Baptism Goals

Monday October 1st, 2012

So this past week,

On Sunday we baptized Adriano. He is 25 and is super excited for everything. I mean like he really wants to see General Conference, and receive the priesthood and get a calling. He used to be a member of the Assembly of God church which is the only church who tries to bible bash with the missionaries. He is a very cool guy though.

Also this past week we had two other guys to be baptized on Sunday as well and both of them are named Bruno, but both of them were not baptized. One of the Bruno’s who is the cousin to Adriano just kept running from us, so it made it kind of difficult to get him in the water!! But I think maybe this Sunday we will be able to catch him. The other Bruno who is the nephew of the Bishop said he wanted to and everything, but two days before Sunday his Mom said he didn’t want to be baptized and that this Sunday is not the right time for baptism. Bruno was sitting right there next to her when she was saying all of this, but he wouldn’t say anything. When his mom is there, he doesn’t know what the right thing to say is because she really doesn’t want him to be baptized. She doesn’t like religion. It puts a little bit of difficulty in our work. But when Bruno can actually just tell his Mom what he actually wants then we will baptize him.

This past week as well, I haven’t learned much, or really did anything new, but I did get really sad. We are seeing a recent convert who is starting to be less active. The husband is part of the Quorum presidency and he loves being a part of the ward. His wife on the other hand is a little difficult. She told us, just me and Elder Collins that she doesn’t want to go to the temple to be sealed and if she could have done it all over again, she would have never had children. It’s just so sad to see a happy family starting to fall apart because they don’t know what is important. Also the husband doesn’t do his priesthood duties in the home and the wife is a little bothered by that which is understandable. Unfortunately no active members help the other members but seriously it’s the temple and exaltation!!  It’s what we should all strive to receive.

Today I am going to lunch with the zone leaders at one of their recent convert’s houses. I hope it will be a good lunch. The recent converts are very cool and help the missionaries a lot. But anyways that’s up with me. Oh and I am excited to get mail tomorrow night. Oh and our zone in Mossoro had 23 baptisms for the month. Out of 23 we had 7 men. And also of the 23 people, 3 completed a family in the church. SWEET!

I  love you and I am very excited to get all these packages and letters! I love you a lot and have a good week.
