thanks a lot for the emails i alwasy enjoy reading them.
well this week was great cause we had the baptism of elva. the only bad part was that there were problems with the font cause our building is really old and it didn`t fill up all the way, only to less than waist deep so it was a hassle getting her under but it turned out ok. the service was great because this week the ex stake president got called as our ward mission leader and did a great job planning the baptismal service. i absolutely love having a responsable ward mission leader!! we also are teaching a really great part member family that is called jorge. he is really excited to get baptized on the 22 but we are thinking about moving his fecha up to this week cause he is progressing good. he went to church. then came back at four for the baptism, and then went with us to the stake center at seven for the first presidency devotional. he loved it all and loves to have all his family with him in churhc. we are going to take our ex bishop tomorrow with us to the lesson. this week we went to the temple, oh my heavens it was awesome. i love the temple!!! we had the christmas conference as well and i passed in front to give my final testimony. i felt weird. don`t know how to describe it. i have been having a lot of mixed emotions lately about going home but i know i can`t avoid it and am going to take it with a good attitude. i got my travel plans this week as well. looks like i`ll be going to mexico city then los angles then home, it`ll be a long day and i hope my bags don`t get lost. well thanks for everything guys it sounds like your doing well at home, i hope you get feeling a little bit more better dad and i hope taras boyfriend doctor invites her to get married soon. thanks for the updates, love you all!!
