This week was great. First week of the transfer and one of our investigators was baptized! We started teaching Samara last transfer, and she has progressed so well over the past few weeks or so. The ward was very excited to see her baptism.
Samara was a result of door to door proselyting. When we taught the first lesson, she told us how many years ago she was contacted by the Elders, and started going to church. In that time, the members of this region congregated in the house that the Bishop rented. The Elders in that time were both transferred, and unfortunately, no one followed up with Samara. She soon stopped going to church.
Many years passed by until Samara found us knocking on her door, and very thankfully accepted our lesson.
Elder Arana and I are extremely grateful to the Lord, who has prepared Samara over a long period of time. I know that the Lord directed us to Samara´s house so that she could recieve the true gospel once again. God prepares his children here on earth to hear the message of the restored gospel. I have experienced this so many times on my mission that it is impossible to deny.
I know that my Redeemer lives, and that he loves us. He desires to see the eternal happiness of all the children of God, and thus he accomplished the great work of the atonement for us.
Daqui á pouco!
