En aquel tiempo se acercaron los discípulos a Jesús, diciendo: ¿Quién es el mayor en el reino de los cielos? Y llamando Jesús a un niño, lo puso en medio de ellos,y dijo: De cierto os digo que si no os volvéis y os hacéis como niños, no entraréis en el reino de los cielos.Así que, cualquiera que se humille como este niño, ese es el mayor en el reino de los cielos.Y cualquiera que reciba en mi nombre a un niño como este, a mí me recibe. Mateo 18:1-5
So, A lot has happened in this past week. We have been working with the kids and this week, 7 of them decided to get baptized. Herson, Henry, Josi, Astrid, Nahomi, Adan, and Luis. Honestly, it was super crazy. We had to run around making sure that all of them were good to be baptized, have the interviews with them, and plan the baptism service. On top of all that, we have been having to work alongside Presidente Ferman with this project. Baptizing 7 kids without baptizing their parents normally doesnt fly, but these kids have a diferent circumstance. Presidente has called this project excepcional. Also we have had to work alongside the ward which really doesnt help much. much to our suprise, the ward was all willing to help us. Everything turned out miraculously. We help the baptism on thursday at 2 in the afternoon, the only time that all the kids could be together. We were honestly expecting no one to come and support the baptisms, but more than 50 people showed up. I have never in my mision seen so many people in a baptism service. Ill send a Pic. And then the baptisms were incredible. Honestly it has just been one giant miracle these kids. If you could only see the faces in person, and hear the voices and laughter of these kids, itd bring you to tears. Yeah, it was a good week.
But, the work goes on. We still have more projects to do. There are so many people to help here. We are going to keep going forward.
Also, This was my sunday dinner yesterday! Fried fish fried in a bat a lard. Almost fair quality hahaha Also a better picture of the baptisms to see the faces of the kids
Also, not to freak you out or anything, just something that freaks me out is... suposivly, everyone has been telling me that my release date will be the 7th of Febuary.... Tomorrow, i will only have 138 days left of my mision. Me and my companion leave the same day, so starting tomorrow, we are going to read together every day, one chapter in Doctrine and Covenants. When we finish the book, we finish the mision... I cant believe how fast this time has gone..
