Hey All!

I hope this letter reaches all of you in good form, as I am pleased to announce, even though there was TONS of opposition, Débora is safely baptized and confirmed a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

We woke up the morning of, and Hermana Araya and I had a similar feeling that with all the problems that Presidente had, that we should call for backup priesthood, and asked two elders to come from Posadas to support us. At the end, we were short one witness, which Elder Blacker, very happily filled for us.

The baptism, all in all, was AWESOME, and the spirit was super strong, as if to testify to the importance of the baptism and also to testify that all was well, and that she really was ready and worthy.

Eventually, we want to reactivate her family and get them to the temple, and her whole family was there to watch, and I know that the baptism touched every single one of them, a strong motivation to start making some major changes. A really awesome way to get the ball rolling.

Many might ask, why did we baptize her to put her in such a volatile environment… Well, for two reasons, one because she deserves the Celestial Kingdom just as much as the next person, and its not her fault she was born in Ituzaingó, and two, because she will need the Holy Ghost more than ever to keep on enduring to the end. I know we did the right thing, and the Holy Ghost testified of it too.

The next day, in church, she was to be confirmed, and someone higher-up sent us a high-councilor stake representative, and his ex stake president, ex mission president Dad. Now, whenever there are stake representatives, things always seem to go smoother in the Sunday meetings… someone to keep in check the Presidente, but yesterday it was even more awesome because the ex stake president, ex mission president, Hermano Romero, keeps everyone on their toes. They say the only ones who don´t fear him are the missionaries.

But he did the confirmation of Débora, a really fortunate thing. Because everything ended with her being confirmed a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day saints by a man who´s word is pretty much law around these parts.

I am realatively calm, as opposed to before when I was a nervous wrecking ball, but now the hard work begins… reactivating a family thats been inactive on and off for fourteen years. But if we can do it, it will be living proof that miracles do happen.

I am gonna need all your prayers for that one.

Love you tons,
Hermana Sarah Tritsch
