Surprise we had a baptism this week! On Saturday Adaiza was baptize. It was really great. The baptismal font was really dirty before we cleaned it, It has been 9 months since this ward has had baptism. There were a lot of people that went to the baptism and brought a lot of food. It was an amazing event to get her excited and feel welcomed. Adaiza was literally an elect. she found out about the church through the English Class. She was at the English class and after asked to see a tour of the church and we answered a lot of here questions. The same day she wanted to be baptized. Since we have to make sure that they really want to be baptized they have to wait 2 weeks. She went to all of the activities and family nights we marked. She was clearly prepare by the Lord. She was asking when she was going to get a calling, what people she could visit, and even gave the idea to do contact at the town park! I love the way the Lord works. Although we don't have the time work a lot in our area, the Lord understands the desires of our hearts. I was so grateful to be present in this miracle. And without a doubt she will be a leader and will help a lot of people.
This week a Gizele and Daniel will be baptized as well. They were also references from the English class.(this is a gold mine) Gizele was a rock strong member of the church Congregation Cristã do Brasil. She was a missionary/ leader. when we explained the Book of Mormon and the Priesthood power. we invited her to read and pray about the things that we said. That Sunday she received her answer from that Holy Ghost in sacrament meeting. That night we visited her and marked a date with her and her son Daniel. We are really excited. She has a really strong spirit and it will help her family so much. The blessings the Lord promises us are unbelievable.
I am working hard, learning so much. Hannah you are going to love the mission.
