When September Ends...
What a beautiful Pday. I have the same problem as Cameron, "I do so much all week, but forget everything when it comes to sit down and tell all." I've done so much this week... I can only remember that today is Pday. The mission just does this to you. I cant even remember what day of the week it is anymore. I just read plans, teach people, sleep, repeat. I guess that's the sad part of the mission, but the good part is that I really have lost myself in the work. :) Like really, I'm lost........... lol.
This week was the baptism of Michel de la Cruz. I feel like I've waited all my mission just to baptize him. He's not only the coolest chillest investigator, but my bffy! I decided to buy him a pizza after his baptism I love him so much! :D It wasn't even a real pizza because the pepperoni was some weird ham chunks and the cheese was goat cheese or something. But it was the occasion that counts :) He had really been looking for a chance to change his life and leave his past behind. He just wants to live a chill life with his family and friends in the church and nothing else. And now that's what he has. =) The moment when he came out of the water he had the biggest spiritual smile on his face and gave me a big fat hug. Ill never forget that.
I know that the work I'm called to do is true. 2 years preaching about Jesus, people would think you're crazy. Sometimes I am. But I know that Christ lives. This is His Church and His gospel, and is the only way families can live together forever. It is a blessing from a loving Heavenly Father. And anyone can have it, if they just take the time to look for it.
