! Hold fast in patience and the things we are waiting for will come!
I love you all so so much! To the moon and back!
