July 28, 2014

yeah, so Esther has literally been SOOOO prepared by the lord, and was supposed to be bpatized a month ago, but she was amazingly pregnant, then she had her baby and had to wait 2 weeks after she had it to be baptized. she was super sad to have to wait, and she had even had her baptismal interview a month ago, so she had to re-do it, but she was still ready as ever, and she was super super excited! she asked me to do the baptism, so that was cool, elder Jenness came into the ocean with us so he could be one of the witnesses and actually hear that i was saying it right! Turns out Esther is afraid of the water and we got about waist deep and she had a mild panic attack so i stopped her, we said a quick prayer together, and kept going. we didnt go as deep as i would have liked, i was worried i wouldnt be able to get her all the way under, but she couldnt go any further, and so i said "itll have to do!" and right as i went to dunk her a big wave came so i didnt have to go as low as i should have, nd it went perfectly! definitly a little miracle, i dont know what she would have done if she had to be dunked twice. God loves his children! the talks at the baptism were amazing, and the spirit was so strong! Marco couldnt make it, but he was there at church for the confirmation, and even though it was in english im sure he still understood the spirit testifying. so cool. Marco is still super legit, hes been listening to us, and talking to his girlfriend about us, usually when we teach a "big" commandment he laughs or acts like he cant do it, then the next time we go he like talks to us about how good hes been doing with it, like for the law of chastity, his girlfriend isnt living with him, but he was planning on her moving in in a couple months, but i explained that after his baptism that would be willingly and knowingly committing a sin, and that it was worse than before, and he said "well thats how its gotta be" and i was like "we cant baptize you if youre planning on sinning... just tell her that if shes serious about you she will live on her own for hte next 5 months till you can get married" nad he laughed, i decided we would just re-visit the commandment again later, wasnt worth arguing about it... then the enxt time we went he was like "i talked to my girlfriend about not moving in and yeah..." and he goes on and on about how great obeying commandments is. hes super cool, but hes still goig through a really hard time right now, so kep him in your praers! also we found a new investigator! dont know how legit he is yet, we taught him a little and asked if we could teach him more, and he aid, yeah not today, but like, tomorrow? or this afternoon... so yeah we set up a lesson with him for tuesday, so well find out! his name is cerge, so yeah, itd be cool if you prayed for him too! i love all of you so very much! keep being lovely, <3
