Week 40 - Baptisms and working with the future Elder Esteban

Hey Mom and Dad,

How's everything going?  Thanks for the birthday wishes. I don't want to be 20 years old. I want to stay a teenager forever.

This week has been really good and thank you for those early and super Duper happy birthday photos you sent.

This week we had the baptismal service for Viviana and Santiago.  It went great.  I got to baptize Santiago. The water was really really hot. It's the hottest water that I have walked into yet in a baptismal font.

We have had a lot of investigators this last week and now we are working to see who is going to progress. We are also focusing a lot with members and less active families. We have been focusing in on this aspect a lot this week. It's been a really fun week.

We have a lot to do in the mission. We have changed our perspective a lot. I feel like the mission perspective has changed as well. We are really having a great time, working hard. There is still a lot of stuff I'm not used to, but overall we are getting a lot done and I feel good.

Esteban, who was baptized last week, has been working with us a lot this week. He has been knocking doors with us and he introduces himself as future Elder Esteban. It Is really cool that he wants to be a missionary. We are trying to take it slow with him but he wanted to be with us for a whole day. Now I think he understands why were always so tired. It's been really great he has helped us a lot and he bares his strong testimony when he has the chance. His testimony is always getting stronger. He keeps asking us lots of questions about the gospel and then he goes home and studies the Scriptures and finds the answers to the things we talked about. Then he shares these things with the people we are teaching. He is really prepared. It is absolutely amazing.

Thanks again for the birthday wishes. That is great that you guys and Jeff went to the temple and did sealings.  Awesome.

Thanks again for everything. I am super Duper happy. Tell everyone hi.

Have a great week. Love you all.
