Alma 32:16

Hola Familia y mis amigos,

This week was really legit. Natali was baptized!!! :D She looked so cute waiting for us on Sunday morning all dressed in white.

Elder Ramírez and I had to wake up at 5 in the morning to go and fill up the baptismal font. Elder Conidaris told me that it took 3 hours atleast to fill up. So at 5:45 we ended up starting to fill up the font after cleaning it out. After that, we went back to bed and woke up at 6:30 to get ready for church. The baptism was supposed to start at 8:45 before church.

We got to the church at 8:30 and needless to say that the church was a little flooded.... :/  Apparently the font only takes 2 hours to fill up and so we spent the next 30 minutes cleaning up all of the water. :D Man we are so smart. But its ok, the baptism was wonderful.

There also were a lot of investigators there. The family of the bishop ended up showing up and there were about 4 girls that are studying in college. They invited Elder Ramírez, Myself, and Maxi (their cousin) to go and visit them one day to give them the lessons. They said that they felt something different as Natali got baptized.

We also had Carmen come to church! She had to leave early (after 30 minutes) because she felt sick...  She works until 7 in the morning at a bar. So she is way cool! Hopefully we can help her out to stop smoking and help her with her family and such.

We also received transfers. I am still here with Elder Ramírez in Alta Gracia. We got 2 new elders in the district. Elder Yazzi and Elder Matheson. they should be some great additions to the team.

We should have another baptism this week. The dad of Marianela was getting back active so that he could be able to baptize her. So now we have to see what the bishop says about it all.

We are still working with Rosa and Mariela and their family. They´ve been out of town for the holidays and so we haven´t been able to talk to them much.

Also, Elder Conidaris is finally in his house. He should be at his house this wednesday and so you might be getting an unexpected visit from him!

This week was really cool with my studies. I tried learning morea bout faith and I LOVE chapter 32 of Alma. It was awesome to start learning about the different ways that i can start putting it into practice.

I love you all and I hope that you are all great!

Elder Gray
