No time to waste!! (Pics)

Hola, it has been an amazing week here in Mexico.  I have so much to
tell you guys.

Joe bowling with his District

We will start of with Monday.  We went bowling.  I really don't like to
bowl at all but it was fun because we went with the whole district.
My district is super awesome I love it, we have a lot of fun together.

Remember how last year I played the guitar in the Christmas devotional
for the missionaries?  Well, this year I got roped into it again but
this time was super cool because I accompanied Elder Alvarez on the
Piano with our own arrangement of "What Child is This".  It was soooo
awesome!  All of the missionaries loved it and my companion recorded it.  

Joe and Elder Chronister and their baptisms

He said he will post it of facebook in 19 months when he gets
home.  It was so good, that we performed it for the ward fireside and
they liked it so much that we performed it for the stake fireside!  It
was cool.
We had three baptisms Saturday, it was great.  The only thing that
went wrong was that there was no water and that this baptismal font
is 3 times bigger than any other one I have baptized in.  So we were
filling it up with buckets,  It was horrible!! Every time we baptize
more than two people something goes wrong with the baptismal font, but
we were able to fill it up in two hours, and although the water was
cold, it was one of the best baptisms of my mission.  The spirit was
super strong.

We saw a huge miracle this week with an investigator named Julio.  We
were just cruising down the street at a super good missionary pace
because we just have so many people to teach that we don't have time to 
waste.  Well we are going along and a lady starts running after us.  She
wanted us to go talk with her neighbor who is Julio.  Julio has one
leg so he couldn't walk after us.  He talked to the missionaries 3
months ago but they never came to his house.  So he was thinking about
us and said a prayer that he would be able to contact us.  At that
moment we pass in front of the street were he was praying and he sees
us and sends his neighbor to run after us.  He is super awesome! We had an appointment
so we couldn't stay long.  We got his information and we
left a pamphlet with him.  He read it like three times and he came to
church yesterday and loved it!!  Afterwards he told us that he prayed
about the pamphlet we gave him and he felt a huge feeling of happiness
in his heart.  It was super awesome!  I am grateful for the opportunity
we have to help him come closer to God.  He will getting baptized on
the 29th.

I have got more stuff to tell you to about a lot of other miracles,
but I don't have time so I will tell you on the 25th.
I love you all!
Con muchísimo Amor,
Elder Joe Fuell
