So for this week.
Not much happened so I will just tell you something
really awesome that happened today instead of a week blog of boring.
I told you about Elder Atoiguiy's mom (yup... still don't know how to
spell that). But today was the day of her baptism. We started out the
day going to the temple and then afterwards we were able to go to her
baptism. Just being there for it you could already feel the spirit so
strong, and I don't know, I guess I haven't been to a baptism in a really
long time, and I definitely haven't been to the baptism of someone older
than 8, but it was so powerful to be able to watch him baptise her.
Our entire zone got to go and we piled into the room.
I felt like a
little kid as I knelt down right by the glass to watch, and I felt the
spirit stronger than I have ever felt it before. I am so happy and
grateful that his mom was able to share this moment with all of us.
After the baptism we had bearing of testimonies, and Elder Antoiguiy got
up to bear his testimony. It was really awesome, because his dad has
not yet made the decision to join the church, and when this Elder got up
to bear his testimony, he basically just pleaded with his father to
listen to the message and pray to know that it is true. They have both
seen so many blessings come into their lives because of the decision
that they made to join the church.
The missionaries have been teaching this family for over two years, and
the origional missionary that came to teach them was able to come to
the baptism, and also their current two misssionary's parents were able
to come. I know that the spirit of the Lord is true and that it blesses
people, and I know that no matter what choices that they have made in
their lives, that the only one that matters is the decision to come unto
Christ and always have his spirit to be with them. whether it is thier
first time making that decision, or their fifth, it is still the most
important one that you can ever make.
