What an awesome week! Our investigator, Atin was baptized this week and it was a miracle. Atin has been an investigator for just about 2 years now, her whole family is Muslim, and getting baptized has been a really hard decision for her. We gave her this week as a goal to be baptized and on Friday night she called off the baptism. This weekend is a big weekend for the Muslim people because they are getting ready their big fast and Atin felt like she needed to go home on Saturday night until Monday to help her family prepare . She has waited for a really long time to be baptized and so many dates have fallen through and my companion and I just knew that this week she needed to be baptized. Sister Toegono and I went to her work on Saturday afternoon and read a few scriptures with her that were really powerful. A scripture came to my mind to share with her in Alma 7:15 
"Yea, I say unto you come and fear not, and lay aside every sin,which easily doth beset you, which doth bind you down to destruction, yea, come and go forth, and show unto your God that ye are willing to repent of your sins and enter into a covenant with him to keep his commandments, and witness it unto him this day by going into the waters of baptism."
We invited her come and fear not. We also invited her to pray right then and ask Heavenly Father to help her to know what she needed to do. Right then her phone rang and it was her brother who called to say that it was no problem if she didn't come home this weekend! It was such a cool experience. The spirit was so strong at her baptism, all the members love her and have been so supportive since she started learning with the missionaries. They were all so happy to see her be baptized! She is going to be an awesome member! God is a god of miracles, He will show us miricles as we put faith in Him! So much happened this week, but I don't have a lot of time so I will explain more about our other investigators next week! Also, we went to a members house this week and I was playing the guitar with them and then on Sunday one of the brothers brought one of his guitars to church for me to take to our house and play, it was awesome! So our house has been playing the guitar and singing together, it's been fun! I love youuuu!
