So since they closed an area in the ward where I am serving (there were 4 missionaries and now there are just two) we have spent a lot of time working things out. We have been teaching quite a lot and we saw some good fruit from that. We had quite a few people come to church this week and we had a baptism after Sacrament Meeting. It was quite crazy because we had five investigators that we had to keep tabs on and we had to get the baptism all ready. But in the end, it all worked out. She was baptized. Her name is Ana Paula. She was an investigator that we picked up from the other missionaries. The first time we went there, we said the opening prayer and the first thing she said was, "I want to be baptized on Sunday." It was pretty cool.
Today we went to the house of some other missionaries to cook the food I had gotten for Christmas. We made cookies and pancakes and brownies and maple syrup. It really went quite well in comparison with my other cooking experiences. The syrup was still quite runny but at least it had the taste of maple. Overall it was quite good and the other missionaries liked it too.
I love you all. Have a good week!
