B is for Baptism

Have you heard the news?? Well probably not because I have told you yet. But we will be having a baptism this week on Thursday! 

Oh, Hello, by the way. Forgot to say that.

So you may remember, but maybe not, that I mentioned an investigator who was not allowed to get baptized because his mother said no. Well we started teaching one of his good friends that he actually rooms with now. His friend's name is Martin. After a few weeks of teaching and coming to church he is preparing to be baptized on Thursday and become an official member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints! 

Martin is such a humble guy. He is eighteen and is a tad shy, but has seen that he has opened up as we have been teaching him. His family is from Mexico and he speaks both English and Spanish... But mostly English. He has no problem with any of the commandments and standards that we have taught and has already told his mom he cannot drink coffee anymore. Haha, I just love this guy.

Of course, opposition is real until the day we die so there is always something that might come up. So please pray that the baptism can go smoothly and that the Spirit can really be strong there for everyone. 

There is nothing else to report other than that it is raining. Like always. 

My love for all of you burns like the white-hot intensity of a thousand suns. So always remember that! Hasta luego mis compadres!
