Then Saturday was one of the best days of my mission, if not my LIFE. For reals, I’ve waited so long for this day and we have put in a ton of work.
CELIA WAS BAPTIZED!!
We decorated the chapel/multipurpose room in the morning, then filled the font, that whole deal, pictures….and then the actual baptism! She was SO happy and Javier too. She had a hard time expressing her emotions when she bore her testimony, but you can just FEEL her faith. Its incredible – especially about the Book of Mormon. She’s a faithful reader!! After the baptismal service, we had a quick intermission…then their wedding reception!
Two big events in one night, so I was exhausted afterwards, but so worth it. We had special musical numbers, they had some time to share their feelings, (during that, Javier grabbed Celia’s hand…I started to tear up. I look at Hna Ruiz and she is too, but she just said, “strong!” strong!” – Yes, in english. Ha ha.) and then they cut the cake, toasts (with ginger ale) and lots of other goodies. It was a GOOD night, spent with people that I love like none other.
And that was my week. Seriously, before the mission, I didn`t understand what miracles were. But Heavenly Father has a plan for all of his children. I have a testimony that sometimes when our plans don’t happen the way we want, sometimes (or all of the time) its for the better, because He has the perfect perspective!!
