We had ourselves a baptism!!!!!!

Hey HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAD!!!!! How old are you now? ha ha How was it? It was Wednesday right? I hope it was good! You know I love you and all!! :)
Well This was a great one! Everything is good here now after the Typhoon. The electricity and water came back on finally! People are just working hard putting their cardboard or wood or scrap metal roofs back up.
Well you all know why this week was so good. We had ourselves a baptism! It was great! Sister Juliet was baptized on Saturday. It went really well, not the biggest attendance but man the spirit was there. From the moment we taught this lady we knew she was going to be baptized. No matter how many times she said she didn't want to. haha We knew she was chosen of god at this time. She has been through some rough things but President Tye interviewed her and was very impressed. She boar her testimony at the end and we were touched. She was very diligent in reading the Book of Mormon, which is a weakness in most Filipino investigators. She is about to finish the book and understands everything! She boar her testimony on the scripture that changed her life and feelings towards baptism. She read alma 16:17 " That they might not be hardened against the word, that they might not be unbelieving, and go on to destruction, but that they might receive the word with joy, and as a branch be grafted into true vine, that they might enter into the rest of the Lord their God." What a scripture right? One that I haven't even really noticed. haha But it touched my heart. sometimes we harden our hearts and we don't even realize it. If we open our hearts to him just like we promised her and the Lord promises us. "I will not Fail thee, Nor forsake thee." Good week!
Love, Elder MC
