Here is our new mission president and his wife with us at our zone conference. Welcome President & Sister Dibb!!
La Nostra Settimana (Our Week)--
Lilly, our beautiful Lilly, is baptized and a new, confirmed member of the church!! was one of the most uplifting days I've had yet. After she was baptized, she bore her testimony and shared that after knowing the church for 11 years, she knew it was time to get baptized about 3 weeks ago. She said that one night, she had had a dream where the Savior asked her, ''Lilly, will you be baptized now? It's time.'' She said that she would. A couple of days later was when Beuts and I felt this burning to just have a straight up lesson with her about baptism, where she simply accepted the invitation and date chosen! She was prepared, and Beuts and I were able to see that the Spirit had been prompting us to be bold and honest with her. And then to see her enter the waters of baptism, and make that covenant-- THAT's why people serve missions, she's absolutely radiant and I'm edified constantly by her! After her baptism, we went back and had refreshments! Kelum had come to her baptism too and the little shindig dopo (after), and my word, it was MAGICAL seeing him so integrated into the branch. Everyone was talking to him, putting their arms around him, it was Christmas. Naturally so, Saturday was the highlight of this week:)
p.s. I love you.
