Will there be more winter or not??
It was a pretty good week, although I am pooped. Really. We spent a lot of the week just contacting and talking to people and just getting rejected basically. BUT! We do have one person who is really interested and wants to get to know the church and wants her husband to listen to this message too! Her kids were super excited when we got to their house and we didn´t exactly teach a lesson, but talked about the church and just testified and it was super cool!
We are also (finally) teaching a man named Jorge. He is the "boyfriend" of a member of the branch and has come to church in the past, but did not want to listen to us. But this past week he decided that he wanted to listen and now he wants to get baptized!! He has a date for the 14th of February. haha and it is going to be awesome!!
This past saturday, the branch also had a baptism! :) I had the opportunity to baptize Jonathon, the son of alexandra, who was baptized about a month and a half ago. Jonathon only has one leg, so elder etcheverrito helped me baptize and support him. It was way cool and WAY spiritual!
Today we went and visited the Arch Angel that protects Ibarra. It was pretty cool, and we could see all of Ibarra. It was pretty neat!
I started reading the Book of Mormon again this week, and it is such an amazing and special opportunity that we have to have this book and to be able to know that it is true! The Book of Mormon is super powerful and gives us peace and happiness in our lives if we are willing to read with an open mind and apply its teachings!
I love you all and am grateful for your prayers and thoughts on my behalf.
Love, Elder Parker
