What a week - 16 Baptisms

Hola Familia,

Well it was a very interesting and really busy week. The week started off great. We were getting phone calls of missionaries super excited because they had baptismal dates with people for this weekend. We finished with 16 baptisms this week as a zone. It was amazing to see so many people in white clothes. We ended up having the baptisms after the last session of General Conference on Sunday. The whole stake comes here to see conference because they can't watch it on TVs. We ended up having a huge baptismal service. It was super cool. Everyone was super happy. There was just happiness in the air. Sunday night everyone was calling us and congratulating us for our hard work. President was really excited and we really had the best week out of all the mission. The next closest zone had 8 baptisms. We were really excited last night.

Plus we ended up having the baptism of J. J got baptized on Friday because the members that bring him to church couldn't come on Sunday. So we had the baptism on Friday. It was amazing. J came running into the church with the biggest grin on his face. He honestly couldn't sit still. He was bouncing all over the place. We had the primary do the whole baptismal service. The primary kids gave the talks, the prayers and the special musical numbers. It was such an spiritual experience. The kids are always really spiritual. After the baptism the spirit stayed in the room. The best part is that the lady who is legally in charge of J came to the baptism. Afterwards we asked her what she thought of the baptism. She just asked us what she needed to do to get baptized. We were really excited and now we are going to start to work more with her to help J to stay strong in the church.

So that is really how the week went. It was full of good news. Now comes the hard work of finding a lot of new investigators to keep things going. We have a lot of plans this week to have a lot of new investigators by the end of the week.

Well things are great here. Hot as usual. It is raining a little bit right now but it is still hot. I am getting a little lazy with the picture taking but I am really going to work on it this week. I promise. It seems like things are going good at home. I actually never had that 15 minutes program but I remember hearing about it. Kendal is already being a missionary. That is cool. Kylie is still Kylie. A super hero freak. Everyone told me that the new Captain America is really good. 

General Conference was really good. It was the first time that I watched it in spanish. The internet wasn't working well to watch it in english. I really enjoyed it. Especially the priesthood. It was amazing. There were a lot of great talks. I will have to start studying them here soon.
Well I love you guys and miss you guys a lot. It seems like everything is the same at home. Have a great week. Nos vemos!!

Pura Vida!!
