Wow, looks like you had quite a week! Thank you sooo very much for all the pictures of Alix´s baptism. I´m glad it all turned out so well. I´m so glad she finally got the chance to come home to the gospel. Thank you for giving her such a warm and loving welcome (: Wow she´s already looking for names to take to the temple? She´s not wasting any time, is she! Speaking of baptisms, we had one this past weekend as well. We had the baptism of Cristian Segovia and his son. Cristian´s family are all members, but he wasn´t, until now. It all turned out very well, except for something went wrong with the font right before the service and water got alllll over the floor. But, with the help of all the members, we were able to clean it up fairly quickly. I was asked last-minute to do a musical number, so I chose to sing Conmigo Quedate, Señor (Abide with me tis Eventide). It turned out VERY well. Everyone afterwards kept going on and on and on about how good it was, haha. I´m always happy to use my gifts to help bring the spirit. All in all, it was a very happy day. So, you´ll never guess what the weather´s like today.... RAIN. This makes the third rainy PDday in a row. I don´t mind too much, because the rain cools things down a lot. It was starting to get pretty warm this past week, and our apartment has been an absolute oven. It´s basically just a concrete box with a window on one end. We have no ventilation whatsoever and no fan. So, rain is good at this point. It also scares away most of the mosquitoes, which are starting to come out. I have bites alllll over. Living here has definitely made me grateful for the things we have in the US. We don´t have cars, so we have to take public transportation (aka buses and trains) which is not entirely enjoyable. We have no ventilation in our apartment, no carpet, sometimes no running water, no washing machine, a toilet that you have to flush by dumping a bucket of water in it, and we hear every single thing that goes on outside during the night. And that´s just a small list! =P I´m still trying to learn this language. I´m able to understand and say a lot more than I was, but I´m not even close to where I need/want to be. I know it takes patience and will come with time, but it´s like learning a new song: I want to play it perfectly right NOW =P. I´ve been pretty good this week. Still trying to adjust and figure everything out, but a lot more comfortable. Sometimes I wonder if I´ll ever figure it out. There´s SO much to learn.... Well, I think that´s all I got for now. No, I don´t have any specific requests for my Christmas package (: Thank you for asking! I love you and miss you all so much.
....And more RAIN!
