This was a super awesome week for the missionaries here in Neiva. We broke some records as a zone this week finding 123 new investigators and setting 64 baptismal dates. What a blessing it is to be a Neivano today!
My comp and I were able to find 11 investigators and set 7 baptismal dates.
One awesome experience we had was that a less active member moved into our ward, and in his house we have 2 future baptisms for the 4th of February and a possible 3rd when the son of his girlfriend gets here to Neiva. So we’re super pumped about that! The father’s name is Mario and his son’s name is Angelo and he’s 9. Mario´s girlfriend, Juliana, has a daughter that is 8 years and her son’s going to be coming to Neiva and he’s 13. As for Juliana, she needs to get divorced from her old husband and then married to Mario before she gets baptized. So were going to be helping with that process! It might take some time but we’ll be here to help them out!
Also, Bibiana got BAPTIZED!! Woo hoo!! It was seriously such an awesome experience. She was so happy! We have some funny pictures of her baptism that I’m going to send with this.
Elder Centurión and I are doing great together. We were able to find many investigators and help them progress and get baptized. It’s not an easy thing to do at all. There are so many temptations, problems, things that they need resolve before baptism can occur. We are focused on helping people receive that restored gospel. We are loving it! I’m so happy here, on my mission. I’m seeing miracles every day. I’m seeing the joy the gospel brings to people. What an amazing time it is to be a missionary of Jesus Christ. I know this church is true. And there is no other way we can return to our Father in Heaven, but through His gospel.
Love you all! Have a fantastic week!
