Cristhels Baptism- April 29, 2013

This week we held the baptism of Cristhel who has been awfully excited about this special day. She actually just got married to a member about a month ago and her husband was able to baptize and confirm her. She has such a warm and happy personality and is just a blast of life. It has been a great experience being able to teach her and be part of this experience. The members have been very supportive and welcomed her with open arms. They have been making plans to be able to get sealed in the temple a year from now and we are excited to see them progressing.

We met someone the other day who let is into his him and we were able to teach about the Restoration of the Gospel. When we started talking about Joseph Smith, how he had been looking for the truth and had been confused by so many different denominations. The investigator paused, looked at us and told us how he had been feeling the same way. He was baptized as a baby but really hadn’t participated in his religion during his life. We gave him a Book of Mormon and he committed to read and pray about it.
The Lord has been blessing us and I am so thankful for his help and for this wonderful opportunity to be here in Mexico.

I love you all,

Elder Peine
