August 9, 2011

BAPTISM THIS WEEK! Maria Luisa Gordillo. She heard the missionaries for the first time 8 years ago, started listening to them seriously about 2 years ago, and for some reason finally decided that baptism was something that she wanted.  BOO-YAH! And now we're teaching her sister sho just moved here from New Jersey just in time to go to the baptism. Things are looking pretty dang awesome.
Not much else of note this week. We had a really awesome zone meeting things yesterday. We got to hear from a member of the General Authority 70's. Elder Malm. (sp?) That was really refreshing, and got everybody pretty excited for the work again.
Just one story to share this week. In one of the Spanish wards this week, a group of about 10 little kids wearing little black tags that said "Futuro Misionero" (future missionary) got up and sang "Somos del ejercito de Helaman" (We are as the army of Helaman).  It was INCREDIBLE! They sang with GUMPTION as Kimberly would say. It made me realize how much people really look up to the missionaries. I just kinda feel like a normal guy preaching the Gospel sometimes, but it's nice to be reminded that the kids really are watching, and that they are really excited for their day to come.  Kinda puts things in perspective a little bit.
Alright, that's all I got for this week
Love to all!
Elder Williams
