Miracles of the mission

Wow, you talking about spring makes me miss the spring days in Maine. Actually, I just miss Maine in general, with the beach and the air and grass and trees... dang. When I get back, I can't wait to send a bunch of time in Maine before I go off to school again.

This past week has been really good. We had an absolutely amazing experience and miracle with an investigador this past week who got baptised. He has been our inversigador for almost 2 months, he was a contact of the past sisters in the area, and he has always wanted to get baptised, he had received an answer that the church is true and everything way before, but his parents were totally against it and he is 16 so they have to give him permission in order for him to get baptised. And he had done everything to try to get them to give him permission to get baptised, he had fasted, and recieved a special blessing, watched church movies with them, and brought missionaries and members over to talk with them, and still they would not give permission, and even through it all, he was so faithful and trusting in the Lord. But this past week, he went to conference, and he told us that when the prophet spoke, he felt the Spirit so strongly and felt that the Lord was going to help him to get baptised soon. And we went and visited him on Wed and he was kind of discouraged and all about his parents, but we read with him Mosiah 24 with him, about the Lord easing the burdens of the people through their patience and faith in Him. (Read this chapter over again, it is super good) and just as our investigador read verse 16 and 17, he stopped and looked up and told us that he felt an amazing peace and sense of joy, that Heavenly Father would help him to get baptised soon. And then, his dad came home randomly, and we all got super nervous cause we were going to try to talk to him again, and we prayed for strength and for his dads heart to be softened. And we talked to him, and randomly, he signed the paper!!! We were all on the verge of tears, we were so happy, it was an amazing feeling, and we said a prayer of thanks after his dad left. And our investigador just got baptised this past saturday! He was sooo happy. When he was lifted out of the water, he just had the biggest smile on his face, and he only said one word, ``Incredible``. The Spirit was really so strong. He is going to make an amazing missionary in 2 years.

Miracles really do happen here in mission feild, and it is really amazing to see them happening every day in the work of Salvation. I know that this is the true church of Jesus Christ here on the earth today, and that we really have an amazing responsiblily to bring our source of peace and happiness to all those in our lives. This week being Easter and all, we really have the chance to celebrate the live of Christ and all that He has done for us so that we too, can live again. I know that my Redemer lives with all of my heart. :)

I love you guys and have an amazing week! Love, Hermana Wright
