Week 27, (204 days) - Matthew's baptism!

Hola a todos. Esta ultima semana fue buena, tuvimos otro bautismo tambien! I just said, hello everyone! This last week was good, we had another baptism too! Yes, the past three weekends we've had many awesome miracles. Matthew is such a great kid. We started teaching him about a month ago. I don't know if any of you remember but I explained about a month ago what the situation was. His mom is a member who was at the time not active in the church and his dad not a member, but Matthew had been going to church with some of his friends for the past few weeks before. Well he talked to his Mom about wanting to be baptized. And since he'd only been to church a few times and had little knowledge of the church his mom then talked to a family friend that was apart of our ward about taking the missionary lessons. So we met his mom and talked to her about it and she said that we were able to meet the following Tuesday. From then on the spirit was there, he was prepared and accepted the invitation to be baptized by the 28th of Sept. It was a great day!! A ton of people from the ward were there and even Matthew's dad was there! It was a great experience to be apart of. Although this happened on Saturday, it defiantly was the most exciting part of the week.
Monday was pday of course, and we did lots of stuff like emailing, grocery shopping, and clean the apartment and relax. Blah, blah about pday.. later that night we went over to a family's house for Family Home Evening. Which was super fun, cuz we had a nerf gun war!! Haha. They have 6 kids so there was a lot going on, nerf bullets flying, and people getting shot in the eye... and me getting shot like multiple times in the face...But it was fun, made me miss my family, especially my brothers! Then to make it more spiritual we talked about Samuel and how because of the power of God he was protected. Obviously we weren't protected even though we are missionaries.. Lol. But it was a fun FHE. :)

Thursday we went over to a part member family's house for dinner and had super yummy food! Roast beef, with mash potatoes and steamed carrots! It was so good! Made me miss home cooked meals and spending time with family. Thankfully they gave us left overs and we gladly took them for lunch the next day. YUM!

Saturday, we had Women's conference! Yay! That was super awesome.
And I love that the Sisters at the MTC were able to perform at the broadcast!
