Alberto's baptism

Hello Family Friends,
How are you all doing?? I am doing pretty well! This past week was a lot of work and we had a baptism this past weekend. Alberto finally got baptized!! He is this guy who lives alone that has had teaching in the past from other missionaries. He accepted the missionary visits and all, he came to church, he had a baptismal interview, and then he never showed up to his baptism. That was like 4 months ago with two other elders. Now 2 weeks ago, he had his baptismal date and he didn’t even come to his interview. So we left him... And then last week, he came to church all alone and he said that he wants to change and everything. So we put another date and he actually came to his interview, he got baptized on Saturday and he got confirmed yesterday. He came in a shirt and tie, he changed a lot!! It was super cool how that happened. So it was a cool experience for him and it was super cool to see the change in him.

At the baptism, my comp wanted to sing and so I sang a trio with him, the bishop and I. I had to sing soprano... haha singing in front of people is a little bit nerve racking. But we sang well, according to the comments from the members.
We got some cool news, Elder Jeffrey R Holland is coming to speak to our mission!! :) On May 20th!!! So should be very cool! I am super pumped! We will see what he will say to us.
This past week was just a regular week... Not too interesting but neither was it bad. It was an ordinary week.
Thanks for the Packages!!! I love them! Elder Berríos and I are getting fat with chocolate. Haha.
Well to make this email better, I will send a bunch of pictures ok?
I love you all very much and take care!
Elder Justin Powell
