It's time to say hoooowwwdy to all you goofy goobers!
Happy Halloween to all my people in the great US of A. and to my people here happy dia de muertos! Nothing really crazy goes on with the holidays just a lot of drinking and parties, so I guess you could say we're having a good time. hahaha. Great week here in Mexico. Chambeando macizo and looking for some new people to teach! Today we got to do something super awesome! So early this morning all of the jovenes in the ward went to the temple to do baptisms at like 6 am, AND like 4 of my converts went!!! Emelyn, Darlyn, Lupita, y Maria Jose went to the temple and we got to go watch them do the baptisms!! I am so freaking pumped hahaha I love everyone here!! They were all so excited I'm so happy!!! Lupita told me before that she was super nerviosa and didn't really know what to expect but after she was so excited! It really is something super admirable. hahaha She got baptized like a month ago and Maria Jose last week! They went to the temple already!!!! Ahhhh so cool hahaha. We took a dope pic and everyone there doesn't even make it to my shoulder. I felt like I dressed up as Willie Wonka for Halloween and they were all my oompa loompas. But la neta I am so happy right now, That is like the ultimate goal to get people to go to the temple and they did it!!! Makes all the garbage days when no one wants to talk to us pay off. hahaha.
We also started teaching the brother of Lupita y Maria Jose!! His names Jesus but everyone calls him Chucho, 17 years old and super cool kid. He has always been there when we have gone to visit and teach them but just out of nowhere he wanted to listen! We went yesterday and was like "Hey can I go to the temple with them?" I told him that he had to be a member which means getting baptized and he was like "Well if I want to get baptized when can I do it?" hahaha So we're hoping that everything goes well with that! Looks pretty promising right now so let's see what we can do lol Try to get one more before they move me out of here.
Fun fact: I have almost been here in this ward for 8 months. Also, I only have like 8 months left. Que pedo no? jajaja
Well I love you all, good luck this week and don't do anything too dumb.
