This was a very exciting week! M--- was baptized!!!!! YAAAAAA!!!! She was so happy! It's crazy to think that we met her for the first time just two months ago. :) A little after the Baptism we were in the hall talking and I told her, "hey M---, now you're a Mormon" You should have seen the smile haha!
The week leading up to the day involved a lot of last questions and long talks but when Saturday rolled around she was more than ready! Elder Gardner performed the Baptism and I confirmed her the next day. She loved it! She was seriously so happy. She shared her testimony at the Baptism and sang two songs from the pulpit. She said that was the best way for her to express her feelings. Sunday was fast and testimony meeting and she stood up again to share her testimony! Brave, right? Well she stood up said a few words and then sang loud and proud, completely accapella Amazing Grace. It. Was. So. Awesome. She is really adding some spice to this ward! :) It has seriously been so special watching this woman grow and change as she learned the Gospel of Jesus Christ! She has incredible faith and it was great to see her kids and her friends come to the baptism to support her!
I'm definitely not doing a good enough job explaining how sweet this whole week was but I'm trying! Being a missionary is the best because you get to see people start to realize how huge their potential is as children of God. I love being a missionary!!
