One of our many breaks that we took as we hobbled on over to k-mart.
Waiting it out at k-mart until our ride could come.
On Monday, during district meeting, I taught about the importance of baptism. As I prepare for district trainings every Monday, I'm convinced that I get way more out of it than anybody in the district. In studying for it, I was reminded of how amazing baptism is. Baptism is more than just being dunked in water. It is the act of taking upon you the name of Christ. When I first got on my mission, I thought it was so cool how I could walk around The Bronx with Jesus Christ's name on my tag. We would walk on the subway and everybody would stare at our tag, wondering who we were. I'm realizing that I don’t need a tag to have Christ’s name because I was baptized at 8. I already took upon myself the name of Jesus Christ and every action I do should be a reflection of that. After I come home from my mission and I can't wear the tag anymore I will still have Jesus Christ's name scripted not on a tag, by on my character. I don't know... Maybe I make it sound cheesy but I thought it was cool.
Have a good week cholos.
