Rainy Days and Baptisms

Her there everyone! How is life going? We are going good over here! 

This week it Rained a little more, but not as bad as last week. It didn't hit as hard as it did in Comodoro, but my comp and I still got pretty darn wet. 

But the greatest was this Saturday! We had three baptisms in the branch. Fernando and Dario were investigators of the other Elders and the Hermanas. And then our baptism was Roxana. My last comp, Elder Clark Found Roxana like 6 months ago. They talked with her son first and then she started listening to us. We have been going by every day for like the past month. She had some very spiritual experiences.

I remember One day my comp and I were thinking about what we could do to help her. We said a prayer to know what she needed. I remembered about something that I did in the MTC in a practice. We invited our practice to do a prayer and ask specific questions. Like if God loved him. If this was the true church. Then after the prayer we just waited in silence for a few minutes to see how we felt. There in then MTC we felt the spirit really strongly after that prayer. So we decided to do the same thing with Roxana. 

We taught her a lesson about the atonement and told her that Christ had suffered for her and loved her so much. She said that is hard to believe. So we challenged her to do the prayer right there, and it was awesome. She talked about how the next day she felt so good, even though it was just a normal day. She said that she felt different. It was so awesome. That is something that I've learned here on the mission. We don't convert anyone; the spirit does all of the work . All we do is invite the spirit. Now Roxana has really good prayers, she is always very sincere. 

Thanks everyone for all of the prayers! You are the best have a great week!
