3 Nephi 27:20

Hello everyone. Good afternoon. I hope that everyone is doing well. We had a good week this week. Pretty normal apart from the baptism of Carmen, Guadelupe and Angel which was great! However I'll get to that right now. 

So Monday was good, we visited Carmen and her family with Hno. Serrano. It was a pretty powerful lesson, we talked about the Temple and passed over some of the baptism interview questions. On Tuesday we went to Puebla so that I could renew my temple recommend with President Nelson. In Puebla it was warmer than here in Apizaco. That evening we came back to Apizaco, saw the other Elders from Xicotencatl, and then we went and taught Carmen and them. It was also Angel´s birthday! He turned 12 and we brought him a cake. It was a good time. On Wednesday I went to Huamantla with Elder Dansie in exchanges. It was super cold. I´m pretty sure it hit freezing but Í´m not sure. It was a good exchange, I enjoyed the company of Elder Dansie, he´s a funny guy. Also I got a cold from being there that´s stuck with me haha.
Happy Birthday!
On Thursday we visited Juana and Fernanda, some recient converts who are going strong. We also saw Edgar and Vicky in the evening. That night Carmen and Guadelupe had their baptismal interviews which went great. However Carmen told us that her work had asked her to work until 9 in the evening and her baptism was planned at 7, she was going to ask her boss for permission to leave early. That night and next day we prayed pretty hard that she´d have permission to get out early. That was also the only day that her work asked her to stay late. There are always obstacles at the last minute with baptisms. However, apart from that everything went smoothly for the baptism. Carmen did get permission and just got there late, but a bunch of members showed up and it was a very spiritual service. One of the best of my mission.

On Saturday we passed by with Angel and Carmen to read the Book of Mormon a bit, we also passed by with some other investigators and visited Steve and Noemi. They´re doing well as well. Sunday was good, however we almost didn´t have time to proselyte due to church and studies. Angel, Guadelupe, and Carmen were confirmed at church, We also had Edgar there, Vicky was at home with their sick daughter. That day we also ate with Carmen. We´ve really seen a huge change in their lives and it has been great to be able to witness it. Today we played some sports, soccer, and ultimate. We´re also looking forward to this week. On Saturday we're going to have a conference with Elder Oaks! It´ll be sweet! Have a great week!

3 Nephi 27:20  Now this is the commandment: Repent, all ye ends of the earth, and come unto me and be baptized in my name, that ye may be sanctified by the reception of the Holy Ghost, that ye may stand spotless before me at the last day.
