December 7th: Weeks and Weeks Since I Wrote a Letter

Well it has been a really long time since I have written a letter, the reason was for school and because I needed to do some essays "puff, I hate essays" but as I was brainstorming my mind for essays all I could think of was how much I love my heavenly father, I am so blessed, the word "humble" means so much more to me as a missionary. The power of Christ has lifted me up and has blessed me with the warmth of the Holy Ghost. This past week we where pleased to see and baptize Daniel and Jorge Santos! Man it was so incredible! And to top it off it was after a stake conference and our mission president was there! So that was cool! Also the Fernandez family will be baptized this Saturday! And we have had and seen many more miracles again in the week! We have had seriously people walk up and ask us to be taught! Woooooooooow!

So the baptism was so amazing, I have not seen a baptism with so many people present before! There were a good hundred people and I’m sure that Daniel and Jorge felt welcome! The best part was when President showed up and stayed all throughout conference and even the baptism! He shook their hands then shared the most humble and sweet testimony that I have not even heard; he shared about his first baptism and how it was with his grandpa. I love my mission president! To be honest I have loved both of my presidents in the mission, one has taught me the most obedience and why and then love, its amazing, I’m striving to find this balance in my life which will help me become a better leader, the way to do it is for an example. When we are constantly striving to do our best then we will receive the blessings. So I baptized Jorge, he was so hard to teach but it was so great to see him in white, that kid though has some serious concentration problems! And Daniel was giddy as he entered the water and when he left I saw a huge smile emerge from the water! What a great sight to see!

I also got the chance to go to a conference with all the leaders of the missions, how crazy it is to see 8 of my ex companions there! It likes a great friend reunion, but hey I have had the best companions ever! So every month I get to go and say hi to them! So that was really cool. President Diaz taught us about the importance of becoming one with the Savior and working on obtaining more attributes of Christ.

The Fernandez family is doing really well! They will get baptized this Saturday and they passed the interview last night! Woooow!
