May 15th, 2012

Hi everyone!
I hope everyone spent Mother's Day with your moms. :) If I were home, I know I would of that's for sure. Well on Saturday we had a baptism!! Claudia got baptized! She wanted to get baptized at 10:00 a.m. early huh? haha I didn't have a problem at that time since we wake up at 6:30 a.m. anyways. Everyone else had trouble waking up I'm sure. But the baptism was amazing and spiritual. She's really happy she's baptized now because she's been waiting for more than 3 years to get baptized. I know that everyone has their time to get baptized. Then on Sunday we had another baptism. Francisco got baptized. It was a great weekend!

I was able to skype my family for mother's day too. It was great seeing my family, family De Jesus, family Vasquez, family Hafen, Erik Espinoza, and Erick Garcia. I really miss everyone but I didn't get homesick. Everyone looks great and I know sooner than I know it, I'll be heading home. Time goes by fast! We skyped at the Hale's home and they're a really nice family. They let us use their ipads and they gave us dinner before we had to go to Fancisco's baptism. I wish I could go back to Sunday! haha After the baptism, Cate Pacheco (she served a mission in Peru) gave us a ride to Logan to do exchanges. My companion went to Logan and Sister Gott who only has 2 months left came here with me. I was a bit nervous because I had to do all the planning and tell her where to go. So on Monday, it was a lot of fun! Sister Gott is awesome! We had a good time and had a few lessons. We found new people to teach and we had a referral and we went to contact him and found him! We're meeting him (Yonny) tomorrow at 8:30 a.m. We did service too and we pulled weeds. It looked like a jungle! But it was a lot of fun. We had a good laugh while pulling weeds. Well I hope everyone is doing awesome and miss you all. Write me people! Trust me, your letters are very much needed! I need to know what's going on. :) Love you all! Adios!
