Week 32: Wet white pants (again!) October 27, 2014

True, we had another baptism this week, this time for a young man named Miguel! Hes a really cool kid. His best friends are members, and hes been attending for a few months now. He was way pumped to finally be making the step of baptism, and we were way excited to help him do it! He asked me to baptise him, and i was honored, and Elder Anderson was able to confirm him, which was awesome! The service was great, we had a whole zone service, in that the 12 companionships in our zone planned it all, unfortunately some of the people a lot of the other companionships had beenTrue, we had another baptism this week, this time for a young man named Miguel!

Other than that, not a whole lot happened this week. Elder Anderson went to Lima for two days for his paper work, and so i was with the zone leaders in the center of Trujillo. It was great, i learned a lot and had a really good time being with those great missionaries. Last monday we ate at McDonalds, it was really tasty, and doesnt happen very often haha. Then we played some ping pong and soccer as a zone, fun stuff. With the zone leaders, we had some powerful lesson with a few of the people they are teaching, we were able to testify with power that Jesus Christ is our savior, and that through Him we can have everything, it was awesome! We aslo had a lesson where this sister completely opened up to us. The spirit was working with here so hard ot kedep her feeling the love we had, and that the savior has for her. It was an honor for me to be there, and to feel the intensity of the Spirit like that, loved it!
As a companionship, Elder Anderson and i are learning a lot about how powerful the Book Of Mormon is in our teaching. We taught a less active young man, and at the beginning he wasnt focused, not really listening, just like a 17 year old usually is, but as we all three read about Alma the Younger and his conversion story in Alma 36, it really caught his attention and he began to feel it and get really interested, it was awesome!
Anyway, not a whole lot mopre for this week. Weve got a great week coming up and we are pumped to be here! I love my Heavenly Father, and His son Jesus Christ, my older brother and Savior. I love being a missionary, i love the Book of Mormon, you all should read it!
Sorry guys i got lots of photos to send you, but it doesnt work today…
