Week 56, Las Delicias, Rosario, Argentina

Baptism last saturday for Alejandra and Milagros

Alejandra is 23 years old and Milagros is 10

The lady on the left got baptized on Saturday in Santa Fe.
(She cried when I left. Mom and Dad we're going to visit them when you come pick me up!!!)


First off... Thank you everybody for the testimony book! That was so great. I loved reading all your testimonies and they really helped mine grow! GRACIAS!

So Alejandra and Milagros got baptized! WOOHOO! They had a great experience. The baptismal service went smooth after everyone showed up. Elder Haderlie baptized Alejandra and I baptized Milagros. The water was all nice and toasty, so it was nice. (I really miss going in the jacuzzi by the way. 11 months! Haha) After the baptism we went to their house and ate empanadas with them. They said they felt really great and super clean. On Sunday after they were confirmed Alejandra just started balling because she felt a huge burden lifted off of her shoulders. The ward is great and really supporting them in everything!

I was so happy to hear that the Perry family got baptized! HOW GREAT!! You guys need to do something for them! I cracked up when Dad told me that he got ahead of himself in sacrament meeting because he was so excited for them to get confirmed. haha I love baptisms!

This week was a really special week because on Thurs night Elder Smith called me and said that a lady that we were teaching in Santa Fe was getting baptized on Saturday too. I screamed and almost cried like a little girl. I really got to love them right before I left Santa Fe. They’re so awesome and I can’t wait to go back with you guys and see them. I already wrote them a letter. :) It was just a perfect Saturday to get baptized right? :)

Also this week we had Zone conference. We usually hear different workshops from the assistants and President but this time we were asked to give a workshop too! AHH! We were kind of nervous but it went really great. We spoke on the Book of Mormon in the conversion of a person. We talked about how the Book of Mormon is touchable proof that the true church has been restored. read + pray = answer. Simple concept, but a lot of times we forget the power that’s in the Book of Mormon. It’s the only thing we do! INVITE! I know that any person that WANTS to know, will come to know that the Book of Mormon is true, and not something made up by a man. I know that it was written thousands of years ago and brought forth right now to show to the world that God hasn’t changed and still talks to men through prophets. I know God loves us and has restored His truths. The invitation in the Book of Mormon says.

"We invite all men everywhere to read the Book of Mormon, to ponder in their hearts the message it contains, and then to ask God, the Eternal Father, in the name of Christ if the book is true. Those who pursue this course and ask in faith will gain a testimony of its truth and divinity by the power of the Holy Ghost. (See Moroni 10:3–5.)Those who gain this divine witness from the Holy Spirit will also come to know by the same power that Jesus Christ is the Savior of the world, that Joseph Smith is his revelator and prophet in these last days, and that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the Lord’s kingdom once again established on the earth, preparatory to the second coming of the Messiah."



P.S. Congrats Lexi on your mission call!!! That's soooo cool!!!
