Then on Saturday we had Iris' baptism in Spanish. She bore her testimony at the end, and wow she has such a powerful testimony. She was truly prepared by the Lord to accept this message, and we hope to help her go to the temple soon!
My new companion is Elder Laws! He is from Loveland, Colorado and he has been on his mission for about a year now! He is a great missionary and it has been a fun, packed week for him. We haven't had a normal day so far, and with Christmas this week it doesn't look like we'll have one anytime soon! Elder Laws is a basketball champ and he also played baseball. HE'S TALLER THAN ME! That is the first time for my whole mission, and will definitely take some getting use to. We have already had a lot of fun, and it is going to just keep on being great! Fun fact he swallowed a quarter when he was 10.
Today the Rolfes invited all of the missionaries over for lunch and to squeeze oranges! We also had a meeting with our stake president and President Schmitt today, so we invited President Schmitt too! We had a really fun time and got some great pictures!
Miguel is doing well and so are his kids! There are a lot of other people in the woodwork that we are working with, and we can't wait to help them all come unto Christ and help the Church grow here in the great Imperial Valley! I love this place!
Have fun this year! Serve others! Carol at the top of your lungs! Have a blast no matter what! It's Christmas! Make it the best day of the year! I love you all!
