That's right! The Aguilar Benitez family got baptized! I'm a little sad I couldn't be there for the baptism, but Elder Espinoza just sent me the photos with the big news.
We had a lesson on Saturday with a family of recent converts (they were baptized about 3 months ago), and we found out that one of the daughters isn't baptized. I'll paraphrase the conversation:
"I've been thinking about it a lot lately, and I feel bad because the entire family is baptized and I'm not."
"Hmmm... When were ou thinking ou wanted to be baptized?"
"I don't know, you guys can tell me the date."
"How about next Saturday?"
"Woah, what? I'm sure I want to do it... but I'm not THAT sure..."
At the end of the lesson, she did accept the date, but we'll probably change it to the 23rd just so we can check the commandments and stuff we need to. Either way, it was one of those really unexpected miracles after a week of hard work and seemingly little success.
I'll finish my email for this week with some pictures:
Here's my new zone
In our house, there's only one place where the signal reaches, so if we need to take reports and are desperate, things get pretty interesting...
And that's everything for this week. We'll see what sorts of adventures this next week holds for me here in Tecámac.
