-Just another week of miracles, including the BAPTISM of Melissa! She is 16 years old and was a miracle sent from above. She is the one who calls for us on the street, and wanted to be baptized as soon as possible. She has already decided that she wants to serve a mission, and is so determinted to change and be better than her past. Her baptism was increadible, and there was lost of people from the branch there to support her! Her mom isn´t a member, but ended up going to the baptism. Only issue was that her mom cried the whole time, infront of the chapel because she was upset that Melissa was getting baptized (they were catholic). Melissa looked her mom straight in the eyes and said" Would you rather me be baptized, to continue being the crazy person that I was? I am changing." This truly sunk into her moms heart, and let out a big smile and finally accepted the baptism.
-We take care of the Sisters in San Francisco de Paula and a few weeks ago there was a huge tornado there that destroyed 1,600 houses. Luckily only 1 person died. We went there to do some service work this week!
-Amanda and Akzã are preparing for their wedding and baptism April 7th.They asked lots of questions this week of how they could start preparing to serve a mission as a couple! Eleitos do Senhor!
-A quote that I found by Elder Uchtdorf: "Remember with the Saviors help, you can break free from whatever you are passing. It may be a long, difficult path, but the Lord will not give up on you. He loves you. Jesus Christ suffered the atonement to help you change, to fee you from the captivity of sin. The most important thing is to keep trying- sometimes it takes several attempts before people find success. So don´t give us. Don´t loose faith. Keep your heart close to the Lord, AND He will give you the power of deliverance. He will make you free."
I love this quote! I know that through the Lord, even the most difficult challegned can pass and we will become so much stronger. Success is just around the corner, so don´t give up!
