We had Angelas and Lesli's baptizm saturday. It went just great. There wasnt many members cause we have to do the baptism in the church in another part of town cause ours is closed. They picked me to baptize them so i was glad to do that. i always like doing the baptizing part cause then you dont have to give a talk hah Then Angela and Lesli got confirmed yesterday in church. like i said we had a bunch of investigaters in church too there was alot of people! We were in this building and it was packed. It was a good testimony meeting, yes like always Captain started the meeting off, he jumped up and ran up right after bishop. hah theres never the awkward silent waiting moment in testimony meetings here too. The members are so quick to get up here. We have sacrament last now and we had our investigater class right before so we were all together so when sacerment started we had a whole row with all our investigaters hah it was sweet. Ponito was there for his first time, he loved it! and Lilian was there and she brought one of her daughters too.
Unfortunatly Angel was busy this week again but he should be there next week. We have our baptizmal date for Ponito the 23 of june and hes so ready! We also set a goal for the 23 with lilian but shes still waiting for an answer but shes been reading alot in el libro de mormón and shes been to church twice and she came to the mothers day activity last week, she was there with the relief society laughing and have fun with their weird old lady games they play haha no offense.. But lilian will totally get an answer!
Also were gonna set a goal with Angel possibly next lession, weve just been having the best lessions with him everytime! We gave him a book of mormon last time and he was pretty pumped to read it. Everythings going great! I hope my comps cool! We´ll see! To your questions, no church isnt much like at home its alot more entertaining here! hah Im not sure why they like hot chocolate cause its hot even in the morning. No i havent lost or gained any weight still hah and Danilo won the elections. Hows the wheelchair, mom? hah those stories were pretty funny!
Love you guys! Elder Cowley
