WIlson's baptism

Hola Familia!

Wow the weeks are flying by! So last Tuesday we met with Wilson and his family. Wilson told us that he wanted to be baptized this Friday, so we were happy with that! On Wednesday we made invitations and Wilson had his baptism interview.

Thursday in the morning Elder Guzman and I left Elder Sanchez and Elder Abreu at home, as we traveled to Santa Ana Huista to do divisions. Elder Guzman went with the elders in Santa Ana and I went with the elders in San Antonio, which is the farthest area in the mission. It was super cool. Their chapel doesn't have a baptismal font, so we spent most of the day searching for a river to baptize in!

On Friday we traveled back to Huehue and stopped halfway in Colotenango to do a baptism interview for some of the elders there. We then made it back just in time for Wilson's baptism. It was a very special baptism, for 2 reasons: Number 1, Wilson worked hard to receive a testimony. He is now in 3rd Nephi. I know that he will be a faithful member. Number 2, by baptizing Wilson we helped complete an eternal family. :) Now they have a goal to get sealed as a family in one year! I sure hope I will be able to attend that special day with them.

On Sunday we were able to bring Jorge and Maria to church. Jorge received an answer through a dream that this is the true church and he is working hard to leave behind his old traditions to be a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints!

Well one week down.......2 more to go! Think of all the good my companion and I can do in 2 weeks!
