Alright, Well I don't have a whole bunch to say today. Nothing amazingly special happened outside of the baptism for Maria Jose on Saturday night. I was super happy to finally see her be baptized and to see her, after all of the teaching that we have offered her, make the correct steps to follow in the example of our Savior Jesus Christ. Elder Smith baptized her and the entire program went well. Stressed out as could be trying to plan it, I was happy with the outcome. Her entire family showed up, minus her father who is in the Mexican Navy. After the baptism, her best friend, that is a member, Hermana Diana, went up to hug her. Almost immediately, Maria Jose started to cry. So hard. Eventually they both were crying. It was such a touching moment for me to see that the work that we all had put in, Elder Smith and I, Maria Jose and the ward. It was pretty great. By far, one of the best baptisms that I have had. One of the most powerful.
