Most importantly, we had the baptism for Walter! Even though practically all our other plans on Saturday fell through, we had a baptism! We also combined the service with the other elders in our district who are in the other ward that uses our same building. Even though it started a little late, the service went really well. (For some reason there is nothing you can do to make a baptism service start on time). Then on Sunday I was able to confirm Walter as a member of the church, and confer the gift of the Holy Ghost. I actually had never done that before. It was a really an incredible experience.
Our landlady keeps an oven stored in our apartment, and for some reason, the elders that had lived there before said it didn´t work. But I wanted to investigate that, haha. It turned out that the cable just didn´t reach the outlet in the wall, so we propped up the oven with some blocks. It works perfectly fine. In fact we used it to make a cake for an elder´s birthday last week! haha. So that has been a fun toy to have.
Well, that´s all I have for right now. Hopefully I will be able to send some pictures with this crappy internet! haha
