Dear Fam. and Friends of Elder Kimball,
Another great week has been witnessed by the Elders Kimball and Nielsen. They were hard at work this week. They really had thier focuses on Vladimir and Marco. Vladimir has been known to give scares before so when the Elders called him Saturday night for his baptismal interview, and he said he wasn´t going to make it, they were disappointed. They expressed thier love for the little Ecuadorian man and his heart was obviously touched because within 5 minutes he was in the Church ready for his interview.

He passed! What a blessing! Crazy how the Lord works! So Vladimir will be baptized this Saturday at 7 pm. He asked if both of us could baptize him....Haha oooo Vladimir...  I told him that Elder Nielsen could baptize him, and that I could confirm him the Sunday after. He happily agreed. Elder Nielsen and I are beyond belief with all of these miracles. Vladimir was a very stubborn man when we first started teaching him, but his heart has changed before out eyes.

Unfortunately Marco was unable to attend this Sunday because he was at the coast.  So his baptismal date has been moved to next Saturday, the 28th. We are hoping that he can complete with this baptimal date. Just having a daily contact with Vladimir and Marco will help them know that we really do care about them!

We went to Teleferico today with the District and we took some sweet pics, and as you can see Elder Nielsen and I had a similar high school wardrobe. Go Cougs! Well I love you all and hope y'all are safe!

Much love,
Elder Kimball!
