MISSION FIELD: Week 78 What A Good Week!

                                                          10 Nov 2014

     OK, so this week was full of tender mercies of the Lord.

     So, I will talk about some of them.  First, was that we had President Mathews and his wife come and visit us here on Maio.  Super nice!  We had interviews with him and learned a little bit more about what we can do better at and then, they left back for Praia.   The week went on and we couldn't find Cisse, who was going to be baptized on Saturday.  Then, Saturday afternoon he calls us and says, 'Elder, when am I getting baptized!?'  We were like, 'What the heck, is this real!?'  So, we talked to him and he was already had the interview, and he was baptized on Sunday morning in the ocean.  The baptism in itself is a story.

   We had one of Cisse friends do the baptism.   Well, he was super nervous.  THEN, he throws him in the water and just jumps away and says YESSSSS!!!  Well, we had to do it again and elder Camargo got in the water to help.  Ha ha!  It was super funny, so then after a few more time we got it.  All good, and then we all noticed that my name tag was gone.  Well the water took it and so we spent some time getting it.  So that was the best part of the week. 

    I hope you all know that miracles happen and that God loves us.

Elder Stratton
