Actually this week felt like it past by so slowly! I was
dying!But anyways, Matheus was baptized!!
It wasn’t easy, but I was very happy he was. Well, during the week, Matheus´s
mom was very nice with us and let us in and said that Matheus could be
baptized. she even said that she would watch the baptism and go to church with
him the next day. Actually, the whole family said they would, but when the day
of the baptism rolled around, I got to their door to get Matheus and bring him
to the church, his mom started yelling at me, but in a quiet tone. She started
going off saying that she will never go to our church and that she will never
want her son to be a part of it, and that she doesn’t agree that her son should
be baptized. She kept saying this over and over again, but in the end she said
that Matheus can do whatever he wants to do. (the good thing is that she
already signed the papers to let him get baptized, so with or without her
verbal consent, I was going to baptize Matheus). Oh and she finally consented
to letting him get baptized, but she still was very mad for some reason. I hope that Matheus
can show his example at home. The weirdest thing was
is that we went there every day and she was very nice, but man she exploded on
the day of the baptism. to be honest, I think someone told her very bad things
about the church. who happens to live right near here. Stupid people, who know
Oh and two other things happened Saturday and Sunday. we
were able to commit two other people to baptism this Sunday! They have been
going to church for some time now and I had no idea that they were not already
baptized. So as a missionary, I did what I have to do. I invited them to be
baptized. Well it worked and they committed!!! It should be great. I love it
when people say yes. Actually the word no, can be a very hurtful word and
should be used a lot less!
