Hey all. :)

I really don't have a lot of time to write today. I don't even have pictures for y'all. Sorry. But I do have good news! All three of our wonderful baptismal candidates were baptized on Saturday! Yay! Satan always manages to bring up some last minute trial. Jorge was going to have to change his baptismal date to the 16th ofmarch, because he couldn't come to the confirmation on Sunday. But we worked things out, and everything went wonderful. :)
So, Gloria, Santiago, and Jorge all got baptized on the 23rd, and confirmed on the 24th. And I'm really sorry I don't have pictures. I'll get them to you next week. But it was amazing. We had so much support from the ward. Over 60 people came to the baptismal service!!! :) It was wonderful. :)
So now we're working with Isabel. Trying to get her to talk toher husband about the marriage. I'm pretty sure everything is going to work out, but a wedding has some very expensive traditions attached to it, like the ring, and the reception, and even just paying the notary for the service. So. We're trying to work things out. The best thing is that they're not against it, so the hardest battle is already won. So with a lot of faith and prayer, everything will turn out. Isabel has been telling us that she wants to get baptized with her husband and 2 boys. We told her that would be wonderful.:) They have a baptismal date for the16th of March.
We're also working with Lizeth, who lives with Gloria and Santiago. She's progressing really fast, and has absolutely loved learning and attending church. She also has a date for March 16th.
Sorry this is so short. Like I said, we're really...apurados. Anyway. Love y'all. Take care.
