Dear family and friends,
This last week has flown by absolutely fast! I can´t even believe the transfer is almost over! We have 3 baptisms coming up this saturday which is really exciting! Noberto is one who we have been teaching and he is a capo! He has read all the way up through the book of Jacob in the Book of Mormon in the 2 weeks that we have taught him! He is an older guy about 63 years old and he has lived a pretty crazy life before! He rides motorcycles too which is way cool! These other two are younger kids that are really good friends with some members! We invited them before and they didn´t want to but then we had a miracle happen that they accepted a baptismal date for this saturday so we are preparing them to be baptized on that day! Anyways it has been a great week! It flew by way too fast honestly! I want to share my testimony since it was fast and testimony meeting this last sunday.
I know that this church is true and that it is the only church that has the restored priesthood of God to do a baptism. Without baptism no one can enter into the kingdom of heaven it is absolutely essencial and neccessary to be able to return to our Father in Heaven. I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God that he really did see the Father and His Son. Only through the Savior and His gospel and His church we can be able to return to the Father. I really know this is true and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is His church. Only through this church can one find the true and only baptism that Christ showed us by example. I know these things to be true and I can´t deny them, though I may be imperfect nothing can shake that faith and that knowledge that I have. I know in my heart that these things are true. This is my testimony of baptism and the Priesthood and I know these things are true and I share them in the name of Jesus Christ. Amén.
Anyways it has been a ton of fun to be a missionary! I have enjoyed it so much and I can´t believe I all ready have a little over a year doing it! Anyays love you all and I hope you have an awesome week ahead! Can´t wait to talk more next week!
Love Elder Orr
