"It has been another wonderful week here with Hermana Rhodes. Every day I thank the Lord for this precious time I get to have with her. We are really enjoying the work here. We are preparing for the baptism of our friend Fernando this upcoming Saturday. It has been a battle for him, but just like we are promised, he has been reading, praying, and coming to church diligently. He has truly experienced a change of heart that is humbling to watch. He bore his testimony of The Book of Mormon to our recent convert (of 3 weeks) Gicela....it was kind of backward to see the baptismal candidate uplifting the member, but is was a powerful testimony. It amazes me that although he can be so busy with work he always makes time for the Lord and us and it has only brought him miracles."
May 13th Letter Excerpt from Megan:
"Highlight of the week: Fernando coming out of the water at his baptism, he gave the Elder who baptized him a hug and then turned and looked at everyone and said "thanks for coming!" it was really sweet. He looked happy."
