Week 34: Baptism! September 26, 2016

Well attached are pictures of a baptismal service from Saturday. It doesnt count as ours as missionaries, cuz the Sister Missionaries in our ward taught him, but why not celebrate just as much? His name is Ruben and hes got a sweet goatee and hair, and hes very humble and quiet and happy. Hes gunna be a good member. Becuase of their jobs none of the members who helped teach him could baptize him, so he picked my companion. We were also able to stand in the circle to confirm him! That was super powerful.
I finally got my hands on a package my mom sent a little more than a month ago! I got an awesome Cousin Camp shirt, shown here when we went out to run this morning, and a ton of American candy! Which is good cuz Argentine candy is..well, less. Brought back some good memories eatin a Jolly Rancher for the first time in years. I also got a little dope book and letters from you guys at home which I super enjoyed! Its also awesome cuz now i have something for my companions to write in at Transfers! I thank all who wrote me a little note. Tomorrow I will use and take pictures of another awesome thing I found in my package.
Anyway we went on splits this week with the Zone Leaders and I went with Elder Shill from Mesa Arizona, we had a lot of fun and contacted a lot of people.
Isidoro came to church this sunday again but without his granddaughter, but we didnt go and bring him so its a big step.
— Love you!
