Gabriel se bautizo!And it was hermoso. We passed by the day before his baptism and he told us he was anxious for the day of his baptism to arrive. :) His mom, Juana, and brother went to the baptism. We are hopeful that Juana can follow his example soon and be baptized as well. They are a special family, one I have come to love very much. Gabriel and his brother go to a special needs school. Juana´s house what burned a few months ago and she lost everything but she just keeps on keepin´ on with incredible faith in Jesus Christ.
Hermana Salas has given me the reigns to lead to area so that I will be prepared for this coming transfer when she leaves me for her home in Perú. I make a lot of mistakes. But I am learning a lot in a short amount of time, and I'm learning more about what it means to be a focused, diligent missionary. It is intense! What a privilege to care for the children of God that He has blessed to know. I am trying to give them all I've got and to let Jesus Christ change my heart into how He wants it to be. It is a process.
I want to have time to send pictures so I am going to keep this one short! It was also the birthday of Hermana Castillo and we had a good time with that. :) I love this ward so much. Everyone is so full of love.
I love you all!!! Thanks for your love and support and powerful examples. You are beautiful.
el barrio, the ones I love so muchAn Argentine dessert...sweet potato jello on top and mozzarella cheese on the bottom. It was the first time I had it. Delicious. Sits a little heavy on the stomach. but really good.
