I Invited Someone To Be Baptized... and they said yes.
Tonight I went out with the Elders and we went to a members house for dinner. It was so good!. It was pinto beans and a meat and potato mixture with tortillas Yummmmmm. I love eating Mexican food from real Mexicans. After that we went to there apartment where we were waiting for Samuel and his wife. We were going to teach them at the temple. Tonight they were going to invite Samuel to be baptized. Earlier that day I was playing volleyball at the church and Elder Perry called me, he said "Joseph you still on for tonight," I told him that I was. He said "Okay tonight we are going to invite Samuel to be baptized and we need you to memorize the baptismal invitation in Spanish and give it to him tonight. I said I would and all that day I was memorizing. So now back to the temple. They were talking with him in Spanish and I was trying to pick up on some stuff. Then Elder Perry asked me to give the invitation. Samuel and his wife spoke English and Spanish but Elder Perry asked me to do it in Spanish so I said. "Will you follow the example of Jesus Christ by being baptized by someone holding the Priesthood authority of God." He said yes. It was awesome. My first invitation and he said yes. The spirit was way strong and I was super happy to be apart of that. And that is just another day for A Boy In The Mission Field.
