Baptisms and Adventures!

Hey team! How are you all doing? I'm doing really really good! 

I'm especially excited cause we had two baptisms this week! They are named Milagros, and Agnese. They are both nine year old girls, and rest of their family are members. 

Their families were less actives, but we have been working with them and helping them come back to church. And they are starting to come back! It was really interesting teaching them. We had to teach really really simply. We had to draw out the 10 commandment, and the word of wisdom. We did arts and crafts with them and painted rocks to help them to remember to pray. It was fun! We had to be a little creative. 

Also, at the baptism, we did a musical number. It was awesome. The mom of Agnese sings in a choir, and she invited some of her professional friends to come sing and they invited us too! We sang an evangelical song. It turned out super cool. Especially considering I don't know how to sing. It was just a really special experience!

The adventure! Tonight, we are going on an adventure. A long time ago in the mission there was an area farther north from here called Sierra Grande. This last week the president from there asked if we would go over there and teach a few references. So tonight we are going to travel, sleep in the branch presidents house, and then come back at 6 in the morning Wednesday. It's going to be awesome!

I love you team! Have a great week!
