It was really amazing being able to baptize Roland this week and give him the gift of the Holy Ghost. It was so cool and almost unreal at the same time; it is an experience that I will never forget. It was a really great baptismal service and hopefully it was able to strengthen Roland's testimony and we're excited to see him grow in the gospel. It was an amazing feeling knowing that this young boy was making a covenant with God, and that because of his decision to follow the example of Jesus Christ by being baptized he will be able to make it back to return to live with Him someday. I am so excited to be able to give this opportunity to other people and to other families as well and it just makes me want to work harder to find and teach all those people that the Lord is preparing for us on a daily basis. We are going to keep on trying to get Roland's mom involved the best we can and hope that in the near future she will also want to enter the waters of baptism so that she can also receive eternal life. This is such an amazing work that we are involved in and it brings so much joy! The confirmation the next day also went really well and a member from the Stake was actually there so that was a bit scary, haha.
We were also able to go on splits this last week in Tatabánya. I was with Elder Willes from California. We also had interviews this last week and it was really great being able to speak with President and hear his advice for how I can improve and be better.
It was a really cool week and I am so grateful for Roland and his desire to follow Christ! Now let’s do it some more!
