Denis: Newest Member of the Church in Cristalina!

The highlight of the week was definitely Denis's baptism on Saturday!! Behind our little white chapel there is a pool that's our baptismal font. A super humbling experience to know that no matter where you are in the world, the priesthood is still the same.
On Sunday, Denis was given the gift of the Holy Ghost, sustained as the newest member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Cristalina, and received the Aaronic Priesthood. :) A super special experience, we're so happy for him!!!!!!!
Denis is too funny. When we went to teach him Sunday night:
"What were those guys doing when they put my hands on my head? Did something happen?..."
us: "Haha yes Denis, you received the priesthood."
:) It was great explaining that to him.

Denis is already fitting into the ward, he shares about how's he a completely different person than from who he was before. How it has affected his life entirely. He now goes to bed early and gets up early. He eats meals at the right time. He is SO much happier. He told us about how much he loves the church... he is definitely one of the most humble, simple people I have ever met, and I know he will be one of the strongest members here because of his loyalty to the Lord. It's great to see him smiling<3

We found lots of new investigators this week, we've decided to work in different parts of our area... the Lord really does guide us.
On Thursday my mom (trainer) came to visit me!!!!!!!! Actually, she's Sister Training Leader now so she came to do splits with us so it was super fantastic to see her again <3 
This week our focus was on inviting everybody we meet to be baptized, it was super fantastic and helped us find lots of new people!!!

All is well in Zion!!!!
