Baptism of Mayra!!! :D

Okay the story of Mayra...

Her husband is Adan. He is an ex Missionary. They have been married for 7 years. They have three beautiful girls, Camilla, Valentina & Annete.

Mayra heard from Elderes and Sisters throughout their marriage. And I know that each person that visited her and her family made a difference. When we visited her for the first time we zoned in on her needs. And one thing that we noticed was the importance of her family for her. So I think the first three lessons we gave were about Families. She had heard about Joseph Smith and the Book of Mormon many times. She even believed these things. But when we focused on her family, temples, and family history is where it changed. It all clicked more, and she excepeted to be baptized!  :)

​We made sure that the family picture was under the Hermosillo Temple, which is their next step!  :D

​She is someone who is very sincere and kindhearted. I want to be more like her.

At her baptism is was SO beautiful! Her husband was able to baptize her. And on Sunday he was able to confirm her also.

They both shared their testimonies at her baptism. Her husband Adan had shared how he had been praying their whole marriage for the day that his wife could be baptized. He got very emotional when he expalined that everything is in Gods timing. We dont always get what we want, exactly when we want it.

And when Mayra shared her testimony she talked about how she knew for these things to be true. And then when she makes a decision in her life, is because she means it. And she talked about entering the temple, AHHH!!!  :)

I hope that I can return to the mission in a year to be a witness of their special day all 5 in white!!!  :D

I love you all, I know that God has a plan for each one of us. A specail plan or how we can find a greater level of Hapiness through obedience.

Love Always,
