Seeing through Heavenly Father's Eyes
Sister Anunciado had a super fast week! I felt like.....not even two days has gone by this week! Time flies when you're a missionary!
We had another successful baptism of Lina. I'll forward the email from Sister Anunciado about it to you, Mom. We are now required to send pictures and stories of our baptismal candidates to the office and to President Barredo.
I have just really been learning to appreciate the sacrament. We were asked in a lesson yesterday, "So if you sin again, do you have to be baptized again??" Sister Anunciado and I were talking about that, and I told her that I would never want to go without taking the sacrament. If you don't take the sacrament once, that means you have half a month of sin to carry around! No thanks. It is much better to repent and take the sacrament.
I have also appreciated this week the perspective that missionary work gives. Added to that, I love the take that Elder Renlund gave in his talk about seeing people through Heavenly Father's eyes. That really changes everything.
So, I'm at a loss at what to write!!
But that is not an indication of my lack of love for you all because I love you all so very very dearly!!
Email from Sister Anunciado to Mission President: Lina was first contacted by Sister Marriott and Sister Dumapias. She talked to one of the recent convert who lived in the same place where she lived and told that she wanted to listen to their message.Her first lesson was in at the house of another investigator.Her baptismal date was moved a couple of times.She had a hard time going to church because her income is not enough to sustain their needs already. Nevertheless we promised her that if she will pray to Heavenly Father and talked to him about her situation, she will received divine help.She did so and after that we literally saw that Heavenly Father helped her to obey His commandments and eventually be prepared to receive her baptism.We also found out that she thinks that if she'll be baptized it's useless because she can't bring her whole family with her yet. Nevertheless, she said in her testimony at her baptism that if she will lead and example in her family by being baptized she will be able to bring them to knowledge of our God
