"I'm Like A Leaf On God's Tree"
This week we were able to see Zina and her daughter, Rafaela follow the example of Jesus Christ and be baptized. We were SO HAPPY for the decision that they had made. They were so very prepared and so willing to make any sacrifice possible to be baptized. They just radiated pure joy and they had the most genuine smiles on their faces as they came out of the water. After they were baptized, they were asked to share how they felt. Rafaela happily told us , "I feel like I am a leaf on God's tree and that I just want to make him happy". I died. She is nine and her sister Daiana who is 7, will be baptized in December when she turns 8. We love this family and I can say that they have changed my whole mission.
