Well this week we worked hard and had one baptism. Eusebio was baptized and he has had a perma-grin ever since. I love to see people make these sacred covenants with God, and it's very cool to see them want to keep them. We are working with his wife and kid, Maria and Victor, who have a baptismal date for the 11th of March. They are so excited, and Victor wanted to join his dad in the water. He said, "we might as well just do it, we are here afterall...." It was cool to see that. Afterwards they invited us over for a Mole, (moe-lay) which was very spicy and really, really wonderful. We helped them buy some of the ingredients and make it. Now I have a basic idea how to do it.
We were visited by the area president, Elder Daniel Johnson, who taught us how to support and sustain our leaders, which involves being obedient to what they ask us to do. He was very in tune with the spirit and a few of the things he said were answers to my prayers and said right to me.
I hope you are all well, and such.
