Yay!! Papa Palafox Was Baptized!!
Papa Palafox's Baptism
Papa Palafox and his family.
It’s been a week--a hard but good one! We fought all week long with the
adversary. It’s so crazy how hard he
works to drag down these gospel hungry investigators that we have. It truly is a fight but I know we will win
for we have the Lord on our side.
We finished the week off with a great baptismal service for
Brother Lorenzo Palafox. I call him Papa
Palafox. His wife and kids joined the church one year ago and he has now
finally joined them as members of this great church! It was a wonderful service and we had a
special musical number that we did with the sisters and our ward mission
leader. The Spirit was super strong and
the other investigators that attended the service cried. It was awesome. We sang the primary song "When I am
Baptised" or whatever it is in English.
What a wonderful experience. It’s been a long, long time since I’ve had
a baptism--too long. I’m glad the streak
is over. I want more.
Life is good--too good.
I am so blessed.
P.S. Elder Clayton
comes this Saturday! I’m so excited!
Brother Aviles (and his wife) baptized Papa Palafox.
