Baptism Surprise

Editor's Note:  It's been a while since I posted here.  Not to make excuses, but we've been moving...  I'll try to post a few today going back to the end of April.

HEY!! So this week we had a baptism surprise! It went well. Well, there were two baptisms, of a familia and their daughter and the other daughter that's like 8.  But we activated the family and helped them and we just had the baptism.  It was really nice. i could feel the spirit really strongly. 

In my last area I don't know if that lady got baptized. We can't really talk to the other elders from the other areas. It's a rule. But hopefully she did. We also had an activity in the stake where, well I'll say it was the president of the stake's idea. We got all the investigators to come to the church for this activity and the recent converts from some of the other wards shared their conversion experience. It went really nicely and us missionaries sang in a choir there. it was awesome. We also gave out Hershey kisses and cookies, like from Pres. Packer's talk in general conference.  But we used Hershey kisses cause we obviously can't be goin around kissing people so we used those chocolates. It was fun. That was yesterday. So that's some fun stuff that went on. We are planning to have more activities this summer, a lot more, so we're gonna see what we can do. 

How are you guys doing? I know some hard things have happened but just keep goin.  Help someone have a good day.  An elder here, his father died.  He left to see him for a week and he died. Then he returned here to the mission.  He's a strong elder and it helped me as well cause he cares about the work and he trusts God. So I know as we just follow the steps in the gospel God will help and bless us. THERE IS A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BEING ACTIVE IN CHURCH AND IN THE GOSPEL.  I hope you guys have a good week :)  See you next week.
