48: Independencia 15

Before you get antsy, the baptism was for a child [of record]. But it was fun.

Sunday was pure awesome. We got 5 people in sacrament meeting, 3 families, and 4 adult males (priesthood holders). A lot of them are very positive. I'll let you know next week how that's all going.

Okay. So this has been the week of multizones and capacitations [planning]. The president wanted to re-teach everyone how to teach well, so we've had two 7-hour multizones this week. Yeah. Really long. Also, that meant I wasn't able to work in the office at the normal time. So we all got way behind, and today we've been here since about 9 in the morning working for our P-day. Well, it's the office. What can you do?

So Tuesday, our first day, we had the multizone which, although very long, was excellent. After, we finished up some of the projects we were working on and went to the house to drop off some boxes. It was about 6:30 at that time, and the primary president called me and asked me where we were. Well...I just kind of stuttered for a second and then asked porque [why]. "Well, everything is ready. We have the cake, the clothes. We're all waiting." "Uh..." "For the baptism!" Well, apparently this 8-year-old girl of this family we were reactivating was getting baptized that day. We had planned on a week later, but...I guess not.

So we took off running to the chapel, my companion changed, and we had a baptism. It was a cool baptism. They had the whole primary there, so it wasn't very quiet, and we were both sweating from the sprint we took, but it was still very spiritual. Rosemary got baptized. After that, we ate food and the little kids got to break a piñata. They are crazy. Seriously. And not just the kids, but all the leaders. As soon as that candy fell, everyone was on the ground chasing after it, except for me and my companion.

It was really good. Good times.

It's been a way busy week. I have a million projects going on right now.

So, we're going to go get something to eat now.

Take care y'all!
