Ndola, Zambia


Elder Baptista

Week 15 in Ndola. Beauty was baptized on her 18th Birthday.

​Hey everyone!! I hope all is well back home!

This week was a wonderful week for not only me and my comp Elder Baptista, but actually for the whole District. This week our District had 4 baptisms and confirmations. The work is definitely moving here in Ndola!

So the highlights for this week. On Wednesday we put our investigator Agnes Chama on date for May 5th and she seems to be pretty committed. We are excited about her.

On Thursday this week we had exchanges with the other Elders that stay in our flat. So I took Elder Lesu with me to our area and we had a very successful day together. We taught 5 powerful lessons that day and it really was a good experience for me to teach with Elder Lesu and she the potential he has to be a great missionary. Together we were able to put another one of our investigators, Hope, on date for May 5th as well. It was a really good lesson taught from the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the Spirit was felt as we sat outside a small phone booth on the dusty ground.

On Friday I was able to preform 4 baptismal interviews. 3 were for the Zone Leaders in Luanshya and 1 was for the Sisters in Town. All of their candidates passed the interview. After all of that we drove out to my area and the Zone Leaders were able to interview our baptismal candidate Beauty Mendlul. She passed the interview and was very excited for her upcoming baptism.

Saturday is when Beauty Mendlul was able to enter the waters of baptism. I had the wonderful opportunity of being able to baptize her. The baptismal trough was filled up very high which made the baptism very easy which was nice for me haha! Saturday also happened to be Beauty's 18th Birthday as well so it was a special day indeed. I couldn't think of a better birthday gift for her other than baptism. That being said we did think of another gift haha because we baked her a cake to help her celebrate.

Sunday my companion Elder Baptista was able to confirm Beauty as a member of the Church and give her the Gift of the Holy Ghost. After which Beauty bore a wonderful testimony. Sunday was a good day for us because we also had 5 investigators at church. All of them have a lot of potential to become members of the church. We truly felt blessed.

Well all in all this was a great week! I truly feel blessed to be serving here in the Ndola District of the Great Zambia Lusaka Mission!! I hope you all have a great week. Until next week that's a wrap. Sending love from Africa!!
