Quieridos familia y amigos,
This Saturday we have the baptism of Leandro. Awesome story!: Leandro is 20 years old, a great, great guy. Respectful and just a great guy, especially for being 20. Leandro was taught by a couple sets of missionaries over the past few months, because of transfers of missionaries, and because he moved into our ward boundaries. His testimony of the Gospel of Jesus Christ is the strongest I've ever seen in an investigator. Yesterday we were teaching him about the covenant of Baptism and also the baptismal questions that he is going to be asked during his interview. The questions are about his testimony of certain aspects of the gospel like the law of tithing, do you believe Christ is your Savior, what does is mean to you personally that we have a prophet of God on the earth today? Etc. It was very profound to be able to talk to him about his conviction of the Gospel! But something that made me almost fall to the ground, was the fact that a member (that was in the lesson with us) asked him if he was going to go on a mission because he's only 20 (kind of jokeingly).. and he said with tears in his eyes, that he has actually been praying about it and wants to go on a mission! Oh my gosh, he wants to go on a mission, and he's not even a member yet! His testimony is so strong, and it is a privilege to be able to witness it!
A couple other things:
We went to the temple on monday and it was FANTASTIC! Everything in Spanish. So powerful! I love the temple so very much, there are no words to describe it!
Have a fantastic week!Hermana Gardner
