Week 101

Well this week was an incredible week!!! A lot of wonderful things happened. I love missionary work. Like a lot. It is the best thing ever. So let me think about the highlights of the week this week. We got to go on 2 exchanges this week! I got to spend some time with some amazing Elders and it was a blast. The biggest highlight of the week was Marisa getting baptized! That was incredbile. It was the first convert baptism in this ward in well over a year. There was probably over 50 people there and it was powerful. The spirit of the Lord was there and we all felt loved and encouraged and peaceful. It was great. I loved it. She has been being taught by missionaries for almost 3 years. She has been really close before but finally made it this weekend! She was so happy. I had the thought after the baptism that it could be the last one of my mission. Then Heavenly Father prompted me and told me that it doesn't have to be. There is more work to be done! I am excited to go out and do it! Yesterday was a great Easter. I had the amazing opportunity to speak in Sacrament Meeting yesterday. I hated speaking in Sacrament before my mission. I really enjoy it now. I enjoy having the opportunity to study for something specific and to share my testimony to everyone at once. I had a great experience yesterday. The spirit helped me share the things that needed to be shared. I loved it. That is all I can think of!! Great week and I hope yours was too!!
