Date Set for Baptism

A view from our apartment

It's been a great week in Huandoy. The week flew by so fast! We've been working a lot with members and I really like it a lot. In just a couple weeks we've gotten to know a LOT of members and we've received a lot of references. Sometimes it's hard to keep up with all of them haha.

This week we found a new investigator that is awesome. His mom is a member, and last Sunday she told us in church she'd like us to do a family home evening sometime in her home, and of course we accepted. Her 35 year old son was interested in getting to know more about us as missionaries, and it turned out that he spoke a little English too, so that was cool. During the lesson, I felt like we were on fire, my companion and I were using scriptures, sharing our testimonies, asking inspired questions, the whole deal. We asked him if he wanted to get baptized, and he took a long pause. I thought, oh no is he going to say no..but he took a breath and said he hasn't been very involved in religion his whole life, but recently he's been studying the Bible frequently, and he knows he needs to get baptized and has been waiting for the right opportunity to present itself. He accepted a baptismal date for March 4th.

Well, have an AWESOME week!!!
