What a week...

What an exciting week! Jesse got baptized on Saturday. Here we all are, a bit before the baptism. Me and Sister Silva, Jesse, and the Bishop. We're so happy for him, that he decided to take this step!

Afterward, the entire stake celebrated with a huge picnic. Okay, so maybe the picnic was for Pioneer day, but we like to think it was a "Welcome to the Church" party for Jesse. Only in El Paso, would a church function serve hot dogs and horchata - a delicious combination!

We made it through transfers unscathed; Sister Silva and I get to stay another six weeks here in the wonderful town of Horizon!

I learned a new phrase in Spanish the other day, "No te des por vencido!" It means "Don't give up," but somehow sounds much more eloquent in Spanish. 

Have a wonderful week!
