Flood! Oops

hi  what a week! but it was a good week. 

first off... on friday we had the wedding of gustavo and tatiana. it was supppper suppper good. they have  been waiting for this moment for a long time and it finally happened. we went to their house early in the day to help with everything and we were there all afternoon but its ok cause if we weren’t there i don’t know what they would have done. at 6 o'clock we went to the church and by 7 they were married. it was a really good moment. one of the happiest of my mission. there is no words that could describe the joy that i felt for them. they were both an emotional wreak. it was a happy moment. 

on sunday we had the baptism. i have never been so stressed out in my life. we had to run home twice in the middle of church because we forgot all of the paperwork for their baptism and then during the 3rd hour he told us that he forgot his tie and a shirt. (read the next paragraph for another reason)  but the baptism was special . there were 76 people that stayed after to watch it so we couldn't have been more happy for that. the bishop did the baptism and when they both came out of the water they were balling their eyes out. it was a good moment

ok funny story of the week...... WE FLOODED THE CHUCH. we got to the church early to fill up the font. and we only turned on the hot water. after sacrament meeting it was about half way filled up and it was really hot so we turned off the hot water and then turned on the cold water all the way and locked the door so no kids would die. 30 minutes later my comp and i were in the back of the church in a random classroom filling out paper work when we heard a lot of commotion outside. the font had overflowed and was going all over the church. turns out we were the only one with the keys to the font so they couldn’t turn off the water. i will always have in my mind the image of me running down the hallway in my suit with 2 inches of water on the ground to turn off the water. it was so funny. so turns out we only flooded the cultural hall, the kitchen and some closets because the font is in the back corner of the church. we then spent the next 45 minutes pushing out all of the water and mopping up. (the church has tile floors) the bishop and every one else was really cool about it. they all thought it was really funny. makes for a good story. 

there isn't really anything else so say. thanks for the love everyone. i know that this church is true and that Jesus Christ is our Savior and brother. i know that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God and that we have a modern day prophet today.   Click on this link to learn more about what Elder Magnusson is teaching.
