Baptism of Briggitte
Well, it's been a pretty good week. No complaints on my part. First off, Erick is an investigator whose baptismal date fell through a few weeks ago. Honestly, what really was missing was teaching him well the plan of salvation. We never really had the chance to do so before, because we only really knew him by way of Briggitte, a recent convert. We had basically been teaching him according to what we needed to teach Briggitte or other family members that were in different stages in the teaching process, so we were glad to really have a one on one (one on two) with him, teaching the plan of salvation. Erick is an adult, but young to be an orphan. We taught everything, including temple ordinances, which really interested him. We asked him, "Erick, what would you tell us if we told you that your family can continue being a family after this life?" He paused and smiled, and, to quote him, said "how cool." I don't know if there's a more exact translation for "que chevere." He told us at the end that he's going to get baptized this month, so we are planning the baptism for the 23rd.
