It’s been a really busy, but really good week! We had a wedding, baptisms galore, and new sisters! It’s really been great.
First off, the new sisters are AWESOME. First day, they came with such a eagerness to learn and to work, and they are way fun. We already love them. My new companion is Sister Olander. She is from Washington, and is a nurse! I got a little sick this weekend, so it was a major blessing to have her. She helped so much. I will stay in Maputo 2 and work with her. I am so excited!
Our couple, Victoria and Carlos, got married this weekend, and the wedding was really great. Mocambiquans sure like to party! It was even more special when we saw them enter the waters of baptism with their little girl, Selma, and get confirmed on Sunday. They were so happy. Victoria even came to help clean the chapel on Saturday at 8 a.m., the day after her wedding. A really special family. 4 other siblings from our family of 10 were baptized on Saturday, and they are a miracle that I am grateful for more everyday. I visited them the night of their baptism, and we had a testimony meeting. It was amazing to hear them bear such strong testimonies of the truth they have learned and felt. I know that it was only through the Lord that I was able to help them. I remember distinctly feeling in that testimony meeting that they are a family who, upon hearing the truths of the gospel, recognized truth they had already learned, before this life. It was familiar to them, so they followed with faith. They are amazing.
Now that we’re all in our areas with our new companions, I am ready to work, and find more of God’s prepared children. This work is amazing!
I hope you all have a wonderful week! Thanks for all your love and support!
