Só vai, só batize! The adversary wants to block every baptism possible. The Lord promised to prepare people in our path. My testimony of obedience has also increased a lot. Our zone goal is 40 baptisms, a goal our LZ´s prayed about. God prepared at LEAST 40 people. Whether or not we will baptize these people is on us and our willingness to do it the Lord´s way. And it´s always the little things, like studying dressed in the full missionary standard, or always speaking the language. And obedience always leads to charity. If you want to have charity for someone, serve them. Anything but exact obediece shows that you care more about yourself than that person and you will not develop charity.
It´s just insane how much happens in a week. I almost forgot about the dream I had at the beginning of the week. I had a dream that a whole bunch of Sisters were sent home just because we weren´t helping the mission enough. It was a very long, real dream and I remember everything from the plane ride home to arriving at our house. I realized I hadn´t accomplished yet what I was here to do, not even close. I woke up in tears and since then I haven´t even had the slightest inkling of a desire to be back home. Not that I don´t love you guys or look forward to seeing you again, but I have reached the point where I just wish it would all slow down. My heart is here.
I really want to thank you, my family, for so many things. You guys are awesome, you guys are batizadores. d I´m just so grateful for the family I have. Mom, you are the best missionary mom who ever lived. You did your part and sent 6 children on missions, and you continue to support the missionaries in the ward and your own kids in the best way you can. Dad, this country is a part of me now like it is for you, and I´m so glad we have that. If you have music you want to send me, you can scan it and email it. You guys were right about pretty much everything you taught me growing up. Except I still should´ve have a horse ;) Joking, kind of..
Pray for this mission, pray for the Fort Collins Mission, the Macon Georgia Mission, pray that the missionaries are kept from temptation. Pray for the people I mentioned above and also Antonio, Rafael, and Paulo who will also hopefully be baptized in the next two weeks. Pray for Jaqueline. She is being an example to the whole ward. We do not have enough time in this life to not show our love for other people. She hasn´t moved yet and I don´t know when she will. I forgot to tell Dad that she got really emotional when he sang that song. That was really cool for me that you got to talk to her.
Te amo demais!
