Naku! What a week! We had a great week filled with celebrating and finding opportunities to bring people closer to their Savior :) The week was filled with preparation for 2 baptisms on Christmas. Jen and Maryella were both baptized with 4 others on Christmas. It was a sweet remembrance for a beautiful Christmas. We stayed busy for a good amount of time with their baptisms. And then a day later, we had another investigator tell us that she received her cinomar. A cinomar is a form that shows if they are married. She found out that her husband was married already, so she couldn't get married to him, but according to regulations here they had been living together long enough that she could be baptized. It has been a long waiting process for their family and we found ourselves preparing for another baptism. It was a wonderful experience with Sister Jinky and her daughter Mira. It was a blessing to reap of the blessings and to see the Lord working in the lives of those that we love. It was a busy week of baptisms, exchanges and learning opportunities.
Oh yeah...transfer announcements.... Sister Pace is called to serve in Daraga for another transfer with Sister Donato. We are both excited for this transfer and the opportunities to build our area. It has been such a blessing and I know that the Lord merely is using us as instruments to bless the lives of others. I am so very grateful for the birth of my Lord and Savior, and the blessing of a new year. It is to become a monumental time to return to the Lord and face the challenges of life with a determination to become better.
