Dear Family and friends,  (edited by Cindy to remove people's names)

Things are going well for my companion and I here in Barbosa. We are still planning for the baptism on Saturday, the 26th. She seems really firm  in her decision to get baptized. She will have the interview on Friday afternoon. We are really excited for her though. She told me on Saturday that she has already decided that she wants me to baptize her. One of these months I will have to try and find some bigger pants because the white ones I have are really really tight.   My companion used them for the last baptism we had. 
Last week went really well. Not many of the members knew about my birthday so it wasn't as big as last year but a few of them found out so we had a little party. I will send you the pictures in another email. It was a fun night with them. They brought out a birthday foam thing and sprayed it all over plenty of times. There is a pic of it with my comp. The one who bought it and brought all the stuff is F.O.  We were in the house of J. O.  We are teaching him and also his girlfriend.  They need to get married so they can get baptized.  It was a fun night though and it went really well.

The other picture with the jersey is a new jersey that some investigators sent me from Barranquilla. The team is called Junior and is from Barranquilla. It was a cool gift from them. 

 This last week I was actually able to send a package home. I sent it with a return missionary called Zack.  He should be passing by one of these days. Hopefully you guys will get it soon. He is from St. George. He is a good kid and was passing through and offered to take it. I spent a bit of money on the stuff but still haven't bought anything for my birthday. Just stuff for you guys. Well love ya´ll and wish ya the best this week =) I will send ya the pics of the baptism =). Chao!
