ADAN GOT BAPTIZED!! Woohoo!! He was all ready for his baptism and was so excited to be thrown in the water. And on Sunday he was all ready for church and he brought his brother and his wife!! He is already a missionary. What a pilas convert :)
President Wilford Woodruff said, "What greater calling can any man or woman have on the face of the earth than to hold in his or her hands power and authority to go forth and admiinister in the ordinances of salvation? You become an instrument in the hands of God in the salvation of that soul. There is nothing given to the children of men that is equal to it."
Elder Santizo told us that Adan said Hermana Gould and I were angels for him, helping him find God and change his life. I know that it wasn’t us, but it was the hand of the Lord, showing us where we needed to be so that we could find Adan and bring him unto Christ. I know that as missionaries we have the power and authority to be in tune with the spirit so we can find the people that are waiting for us. Sometimes I am just in awe that Heavenly Father lets 18 and 19 year olds do his work for Him. But then I remember that we really are just instruments, and He is the one doing all the work. How humbling is it that He lets us do that. I love being a missionary!
