Two Baptisms heck ya baby!!
It was quite the exciting week I have to say! It was suuuuper busy because we had to fit everything in by like 6pm everyday, for El Dia de Los Muertos. It is just too dangerous for us to be out but we got everything done and done RIGHT! On Thursday we had the baptisms of Ernesto and Irven and it was freaking dope! They were super excited and I can already tell they are going to progress super fast in the church. Yesterday at church they were confirmed and then after Irven, who is 17, got up and shared his testimony in sacrament!!! I was like, holy balls, I don't even do that and I've been a member of the church my whole life! hahahaha What a freaking beast! Am i right?! He has such a strong testimony of the savior. He wants to go to the temple so bad so the bishop is going to give him an interview this week. I think they're going to go to the temple in a couple weeks! How dope is that?! hahahah Talk about a testimony builder for me right there! Irven will do great things in the church and in his life. He is just that kind of person. I already know, he's so excited to learn and grow it's honestly inspiring!
Other than the baptism it was a pretty chill week! A bunch of members wanted to give us food and candy and cake and stuff for the holiday. It was dope! hahahah We had this BOMB tres leches and you know it was legit cause a freaking Mexican lady made it!!! hahahah Some of the food wasn't that good though hahaha We ate at this one hermanas house this week and when we got there I looked at the plate and it was legit, just half of a fish! hahahaha and you know how I like fish! It really didn't taste bad it was just looking at it that made it so weird to eat! We also found this homemade ice cream place in the middle of nowhere and they had pistachio ice cream!!!! You already know I was willing to pay anything for that hahaha even though it was only like 15 pesos which is less than a dollar! It's nice to have some stuff that reminds you of home. Everyone who actually knows me knows that I freaking love ice cream.
Today we didn't do much just went to the markets and looked around and stuff but it was exactly what I needed. Last week made me so tired for some reason. hahaha This week should be some good stuff too though! I don't think we'll have another baptism but we're hoping to get a few in the water next week! I just can't believe it's November already. hahahah Talk about time flying! Can't wait to see what we can do this week!
Love you all and the church is true!!!
