David is Baptized!!!

David was so excited for his baptism!  We went to his house and helped his mom make empanadas and cake to share at the baptism.  Yrma makes empanadas for a living, and they are some of the best empanadas I've tasted!

Pipo, Yrma, David, Arnaldo, and Mia - David's mother, brothers, and niece.  Arnaldo was able to baptize David, which made the evening all the more special.  Arnaldo's wife, Carmen, was called out of town suddenly to attend to the medical needs of her father, but we know she was there in spirit.
Eli and Cinthia Jahnel (two awesome girls in the branch who just returned from missions to New York New York and Florida Tampa, respectively), David and Arnaldo, and the missionaries :)
After the baptism - we are so grateful to everyone who came to show their support for David and his family!

Finding our new companions in the terminal
tripped on a wire and tore my shoe . . . 
my companion did my hair this morning :)
My crazy companion!  She's really awesome :)
The gospel is incredible!  It has been such a treat to witness changes in David and his mother during these last few weeks.  The gospel really does help us to be more kind, more happy, more grateful, more selfless, more pure, more Christlike.  I am grateful for the Savior, for His mercy and grace, that help us to overcome our weaknesses and become more like Him.  We are children of God with so much potential! 

 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.

I know that this is true!  I love you all.
