A Baptism!!

Dear Fam and Friends,

Well it was another chill week. We didn't really do anything. Just some good hard working. Oh and we had a BAPTISM!!! whoo!! I sent a couple pics. It's a way tight 19 year-old kid named Alex. He's a stud dude and we're gonna get him to go on a mission now. He'd be a great mission. It's cool to baptize young mission age kids. They're boss. It was a good baptism.

Oh and my companion and I have been eating way too many sweets this week. Ugh. He actually got sick and threw up because of it. First, in a store here called Supermaxi (its like a Walmart) we found Betty Crocker brownie mix for only 2 dollars. Sick!! So we made brownies!! And they were amazing. Almost just like you make them mom. And then we had a ton of chocolate cake this week. Like 3 different families gave us cake. Soo good!! but too much dulce (sweetness). I didn't get that sick though. But I'm not sure how I'll be able to hold down all the deserts from the states though when i get back. They just are a lot better there.
Oh and one cool story. When my companion and I don't have an appointment late at night we go contacting. And one day we didn't have an appointment. And we contacted for a while, but we didn't have any success. And it got pretty late. It was about 8:45 at night and so we were going to do like one more contact and go home. So we knocked on a door and a 35 year old man came out and let us into his house to share a message. We talked for 15 minutes and invited them to baptism and they accepted!! Whoo!! They weren't able to go to church this week because they were out of town, but they are a great family and are excited to go to church next week. They are the Marge Family and it's a dad a mom and 3 kids. Good family and my companion and I are just praying that they progress. Along with a couple other families we've found. The Lopez and Mora Families. Hopefully we can get them all to church this week!
So that's what's going on here. Enjoy the pictures. There are also some from this Park here in Ambato called the Parque de la Familia. It's sick! It's like a park in the states almost. We're gonna do an activity there next week playing baseball and soccer and grilling up some burgers. hopefully it goes wel!! Love you all sooo much!!

Con Amor,
