Sebastian's Baptism

Hey everyone!

So this week was good. A little crazy but... Sebastian finally got baptized!!!!!
Here are some pictures from his baptism:

It stinks a little though becasue my other comp Elder Segura didn't get to see it. So we had changes this week. Elder Segura is in Melo now. I am here with Elder Alvey from Ogden UT.

He is really tall. He is 2 meters. thats 6 ft 6.

So fun news.... This change 4 Brazilians came to our mission. These are the first brazilians that we have had in our mission my whole time here.  The weirder thing.... We were talking about what the changes could be. We guessed that I would probably be District Leader again and I also guessed that Elder Dinkel would be training. In Elder Dinkel's ward the bishop's wife had a dream that a brazilian would becoming to the area. And well it came true! it was really crazy. It's funny because they are the only elders in the mission  that don't know english or spanish. The good thing is that spanish and portuguese are super similar. They were in the MTC in Brazil for only 6 weeks. Elder Tampellini is the elder in my district. He is from Sao Paulo. He speaks spanish fairly well, mostly just has a very obvious Portuguese accent. And every once in a while he throws out a portuguese word. But im excited to get to practice for real now. 

So the baptism was great. We had a lot of problems, all of which I will not tell here but in the end everything was great, his parents both came and they loved it. It really might help them to start progressing.

Today we invited our district over and we are going to make Krispy Kreme Doughnuts! :) yum....

I can't believe that school is almost over, that's crazy.
