April 14, 2015 - Last Day in Chula Vista

We had a fantastic week this last week! Elder Quiñonez and I have been having a blast! 

Highlight of the week was Friday! We had a triple baptismal service, sooo sick! 

Our investigator Yolanda was baptized along with the sister's investigator Junior and the other elders investigator Maria, who's the sweetest grandma. We love her! Anyway those three got baptized, and the baptismal service was awesome! 

Saturday I went on an exchange with Elder Brandner out in his area, that was super fun! We met their investigator and he committed to be baptized on the 25th. He's a 16 year old young man who's mom and stepdad are members and he's been meeting with the missionaries. He had been deciding between the church his dad goes to, and the church his mom goes to (our church). Recently he's had a couple of key spiritual experiences with the missionaries, and he's been more open and excited. We had a sweet lesson. We had no idea what we were going to teach, but we went in and asked some good questions and were able to teach to his needs. It's so fun when the spirit takes over. We talked about baptism, he's been invited countless times, but he finally accepted and is going to prepare for the 25th! 

Sunday was a really stressful day, but also super sweet! We confirmed the 3 new members. We had ward members confirm ours and I confirmed the sisters investigator Junior. I was asked to give a talk in sacrament meeting this week, so I gave that, in Spanish. It was about the atonement. While I was preparing I found an awesome talk by Elder McConckie. It's called "The Purifying Power of Gethsemane" And I loved it, so I sort of based my talk on that and one by Elder Bednar.  

For Sunday School the Gospel Principles teacher never showed up, so Elder Quiñonez and I taught that, without any preparation, but it went pretty good. Luckily priesthood meeting was relaxing... then we went to dinner at bishop's house and we had a fireside with all the people from Imperial Beach too. President even came. It was a great fireside about Christ, with testimonies shared by a few members. 

Also- Last night we got transfer calls. I'm out! No idea where I'm going, so I'll have some news for you when I email you next p-day! 

There's Elder McConkie's talk
