A Cool Experience and a picture:)

Alrighty... So, this week has been a week to remember!!! We started out with the hike to the Quebrado de los Cuervos here in 33. It's one of the biggest "mountains" they have in Uruguay. It was actually a super fun hike and we had a great time!!! Then the week was pretty normal up until Thurs!!

Thurs we went to this place called Vergara, it's about an hour away, with an Elderly Elder, Elder Pugmire. We had to help him pack up some stuff from the house out there because they took missionaries out of that area. After we helped him pack up we passed by this girl ,Cristin, that was supposed to get baptized but then the missionaries got taken out. We passed by her to see how she was doing, because I was the only one who knew were she lived. She was doing great!! We decided that she was ready to get baptized that day because there are no missionaries there, it would've been hard to do other days... So, luckily, Elder Pike had brought baptism clothes and I brought baptismal clothes for her, so we started to plan her baptism. We didn't have a key to the church or anything, and there's only 2 active priesthood holders in this branch, one lives an hour away. So we got a key to the church, but he didn't have a key to the font.... .So after a long time, we decided that the only place we could do the baptism was the river... So we stopped by her house, she's only 9, picked her up and went to the river. When this Priesthood holder got there, we had 2 witnesses for the baptism and we did it, in the cold, muddy river. Luckily there was no complications because she has heart problems, but it all went great!!!! Unfortunatley we didn't have camera's, but let me tell you, it was an experience!!! That was my awesome experience of the week!!!

Liliana decided, for now, "not to get baptized".... We actually think it's because of her boyfriend, so that's kind of crappy, but we'll get there!!

We only had Jefferson come to church, this 10 year old kid. We weren't expecting it!!! he's kind of a punk around his friends, but we didn't even invite him and he came to church so Vamos Arriba!!! Easter was kind of  a bummy day... There was nothing special done at church or anything, just another day. And our new MP is a super capo. He'll stick of for every single one of us for everything!!!! I'm not sure what his focus is but I definitely know he cares about us beyond belief!!!! Oh and I'll be staying with Elder Pike for another change so that'll be great!!!!!

(For those of you that know Bailey, you know that the buzz cut in this picture is NOT LIKE HIM!!!!  He said that he was cutting his hair himself and the attachment fell off, so he ended up having to buzz it:))

This drawing was done by a child in Elder Oliver's ward because he thought he would be leaving the area and he wanted to give him something.
