Week #40

Week 9 in Valle Azapa!!!! BAPTISM!!!

Oh my!!

Well this week was just great!!! There wasn't much excitement at the beginning of the week, just normal daily missionary stuff. This week we did a ¨semana blanca¨(White Week) where just focus on the work and don't talk about stuff from back home and at the end of the week we do a fast. It was hard but since we had a BAPTISM!!!! it mad things a lot easier!!!! Yep,Saturday Elder Montgomery experienced his first baptism as a missionary which was a touching moment as a Papito! More importantly Antonella who was baptized, enjoyed it a lot and it was really special because she has been waiting 3 years to do this!!! It was a special opportunity to be the Elders to be there when she could make this first step in the Gospel!!!

Other than that these first few weeks with Elder Montgomery we`ve seen a lot of difficulties and obstacles but now I feel we`ve passed through this trial of faith and we`ve seen the first of many more blessings to come!!!! Love you all and hope you`re well!!!
