It finally happened! Mayra finally took the big plunge. She has been cancelling and postponing the baptism for a few weeks now but a week ago she just called up the Elders and told them she was ready and wanted to be baptized that Tuesday.
So we threw together a little baptism. She didn't want very many people there. There were about 10 people there total. Dave baptised her. It's always so nice to see him exercising that sacred priesthood he holds!
But one kind of weird thing was that her stake doesn't allow the confirmation until the investigator has had two new member discussions. So, Mayra won't be able to be confirmed until next Sunday (because of General Conference). But I'm excited for her to be a full fledged member...finally!
I am so grateful for the whole experience, both the ups AND downs. It has been such a testimony builder. I know, through very personal revelation from the Holy Ghost, that this Church is truly the only way to eternal peace and happiness. I know that Gordon B. Hinckley is a prophet of God and the leader of God's church on this earth. And I am so grateful for him. I know that Jesus Christ, through the Atonement, has all the power to heal and save us if we will humble ourselves and turn our wills over to our Lord and Savior.
