Claudia's Baptism

Yesterday our investigator Claudia was Baptized. She is such a sweetheart. She loves the gospel and all she wants to do is choose the right. she accepts the truth without second thought and she is super prone to feeling the spirit. she is 18. just finished high school. she said after her baptism, she felt wonderful and clean and saved ha. it was cute. Moises, our recent convert, baptized her. it was his first time. he was so excited and honored. her family is not taking the lesson right now but they came! it is my prayer that they will also accept the gospel and follow the example of claudia.
another one of our investigators came to the baptism and after we invited him to baptized and he said yes. so he will be baptized in two weeks! 
the baptism was very stressful for me so the last picture is what happened after, crashed out.

Best Birthday Ever:)

So I seriously had the best birthday. I was so spoiled. So last
Tuesday we had the opportunity to finally go to the temple. I hadn't
been in 8 months so it was amazing. We did intitiatories and a session
with our district. The revelation and spirit you can feel there is

Then on Wednesday, we were eating lunch at a less actives house and I
don't know how they knew, but they made me a cake and sang me happy

On Thursday, my birthday, my English class threw me a huge birthday
and brought a bunch of food. And the ward threw me a party that night.
The members made food and gave me presents. I felt so special! It was
an amazing day.
My family and my mom friends also sent me some packages.

On Friday we had a missionary district meeting and we also had another
party! It was my zone leaders birthday also so we had some DQ cake.

One of our investigators that has a baptism date gave me a real pearl
necklace for my birthday.. So basically everything is really great. I
love all my family and friends and members and investigators.

The only thing that could really ruin my happy mood is that my sister
is probably getting married while I'm gone so now I'm just sad.

Transfers are tomorrow but I'm not leaving my area so no change in address! but they are taking the elders out of our ward because we are loosing a lot of missionaries. so we are taking over there area and it will be a huge project! but hey, now we have 3 new investigators with baptismal dates.

Thanks for all your support and love. I hope all is well, I'm sending
tons of pics..
