i hope everyone had an awesome Valentines day, i know that i sure did, it was like the best day of my whole life!
well this week had a lot go on, so yeah, it was pretty awesome. so first off, there is this thing that happens here every year and apparently its a big deal. so they have this huge dancing parade, which is actually a pretty solid aspostacia because its for the Virgen... but no one actually does it for that now anyway, they just like to do their dances in their costums and such. anyway we arent allowed to go into the center during that time, but also everysigle person was in the center and well salcedo was like a ghost down. literally every single person. luckily it was only a problem for 2 days ha. so that was fun.
so we have 3 new investagtors that are awesome! we contacted them and it turns out it was their first week living in salcedo! ha! caughtém ! so thats super cool, and they are progressing really well, weve already had 3 lessons witht them! anyway, im super excited about that.
yeah... anyway, VALENTINE's DAY!
my word it was the coolest day ever! so ive started getting up at 5;50 because i like it. makes the morning go a lot more smoother. anyway, so that when the day began for me. ha, well we had two baptisms and it was the coolest ever. Laura and DIna. it was like the coolest thing ever. they both were so happy and ready to be baptized.
anyway so first was Laura at 11am. she is 21 and just has the coolest testimony. she prayed, she felt it, and so she knows its true.
thats what she said and it is the coolest most simple thing ever.
for me it was the best day ever because it was an opportunity that i was able to feel the spirit so strong! but it was gental at the same time, i was just "overcome"with this super happiness. these things we teach as missionaries are true. the sp[irit is real and if you really want to know, he will testify of it to you personally. thats just another thing that makes us different from other churches. we believe that God speaks and will speak, and this is even one a personal level. and thats the magic of this Valentines day for me. it was a testiment of Gods love for each of us as two awesome people had discovered and chose to be baptized into the church of Jesus Christ on the earth.
so yeah, this week was awesome... ha!
in other news, Gonzabay went to cusco for a few days to go to Machupichu, and so thats cool.
yeah, lifes good!
