What up everyone!! We had an awesome week here in Laredo. I don't think I've sweat more in my life than i have this past week. I love showing up to people's doors looking like i just got out of a swimming pool. I'm sure they do too. ;)To start off, Brian got baptized yesterday!! It was an awesome experience and definitely one of my more spiritual baptisms. Brian started tearing up and everything and the spirit was real strong. It just helped me grow even a stronger testimony of the Lord's work.

Hey everyone! First off, I've never eaten more meat in my life than i have this last week. I love it! Easter is a pretty big holiday down here especially for the Catholics. Its one of the times they all head to church for the year. And then after they all go throw big parties and cook all the meat they can.This week was good! Our investigator Brian is doing well. He's still looking good for his baptism this weekend. Pray that everything goes well!! The week right before the baptism is when the devil tries the hardest :) So we are going to need all the prayers we can get.

Good news! We had a baptism last week! It was awesome. Jorge got baptized. We are still working with his mom. She's doing well, she just needs a little bit more time. She's awesome. She'll get there soon.We are working with a guy named Brian right now. Haha, pretty ironic. He's doing great. He came to church last week and loved it. He's 19 so he's going to the singles branch so we've been working with that branch a lot this past week or so. He's looking really good for his date!

First off, thanks for all the birthday wishes!! It was awesome, definitely felt the love ;) Its kind of weird telling all the people that I'm now 19 when I've been telling everyone I'm 18 my whole mission.Conference was rad. I hope you all got a chance to watch it. I never really knew how blessed we really were to be able to hear from Prophets and Apostles of God every six months. I love it! I learned a lot. I loved Elder Ballard's talk on missionary work and I felt kind of guilty when he told the missionaries to make sure that you tell your family about your studies and the things that you are learning. I feel like i could do a lot better at that.
Earlier this week we went over to a members house and she threw a little party and we had mexican tres leches! It was so good! But for birthdays here, the mexican tradition is to smash the cake in the birthday mans face after the song. Its called a Molida. So the song ended and they smashed a cupcake in my face! And it wasnt just a little smash. It was like frosting up the nose, and I was blowing frosting out for the next couple days haha! It was awesome. Hopefully i can bring that mexican tradition home and start using it there after the mish. Im sure you guys would like that :)
Thanks everyone! You guys are awesome. Have a killer week and remember who you are!
