This past week has been full of awesome things.
First off, summer is finally coming to an end.
It rained so hard the other day, it was beautiful. When it rains here, not only do people get excited because they are no longer living in an oven, but it is also a free shower for them. Yes. Even the elderly people. They will go outside with their bar of soap and take a free shower. It's quite funny to watch (I promise they are properly clothed).
Second, I finally get to experience my first baptism! The wait seems to have been an eternity, but it's so worth it. He is 9 years old and his name is Jedrick. He has such clean and pure eyes and a little lisp, and even though that's adorable, I have an even harder time understanding him. But it's okay because we are good friends.
Third, I love my companion, Sister Mina. It is such a blessing to have a companion that you get along with. And that doesn't mean you don't have problems sometimes. But the love just grows stronger every day.
Missions are awesome. Just a quick shout out to my sister Lexie for getting her mission call to Orlando, Florida! I am so happy for her. She will enter the MTC on August 12 (the exact day of my 1/2 mark). And even though I will be sad that I don't get to see her for longer, I am so excited that she gets to experience this life-changing awesomeness too.
Love you Lou!
Thank you for all your prayers and support:)
