So this week has not been the most eventful, so this email is going to be really short, sorry. On Sunday afternoon last week I started to feel a little sick, but went out and did stuff anyways. Monday morning was a little rough, but Monday night we got a little worse. We ended up staying home all morning on Tuesday. We tried to go out and teach a lesson to Axel, one of our recent converts, but it was really short and we went back home for the rest of the night. On Wednesday we had to stay home in the morning and afternoon, but that night we went to the temple to do baptisms for the dead with a different recent convert, Eder. It was fun, but we were still feeling pretty weak. Thursday we stayed home again. That day we tried to leave the apartment to get stuff from Safeway, but we didn't last very long at all and we went back home. Friday we stayed home again, but taught a lesson to Angel and got everything ready for his baptism. Saturday we had a correlation meeting with Bishop and it was the first day we were feeling a bit better, so we organized stuff for Angel's baptism and ate dinner with Hermana Cordoba, she gave us soup :) Then it was Sunday and we had a baptism!!! Angel finally did it! He was baptized and he will be confirmed in church next Sunday! It was adorable because he was so happy...even if it doesn't look like it in the pictures. Most Hispanics don't smile in the pictures we take with them :) haha, it was an awesome service and a ton of ward members showed up to support him!
So even though we had our challenges this week, we still saw miracles in two amazing ways! We got a recent convert to the temple and an investigator to baptism. Such a rewarding week!!! I can't even complain about being sick because I'm just so happy to see the way the gospel changes and blesses people's lives. Love you all! Have a great week :)
