Open Our Mouths!

Hey Family,
Happy St. Patricks Day.... lol i didnt even know it was St. Patricks Day... i know what a loser.. but nobody here celebrates that...=(
i really haven't heard much of the tsunami that hit japan, but it truly is sad to hear...  im glad to hear that all the Takahashi family is okay...
mom thats exciting that your starting camp kick off...=) just don't get stressed out...lol
well Exciting news, Alicia and Victor were baptized yesterday. i baptized Alicia and elder Smyth baptized Victor. they are so happy and grateful for the gospel and the change it has made in their life.... they were also accompanied with their daughter Ericka, her husband Cesar and their twins , their son Victor went, also their neighbors Monica and Eduardo who we are also teaching went as well. they all really liked it. the ward did a really good job in befriending them. I'm pretty sure we will be seeing all of them in the waters of baptism soon.=)
I was just thinking the other day, that all of this was able to happen just by opening our mouth. about 3 weeks ago we contacted a lady named Mirium while walking, she gave us her direction to be able to teach her another day. we went to her house but she wasn't there so we decided to contact her neighbors and that's when we saw victor cutting the tree... i know it wasn't just for luck we found them.. they were prepared to hear this message, and by opening our mouth we were able to help them come unto Christ and not only them but their family and friends too. what a beautiful work.
the only thing that bugs me is many people think its just the missionaries job to talk to the people about the gospel. and they're absolutely wrong, as members we are all responsible to share the gospel. when we were baptized we took upon ourselves the name of Christ. which means we are disciples of him. in Preach My Gospel it talks about how the members should find, and the missionaries should teach and prepare them for baptism. Members are like undercover missionaries.lol and people aren't going to run from you when they see you on the street. i am really glad to hear mom and dad that you guys are helping out alot in the missionary work... I'm proud of you guys...=)
oh and thanks for sending me money for shoes... i much appreciate it....lol ill have to show you my other ones when i get home....
well i hope you have a great week... love you all...
