This week was great because Yulieth and Lysandra got baptized! (They are ten and eight! Super adorable!) And their dad, Uvaldo, got to baptize them! It was a very happy day! We have been working with Uvaldo the whole time I've been here to help him prepare to receive the Aaronic Priesthood. He was super nervous to baptize them, but everything turned out great and they were so happy! He got to stand in the circle for their confirmations the next day too.
We did a lot of finding this week and only managed to find two new investigators, but they are pretty cool! It is a mom and daughter we found knocking doors. Their names are Alberta and Lesley. We had a lot of luck with the last Lesley, so we will see what happens! 😊
Yesterday President Mortensen invited us all to fast only for gratitude and not to ask for anything. I became a little more aware of how much I have been blessed with! Even though life can be hard sometimes, I have so much to be thankful for! If any of you are ever feeling sad this week, I would invite you to think of all of the awesome things in your lives! I love this scripture in 2 Nephi 9:52, "remember the words of your God; pray unto him continually by day, and give thanks unto his holy name by night. Let your hearts rejoice."
Have an awesome week!!!

|This is Giselle and she left for her mission today! She got baptized around two years ago and is awesome! She's going to kill it down in the Houston South Mission. This is me at her party pretending she already has a tag 😜|
