A Baptism and Fireworks!

Hola familia!

This week has been crazy! This Friday, the zone leaders called us and told us that President Bautista had talked to President Amado (Counselor in the Central America Area Presidency and Quorum of the Seventy) and he told President Bautista that nobody could baptize next week. This is because everyone has stake conference next Saturday and Sunday, so we couldn't confirm them that Sunday so we would have to change their dates to tomorrow or the week after! If we changed it to the week after, it would have counted for December and not November! They told us this on Friday!! This meant we would have to change our date for the next day!!!

We had an appointment with the family later than night and we prayed a ton that day! We went and talked to them and told them that their daughter was ready, and she really is ready, she even knows President Thomas S. Monson's name, which is huge. They were actually really nice and willing to have the baptism for tomorrow!

So we had the baptism on Saturday! The day after! It actually went perfectly, all of the members showed up, and brought food and we brought food, so there was a grand fiesta after!

Also, after that the city had a huge firework show to start the celebration of Christmas. And if I understood my spanish right, every city does it at the exact same time, so that was pretty cool!

Other than that we went to Aguactan again, it was cool, we rode on top of the van, it reminded me of going through Logan canyon, and these vans go fast! So I thought it was a lot of fun, although I think mom will be worried from now on! We met a sweet family there, and on Wednesday they want to take us fishing! So I guess I can tell you guys all about that next week!

Sounds like a great and cold week in Cache Valley! haha! Everyone have a great next week! Les amo!
