Week 76: Baptism, New Mission President

For starters, I just want to let you all know that I got to see fireworks on the fourth of July too! Didn´t miss a thing! As you may know, we have a new mission president, who happens to love football, and gave all the missionaries permission to see the "Copa America" which is a soccer competition of all South America. The finals were Chile vs. Argentina and WE WON! WAHOO! So maybe I saw the fireworks on TV, but hey, it still counts, right? 

Second, one of our investigators that we have been teaching got baptized! His name is Martin! He is 9, and so full of energy that he can´t even hold still for the picture. He is crazy. But, it was a really sweet baptism, because 2 other little kids got baptized too (:  Martin is so crazy that he dunked himself in the water before his dad was even all the way in the font. It was hilarious! 

We have 3 other investigators that have plans to be baptized this month. We have seen SO many miracles, and I am excited that we see the Lord`s hand SO much in our area. I really know that there are so many people waiting for this truth, and I feel honored to be able to share it. 

It is crazy that there are so many changes happening in the mission. It is different to have a new presdient, and to have all of the rules change, but hey, the Lord calls who he knows needs to be here and at the time they need to be here.
