-We had a baptism!! An 8 year old of a family we're teaching decided to be baptized! His parents are still working out all of their paperwork so that they can get married, but they're super pilas and are going to do great in supporting their son!
-All of our converts have gone to church this month! That means that we're not just baptizing to baptize, but to keep our converts in the gospel too!
-We had divisions this Wednesday. Divisions are when we separate (one of us here in Ribera and the other in another area) and work with other sisters from different areas. These 2 sisters that we worked with are super duper pilas and we definitely learned a lot from them! I went to Prados (an area that really isn't too far from mine, and the area my comp was in before coming to Ribera!) and DIED from the heat. It's really the same climate as our area, but they were burning a bunch of trash, so it was extra extra hot.
-One of our positive investigators changed schools! She was studying every Sunday, but she changed schools and is now studying Saturdays! She came to church and said that she knows she's going to be blessed for making that change. She's so cool. We're planning on her baptism March 2nd. She just has to stop drinking coffee (one of her Personal Progress goals) and talk to her parents for permission. We're suuuuuuuper excited!
-We're going to the temple tomorrow! The temple isn't open Mondays, so that's why we're writing Monday. But only today is different. And tomorrow we're going to go to the temple (really early! we have to be ready to travel at 6 am, so we probably have to wake up at 3ish. yuck.), go to the distribution center, eat as a zone and then go play some games or something. woohoo! i'll send pictures, don't worry :)
-Because we're going to the temple tomorrow (bright and early), 2 missionaries from an area far away are here with us in our area! We're going to do divisions and visit a ton of people! And then they're going to sleep in our house the night and we'll all go off to the temple together :)
Well, that's what's going down in Ribera del Rio. My companion and I are working super hard and doing some great stuff :) Thank you for all of your prayers!
