This area is super cool because there are a lot of people that are set up to be baptised. We will have at least 3 people baptised this next week. One man and 2 little boys. It’s gunna be great. I am so excited and also maybe a girl with 13 years. I’m super excited.
Well let me tell you about a miracle that happened yesterday. We went to church yesterday and brought our investigators and everything, but something super special that happened was that when we were going to the gospel principals class a sister came to me and said "Hey theres a man in that class that wants to be baptised. He is in your area. He came by himself and he wants to be baptised." Hapsoighoegjiçwsaolegawoy how cool is that. He just came because he wanted to be baptised! He just wanted to! What! No one comes by themselves to church and asks to be baptised! It’s a miracle!!!! ha ha So he will be baptised this next week. It just strengthened my testimony that God is preparing people to be taught and he touches their hearts. I am soo grateful for the work i have to opportunity to do and that i can see miracles every single day. I really do see miracles every single day. When we stop seeing miracles, it’s not because they aren’t there, its because we have gotten so used to miracles that we don’t see them. Sometimes we just need to open our eyes and see everything that Heavenly Father is doing for us every single day. One single person that accepts the gospel is a miracle. One person that goes to church is a miracle. When you have money left over in your wallet to get to your new area, its a miracle. When its a holiday in mossoro and all the internet cafe´s are down and a member offers for you to use internet in their house, its a miracle. When you can repent for not trying your hardest one day, its a miracle. Every single day is a miracle. We just need to open our eyes and see it.
I love you all! Thank you for your support and help and prayers. Have a great week
love, sister j. baker
A note to Momma:
Here they don't celebrate halloween, they celebrate the day of respecting the dead. everyone goes to the cemetary and visits the graves of the people that died. they celebrate it today and everyone is off of school and no one is in the street. So its good that it is pday because it would be suuper hard to teach people today. but do you know what i missed a lot? carving pumpkins and eating clam chowder in bread bowls. Man oh man i cant wait to eat that again.
im glad that grandma is doing better. i was a little worried about her. i love grandma and grandpa a lot. they are angels in my life. give them a hug for me.
well i was transfered. wahoo. and im really happy in my new area. its really great here. i should do some really solid work. I love the members here too. They are great. I think i will finish my mission here. Now i'm sister training leader. I dont know how i feel about it. Maybe i need to be here helping sisters. I think i have some purpose to be this. ha ha. It'll all be fine.
I love you alot mama. you are great. Thanks for your support and help.
