Week 40 Half Way! 9 months! Another baptism -Jose Roberto


THIS WEEK I COMPLETED 9 MESES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HALF-WAY mark!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 

Wow time goes by soooo fast!!!!!!!!!! haha Here in our mission when you have 9 months we take photos (a photo shoot) acting like we are pregnant. haha It was so much fun! I have already created 4 bellies and now it was my turn! I will try to send LOTS of photos. IT WAS SO MUCH FUN! And afterwards we went and had pizza at Pedros Pizzaria! And he made me a chocolate pizza with a number 9 on top with STRAWBERRIES!!!!! It was sooo yummy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! haha

SO many of you asked about Easter and sorry I didn't really have time to respond last week. 

SO Easter is the exactly the same- except they do not hide plastic eggs. They hide HUGE chocolate eggs!!!!!!! You buy HUGE EGGS and give them to other people. The picture I sent last week was me with one of a smaller sized chocolate egg! It was soooo YUMMY! (:These eggs could be so chocolate or have presents in side. It is really cool. 

I also had a batismo this week!!!!!!!!!!!!! He name is Jose Roberto! I do not have much time to tell you his whole story. But he really was a miracle; We had been working all week to find one new person to teach, but couldn't find anyone. And a Saturday at 8:45pm we meet Jose and we invited him to come to church that Sunday; (the next day 9am.) He arrived at church 8:30am and stayed to watch a baptism. And after the baptism he told us that he wanted to be baptized. We knew him for 3 hours and he knew this was the church of God. It was amazing. After that we began preparing him and he was BAPTIZED yesterday. We asked him if you wanted to wait until after conference. But he wanted this sunday so we had a batismo after the priesthood session Sunday morning!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And we had 15 members of the quorum there. And Pedro gave the talk on baptism and Pedrinho and Joao gave the opening and closing prayers. It was a very special day.
