Yesterday we had Luciana's baptism, it was such a wonderful thing because in just a little over 2 weeks she has been preparing and preparing, she is so amazing and we had so much faith in her and even more than that, she believed in herself and truly used the Atonement of Jesus Christ in her life.
Truly seeing the change in her was such a testimony to me of Heavenly Father's love for us.
Sister Gimenez leaves me today and at the beginning of this transfer we had so many goals to baptize tons of people, even though we were opening the area together... and I'll be honest, 2 Sundays ago when I was playing the piano in sacrament meeting during the sacrament I couldn't help but cry because we were doing everything in our power to bring our investigators to church and we had 0 people in church that week.
But yesterday, reflecting on everything we passed through together these past 5 weeks, I felt that Luciana was our miracle.
This week I've been pondering Alma 29 over and over and over again... because it got to a point that we had walked a ways to visit an investigator who flaked out on our appointment (about the billionth time that this happens #southamerica) and as we were walking to the other side of town I just looked up at the sky and asked 'Why don't they get it'.
