Baptism, New Year's and Fireworks.....

Hello Family

Hope things are going well that side and everyone is enjoying their time and the holidays that side it is too bad that I missed them though!!!  This week was pretty awesome and we are enjoying for sure with the work this side!!!  We are happy because we had a baptism last week and we are doing well!!!  I was the one who baptized the candidate and he is 11 years old and is very intelligent with what he says and does!!!  His name is Carlos will be very powerful as he continues to grow!!!!  The week was also fun because of the New Year parties and things that went on i enjoyed them a lot!!!  We are trying to keep up with the things of the Zone leaders as well as be able to continue to do the missionary work and things like that!!!  Church is doing great and the group we are at will be made a branch very soon which is awesome!!!!

Oh and on another note we all about died at the party haha it was fun!!!  Anyway we went to the party to cook meats and watch the firewroks for the new year it was cool!!!  We had a great time and we all had a lot of laughs but anyway we all went outside and if you have ever seen those war movies where there comes a rocket propelled grenade at the men and they all scatter and hit the dirt!!!  Well kind of like that twice it happened!!!  Anyway the big fireworks that go way up and make big boom and are big in the sky!!!  Well one tipped over from the neighbor and came right for me and another elder as well as the rest of them I saw it coming and we tried to get out of the way we were diving and running and it hit the gate behind us and blew up some of the blast hit me and another elder but we are all good!!!
hahaha it was a fun night!!!

There are a lot of elders going home i the next few months and it is pretty cool the only part that is bad is I get all their travel plans and things haha so it is kind of weird seeing all the friends leaving and things like that!!!!  I put elder hinkley on a plane today so we will see what happens and the things he will be doing when he gets home!!!  He is a great friend but I doubt anyone will go from the states since he is a Canadian man!!  Other than this it sounds like you guys are all having a fun time and thing keep it up!!!  Have a great week to everyone and a great Monday Love you all!!!

Elder Welling
