This week was awesome! We did so much and I am getting used to the area, the food, the people, and the gangster music. It’s pretty legit here in Villanueva. Everyone is so nice.
This week we had a feast at this one member’s house, it was awesome. My real area is Brisas del Plan, it’s a little poorer than Villanueva, but it’s cool. We went to teach this one guy in his house and the AP was there with us. The investigator was asking insanely hard questions that are so deep and crazy. I didn’t understand a lot because of the language barrier, but I think he just needs to go to church.
On Saturday we had the baptism for Arnaldo, he is so cool! He wanted the patriarch to baptize him. We got there and my companion had to jump through a window to enter the font, because there wasn’t a key for the door then we started to fill the font, it was great!! After Arnaldo came, we and the patriarch helped him so he knew where to go.

Sunday was great. We are singing at Stake Conference next week and are singing himnos in the choir. We practice a ton every week.
Teaching is going well. There was this one time where I taught this one investigator, Guillermo. He is super funny and never wears a shirt. Anyways, we watched, “The Restoration” and the spirit was so strong. We also taught about the Apostasy. He is a mechanic and had a bunch of screws lying around so I grabbed them and said they represent the pillars of the church and with the death of the apostles, priesthood authority was taken from the earth, revelation ceased, and essential doctrines where lost or corrupted. Through the Prophet Joseph Smith, the Church the Jesus Christ established was restored. We invited him to church and he came. He has a lot of questions, but that’s why we are here. We can help him with his concerns and questions about the church.
This week has been amazing and I hope next week will be even better! :)
