Well, as you can see Claudia was baptized this weekend! I really am so happy for her and for her family! It was quite the process to get here to this point, but it was all worth it!
At her baptism, I learned an important lesson. We actually were not sure if she was going to get baptized this weekend or not, so we didn't tell or invited anyone until after her interview on Thursday. Her interview went a lot better that we had expected and she was much more prepared that we thought so we decided to go ahead and have it this weekend! We found ourselves with a problem because suddenly we had a baptism in two days and we didn't have anyone attending, speaking or doing anything!
There was no program or preparation.....nothing....
Saturday we found ourselves inviting every random person we could find and asking other missionaries to bear their testimonies and such. I was so stressed out and then the thought came to me, "what are you freaking out about? these things aren't even important. She is making a covenant with Gad, that is what's important." I didn´t realize it then, but I'm pretty sure that was the Spirit telling me to take a chill pill. It was so true. We were worried about every little detail, except for the one that mattered most. I feel like we do that a lot of times in life. We worry about every other little thing, except for what really matters. Claudia most likely wont remember who said what at her baptism or who was there, she is only going to remember how she felt. That is what matters.
So folks, take a chill pill. Don´t stress about the little stuff. Focus on the important things, and do what you need to do to accomplish them. Much easier said than done, but it will put things into perspective!
Hope you all enjoyed General Conference! How blessed we are to have a Prophet and Apostles to guide us to Eternal Life!
Have a lovely week!
