Week Eighty-Nine: July 2nd, 2012

Dear Family,
We had a good week this past week. But as with all weeks it had it's ups and downs. Well this past week we had a baptism on the 30th. Andrea got baptized and it was an awesome baptism. A lot of her family showed up and supported her and it was just really spiritual. Elder Smith and I sang a duet of How Great Thou Art. We are going to try and record it and get a copy to you guys. Andrea was crying pretty hard. Even her Dad started crying. The thing is their family lives in another sector so we have our fingers crossed that they'll be able to get in there and baptize the rest of the family. We also are planning on another baptism this next Saturday. Manuel is getting married on Thursday so that he can get baptized on Saturday. So we are really excited. They asked us to be the witnesses at their marriage. So that's pretty cool.
We have been seeing so many miracles too.
This past week we were teaching English on Saturday as we always do and a Joven (youth) came up and asked what time church is at on Sundays. He expressed that he has been dating the daughter of the Stake President in PeƱaflor and really likes the church. And believe it or not yesterday he and his girlfriend showed up at church. So we are also very excited about that. This past week also we had another Leadership Meeting last friday. It was fun to be able to see friends and talk to some of the missionaries that are in my old sectors. So all in all it was a really good week and this next week is going to be even busier. We'll tell you all about it next week.
