Week 16 in Satélite Hermosillo!!!

Okay… well this week was super good if for nothing else but the baptism of Mario!!! WWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Saturday we went to his house in the morning to check on him to see how he was doing and how things were going to go in his baptism because we had asked him who he wanted to talk in his baptism and everything he was super excited!!! He was ready to go right then and there!!! It was really funny! The baptism was set to be at 5 pm, we went to the church to clean it and get everything but the thing is that we couldn´t open the baptismal font to fill it and it takes 2 hours to fill it up normally. Well we got at the church at 3 to start filling it up but couldn´t open it because we didn´t have keys and normally its not locked. We called 3 different wards and noone was in town because of Pascua. We called everyone we knew and last but not least we called other hermanas and they told us that there aren´t any keys to the font. We had to open it with a credit card!!!! After we learned of this it had passed about an hour and to open the door (it was a little hard) but that took another 15 minutes, so at 4:20 we started to fill the font and we prayed immediately because normally the font takes 2 hours and we had 40 minutes until it was time for the baptism of Mario!!! I don´t think I´ve ever been so stressed for time because we hadn´t cleaned the capilla either so we cleaned it in a miraculous 20 min. and with many other prayers the font was more than full after one hour. We didn´t start the baptism at 5… but at 5:30!!! BOOM!!! Blessings from the Lord!!! Mario was so excited because also the water was lukewarmish… but it wasn´t freezing!!!! He bore his testimony and truthfully… I cried. I think he´ll be bishop or something in a few years. Despite all the other crazy things that happened this day that would have prevented Mario from getting baptized, through faith and prayer… WE DID IT!!!! Octavio a new member that got baptized a month ago baptized Mario and yesterday he was confirmed. It was a good day!!! I learned a lot… and only in 2 hours. We had other spiritual experiences this week as well, we found a new family that we´re teaching and they are pretty cool. They have 3 daughters. We are still searching and searching. Truthfully I´ve never had much trouble to enter into a house, but here its a little difficult. But that´s okay, hopefully one day someone will let us in and they will want to listen to the restored gospel, the gospel of Jesus Christ. We are searching for people that want to change their lives through the gospel, want to be better people, happier and blessed. I know that more and more as we search that the Lord will bless us in our efforts. The Lord always blesses us when we are faithful to Him, sometimes (oftentimes) we have to suffer a little bit, but the blessings ALWAYS COME!!!! I know that to be true… don´t mean for all of these letters to be so preachy… SORRY!!! But really though!!! THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST BLESSES OUR LIVES SO MUCH!!! I am so grateful to be here and to bring this message to others. Thank you for all your prayers and love!!! We´re feeling it!!

Con mucho amor por ustedes de aquí en Hermosillo,
Hermana Ashby
