Week 11- WOW! Really?!
This last week, we have an investigator named Jose Camillo, and we placed a
Date of baptism!(Baptismal Date, Dallin's mind is thinking in Spanish. Yea!!) He is really happy and is very excited.
This week also, during Church, our investigator(also the first investigator I contacted here) asked us after Sacrament Meeting "What can I do to be baptized?" He then told us that he has felt the spirit and knows what we have taught him and what he has read is true and the Book of Mormon is the word of God. He says that he will do anything to be baptized. I was just like, Wow!! Really?! I'm so excited to help him and his wife progress. She wants to read more of the Book of Mormon but she told us she wants to be baptized as well.
Wish us luck!
P.S. So my email from a few days ago, I totally messed up. We are looking
for a sister to cook for us and the mission pays her to do it. Just one sister. So I really don't know haha. (In many missions these sisters are called Pensionistas. This should help to make sure that the missionaries have a well balanced diet.)
Hoping for the best,
Letter to home
When I read that Bishop was moving, I had a jump scare! gosh darn it! (Our Bishop moved to a house a street away from his prior home. He made everyone think he was leaving the ward.)
Well, the reason for the Christmas tree being put up is because Elder Prieto and Elder Zuniga are likely being transferred in a week, so they wanted to put it up because this has been their home for so long. haha.
And the cake... well, we had a part member family we were going to go visit because it was their daughter's b'day, but they weren't there, so we bought a cake for nothingggg. but um.... it was very very VERY good. haha. The cake here is very different, I don't know if I like it yet or not.
So guess what, WE GOT A BAPTISM THIS WEEK! Jose Camillo, the missionaries have been working with him for more than 2 transfers now, and he is ready! So we get the privilege to see him be baptized.
Also, Armando told us he wanted to be baptized! He said he knows this church is true because of the spirit he has felt. He even said he would get everything ready to get married, such as marriage papers and all that stuff, it's going to be a few good 3 to 4 weeks before we can actually get him baptized, but we are so excited!!! Like you said in your letter this week, He has felt the spirit and wants to become of the fold of the good Shepherd.
Thanks for singing in Spanish! It means a lot. haha.(I told Dallin I was singing the Hymns every Sunday in Spanish just for him.)
Love you mom and dad, we are finally starting to see the fruits of our labor.
