Week 58 Baptism
This week we had a baptism of our investigator Maria! Everything went great and she started crying after she came out of the water! It was so sweet and the spirit was so strong in that baptism. I honestly feel that when I go down into the water with investigators, I get cleansed as well from the special spirit that is there and I always feel great coming out of a baptism.

|It has also been raining nonstop this week so that was fun as well! It's starting to clear up a little, but I think there's a little kick left in the storm clouds. We'll see what happens there then. but thats it for this week!|
Week 57 - Story Time
Hey everyone! So this week it rained a ton, and thanks to a poncho I found in the house I didn't get all that soaked! It was still really nice though and it was almost cold in the mornings when it was overcast!
We are prepping the baptism so that's what's going to be happening a lot this week. Asides from that it was all business as usual. My vlogs will definitely tell more, so you should watch them if you have a chance. but yeah short update but I'll have more to tell next week. Love you all! bye!!! have an excellent week!
Week 56 Fardos, Mama Brick, Blessings
I wanted to share an experience from Sunday that I had. We were just coming out of our meetings, or finishing the third hour, and we were talking to someone, when someone taps me on the shoulder and asks if I'm busy. I told him no, and then he tells me a sister needs a blessing. I say ok and grab my comp to find her. We then went into a classroom and asked what was going on. She said her circulation isn't doing well and her veins were bursting in some places and she just ended up not feeling well at all. So my comp anointed and I sealed the blessing. I honestly don't even remember what I said apart from one line, which really impacted her too, which was something like the Lord will never give you anything too hard to handle (more or less because spanish). But after we finished the blessing, she had tears dripping down her face and the spirit was so strong in that room. She then said that it was right, that the Lord will never give us struggles too hard to bear. That was what really hit me this week and that was my experience of the week!
|Elder Johnson and Elder Fardos finally got a pic together!|
|On our drive home from California, Savanna spotted this brick in the ground. We were happy to have little Bryce reminders in many places we visited.|
Week 55 Meeting new Friends!!!
We were able to drive to Reno, Nevada to attend Elder Fowler's homecoming. It was such a sweet experience to finally meet him and his family. It felt like we were catching up with old friends instead of meeting friends for the first time. The visit was wonderful. Bryce was determined we made it there and I'm so glad we did.

We also were able to meet the Fardos Family. Their son Elder Fardos is currently in Chihuahua serving alongside Bryce. They were gracious enough to invite us into their home for a few days. They also took us on a lake trip. The company and weather were perfect!
Elder Fowler surprised each family with a gift from Bryce and Nick (Elder Fardos). He brought each of us back a nametag from our elder. Such a sweet moment. It was the best gift ever!
