Dear Family,

I thought I told you about the baptism? But I'll tell it again!!!!

 It was an awesome experience! I had the privilege of baptizing her. We got to feel the spirit very powerful there. We went down in the water and I baptized her and we went and changed into dry clothes. We finished the service and the brother in law of Maria came over to us crying and said he wanted to be baptized. We could feel the spirit there very very strongly. And that testified to him that it was the truth.

We have talked with him a little bit this week but we never could really find him but then today, he found us. He sells donuts and he found us in our front yard. He told us he wants to be baptized this week if he can. He is going to have to wait a week or 2 because he drinks coffee but it was an amazing feeling and that we could know of the love our God has for us. He knows what we are doing and we are working hard. Finally we are receiving the blessings we just have to be patient! Not very easy sometime....But we always receive the blessings.

We changed houses this week also! Had small problems with the landlord......not a very honest dude and was trying to rip us off.....long story short the church lawyers are gonna have a little talk with him.

Today we had a district activity we went to La Patrona. A restaurant where they make burgers! They make one that is like 8 patties or something like that with bacon cheese onions, etc. And if you eat it in 20 minutes its free if not well it costs a little bit haha. One of the missionaries did it but I've lost the appetite I had before the mission. He almost had it but finished all but 2 patties and the bottom bun! It was pretty fun!

We had an alright week we gotta work hard so we can baptize every week. President Treviño made a promise with the first presidency that as a mission we would be baptizing every week in April! SO we are working super hard to do that! Life's going good just gotta work work work!!!
