October 24, 2016 ALBERTO!!!!!!!!!

Friends and fam,

This was the last week of the transfer and Hna. Garay & I will stay together six more weeks! Good thing I love her so much. :) 

Lunes: FHE with a newlywed couple who didn't want to have their FHE alone haha. We talked about 1 Nephi 19:23 and how we should not only read the scriptures, but "liken them unto us." It was bomb.

Viernes: Alberto had his baptismal interview and talked with our district leader for like 2 hours (Alberto LOVES to talk) and basically taught him all of the lessons from memory haha. He's the greatest.

Sábado: ALBERTO'S BAPTISM!!!!! His wife, daughter, and grandson came to support him and it was great! After the ordinance, he bore his testimony and it was the most beautiful and sincere testimony ever. He rocks!

Domingo: Alberto was confirmed!! And wore a tie and dress pants to church for the first time so we took a sweet pic with him to celebrate his wardrobe choices haha. 
ALSO, my trainer finished her mission yesterday and I hadn't seen her in SIX MONTHS but they gave us permission to go to the bus station after church to see her and another elder who is also going home who was in our ward when I started the mission and I died of happiness!!

I hope you all have a great week and can reflect on your baptism! How did you feel to follow the Savior's example? What are you doing now or what do you need to do to renew your baptismal covenants continually aside from taking the sacrament?

Love you all! Have a great week!!
