***************************************************************************************************************** Hola, This week was great. On tuesday we had divisions. I had one of the leaders with me on this day. I learned a lot from him. He really knows how to teach and how to bring people to Christ. I was able to learn from him in many different ways. We were able to talk with V on this day. She got really emotional as she explained to us that M had left her and that she was jobless and had no way to pay for food or anything. We talked to her about why the Lord gives us trials. We also received 2 referrals from a member and were able to teach them with the member. Wednesday we went with V again and put a date for her baptism for saturday. She accepted. We began talking about how the baptism would work and any questions she had. After we went and taught the T Family. The dad is a "fighter" and had been baptized about 30 years ago but went inactive. We were able to share a message with them about the Atonement. They accepted it pretty well. Thursday we had divisions again. I went to another area to teach with another missionary. With the help of the Lord we were able to find 2 new investigators for them within an hour. We had the interview for the baptism of V and also a couple other things to prepare for the Baptism of V. On Friday we did all of the final things for the Baptism of V. We got the white baptism suit, and talked with the bishop to make sure all of the details were set and all was ready for the baptism. He told us that everything was ready and that we just need to show up at 2 on Saturday for the baptism. We also went and talked with V a little bit to see if she had any final questions. She told that M had come that day and that he wanted to return. She told M that she couldn't do that because she was going to be baptised the next day and that it is against the rules of the church to live together without being married. It was cool to hear her confidence and desire to be a member of the church. On Saturday we had the Baptism of V. It was cool to see her be cleaned of all. It was kind of wierd to think that I had a part in helping her become a member. One of the members at the baptism was able to tell her that there is a job that she can have is she wanted. She gladly accepted. On Sunday she received the Holy Ghost and was confirmed a member of the church. What a cool experience to be part of. I know that this is the true church and that it is the only way back to Heaven and to happiness and eternal life. I hope all continues to go well for you all. Les amo, Elder Corbin
