Once again, an extremely full week! I wanted to start off with a scripture I found this week that really got my attention.
Ausi and I at the Baptism
Alma 38:5 from the Book of Mormon:
And then she was baptized! That's right, on Sunday Daiana was baptized a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of latter day saints! But let's back up a second. In the morning when my companion and I entered Relief Society, the sister speaking pointed at me and started talking about my piano abilities. She then asked me, in front of the class, if I'd be willing to play for sacrament meeting. Shocked, I said sure, to which she found one of the bishopric, scheduled everything, and came back to tell me that I would be playing a special number that very day! Talk about nuts! I ended up playing Pachabel's canon in D. Then we had the baptism! It was beautiful. All of Daiana's family came. I couldn't help thinking as we sat there how we hadn't done anything to bring about the baptism. That really EVERY baptism was God's baptism. We don't prepare the people. We don't even choose them. God puts us together. It's beautiful and humbling, working side by side with God in the mission. My companion and I also sang our song Families can be together mix in Spanish and English:) We had lunch with Elder and Hermana Hunter (awesome) and the rest of the day was pretty sweet:)
I'm extremely blessed to be here in the mission and love every moment I have been given and every moment yet to come. Love all of you!
