Week 74 Letter August 11, 2014

Week 74
Hello Family!
Well another week has gone by and we had another baptism! Arturo was baptized on Saturday, Now the whole family is together in the church.  Miriam, Mariane, and Kevin all gave their testimonies.  It was a very sincere spiritual experience.  I was able to do the baptism.  It had been a while since I myself had done a baptism.  Actually, the last one I did was Mariane.  It was really cool to see the entire family sitting together in the church on Sunday.

Well, we had another really busy and crazy week.  Not only did we have the baptism but on Friday we also had a zone activity.  The President came and taught us then we played soccer and volleyball together.  I actually played on the President’s team which was a lot of fun.  We also made hamburgers.  Elder Castaneda’s family own two burger joints and he had been working there since he was 12 so he made some really good burgers.  It was a lot of fun to spend some time with the President and the zone.

Paul and his family are progressing really quickly.  They all want to be baptized and we are planning a baptismal service for them on the 30th of August.  The only issue really will be Paul’s health.  This week he couldn’t go to church because he had to go to the hospital yesterday.  Hopefully he will feel well enough soon.  Pretty much once he is healthy enough he will get baptized.  I hope I will be here for his baptism.

Well, yesterday was a really cool sacrament meeting.  First of all, Arturo was confirmed a member of the church and then all of the talks were given by my converts.  Anabella, Fredy, and Miriam gave talks.  It was really cool to see that.  Anabella has a super great testimony.  I am excited to see what callings they are going to get.

Well that’s all for this week.  Talk to you all the next.
