Transfer Week is coming!!! It will be on the 10th of February.
I strongly believe that Elder Berdin and I will both stay on our area.
Haha, I am still finishing his training, and I still want to be with Elder Berdin for another transfer.
Anyway, Our week's highlight is the Baptism of our 2 Wonderful Investigators.
Bro. Alejandro and Sister Lady Rose... They got baptize last Saturday and confirmed as a member of the Church yesterday.
They we're really nervous to share their testimonies, but they overcame the fear to speak in front of us after their ordinance.
They shared a short and powerful testimony. I wrote their testimonies in a piece of paper. Brother Alejandro said that God showed him the right way, while sister Lady Rose said that She has been waiting and searching for the truth and was really grateful that she found it!
I love the, And we as missionaries and members of this branch will continue to minister to them.
Well, last Monday we contacted a media referral that lives really really far from our focused area. She's 19, A catholic and currently studying as a Nurse, She's really nice and she committed to be baptize on March.
But this morning, We received a text message from her that her mom won't allow her to change their religion.
Elder Berdin and I we're really devastated after reading the text, For we have felt her desire to follow the Savior's Example, and during the lesson, I can tell that She's feeling the Spirit. But I can't control her life, She has her own Agency, I am still grateful that Elder Berdin and I were able to share the message of the restoration of the Gospel to her and We were able to declare a voice of warning to her.
This Experience reminds me of the scripture verse in Helaman 12:1 that says:
What happens next was, We found ourselves teaching him, about God's Plan, about Families, and about the Savior.
He shared more of his life to us openly, and He was shedding in tears while sharing.
I tapped his back and gave him a little shoulder hug. He was comforted and received and assurance that everything will be well again.
That is part of our responsibilities as members and missionaries,
"To mourn with those that mourn"
I am Grateful that I am an official Minister. I am Grateful that The Holy Ghost is there to guide us.
That is all for today.
We'll You all take care!!!
(Advance Happy Valentines Day)
Lots of Love:Elder Ordejan
