How's everyone doing this beautiful Monday morning!How was everyone’s Halloween and weekend?
This last week was grand! We had two missionary booths and were able to set a baptismal date with Demitrio!!!
The Booths on Palomar are a lot of fun and we give out about 40 copies of Book of Mormon a day and other pamphlets and cards and stuff, and we will usually get at least a few referrals a day from them. So tons of seeds are planted from them, we get the word out to people (college kids) about who we are, what we do, and that were not weird.
Halloween was on Friday, it’s weird though, I almost forgot it was Halloween. It didn’t feel like it was any kind of holiday at all. Holidays are incredibly different as a missionary.
We had a lesson with Demitrio on Saturday night. He was feeling really sick so we were able to explain to him what the Priesthood is and how Priesthood blessings work and then proceeded to give him a blessing. We taught him about the gospel of Jesus Christ and how living it would give him strength to overcome the trials that he is facing in his life. He has been though and is going through a lot. When we got to the point where we explained baptism he was anxious to set a date with us. We set a date for the 23rd of November. I’m excited for this guy. This is exactly what he needs in his life. It’s going to bless him in so many ways. I wish that everyone understood that, sometimes even we as members forget. We have the fullness of the gospel, eternal truth, the Priesthood of God, and if you just live it and do what Heavenly Father wants you to do, you will have nothing to worry about. It’s so simple, but sometimes it’s not the easiest path to follow.
I love the work that I am engaged in, I wish you could feel the joy that comes from seeing the light of the gospel in someone’s eyes for the first time, and seeing those people become what Heavenly Father wants them to become. Seeing others happy and knowing that you were the cause of that reaction, brings me happiness that can’t be found anywhere else.
I love you all, and I mean it,
