Maria got baptized this weekend! It was so amazing and the Spirit was so strong! The hot water has been broken in the church for several months. We called and they said it wouldn't be fixed by the baptism because they needed to order a part. So, the night before the baptism we asked a bunch of different members for their pozole pots. We were all prepared to boil water for the baptism, when the water decided to work! It worked so well it was too hot for the baptism! But the baptism itself was amazing! She said it felt like a weight had been lifted, and that she really felt like she had been born again.

Maria's baptism!

We have another baptism this weekend! Samuel will be getting baptized, and is so excited!

This week we started volunteering at the elementary school! It is super exhausting to work with 25 first graders, but it is really fun too! We are helping them read and do math. They all have very interesting names. One of the girls is named Im'unique. The kids are all super cute! They call us Ms C and Ms B.

This week I officially hit my halfway mark! It is crazy! I feel like I just got here. To celebrate we went to this macaroni and cheese restaurant.

Halfway done 
This week I have been thinking about miracles. The Lord allows me to see miracles everyday and I feel so blessed. I was reading in Mormon 9 about miracles.

     18 And who shall say that Jesus Christ did not do many mighty miracles? And there were many mighty        miracles wrought by the hands of the apostles.

     19 And if there were miracles wrought then, why has God ceased to be a God of miracles and yet be an unchangeable Being? And behold, I say unto you he changeth not; if so he would cease to be God; and he ceaseth not to be God, and is a God of miracles.

     20 And the reason why he ceaseth to do miracles among the children of men is because that they dwindle in unbelief, and depart from the right way, and know not the God in whom they should trust.

Many people think that God no longer allows miracles to happen, or think that miracles stopped when Christ was no longer on Earth. I know that miracles happen everyday, and that Heavenly Father loves us so much! Here is a new video the Church came out with about the First Vision. You should all go watch it!

I love and miss you all!
