So we had a pretty good week this week and I finally had my first baptism!! The Hernali family was so happy to be baptized finally; it was cool to see how happy they were about it.

The rest of the week we just spent most of our time preparing the Hernalis for baptism. We were setting all of the details up on Friday, the day before, and asking all of them who they want to baptize them. Amy and Nanay Hernali both wanted Elder Perkins, but for some reason Lory Anne wanted me to do it for her! I was so surprised, I thought for sure she would want Perkins (considering I can’t even speak her language all that well) but I was very grateful that she chose me. The actual baptism was super cool. We were going to do it at the beach, but the weather was supposed to be horrible, so we moved it closer to this one pool nearby. It was still really nice, and all of the Hernali's loved it.
That's really all that happened for this week! I’ll be sure to be more descriptive next week in my email, but I kind of ran out of time today (whoops). But I love you all and pray for you! I'll email again in another short week! :)
