We had such a good week! Hermana M** R** was baptized on Saturday and confirmed on Sunday! Also, a family that I taught when on companion exchanges was baptized as well. What a neat day and soooo many miracles!
M** R** has been very sick, VERY sick, but her testimony is so strong and she has so much faith!! We picked her up and her daughters weren't there. They support her but don't want to have anything to do with the church. When we got to the church house, they sent us a text and said to wait because they were on their way!! What a miracle to see them come to their mom's baptism!! She was scared that the water was going to be cold, and the truth is, our boiler doesn't work in the church. The service was supposed to start at 5:30, but the water was freezing. We brought our stove and a pan and started boiling water and dumping it in. We also bought water heater things (metal pieces that you put in the water and plug in the wall) but it wasn't doing much. Finally, we got the boiler to work a little and said many prayers. The water was still cold when we started the service. M** R** went first and I stood ready with a towel for when she got out of the water. When I put her towel around her, her clothes were warm!! It was a miracle!

in November and goes out on teaching appointments with
us while he waits to go on his own mission.

me and I sang in sacrament meeting yesterday! He
served his mission in Salt Lake City and speaks English!)
I love you all and just want you to know how much I care for you, and think about you, and pray for you! I sure am loving this. It's hard but I love seeing the positive changes in the people's lives!!
