It was so good to talk to all of you. I LOVED it! You all look so great and, more than anything, I just loved hearing your voices again. Mom, I hope you had an awesome Mother´s Day back at home, as well as Grandma, Kris, Monica, etc. It was great to talk to all of them, as well as Gramps, Ken, and Kory!!! What studs. I thought it was particularly cool that Itzel (daughter of Hna. Carmen) wanted so badly to see Grandpa - she's never seen a patriarch before, and she asked me if I could talk to him again just so she could see what he looks like. Super awesome. I got the final count if you wanna tell Grandpa - there are 7 patriarchs in the country.
Anyway, now for the good stuff. I had a really great week this week. Most importantly, we had...... two baptisms!!! Yes!!!! Elísa y Melany were baptized Saturday evening and confirmed Sunday morning :) So awesome. They came to us and wanted to paid tithing again!! They were so anxious :) Maybe a bit overly-anxious - we might go teach the law of tithing again. Haha. It just shows you how committed they are, though. They are fantastic young ladies, really. I want to see them both get married and sealed here in the Panamá temple in the coming years. Eternal families are the keystone to our religion, and in turn, will help the church grow even bigger and stronger here :)

be able to help keep them active once the missionaries are gone.

Ok well, unfortunately that´s about all the time I have left for today cuz I wrote Dad back today - he sent me an awesome experience about his mission. I talked to you guys a few days ago though so I think we're good :)
Have a great week!
