Last Transfer & New Companion
The big news of the week is that last weekend we had a baptism! Yep, we baptized Edisson - he is a super cool kid - teenager!! My favorite part of his baptism was his testimony at the end, he said "Aunque sea miembro, lea el libro de mormón. Eso le ayuda mucho." Or in other words "Even if you are a member, read the Book of Mormon. That helps you a lot." It was so cool! He has changed so much! The best part is that he is now helping us teach another 15-year-old that also has a baptismal date coming up. So cool, cool.
This last week was also transfers and I am staying in the Bronx for my LAST 6 WEEKS (crazy weird to think about) and my new companion is Elder Baker from Mesa, AZ. This is super crazy! At the end of this transfer I will have spent 13 1/2 months with companions from Mesa, AZ! How random is that?! He is a great missionary and I'm grateful to be serving with him.
In closing, I just want to share a simple testimony. I know that God speaks to me through the scriptures. If I ever have a question, doubt, or concern, I just read and the answer is always there. I know that our Heavenly Father wants to communicate with all of his children. We just have to love him enough to let him.
I love you all! Have a great week.
