SISTER JOHNSON'S JANUARY 19, 2015 E-MAIL
Thias and Sister Orantes
Sorry I don't have much time today
so it will be a little short!!
This past week was amazing!! Thias'
baptism was yesterday!!!!! It was soooo beautiful and she was so happy and
overwhelmed. She is seriously a miracle and one of the greatest blessings I've
seen on my mission, and no doubt one of the reasons I came on a mission. Geoff
baptized her and said the baptism prayer in Portuguese!
On Friday Sister Orantes and I had
to do apartment inspections for the sisters in the VC....so after a long hard
day of inspecting and cleaning, we treated to ourselves to some yummy food!
(Nations = delish burgers)
Alicia is a member who helped teach Thais.
She speaks was able to teach Thias in Portuguese.
The Bezerkeley YSA Ward

many blessings from the Lord! Love you all!!
