Sorry, we've had a super hectic report writing/family writing session today... full of calls from the assistants and from just about every area in the zone. I've really loved being a zone leader, but I´ll be pretty happy for my last transfer when I can just be a normal senior companion again. So, I apologize that I'm just about out of time to write and I didn't say anything about this week other than the baptism. All I can say is that it was a great week and that we had a lot of really good experiences. The leadership council in Tuxtla was pretty awesome, and then we came back Wednesday and had a really really great zone training. We felt like we transmitted to the elders and sisters what President wanted them to know and hear. Then, we had a couple of really cool experiences as a companionship finding investigators. We found a couple of new people that are definitely going to get baptized. I guess we'll just wait to see if I'm still around when that happens or not. :)
Sorry that that´s all I can write. :( I´m out of time.
Have a great week! I love you all very much!
Con mucho amor!

So, this week when we went to fill up the baptismal font, water did not come out. We thought that was pretty unfortunate until we learned that we could have the baptism in the RIVER!!! And at that point it became the best thing that happened to us all day. So, here´s Merced and me right after the ordinance.
This is right before the ordinance. Both of us were pretty excited because we hadn´t baptized in a river before. This was a really special experience.
Here we are heading out to the water...
And right before the ordinance.... so this one really goes right after the first one that I sent. :) It was an AWESOME baptismal service. If we can, we´re going to have the rest of our baptisms here in Chahuites in the river. The only downside is that my white temple pants are super dirty. But they´re in the washer right now so we´ll see if I can get them a little bit cleaner. :) If not, I´ll have to scrub them by hand (which I don´t like doing).
