Bautismo! - Sister Hannah Avery

Written by Sister Hannah Avery, serving in the Chile Vina del Mar Mission of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, speaking Spanish.

  Hola familia y amigos! :)

We finished another week! AHH! It was a busy and a very crazy one, but in the end, we had two baptisms! :) J** and M** were baptized on Friday and were confirmed members of the church yesterday. It was a really great baptism, and we made over 100 mini cinnamon rolls, brownies, etc for refreshment afterward. It all turned out great, and the Chileans LOVE cinnamon rolls, haha! It was awesome :) N**, the mom, said that she loved the baptism, and we are PRAYING that she will be baptized next! :)

We also had a little bit of a slow week this week since my companion has a plantar wart. She has been limping for a few weeks now and tried to tough it out until she gets home in 2 weeks to have it removed by the doctor. But she couldn't anymore because she's developing tendonitis from walking wrong (to keep pressure off the wart). So, last night at about midnight we removed her plantar wart and it's gone for good! She is still limping because she's cut the thing out of her foot, but we are hoping she will heal up quickly so that we can start walking at a fast pace again. We need to keep finding the people who are seeking the Gospel! :)

Other than that, we really didn't do much this week. Like I said, my cute companion has been in pain. Please pray for her and for our area so that we can find the people who are waiting for us, even though we are moving at a slower pace right now. I love you all soooo much and will talk to you all next week! :) I love you!

PS: Scripture for the week: 1 Nephi 9:6: "But the Lord knoweth all things from the beginning; wherefore, he prepareth a way to accomplish all his works among the children of men; for behold, he hath all power unto the fulfilling of all his words. And thus it is. Amen."  :)
