Putting Ignacio in the Water - Week 92

This week was wonderful.  We are working our best and seeing many miracles right now.  There were some trials with the people that are to be baptized, but they will be alright.  Ignacio made it!!  I felt so honored to be the one to baptize him and really it made me think there is never a sad or homesick missionary who is in the baptismal font.  I can definitely say that is true!!  I have never felt happier than when I can see someone with whom we have worked so hard step into a freshly cleaned font, usually with very cold water;) to change their lives forever.  Being a missionary is so beautiful,  I loved the way that Elder Holland said it in one of his talks.  He said Every missionary that ever stood in a baptismal font and said, having been commissioned of Jesus Christ... That commission was to have changed your convert forever, but it was certainly supposed to have changed YOU, the missionary, forever as well.

Ignacio was baptized!

 He is 16 and was going through some tough stuff,
but decided to follow the Savior anyway!! 

Us with Elder Keller and Hansen!!  Great day!
