Hermana Peterson and I were able to get a lot done this week. We were busy contacting some references that we had recieved and one of the names was Jesus. So we had a good laugh about that, a couple of missionaries looking for Jesus. We weren`t able to find him but we did find a young mom, Joana. She`s really sweet and really receptive. She accepted a date for baptism! Hermana Peterson and I are so excited for her.
We`ve been really focusing on our Colombian friend, Felipe. He has been to church so many times now and has all the lessons but just won`t committ to a specific date for his baptism. We`ve been praying and praying for him and when we went to visit him yesterday we were talking to him about this saturday as a possible date but he took out his calendar and told us that he knows the date of his baptism and it`s February 5th. Hna. Peterson and I were at first a little frustrated, why does he want to wait? He could be baptized this Saturday! But the spirit gave me the humbling reminder, that I`m not here to do what I want but what the Lord wants and it was a miracle that Felipe chose a date for his baptism. I`m so grateful for that experience, this is the Lord`s work and we`re here helping people.
I know that this is exactly where I`m supposed to be right now, here in Roca with Hna. Peterson. This place and these people are changing my life :)
