¡Buenas tardes a todos!
Glad to hear from everyone, and hope you are holding up against the rain. The rain storms have been strengthening gradually, but it sounds like Utah has received more of a bashing. This Saturday, we had another baptism, and a rainstorm came in about an hour before the baptism was scheduled to start. A few of us got a little soaked from that, but the experience of the baptism made it worth it.
So here we are yet again to transfers. Wow, time continues to fly. We received the call today that my companion is going to be transferred and so we need to be in the temple tomorrow at 11am. I will be able to pick my package up then. I will be staying here and will have the wonderful opportunity to introduce my new companion to the hills of Tupetlac! What fun! (hehehe – maniacal background music here) I am excited to see what my new companion and I can do here in this area.
OK, a little bit more about the baptism that we had this week. The person we baptized is a young woman named Araceli. Her family was baptized three or so years ago, but at that time, she did not want to be baptized. I guess it just wasn’t her time until now. Araceli asked the Bishop to baptize her, and quite a few members of the ward were at the baptism to show their support and congratulate her on this important step.
Well, unfortunately I am out of time. I know that our Savior lives. He watches over us and is at the head of His church. This is not the work of men. It is a divinely directed labor that will continue until he calls it to an end. The Book of Mormon is true, and we are witnesses of its divinity. In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
