Mas Bautizmals! January 25, 2016

Hello Everyone! Wow this week flew by in all that we did! We actually had hardly any time to teach because we were in and out of mission meetings this whole week trying to get things done for the areas. At the first of the week on Tuesday we finally had the baptism for Floricely! After 5 months she was finally baptized and I have never seen her happier than she was when she came up out of the water. You could tell that she finally had a testimony of the importance of all of these things and that she wanted all of this for herself. It took a lot of effort on the part of the Young Womens leader, without her Floricely would have never been baptized, but because of her Floricely found her testimony. On Wednesday we had a worldwide missionary training by the Apostles about how we can help people to find their testimonies. It was so great to be able to hear from the apostles once again and the powerful testimony that they are always carrying with them. Friday and Saturday were really busy days. The mission put on a program here in the 2 areas in Juchitan called El Cristo Es. We were able to have 80 missionaries that sang in a choir, sang in groups, and talked about all the things that we are teaching. I had the assignment to sing in 2 small groups the songs I know that My Redeemer Lives and This is the Christ. In both of them I could see people crying. I dont know if it was because they could feel the spirit or if it was because I was singing. Just kidding the spirit was so strong in these meetings and everyone left the meetings with a stronger testimony, us included that Jesus Really is the Christ and that he lives and that everything is centered in him! Everything that we have here in this life! Yesterday we had a weird experience in the Ward Council. We were sitting in the meeting and the Elders Quorum president came in late. He interrupted everything and started talking to us. He started to say that 2 girls that have been coming to church with their families arent baptized and they were too afraid to tell anyone about it. For 3 months we have had 2 girls in church that we had no clue werent baptized! We went and found them after and they are going to recieve the lessons and prepare for their baptisms soon! We are so excited and we are recieving so many miracles of the Lord. It is to a point now where i will do anything in this work for him because I know that he is always looking out for us and we are here to succeed gloriously! I cant wait to hear from you all next week! Elder Peterson
