This week we had another baptism!

She was a cute, little 15 year old girl. She was taught in the past by missionaries and SOOO prepared!!!! When we first met her she told us the story of Joseph Smith, the Plan of Salvation, and lots of other things regarding the gospel. We were blown away. Before we asked her, she told us she wanted to be baptized. We then got permission from her parents, since this is a huge change in life. Her parents were awesome! They told us if she knows it is true, great she can do what she wants but we don’t want to change. So she was pretty much in tears when we got permission. She is so sweet and cute!!! Then this past Saturday she got baptized!! Sunday she was the first one in church, ready to receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. Baptisms are such a sweet moment. It is a moment that chances lives.

Funny moment of the week, we were knocking on doors and would say we are looking for so and so. Then they normally say sorry they are not here. So then we ask about them and try to teach the gospel. Well, it was my turn and I asked a man on the street, who looked like he lived in this house, where Betinha lived. He then told me, oh it is the owner of this car, let me call her for you. My companion is trying not to laugh. I then have to tell him of it is not that Betinha it is another one. Betinha is not a very common name! HaHa Knocking on doors is always a crazy thing never know who is on the other side.

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
