Eric and Deva’s Baptism!!

21 04 2016

What a great week! My testimony in the power of priesthood blessings grew, Eric was baptized, Deva was baptized, and Kobe scored 60 points in the final game of his NBA career. #BlackMamba

Earlier this week I started to feel sick. It hit me like ton of bricks one night and I was not very happy. I knew exactly what it was because I had felt it about 2 months ago in Lake Elsinore and it lasted for about 2 weeks…. I remember writing to you all about how stubborn I was in asking for a priesthood blessing. Well I learned my lesson:) I asked for a blessing the next night instead of being prideful and waiting two weeks. GUESS WHAT! The Priesthood is real and blessings really do work! It’s true, I checked! I was fine just two days after initially feeling sick. It’s soooo much easier that way.

Eric! Eric was baptized this past sunday. He had a pretty interesting story. When we first started meeting with Eric, he told us he was meeting with us as a favor to a friend. To make a long story short, the gospel is true! There is a real converting power that comes as we live the gospel of Jesus Christ.

17 If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself..

If you are not sure if this message is true, just do it with a sincere heart and feel your heart change! Although his initial desires may not have been the most sincere, he did have other desires that were sincere. He really did feel a difference when we met with him. When he read the Book of Mormon. When he came to church. When he prayed to his Father in Heaven. As a result, Eric has now entered in at the gate.

DEVA! What a story. She was the best friend of Jessica Betancourt. I remember the very first time we met with Deva. She was pretty stubborn… But I also remember walking away from the lesson feeling that she would get baptized one day. Deva’s courage and faith is an example to me. As she began to live the gospel she felt something that she could not deny. Even though her family had strong concerns about her joining the gospel of Christ, she chose to act on the feelings and impressions that God had given her. And now she has a large church family to support her!

The gospel is so true! God lives! He loves us so much! He will always take care of His children. Jesus Christ is our Savior! He is the Savior of the world but He is also our own personal Savior. He knows everything we go through. Living the Gospel doctrines and principals will change you and bring a new light into your life.

Have a blessed week! Love you all!
