It's going to be a WHITE Christmas!

Hello everyone! 
I love being a missionary at Christmastime! It is the BEST! Here in Bolivia there isn't snow but we hope that this Christmas will be white with BAPTISMS! 

That being said, we had a baptism this week!!!! Hermano Saturnino Fernandez was baptized. His grand-daughter is a member and gave us his name as a reference. We went to visit him and he was a SUPER prepared investigator. He luckily understands Spanish (he understands Quechua better though). He has throat cancer but he really wanted to be baptized. On Saturday, after a few problems (there wasn't water in the chapel or propane to heat the water) we had a beautiful baptism! Saturnino invited his whole family! Many of them aren't members. After his baptism we asked Hno Saturnino how he felt and he replied "I just feel so happy!" I am so happy to be sharing the gospel here in Bolivia! I know that this gospel gives us so much happiness and joy! Share the gospel this Christmas! I love you all!
