68th Week Out, Week 16 Mondubim, "I'm now 20 years old!"

Elder Horton 20 Years Old
Dear family and friends, this week was another great week, well I'm now 20 years old! No longer a teenager! My birthday was June the 2ndand it was a great day sister Andrews and my companion threw a surprise birthday lunch for me. On my Birthday, we also stopped by a girl named Yasmine, 19 years of age, who I hadn’t passed by for over 2 months ago when I was with Elder Crispim. My companion ever since he got here wanted to pass by and met her but I would always tell him “nah man she’s not interested with our message anymore…” But this day MY BIRTHDAY I felt prompted to pass by her, and basically this happened: she had been praying and praying this day for Heavenly Father to guide her with what she needs to do with her life and the EXACT moment she said “Amen” guess who was calling her at her front door? Elder Horton and Elder Anastacio!!! It answered her prayer, she told us she already knew before that this church was true but lacked courage to follow her answer, and heavenly father guided us to her. We invited her to be baptized that very night on my birthday! She was baptized that night! That was by far the very best gift I could have received on my birthday was to see the Joy of this young woman! 

We had 2 more Baptisms Sunday 1 was for a girl named Leticia 15 years of age she is the sister of Hebert and Leandro who were baptized last week! And on top of that the parents of Leticia, Leandro, and Hebert; Michel and Magna came to church this week with Leticia to be there for her baptism and they loved church and we sat down with them and the bishop @ church this Sunday and this family decided that they would like to get married and also be baptized as well! So now we have 3 families preparing to be married and baptized! Our 3rd baptism was for a man named Jailson 29 years of age. He is the brother of Jean who was baptized 2 weeks ago. Jailson had a problem with smoking so we gave him a blessing that his desire to smoke would go away and We bought him a box of chocolate and we told him every time he has a desire to smoke a cigarette, eat a chocolate and he hasn’t smoked since! My Recent Convert Clayton who is preparing to serve a mission baptized Jailson! Miracles still happen and they happen because this TRULY is the church of our savior Jesus Christ! I get to see them EVERYDAY! I Love this work, the lords work not my work, and I’m simply an instrument in his hands. I know that the lord is blessing me truly. I love you all and I thank you for all your love and support!
