Dari got Baptized!

Hey family! It was such a great week...We had another baptism! Dari got baptized on Saturday. She is so happy! She has been so excited about getting baptized.  I know she's going to be a solid member. She told us that's she's already indexing names in the family history center. She's also already really involved with the young women. 

Last P-day we made tacos with Elder Walker and Elder Ryan. Then we were able to play basketball with some members.  

Tuesday we had divisions.....I went with Elder Vichemez and we visited some really cool people who live up on the mountain. 

Wednesday Elder Burt and I started contacting doors on a little street. We found a kid named Miguel.  He is 19 years old and is studying engineering.  He let us into his house and we were able to introduce the BOM and he was really excited! We were able to come back the next day and Miguel gave us a complete run down of the intro, testimonies, and first chapters of Nephi.....so cool! He is really interested in the church. We are going to see him again in about 3 weeks. Then some guy named Carlos contacted us and told us he was taking the missionary discussions and is living in Huanuco and wants us to come over and teach him.  After a tough week last week I feel like this week we made up for it.  

I look back and see how much I have grown up by being courageous and opening my mouth. Sunday night at 7:30 P.M. we needed 30 more contacts.  We passed by a funeral place and we saw a viewing starting.  So as we were running back to our place I was telling Elder Burt how we were going to get 30 contacts in 30 minutes. So we grabbed a stack of pamphlets and hurried back to the viewing. We just started talking to everyone on how our Heavenly Father has a plan for us! I did talk to a girl who was really interested so I'm going to pass her info on to the missionaries in Cerro. It was so cool to see 2 white kids in white shirts going and talking to complete strangers about the Plan of Salvation. I never thought I would do this. I was able to talk to several people who were from Pasco and tell them to visit the church. I also told them that there is always hope after this life! I love opening my mouth even thought it's frightening sometimes.  But I know the spirit is there to support us if we do our part.  

Reflection of the week:  I was able to fast this last Saturday and bring myself closer to our Savior.  The more I fast, work, pray, read and teach I become happier and happier. At the baptism I was looking at a picture of Jesus Christ and I just had this overwhelming feeling come over me so strongly.  It was the coolest thing......I just wanted to sit there and just give so much thanks to Heavenly Father and his son, Jesus Christ. I am so grateful for my mission and what it has taught me.  I love you all so much!  #doitforjesus
