Good Morning America.
Life here in the mission just keeps on going. Time is flying.
This week we had the baptism of a girl named Leah. She has family that are members but her dad is inactive and her grandpa as well. So she never got baptized when she turned 8. Years passed and she never got baptized. When I got here I started leaving with her Grandpa, Antonio, who is actually the old bishop here. He had a lot of time without going to church and was struggling. So we helped him out and were preparing him so he could baptize his granddaughter. Everything was going well until he fell out of his pickup truck. (He’s 71) and he got injured pretty badly. So that was the day before the baptism of Leah so, in the end, I just ended up baptizing her. I guess the important part was that Antonio finally got his temple recommend and stuff, even though he wasn’t able to actually do the baptism. It was a super sweet service and Leah’s testimony at the end was really cute.
Besides that... well this is the last couple of days with Elder Alberca before he goes home to Peru. He’s a great guy and we are going to live it up these last days in trio! That’s all I really feel like writing for now but I’ll write more next week. The pic is of a painting that is by our house, it’s really interesting.
Love you all!
