Ok, so as Taylor will tell you, baptisms aren't necessarily everything in the mission...but they sure are awesome when everything is falling into place with the Lord's help! This week, Elder Qualls and I had the privilege of baptizing two great young men, who ended up being cousins funnily enough. Victor is a 21 year old guy who is super humble, and was sincerely seeking to know the truth, especially because he wasn't sure that his mother was leading him in the right way with the Seventh Day Adventist church. He asked a lot of questions, but decided to get baptized, because he knew it was the right thing to do!
Miguel is a rambunctious 9 year old who is part of a part member family. His older sister was baptized by the missionaries years ago, and she's married to another member. Miguel's mom, however, is not a member, but she is very supportive of his decision. He was so excited to get baptized and be a member along with his sister. I got to baptize him, which was good because he was a lot easier than Victor. Poor guy had to be baptized 5 times...This time we got to baptize in the beach in Tuquillo, which was absolutely beautiful! I attached a picture of that for you guys to see...don't worry! I will start wearing more sunscreen...
We get to go to Trujillo this week to have a training meeting with President! That should be super fun, but the unfortunate thing is, we have to stay the night in Chimbote, which is a dirty town that smells like fish. That's alright though, I guess it is just part of the adventure.
Anyway, tell everyone thanks for all the packages! I love getting them, and am so grateful to see American candy again. There's so many things you miss...like milk...I haven't had milk in three months...
Love you guys!
