So many cool things happening out here in Mixquiahuala. First things first:
The Portillo Family got baptized! The day wasn't as crazy as we thought it would be--we were thinking about helping them get married, have their interviews and be baptized all in the same day, but we had a change of plans--so everything came out super smoothly. We went to their "wedding" on Wednesday (it was just a bunch of people crowded into a room while they signed some papers), had their baptismal interviews a few hours later, and then the baptismal service on Thursday. Still slightly hectic, but not too much so.
We also had some more investigators come to church this week, but they both need to get married to their current living partners; darn "free union". Actually one of them told us that she has absolutely no plans/desire to get married, so she just wants to separate from him. You can imagine our reactions of "ummm... I guess that's fine... It's not necessarily the best of the two options, but if that's what you want, then go for it.
In other news, I've decided I'm going to learn French. They had a few extra copies in the offices for a family in Molango, so they let Elder Morales and I snag a couple. It's gonna be awesome.
I also found this really sweet Rubik's cube in the Tianguis a few weeks ago; I never got around to taking a picture until now. Here's what it looks like solved:
...And then you mix it up...
Yeah, pretty loco.
I've also been amping up my photo-bombing abilities.
And last but certainly not least, I finished the Book of Mormon in Spanish once again this morning. I can honestly say and testify that that book contains the words of God. I am incredibly grateful that I was able to finish it before General Conference this weekend; I've been doing a lot to prepare myself spiritually to learn from the words of President Monson and the apostles, and reading the Book of Mormon was one of my goals. Now I get to start in French :D
But seriously, get ready everyone. They're going to announce something big in General Conference. I can feel it in my bones...
