José was baptized yesterday! It was such an amazing experience being able to teach him all the lessons, be the first missionaries to contact him, and see the change in his life! He was glowing after he was baptized and it was so cool! He's only 19 and we committed him to prepare this next year to be able to serve a mission, whether he decides to actually go or not. There's a lot of members in the branch who were baptized in their late teens and then went on missions so they're going to help encourage him to go. I'm so excited to be a missionary at this time.
We saw a lot of miracles this week! One we saw Saturday when a member who was supposed to drive us around all day was a couple hours late. We hopped on our bikes and started talking to people we saw on the streets. One family was moving so we offered our help and they actually allowed us to help them. Then one of them, a Young Single Adult named AJ, ended up being a former investigator who's been reading the Book of Mormon recently and wants to come to church and start taking the lessons again!
I love being a missionary. I love the Gospel of Jesus Christ and having the opportunity to share it with others!
I love all of you. But I love Jesus Christ more. And this is where He wants me. So this is where I want to be.
