This past week was a great week. We had a baptism on Saturday, found a TON of new investigators, and brought a ton of new people to church. Next week is cambios, and I kind of hope I don't leave the area now because of how many new, positive investigators we found. You never know with cambios who will be having changes, but I still get the feeling like I'll be staying here in Sandino. Elder Hinojosa has already started packing and he feels like for sure he will be leaving -- we both came to Sandino at the same time. We will find out Tuesday.
So this past Saturday, we baptized the aunt of the little girl who was baptized the end of last month. We took this picture with her and her boyfriend, who needs just a little more time but still plans to follow in her footsteps next month. This young lady is super cool and loves the church and how much it has changed her life. She said she wanted to get baptized for years, but none of the churches seemed right. Even when we first started teaching her, she was reluctant to come to church for the first time, but when she did, it was incredible and a lot of the members have supported her. It was great to see her get baptized.

Thanks again to everyone for the updates and pictures. I'm still waiting for the second package from my folks that has the other shoe in it, but probably for sure on Wednesday at cambios. Nice pics of my dad and brother golfing -- I can't wait to go golfing when I get back. Take care everyone and have a great week!
