This week was sublime.
We picked up three new investigators and set 2 baptismal dates with Idalice and Isaiah Sanchez!
So, was a REALLY special day! Our investigator, Edward (who is getting baptized !!!), came out with us and helped us teach one of our investigators, Luz, and her grandkids, Idalice and Isaiah. Their mother was recently killed in a drive-by shooting (Boston is suuuuuuper sketchy sometimes), so they really need the Gospel right now!
Edward helped us teach them about The Plan of Salvation and he bore such a strong and powerful testimony. He kept mentioning his baptism on the 30th and how excited he is to become a member of the church. Luz looked at him after his testimony and said, "Puedo sentir el Espiritu. Jesucristo esta con nosotros y yo se que esta iglesia es verdadera." Which meant that she could feel the Spirit and that she knew this church is true. We set a baptismal date with Idalice and Isaiah for Spetember 27th! When we left the appointment, Edward was BEAMING. He talked about how happy doing missionary work is and how he wants to serve a mission now too!
I cannot describe the happiness you feel when helping someone come unto Christ. It's absolute bliss and all I could do was smile and laugh because not only is Edward being baptized, but he is being CONVERTED to the Gospel, and that makes all the difference.
This week we have zone conference and all of the Sister Training Leaders and Zone Leaders have been asked to do trainings there. We get to work with some of the other STL's/ZL's in the mission to put on the training and I'm pumped!
Well, things are just SWELL. I love being a missionary, and especially in this mission. This place is so sacred to me. I hope you all are doing well! I will talk to you soon.
