(mini) Letter 18

Well, this is the last week in yet another cycle here in the mission. Next week, I will be on my third cycle! Well, this week I don't have much time to write, but it's worth it. We have a baptism in about an hour and a half, and we're super excited! Maria Rosa Rodriguez is getting baptised today! Just to refresh your memories, she is an investigators mom (Fernando), she is 93 years old, and she was a tough nut to crack! She was super catholic, and did not like us at all! Well, the Spirit touched her, and now she is getting baptised! Elder Webster and I will both be baptising her because she is very old and weak. It's very exciting, and we are so amazed that she is getting baptised.

Aside from preparing her this week, we have also been teaching a new family. Their name is the Pastor family (mmm tacos al pastor), and they are a part member family. The father, Carlos, is a less active member, but he wants to come back to the church, and this time, bring his family with him. His wife and 2 daughters have been very receptive, and we feel so blessed to have met them.

Right now, we just attended the baptism of a young kid in our ward (he just turned 8). We got a few refrences from his non-member family, and they invited us to eat. Hey, we never turn down a free meal.

Thanks for your letters (especially mom), I am excited to hear that Jon and Tadder and Jannette are serving missions soon! 

Take care everyone, and I'll send pictures soon.

Elder Velazquez
