On Friday WE BAPTIZED!!! Hazzel got baptized so that was super cool and it was a really good baptismal service. She'll have a lot of support from her mother-in-law who is a member. Then after the baptism we went to the house and got ready to go to the temple in Hermosillo with the district. We were back at the chapel at 12 o clock at night to leave. We got to go because Dulce and Javier were going to do baptisms for the dead for the first time. The branch leaves at 12 o clock to get there at 7 in the morning. They rent a bus to go. When we got there all of the seats were full!!! So we were about to go home, but a member asked us if we'd like to head with them in a car and of course we said yes. So we spent 7 hours squished in the back of a car to go to the temple! I can now say that I know what it means to sacrifice to go to the temple. All of you people that have the temple SUPER close to your house, if you don't go at least once a week, REPENT. There are no excuse not to go. So we got there at 7 and I was able to do a session for the first time in 15 months. It was very spiritual because I was able to give thanks in the celestial room to God for how amazing my mission has been and then recommit myself to continue going hard. Also, Dulce and Javier loved doing the baptisms. On the way home (7 hours!) we got the news that I would be going to Hermosillo to train another new missionary, and that I would be leaving on Sunday at 1. So we got home from the temple on Saturday at 8:30 pm, I packed all night, we went to church Sunday morning and I took all my stuff to church, and right after church I left for Hermosillo. Saying goodbye to everyone was hard but it wasn't too bad because I know I'll see them again soon. I love this branch!!
Monday morning all the new missionaries arrived and I was able to see Elder Wakely!!! It was so great to see him!!!!!!!! I almost was able to train him too!!! But he's going to my area in Penasco with Elder Rosales!!! My old area and my last companion. He's going to have an amazing time!!! My comp arrived at 4 because he was in the Provo MTC. His name is Elder Rodriguez and he's from Layton Utah. But his parents are from Venezuela!!! So he already speaks a little bit of spanish. He'll learn quick. So ya, I've never been in Hermosillo on my mission and it's HUGE and neither of us know the area or the members or anyone for that matter so it will be fun. We've already gotten lost a few times but it makes for good memories. I can already tell that these are going to be two amazing transfers. We got to the house on Monday night and I pulled my ukulele and Elder Rodriguez started busting out some songs. Turns out he plays too!!! He's going to have his parents send him his uke and we're going to rock Hermosillo with our uke duet. But really I'm just so grateful for how AMAZING my mission has been so far. I couldn't ask for anything more. I'm ready to work super hard these next few months and give my all. I love you!!!
