This week was carnaval and so everyone is throwing buckets of water at people, so we got pretty wet this week haha. We were leaving our mamitas house on Thursday after lunch, and as we got onto the street and we got showered with water balloons and buckets of water. We got soaking wet, and had to change out of the wet clothes. On Saturday and Sunday we were inside just about the entire day. Today and tommorrow we will be indoors aswell. It is a pretty crazy celebration here. We were able to find and commit 4 new baptismal dates this week so that was great.
Richard was baptized yesterday and his mom and sister accepted baptismal dates. He wanted to be baptized in a river. so we found this pond that looked pretty cool and we did the baptism there. The water was freezing cold, but it was a neat experience. Yesterday I was able to confirm him. Yesterday he also recieved the Aaronic Priesthood, so it was a very eventful day for Richard. This week was really great and it was neat to see the many miracles that happened for Richard to be baptized. I hope that every week can be as great as this week. Oh and the Broncos won, so that makes it even greater!!! haha.
