This Saturday we had the baptism of Reyna (13) Aylin (11) and Itzel (8), the daughters of Damian and Belen, two investigators. The Baptismal service turned out super well, and we were afraid that not many people would come because our ward is so small, but almost every seat was filled.
My companion Elder Hernandez was able to baptize the three of them, and I confirmed two of them, the oldest and the youngest (the bishop confirmed Aylin).
The sad part is that they were baptized Saturday, confirmed Sunday, and then left Sunday night because they moved! We spent the majority of the day Sunday helping them move and get everything ready, and then said goodbye.
Some other members in the ward are going to go to church with them on Sunday to make sure that the new ward gets involved. We are super grateful for them.
We will miss this great family! But we know that they will be ok, and that their parents will soon follow :)
Elder Hernandez is ecstatic, as it is his first baptism; though the moment is a little bitter-sweet, but we have faith that out loving Heavenly Father will take care of them.
Now were are anxious to find more people and invite them to participate in the Restored Gospel of Jesus Christ!
Take care, and never forget the joy found in this Gospel!
