My zone leader wanted everyone who was finishing the mission to baptize this last Saturday. We had an investigator who could do it if we could get her excited to be baptized. So the Elders came to work with usand Elder Garcia got her to say yes!! So exciting!! the sad thing is that the rest of the week we could not find her..... night we were able to find her and she told us that her dad would not give her permission until she turned 18. We were a little sad because we had hoped for a baptism to end our time together....but we trust the Lord. he knows when and why. He knows when these people will really be ready. And he knews what we can handle and what we need to learn!!! Maybe I had different things to learn than baptizing 100s of people!!
I am so eternally grateful to my Heavenly Father for calling me to serve a mission. It has been the hardest thing I have done in my life...but I have learned so much and forever changed my life. I hope you are ready to see the new Sariah!!!! I have grown to love the Lord and this Gospel more than I ever have. I have learned to appreciate the Atonement and apply it to my own life. I have learned to love God's children a little like he does. I have a firm knowledge that God loves each and every one of us and that he cares so much for us and our happiness. I know that He has a perfect plan for me and for all of you!!! It is hard sometimes, and we fall sometimes, but He will not leave us alone, he is always with us to encourage us and help us feel his love. I know that we are in the truth!!!! And I am so grateful for that!!! I know that we have prophets and the authority to perform ordinances and make covenants so that we can make it back to him someday!!! I know that Jesus came to earth and suffered and died for us. And I know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God. It has changed my life and I have seen how it has changed the lives of so many other people!!!!
There is a lot more that I have learned!!! But that is just a little bit. I know that the real test will be living the things taht I learned after the mission. But I am grateful to all of you for all of your support and love!! I couldn't have done it without you!!!! I hope you know how much I love you all!! I am excited to see you!!!
Thank you again!!! I sure love all of you!!!!
With all my love,
Hermanita Morey :)
