Best Birthday Ever!!

24 March 2014

Letter to All:

They got baptized!  Wooooh!  My best birthday yet! haha!  

The baptism was great, the spirit was very strong in the baptism.  Everything turned out all right!  We gave Gustavo and Wilmer time to give their testimonies after the baptism.  Wilmer´s testimony was powerful, he is such a great example for me.  Friday a bunch of Catholics came to visit him and a ton of friends were sending him messages telling him he was crazy, he grandma didn`t want him to leave the house.  He has had some great trials of faith.  But he was willing to take his cross and follow Christ.  The trials will continue but I know he´ll be strong.

Wilmer and Gustavo also got the priesthood on Sunday.  And this coming Sunday Wilmer will be blessing the sacrament and Gustavo will be preparing it!  Almost all of the young men that are active here are converts, It´s pretty cool to see the faith of these kids.

I had a good birthday, we ate cheese cake, we took funny pictures, they tried to break an egg on my head but I caught them haha!  On my companion’s birthday we broke and egg on his head, Elder Mann turned 21 on the 18th.  And now on the 4th of April, Elder Agustin will turn 19!  We all have are birthdays together.

Karla is progressing, she´s reading the Book of Mormon more.  We read Alma 32 with her and we explained how she can grow her faith, but also if she didn’t read or go to church she was going to neglect the growth of her faith.

Pedro hasn´t smoked for a couple days and he´s been to church 4 times now!

Marta is excited once again to get baptized and she´s coming back to church, we just have to teach her more and she´ll get baptized too.  

So, we should have at least 3 baptisms in April!  Maybe 4...we want to start teaching Cristian again to see if she´s ready to get baptized.

Things are going well, we have a lot of work left ahead!

Take care everyone!

Elder Willden

 One Awesome Party!!
