Beautiful Baptisms...

 I love to post at least a couple of the baptisms that we get to 
during the week.
This one is special to me because 
Elder Barinas and Elder Márquez
who work in the office with us had two this week.

These Elders work long hours all day in the office and then go out at night
and teach the Gospel.
Thank you Elders for your hard work and dedication.

We went to this baptism below and were surprised to see Elder Tabaco there.
He went home several weeks ago 
and then returned to the city of Trujillo and started school and work.
He baptized one of these women below that he had 
been teaching before he left.

These were special baptisms too.
Their testimonies were so sweet.
The young mother had a little daughter that passed away as a toddler.
Her husband is a member but has been less active.
Now their goal is to have their family sealed together in the temple.

The other woman has been through many sets of missionaries.
She said that she has been stubborn
but is so thankful that the missionaries kept praying for her 
and kept teaching her.
She is so happy.

Congratulations to the missionaries and the new members.
