This week is special indeed! I would like to wish a very happy birthday to Megan Wiberg! Love you sis!!!!
This week started out wonderfully with 2 baptisms on Sat-Sunday! We baptised a young boy and a wife of a member here in Russas-CE. :) It went very well. :) We have 1 more baptism for sure this week. God is blessing our area. :)
With Jayne (The woman who was baptized) we had a special/spiritual experience. We had seen her in church before but never talked to her. This last week we asked her about her life and she said she wasn't a Mormon. We invited her to be baptized on the spot. She said she would think about it. We stayed with her helping with her problems. In the end she had ,in just a week and a half, grown to be a very strong young woman with a testimony of the Book of Mormon and the church. We are very proud of her and her courage. :) She was baptized , with her whole family watching. Saturday at 8:00 at night. :) It was a very special and beautiful time for her. Her sisters loved it and maybe they will come to church? :D
We had a great experience and a great baptism. :)
We worked very hard this last week and it payed off. :) For you Ace-Missionaries here was our numbers to let you know how Brazil is. This is here in the north of Brazil. This is a GOOD week. :)
