Let´s just start with the most important things that happened this week. Some one was born #Oliver #SouTia! #sobrinho
And someone was born again! #batismo
Today just as I was waking up as missionaries do...(and we normally don't get up dancing and singing so you can probably imagine).. 6:30.
A few minutes later... the phone buzzes. Oo a message. What could it be? Presidente Cruz. uh oh What could it be??
"Dear Sister Hemmert (Hermet haha oh presidente). Yesterday your Sister had her baby and it looks like everyone is well. According to your family, everyone is happy. Congratulations!"
The world became a better place when my nephewzinho was born! He is the most perfect and pure creature I have ever seen and I'm sooo excited to hold him!!
This week we also had a baptism!! Woohoo! Patrick was baptized this saturday! He invited allllll of his friends and his family! There were so many youth! It was so cool. It is with moments like these that I can see the Lord raising His children. Raising a generation resistant to sin. I feel very grateful that I can play a part in this act and be a part of this generation.
I know that I have more to say but I have a desire to just stare at photos of my nephew, deciding which ones I'll print out. I think that I just print... all of them! So I'm going to end here with a testimony and video that Sister Cruz showed us the other day.
A Brand New Ending
As he explains in the video. We were not made to stay on the ground. We were not made to be just mortal, just organic material. As we can see, just from yesterday we were made for something more.
I witnessed the brand new life of a young man starting this week and the life a little baby too.
The Lord made us so that we could live forever. A baby arrived from the presence of the Lord and a son of God entered the waters of baptism and, born again, is ready and working and living to enter the presence of God again.
I know that this church is true. It is the Lord's Kingdom that I wait on and serve in and know, with every fiber of my person,that these things are true.
60 For by the water ye keep the commandment; by the Spirit ye are justified, and by the blood ye are sanctified;61 Therefore it is given to abide in you; the record of heaven; the Comforter; the peaceable things of immortal glory; the truth of all things; that which quickeneth all things, which maketh alive all things; that which knoweth all things, and hath all power according to wisdom, mercy, truth, justice, and judgment.62 And now, behold, I say unto you: This is the plan of salvation unto all men, through the blood of mine Only Begotten, who shall come in the meridian of time.63 And behold, all things have their likeness, and all things are created and made to bear record of me, both things which are temporal, and things which are spiritual; things which are in the heavens above, and things which are on the earth, and things which are in the earth, and things which are under the earth, both above and beneath: all things bear record of me.
With all my love I testify,
