So this week was absolutely fantastic!! We had Zone Conference and it was absolutely amazing, we talked a lot about the Book of Mormon and the power that it has! To all you missionaries and member missionaries-- ¨The Book of Mormon can convert without us, but we cannot convert without the Book of Mormon.¨ This Book changes lives, please share it with your friends, family, strangers, acquaintances, everyone. It truly does change lives, and I know it's true!
This week Magdalena got baptized.   We had a hard time getting her in the water because of her wheelchair, and we had a chair waiting in the water so she could sit down, and then we took out the chair and we put it back after, but one problem. Magdalena floated. We took out the chair and instead of going down, she went up, and I had to pull her down into the water, in the process, I went completely under the water, like Alma. (Mosiah 18:14) And after Alma had said these words, both Alma and Helam were buried in the water; and they arose and came out of the water rejoicing, being filled with the Spirit. So yeah, then our entire ward started making fun of me saying that I almost drowned.  Hahahahaha, it was awesome!
