The Joy of Missionary Work

Marleni's Baptism

"So the highlight of the week was that Marleni got baptized!  She was going to get baptized on the 8th, but her mom told her that if she got baptized she would get kicked out of the family.  On the 20th she told us that she was going to get baptized for sure on the 29th.  We asked her what her mom thought about it and she said that she doesn't know, she said she will tell her mom later.  It was so great to see Marleni's faith.  She knows that this is the true church and she wasn't going to let anything stop her from receiving her baptism."

Let The Spirit Guide You

Which bell should we ring?

Who is ready to hear our message?

I know someone in there wants to listen to us...

I'll just choose them all, and someone will let us in!
