Keep pressing forward with faith.

I know that heavenly father knows of all the things we all need but he wants us to come unto him and ask him. As a missionary i feel like i have gone closer to my heavenly father , this mission has changed me and i know that i still have a lot to learn. I have been out for 5 months and i have let the savior transform me into a different person. I see life differently and i know that we all have to help each other endure to the end. Keep pressing forward with faith.
This week we had a baptism of a young girl that's 10 yrs old. She has been taught for awhile sense march but i know that the Lord has his timing for everyone. Being able to see her make that step was a great experience she really is fully converted and i know that she can make it to the temple one day and not settle for less. It was neat to see her family their and the support they had for her . She looked beautiful that following Sunday dressed in white, i know that the next time she will be dressed in white will be when she takes that step to go to the temple. She said that her life has been changed and i do believe that.

A spiritual experience that we had this week was being able to meet with a woman that never was interested. the Lord for sure has his timing. She is a less active woman that i met when i came out on march she never really wanted to come back to the church, until this week! She set an appointment  with us and  we came over and this woman has been through a lot and she was crying as soon as she opened the door. She looked at me and my companion in the eyes and said" how do you know that this church is true?" i felt the spirit so very strong as i testified to her of what i know and she was able to feel it as well. She asked everyone about the church if it was true and one thing that i realized that she hadn't asked her loving heavenly father as we invited her to ask, she knew that was the only way she could come to know for her self. I know God sent her to us on his timing and even though she is a member i know we can  help her get back into it. Some times in life we know not because we ask not. we need to take the time and plead with the Lord and to truly humble our selves. we are meeting with her this week and she has 4 kids and one of them wants to be baptized. the gospel brings eternal happiness and i know that there are many who are searching for that if we simply ask our father he will lead us to whatever thing he wants for us.
This next Saturday we are having another baptism of a young girl that is 8yrs old  she is amazing and its been a pleasure to be able to teach her. We are very excited to see her enter the waters of baptism as well. her mom is a convert and she a very strong in the church, and she is a wonderful mother that wants the best for her kids. We are also teaching her son he is10 yrs old and he will be getting baptized late august!
