The Sun is Shining!

This was the most glorious week of my mission!!!
Want to know why? because the sun has been shinning so beautifully and our Family finally got baptized!!!!!!!!! :D Remember weeks ago when i talked about them? Well saturday was the day. It was pretty amazing. The mom, Leticia, her family came up from another state and some of them are members and all was well in the world. :)
Saturday morning we were so excited and went to the church to clean the font and helped a lady clean the floors and everything then we went about our day and around 4 we went to go fill the font up with water and there was no water in the church!! We had a panic attack and we were calling the bishop and everyone with the keyes to the water pumps. Meanwhile we got buckets and were filling them up with water from a well and the buckets were so heavy and we were laughing so hard and getting soaking wet! Luckly a little while after the bishop came and got the water working. The bapitsm went really well 6 of them got baptized :)
Miguel-the dad. Leticia-the mom. Lola-daughter. Michel-daughter. Diego-son. Yahir-hes not part of there family but he works with them and basically lives there.
The most special part of it was at the end Miguel said the prayer so heartfelt and beautifully. He was the one that wasnt so sure about the whole thing and thats why it took a while for them to get baptized. He was saying he wanted to wait a year and be really sure of it. In His prayer he got all teary and couldnt say much but he said "thank you from all my heart because i know that this is the right place and thank you for sending the sister missionaries." I started bawling!!! That was basically all he said and almost everyone was crying with tears of joy :) And when i gave Leticia a hug she told me that they were going to give thanks everyday for us. It made me feel really happy because it helped me realize that i really didnt do much. i know i didnt do much. But i know that im just an instrument in the hands of God and He works through His missionaries. And i am so grateful that he allowed me and blessed me to know this amazing family. I love them so much and tell them every week that i am going to do everything i can to be able to go to the temple with them in one year when they get sealed :)

I LOVE being a missionary and seeing how God blesses all of His children!

I love you all!
