A week of ups and downs

It has been a great week here in Mexico. Really Hot, but the rainy season should be starting any day now, which means constant rain until September.  The good thing is this is the time of year when we teach the most because everyone is out of school and can listen to us.

Congrats Katie on the Graduation.  That is awesome, I feel like I just graduated.

This was a week of ups and downs, I will start with the downs because it is better to end with the ups.  So some of our super awesome investigators who were Jehovah's Witness are now once again Jehovah's witness and do not want to listen to us. We are not really sure what happened, but it broke my heart because they were such an awesome family to teach and I hope that they will still be friendly.  Sometimes as a missionary there is disappointment but the good times are so awesome that they make you forget all of the lame stuff that happens.

This Saturday we  had the baptisms of Jenni and Karen,  We had to clean the font before hand because the member who is suppose to do it had is wisdom teeth taken out so he was "incapable".  I don't see how that applies, he is not cleaning it with his mouth, and he had his surgery on Monday.  Oh well. 

The boiler broke down and we ran out of water, so we only could fill up the font a little more than one foot high.  We had to baptize them laying down, but it worked, they went completely under and all though they were somewhat traumatized by the cold water it was a good experience over all.

One of the really cool things that happened was that a lady showed up to the baptism with her towel and wanted us to baptize her too.  We didn't know who she was, but she said she had prayed and she knows that this is true so she wanted to get baptized.  So we will be baptizing her next week.  Pretty cool.

Everything is great here.  I cant think of anything else.  No, they don't celebrate 5 de Mayo here, only in the US ha ha.  Still haven't found any white shirts but I am going to keep looking.

I love you all,
Con Muchisimo Amor,
