So to start off, HAPPY BIRTHDAY TAYLOR!!!! I know it´s not until Saturday but I hope you have a great birthday week :) I´ll be thinking of you on Saturday :)So, this week was pretty great. We had a baptism yesterday which was really great. Hermina´s daughter in-law, Priscilla was baptized. So, another crazy story with this story. We got to church yesterday morning and I went to go start the font. You just turn the knob and shut the door and obviously it just fills up...well...normally it just fills up. Well, I don´t know exactly what happened but there´s a switch that you flip to drain the font and I think someone actually tapped it because another member said that during church he saw that the font was draining and filling up so he stopped the drain. Well, it´s 11:30 after sacrament meeting, we look at the font and there isn´t even a foot of water. Also, the chapel was low on water as well. (This happens every so often where you just don´t have water and the font uses the reserve water but it comes out slower.) So Sister Cameron and I just started scrambling to try and find a solution. We thought about going to a pool near by but everyone said there are just a bunch of drunks at the pool on Sunday. We thought about going to the beach but Priscilla didn´t want to be baptized at the beach because she didn´t want everyone to see her. haha, so what ended up happening, we left the font to fill up a little more and she just sat in the water with her legs out in front and she was baptized laying down in the water. They had to repeat the ordinance two times because the first time her legs popped up and the second time her hand was out of the water. But, in the end, it all worked out and she was baptized :) haha, but at least she can say that she was baptized laying down. I´ll attach a photo of how shallow the water was in the font. But as we always say... "Só batiza!" "Just baptize!"
And I love that talk from Pres. Hinckley as well. We got a little binder when we arrived in the field and it has that talk in it. I love the 10 things that you should bring home from a mission :)
And the child´s pose crying, haha I laughed when I read that as well :)
I love you all the MOSTIEST!
