My joy is overwhelming

This week was fantastic.  My joy is overwhelming.  Transfers came and I am going to stay in Rosario for another transfer.  At the end of this transfer I will have six months in Rosario, and I love it. This week was really spiritual for me. There is a kid named Jesus.  He comes to church every week with his grandparents and his grandparents really wanted him to be baptized. The mom of Jesus kept telling us that he was too young and that she wants him to be baptized but later. During my personal study I had the impression to just write what I was going to say to Hermana _______ (mom of Jesus). I had the impression to share my experience that I had with my baptism and what I learned and how it helped me, and that is what we want for your son. I was pretty direct in my question if her son could be baptized and she said yes. I baptized her son on Saturday and I have never seen a boy as happy as Jesus was on that day. I know that Hermana ________ felt the spirit after the baptism. I was so overwhelmed with the spirit.   She thanked me and gave me a hug. Me and my new companion are going to try all that we can to get Hermana ________ to go to church and be baptized.  The only problem is that she has to work on Sunday. 

Jesus is the best kid in the world. He is always happy and very helpful for his family. I gave him the football that you sent me for the 4th of July and he really likes it.  We even played catch with it for a little bit. One day he said what day is it? We said it is Thursday, he said oh no, I was hoping it was Saturday so that tomorrow I could go to church. He always wants to say the prayers, when we eat at their house or visit them. 

 On Sunday morning Elder Sumano baptized our investigator Hermano H_____.   He is a really golden investigator. He has read a lot of the Book of Mormon, has a testimony that it is true, and also I think that he could be a great leader in the church. 

Today I will receive a new companion named Elder Hernandez.  I am really excited to meet him and work with him. I will try to send a lot of pictures.

My love for all of you guys has increased so much during the mission, I didn´t realize how good I had it until I left to serve. Thanks for everything, I love you so much and you guys are always in my prayers.

Here are the photos from our baptisms this week.  In case you can't find me, I'm bent over in the suit in the first one.

Jesus Baptism


  1. I think it was Austin who said he had a boy in his class named Jesus, but they called him Hay-soos!

  2. Yep, that is how you say it. That was our neighbors name too, but the boy liked to tell me that Jesus was at the door.
