Baptism :)

Hola Familia! 
This week was so crazy, but so great!! (: On Tuesday we had district class and it was really great. We had a lot of help from the members this week and they really brought the spirit into the lessons! We were able to teach Lidia again and I really think she will progress! The days during the week were pretty normal but the weekend was one for the books! haha. A few weeks ago we had gone to teach a young man who is in a branch where there arent missionaries and he has been recieving the lessons over the phone for a year, we didnt think we were going to be able to finish teaching him because it is a 3 hour drive to where he lives but on Saturday the branch president and his family brought Francisco, the young man, here for us to teach him. He had already gone to church 5 times so all he needed was the lessons to be baptized so we taught him all of the lessons and then he had his interview and was baptized all in the same day! It was so crazy because he didnt even know he would be getting baptized in the same day as all his lessons so we didnt have anything planned but with the help from the members, and our zone and district leaders we found everything we needed and were able to put together a baptismal service that really was so spiritual. Elder Christensen and Elder Hernandez both gave talks and then a brother from another ward played his gutiar and sang Grand Eres Tu ( how great thou art) and sang and it was amazing and then in the end Fransisco bore his testimony and his faith is amazing! It was so cool to be a part of his day and I felt so blessed to be able to teach him. On Sunday we were able to find some inactive members who never would let us teach before and they were so willing to listen and recieve the gospel in their houses again. There is a brother in the ward who served part of his mission, came home early and hasnt been to church much since and he is about 35 years old and normally when we teach his mom and his brother he leaves but yesterday he sat and talked with us and talked about his mission and it truly was amazing! We have a lot to work to do with him but I truly believe slowly he will come back to the church! I loved this week so much, and today we got to play basketball with some other sister missionaries and the youth from their ward and it was a blast! I am loving everything out here! We have transfers next week and I am hoping I dont get transfered but we will see what happens! haha I am so glad all is well back home! I love you guys so much! Have an amazing week(: 
Love always,
