Me, Brian, the Caligaroli Family and Elder Ward

Hola! Este semana fue locaso, pero terminò bien de bien.

This week was great! It was full of up and downs, but it finished on a high note. We had lot’s of preparation for the baptisms on Saturday. Luckily, everything went great!! Familia Caligaroli and Brian were baptized on Saturday and confirmed members of the church on Sunday. I had the opportunity to baptize Brian. Luckily, I have been doing my exercises, so I didn`t leave him underwater. Haha. Actually, he said that I left him under longer than the other people. We told him that was because I was making sure he was really clean. Haha. 
Finding and teaching these wonderful converts has been an amazing experience and it goes to show that the Lord is always preparing people who are ready to listen and receive the gospel. 

Also this week, Elder Ward and I were walking around and we planned on passing by a members house to coordinate the baptismal service. She wasn`t home, so we turned around with like no plans...Then, we felt that we should pass a contact that lived close. We went to her house and when we knocked, she pulled out some chairs and started talking with us. We taught her the restoration and invited her to be baptized. She accepted and committed to read the Book of Mormon and pray about it. She was able to go to church this Sunday. It is quite a miracle, because we didn`t even plan on passing by her house and we didn`t think that we were going to be in the area. I am glad that my companion and I were able to receive the prompting to pass by her house and teach her.

That about sums up my week. Haha.
I love you guys!
