What up people!

Not your normal Mexican fare!
Solved it!

We  baptized this week! A recent convert (who was baptized about a month ago), who LOVES to do visits with us and plans on going on a mission, AND has even visited our investigators on his own time to help them feel the goodness of the gospel, Just Baptized his own mother. It was SO cool to see a faithful son of God baptize his mother into the one true gospel. That was obviously the highlight of this week.

Esperanza baptized by her son, Jorge

Other than that, we have found a few investigators who are really progressing well and have baptismal dates set for later this month. My comp and I also found a lady in the street who has been to Sacrament Meeting about 4 times, her kids even more, has a strong testimony, and is totally ready to be baptized! Hopefully we can baptize her this week and help her family work towards finding the true joy of the Gospel.

District Meeting
 There are people prepared for baptism everywhere we go. It just takes some effort to find them. This gospel is meant for everyone. And those with open hearts and contrite spirits and humility will see that and see that there is a light in this church that is brighter than any light we can think of. It is the Light of Christ. And that light is in every one of us as we do what's right and follow the teachings of Christ and the promptings of the Spirit. Which leads me to my Scripture of the week:

3 Nephi 18:20-21 - "And Whatsoever ye shall ask the father in my name, which is right, believing that ye shall recieve, behold it shall be given unto you. Pray in your families unto the father, always in my name, that your wives and your children may be blessed."

All sorts of promises in there. And we simply need to pray to our Father in Heaven with total sincerity. We will find joy. We will find happiness. We will be blessed. Our families will be blessed.
God is literally our Father. It is absolutely crazy to think about that. It's almost incomprehensible. But it's true. And he listens to us, just like our fathers here on Earth do. And he loves us like our fathers here on earth do. And he has a wife who equally loves us and listens to us and wants the best for us. Remember what you're doing when you pray and you will find peace. :)
