Bautismo al fin!

Well, this week was probably the best one in Corinto. First off, we did divisions all the way to Somotillo. That includes driving by the volcano Cristobal for an hour and a half in a small micro-bus full of really sweaty people. It’s always and adventure. I worked with an Elder from Ogden named Elder Cook and Elder Walker went to Corinto to work with Elder Paau. We went and met some of their investigators and some recent converts. It’s a nucleus there, so they only have like 20 members in the whole town. All except two are recent converts. They have sure made a breakthrough. I had the privilege to meet a guy who got baptized that will probably the branch president when it becomes a branch. The guy is super awesome and loves the church. 

    Then we did divisions later with an Elder Named Elder Mejia from Honduras in Corinto. He lived in Spain for a few years before the mission, so he taught me a bit about Spain. It was pretty fun. Lots of moving around in the bus and transportation this week. 

    Best of all, On Friday night we had a baptism! Alison is the cousin of a more recent convert named Carla and is super happy to be a member. She says she wants to serve a mission and is going to seminary now. The baptism went well, lots of people showed up, and another youth named Amulek Baptized her as his first baptism he has done. Then on Saturday we had an activity with the youth and we ate tacos together. The bishop is really cool here and works hard with the youth. We did divisions quite a few times this week with the youth and with some members. The photo in front of the baptismal font are the members. The one that is squatting down is the member Andres that works with us each day throughout the week.

That’s about all this week. Love you guys so much!
