THIS WEEK WAS AWESOME!!! WE HAD SOOO MUCH FUN! BUT IT WAS MOSTLY AWESOME BECAUSE....YAY! KARL GOT BAPTIZED!! (I'm still not sure if you spell baptism with a z or s... sorry about that haha.) We are sooo happy for him!!! We are so blessed to have met him and taught him! It was all thanks to Elder Arrieta who found and baptized him! We are so lucky we got to teach him! Karl and Tito Renante shared their testimonies at Karls baptism and the spirit was sooo strong! It is so much fun to be able to teach friends!
The rest of the week has been good too! We are still trying to figure out the area... we had a district blitz on Saturday and miracle! We found 2 solid new investigators one of which is Michelle, she is from..... guess.... The Philippines!!! She let us in immediately and we started talking about her family! She kept saying "I feel so blessed you came to my house!" She is so much fun she has 3 children but they are all in the Philippines still studying she misses them a lot! We talked about eternal families and she loved it! We can't wait to go back!
I love you all I'm so grateful for this opportunity to serve a mission! I know that as we truly try to understand for ourselves that we are children of God that is what changes everything! This work is about Love! God loves all of us! He wants us to be happy! What is better than that! I hope you all have a wonderful week! Remember that you are children of God!
Love, Sister Penrod xxx
