I've spent a transfer and a half working with Arthur, and last Sunday (for like the 3rd time) we put a date on him. His baptism was to be the 13th of December. We followed up every day, brought members there, worked everything out so the baptism would be EXACTLY how he wanted it (Very few people and he wanted to be confirmed directly after the baptism, not in sacrament meeting) Which worked out because this Sunday was stake conference. WOO! Then...Saturday came and it didn't happen. We got super bummed out and super stressed...but we marked it again for Sunday the 14th.
On Sunday, I called him so much...I definitely felt like a crazy ex girlfriend. But we couldn't get a hold of him. But...we wanted a baptism, so we went to the church and got the font ready. While we were filling it, Arthur called and said that he wasn't sure, and that he was really scared. He wanted to wait for another day. But we said nooooooooo. And he said FINE, then it has to be right now. I´m on my way.
Needless to say, we were ecstatic, especially because he didn't even give certainty that he´d be baptized on Sunday..but we were prepared and it happened! Now he can enter the kingdom of God! We are beyond happy!!
We also have an investigator named Isaac. He wants so badly to be baptized. We contacted him in the street and he didn't want anything...but he went to church all by himself and now he wants to be baptized. The problem is that he needs to get married. The woman he lives with has been wanting to get married to him for 20 years, but he´d never agreed. and now that HE wants to, she doesn't. Satan, right? Gracious. She won´t even let us talk to her and she won´t sign the papers. But we´re working and fighting for it! So if you guys could pray for her to have an open heart, that would be AWESOME.
I love you all, thanks for all the support!!
