A Lot Of Things Happened This Week!

May 25, 2015

Dear Family & Friends,

This week was awesome! A lot of things happened this week.

Our investigators are doing great still. We are trying really hard to get them to be baptized. We have so many cool people we are teaching and who are ready they just are being stubborn about accepting a date and just doing it. Hopefully soon we can get them to receive that confirmation from Heavenly Father that it is time to make this step in their lives.

Earlier this week I did an ice cream eating challenge against Elder Saia. We both put down a half a gallon. I finished first though so that's all that matters ;) Vale la pena (Worth it).

We had a really good family home evening with Zaira, Eloisa, and Flora on Thursday. We watched the movie the testaments. It was funny Zairas son Ethan was just leaning back kicking his feet up on the chair. It was so funny. They all really liked it. We tried ending the lesson with our testimonies but Ethan started crying and it was really distracting so we just kind of ended the lesson. We are going to see them this week and try to get them back on date for June.
Angelica Baptism for Sisters
I got to baptize one of the Sisters investigators named Angelica. I gave her the baptismal interview and after she told the sisters that she wanted me to baptize her. It was a really cool experience! She was nervous that she was going to slip and fall and also that the mirror above the font was going to fall down. Hah, we reassured her that it wouldn't. After the baptism she was smiling from ear to ear! It was so cool. And her family was really happy too! Hopefully they follow her example too.

We have been biking a lot and seeing lots of miracles happen from it. I love being able to stop and talk to people in the streets. We have had some pretty crazy things happen. The other day we contacted a guy picking up his mail. His name was Jesus. He invited us into his house and gave us some water. Then we got talking about the plan of salvation and turns out he is a really cool guy and he invited us to come back next week. We have a really good feeling about him and his family.

Anyway everything is going good here in Sacramento.

Love you all!!!
