A Little Kid Named Axel

Hi! I don't have ton of time today. The basics:

We baptized! A huge miracle that we could baptize this month. Azucena got baptized in 3 weeks! The secret was the ward support. A family in the ward found and helped her the whole way through. The branch planned the baptism. I had a couple of ideas that we put in practice that made it really, really nice. Before the baptism I put some soft instrumental hymns on, so even before the service started the Spirit was there. While she was changing we passed around a bunch of little note cards I made, and everyone wrote a little note for her. It was really nice!

We went out contacting this week, and found a little kid named Axel. He is awesome! He spent the whole day introducing us to every house in his neighborhood- we found 13 new investigators because of him! It was awesome! He wants to get baptized, but his mom won't let him. But it's still really cool that he helped us so much.

He showed us is aunt and cousin. I tried to show them a mormon message about Jesus, but it didn't work. We ended up watching one called the Prodigal son, by Elder Holland. Before it ended they were both crying so hard. Apparently that week the exact same thing had happened to them. It was crazy how perfectly it applied. We had a great lesson!

I love you!
