Guatemala City North Mission

...let us labor diligently: for if we should cease to labor, we should be brought under condemnation for we have a labor to perform whilst in this tabernacle of clay, that we may conquer the enemy of all righteousness, and rest our souls in the kingdom of God. Moroni 9:6

Ye have entered into a Covenant

On Aug 22 we had one of the most memorable events of our mission. We traveled to Senahú and there another 2 hour drive high into the mountains to witness 11 people enter into a baptismal covenant surrounded by some of the most beautiful country on this continent. As we descended to the place of the baptism the rains sprinkled us on our journey. As soon as we arrived the rains ceased and the sun shone adding light to illuminate the radiant feeling we felt in our hearts as we witnessed a scene that could have taken place thousands of years previous, in that same beautiful site.
"Now I say unto you, if this be the desire of your hearts, what have you against being baptized in the name of the Lord, as a witness before him that ye have entered into a covenant with him, that ye will serve him and keep his commandments, that he may pour out his Spirit more abundantly upon you? " Mosiah 18:10

I enjoy your photo galleries very much. Especially this latest one. I served in Senahu in 1989 when the area of Chijolom was first visited, and many baptisms resulted.
Best regards,
