Santee - Week #50 - Apr 15, 2014

I'm dreaming of a white... weekend!

Hola familia!

Beautiful week. So many people were dressed in white this weekend! Including the bride at a wedding that almost stopped 3 baptisms from happening... But all is well!

JOSE GOT BAPTIZED!!! Wahoo!! We got to go back to Chula Vista for his baptism. And guess who baptized him? Manuel!! It was probably one of the most touching moments I've had on the mission to watch one of our recent converts baptized another one of our recent converts. I will never forget that moment of pure joy. It's amazing to watch the Gospel have a domino effect on one life at a time.

ANI GOT BAPTIZED!!! Wahoo!! Haha she was one of the little girls we were teaching. She is the cutest little 9-year-old hispanic girl in the world. She started crying while she bore her testimony at the end of the baptism. All of our hearts melted a lil' bit. Two more investigators the other Elders were teaching got baptized that same day as well. 3 new members of the Santee 5th branch this weekend! So much white.

Part of being a Sister Training Leader, we go on exchanges once or twice a week with the sisters under our jurisdiction. That includes all the Spanish sisters in Poway, Imperial Valley, Ramona (whoo!) and part of a zone in San Diego. This past week, I got to go to Poway on an exchange with a sister named Sister Sanchez. It was way awesome! She is amazing. I'm excited to continue to help the sisters in the way Heavenly Father would but also to learn from them at the same time. This is the coolest calling ever. And I have the best companion ever. I don't have words to describe my love for her.

I hope you all have a beautiful Easter Weekend and remember how blessed we are that Jesus Christ overcame all so that we could, too. I know He is our Savior and that He died for us then and LIVES for us now. Love you!
