this week our investigator got baptized. we could see the joy that she had last monday. after p-day we went to the church to make sure that everything was set up ok. (we assigned some ward members to set everything up and to fill the font). then we just waited around until 7 o’clock. the service was really good. a lot of her non-member family was there and i could tell that they felt something special. we are going to try to see whats up with them. but i’m telling you the best feeling that i have ever felt in my life is watching the joy that people have when they come out of the water and knowing that you helped them feel that joy.
last week we found some new people to teach and we were able to put a baptismal date with one of the guys. he is a super old farmer dude that is in a wheelchair. he cant hear very well so it is harder to teach him but he said that he wants to be clean from all of his sins. so as long as he is willing we are willing to help with that. we will see what happens to him this week.

so the big new this week is that chile won the copa de américa yesterday against argentina. it is a huge tournament where all of the countries of america play against each other in soccer. yesterday was pretty crazy cause everyone was getting set up to watch the game. when chile won the streets were crazy. we were already in the house. everyone went into the streets to celebrate. it was crazy but it was cool to watch.
I got the above picture from this news site.
so the last thing is that tomorrow we get our new mission president. everyone is pretty nervous to see what is going to happen and change. it is sad to see see president warne leave but im excited to learn from a new president. we will see what happens.
i love the mission and i love what im learning. the mission is great. i know that Jesus is the Savior of the world and that the book of mormon is true. just live the gospel and you will be blessed. i know that these things are true.
