this week was amazing, super busy with the white night we had this saturday, crazy how many people in our stake got baptized, a solid 26! holy cow, the lord is in the work right now! we literally spent all week doing baptismal interviews for our district and filling out papers for the people getting baptized, and really, we didnt even do much, it was the teamwork of our ward, our captain Jesus Christ, and the Holy Ghost testifying to those who were converted. amazing week. then the saturday finally came and the program was amazing, it was in the stake center, they had a webcam setup in the baptismal font and projected in the sacrament hall, so everyone could see. so cool. then to end the program, the young women of our ward sang a hymn, "oh my father" while I played the piano to "come thou fount" the stake center was Packed! i was nervous, but the spirit helped us, i think it sounded pretty awesome! haha one of the coolest experiences so far...
Then to celebrate after, we went to the Ole super market next to the stake center, and elder hallet and I split a huge tres leches cake! delish! haha
in between all of the amazing spiritual experiences with the white night, I...
cooked domplines, coditos, locreo, and banana milkshakes, super delish.
had intercambios with elder negro and elder carillo, from mexico and guatamala, super cool guys.
saw a mob chasing a robber late one night, that was crazy.
and then last but not least, we went to the nicest mall in the DR, called SAMBIL, and really its like your in the US, all american food, music, design, scary, and made you feel super trunky, but super worth it, its elder Ramos´s birthday today and thats what he wanted to do so we went. we ate at johnny rockets, saw elder beecher, my first roomate with elder beard, played in this kiddy area, payed to jump on some trampolines, saw elder Guigni and Sauceda from Paraiso oriental, and hit up some batting cages, super fun, then we finished up by buying some KRISPY KREME! wow amazing day. haha
Really has been an amazing transfer, only got one more week left, but all is well, couldnt be happier :)
