Dear Fam and Friends,
The Familia Yepez got baptized! and Anthony Lazo also! Anthony told me that he is planning to leave for a mission next March so I told him that I'll hold him to it. The day of the baptism was awesome. We got everything ready and thank goodness we had enough baptismal clothes.
Elder Moreira came to the mission without baptism clothes. Guess he didn't quite get the memo that we would be baptizing.

 Also... Hno. William was able to baptize his dad. Elder Moreira baptized Carla and I baptized Anthony. What an experience. Something I will never forget. The 6 of us watching one another enter the waters of baptism on the little stairs that led down into the font. After the baptism, we had a little gathering at the Yepez house for some chicken and rice. What a great meal to round off a great day.....

Well I ended up getting changes. Elder Moreira was sad to see me go (tears were shed) and worse were the Yepez (even more tears were shed.) The time I had in Cangahua was really uplifting. I am currently in Iñaquito which is just a couple more minutes down the road. I am with Elder Neilsen from Parma, Idaho. He will be turning 20 in April. He seems really cool and I am excited to keep getting to know him. I will let you guys know more about Iñaquito next week.

Sorry for such a lame letter but next week should be better. Just want y'all to know that the blessing will come. Just keep moving forward. The blessings might come instantly, tomorrow, next week, 20 years, or in the next life but I know they will come if we put our trust in Him and keep his commandments. After much hard work in Cangahua, I was blessed enough to see the fruits of my labors.
