That night we had the baptism of Alberto. It was supposed to start at 6 but because only Alberto´s family was there at 6 we waited until 6:30. The service was sweet until the actual baptism took place. For a reason totally unknown to me, Elder Ramirez refused to fill the font higher than knee height. Not to mention, the water was freezing. It took three tries to get Alberto under, and at the end he was saying "no more, no more." It was heartbreaking, funny, sad, and wonderful all at the same time. I wish they would let us to baptisms in the river. It would be so much easier. Overall, it was a crazy night but really great. I participated in the confirmation of Alberto, and there was a really sweet spirit.
I also bore my testimony in Sacrament Meeting. I just shared how grateful I am for the commandments and the atonement.
Monday I was real sick. Vomiting, diarrhea, everything. Not the best feeling.
Wish me the best of luck with my new comp. His name is something like Elder Quispe.
On Saturday we had a cool day. In the morning we went to a member´s finca, or farm. We spent pretty much the entire day doing service. They own a bunch of land in the middle of nowhere with a house and farm. We raked for a really long time.It was a cool experience.
Literally the hardest thing for people here is coming to church. Also, our appointments get dropped so often. People are just so laid back that they just say, "Oh another day." It is a bit frustrating.
