Well this week was great! General Conference was fantastic, and a lot seemed to stick out for me. I (like my brother) loved Elder Oaks' talk from Priesthood session, along with several other speakers that talked about the answers to my questions for General Conference.
Also, We had a baptism! Tadeo was baptized last night.(he's the young man in the accompanying picture.) He's super excited to be baptized and want's to be a missionary in a few years once he's old enough. His mom isn't sure how she'll handle that, but she has some time to figure it out. (He's only 12, so they have some time.)

Yesterday started a little crazy. We had everything planned out as to what we were doing all day to make sure everything was ready for the baptism, but there was an issue at our food appointment where the member who signed up wasn't going to have time to make us anything, so he told us to go to a cocina (little restaurant, kinda like a diner) and he'd meet us there. Well we got there and he was nowhere to be found. Then he texted us saying he's running a little late and that we should start eating and he would be there shortly. Well, long story short (too late), we left the food appointment late and caused us to be late getting to the baptismal service. They couldn't start without us since we had the program, so the service started late. (~6:15) We were a little worried since the other ward was baptizing at 7, but we figured they could wait if need be. President and Sister Hall came to the baptism and everything came together from there. The service went beautifully, the spirit came strong, and it was a great experience for all involved; and to top it off we ended at 6:58. Just in time for the other baptism to start. Can't get much better than that!
That's all for this week, Nos Vemos!
