Today was fun because it was dia de preparación and Halloween! Our P-day lasted until 4 today, we proselyted from 4-7, and now we are in our apartments.
This was a crazy week! We taught 23 lessons! (Which is a lot for us!) This week we saw a miracle with a new investigator, Carol. We found her knocking last week and taught her the Restoration on Monday. She loved it! When we came back she had read 1 Nephi 1 six times! So, we set a date with her to be baptized December 3rd! She is super excited to get baptized! We are working with lots of other awesome people right now too!
We were also able to set a baptismal date with our investigator, Natividad! She came to church this week with her kids and they loved it!
In 1 Corinthians 15:29 we read about what Christ's original church did for these people.
They were performing baptisms for the dead. Christ's church has been restored on the Earth today, and the temple is where these baptisms are performed. In the temple we can be baptized in place of our ancestors that did not get the chance to learn about Christ. They then can accept or reject the baptism after they learn about Him. I am so grateful for the knowledge that those who have passed on without ever hearing about Jesus Christ can learn about Him and accept Him.
I hope you all have a great week and a fun Halloween!
