(Excerpts from his email)
Maria got baptized. It was one of the weirdest and funniest things i ever saw but it was good. No the parents didn’t come to church because they were both working. That’s awesome for ty that he is going with the missionaries. We are also doing visits with Avellino and Marcos so i kind of can imagine what its like for him haha.
M: That's great for Maria and for the boys. I know you are going to tell me more about why it was weird and funny.?!?!?!?!
EP: ok so we started super late and so the water was like freezing cold when she was gonna get baptized. The water was already cold cause the boiler kinda sucks. so she like starts to go in and like starts freaking out like no no no no i cant its soooooo cold. Cant you go like boil some water and put it in here please haha and the bishop was like no Hermana ya you just gotta do it fast and it will be better. so she finally gets in but she is standing in the water and like splashing herself with water to get wet and not so cold i guess i don’t know but she’s standing in there splashing water all over her body and head and the bishop is like ya Hermana please stop so we can do the baptism it was super weird and i couldn’t help but laugh. Then she finally calms down enough to get baptized and everything went good but then we asked her daughter how it went and she was like good but she opened her mouth and drank some of the water. Haha i was like o man she is probably gonna die cuase that water is nasty.
M: Oh my, that is a very interesting story. I am sure she is not going to die! She may have a little upset stomach for a little bit, but I am sure she will be okay. I'm glad that she was able to get baptized.
So what else is going on, do you have any new investigators, what are you planning for this Saturday?
EP: um we got some investigators some hopefuls for December. The couple that is most likely have to get married to be able to get baptized so we gotta figure all that out first but were good. This Saturday i think were just gonna watch a movie in the chapel.
we worked our butts off this week haha I guess that’s what i am thankful for. we had a baptism and we taught more than 50 lessons. it was super cool. the standard is 40 and we normally get right around there but this week we got 52 it was awesome. talk to you in a week. love you guys.
