Us with Carlos before his baptism
Here we go again. Somehow its pday and I´m doing email again! Woo! Its been a busy busy one though.. Lots of time in the office this week. We have a bunch of new missionaries coming in this change so we have a lot to get done before they actually get here. We DID have a baptism last week though! I will attach pictures no worries. This is Carlos. The kid I told you was SUPPPERRR prepared.. It was a really happy day for all of us. There was as well an 8 yr old girl named Raiza who got baptized that same day so we had a pretty good turnout. We´re really excited about Carlos and his future in the church.

Also, our recent convert Ximena is getting her patriarchal blessing today! WOW! Amazing how fast people can progress. She´s already got a calling as well. The Lord really does choose his chosen children. Love it.

Today we went bowling with the Kings for a Pday activity. Way fun. Come to find out the President does WORKKK bowling like a 185 and a 175 back to back. Super good. Just a POWER HOUSE. He used like a 16 weighted ball haha. It was a lot of fun.

 Well.. I wish I had more to say but the truth is that it doesn´t even feel like a week has gone by. I´m just glad to know that you´re all okay and healthy. Especially Dad after having his "Procedure" Haha. Gotta respect that one. Though it is a short letter, I have attached a decent amount of pics. So don´t be too mad. We should be really busy again with this week being the last full one before changes. Crazy where the time goes. I expect to be here on my computer for a fair amount of it! The gospel is true. It is the best. Everyone can change their life... Everyone can find the peace they need as well as the solutions to this lifes problems. I´m grateful to be blessed with such amazing friends and family. I know I say that a lot but I can NEVER say it too much. I hope you guys all have a great week. Keep trying to find more and more ways to keep the spirit with you. Let it be your guide in all of your dealings as well be an example to the rest. Take care, Elder Christensen
