11 Months in and I'm out of Subject Lines....

...But it was a good week! Maira is progressing a ton and got baptized and confirmed this week! She is so tierna [sweet & tender]. She thought she had overslept and missed her confirmation on Sunday when she woke up and was so sad she started crying. But don't worry, she hadn't actually overslept! About 40 members went to her baptism and they are super welcoming and supportive! Diego, a guy in the branch who just got his mission call to Chile, got to baptize her. Hermana Ostler, Hermana Christensen, Hermana Quiceno and I sang ¨Cuando Me Bautice¨ in her baptism, and the members brought food and Maira's family came so it was a good time overall!

[English words to "When I Am Baptized":
  1.  I like to look for rainbows whenever there is rain
    And ponder on the beauty of an earth made clean again.
    I want my life to be as clean as earth right after rain.
    I want to be the best I can and live with God again.
  2.  I know when I am baptized my wrongs are washed away,
    And I can be forgiven and improve myself each day.
    I want my life to be as clean as earth right after rain.
    I want to be the best I can and live with God again.]
    Maira's Baptism day! (with Hna Ostler and Hna Hooke)
    Baptism of Maira with Diego who baptized her
 Also this week we got to do divisiones with our lĂ­deres capacitadoras [training leaders] and I got to spend the day with good ole Hermana Jones (I lived with her for 3 transfers [about 4 1/2 months] in Jujuy.) At one point we were looking for a referral out in the middle of nowhere in the campo [country] and we taught a lesson to a really old couple and their chickens and horses and dogs and it struck me, If this is not the gospel being preached "to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people", I don't know what is [Revelation 14:6]. So that's pretty cool that every missionary is contributing to the fulfillment of that prophecy!
Today to enjoy P-Day we had a picnic in a little plaza, complete with Mennonite cupcakes (they have a baked goods store in centro [downtown] and they have the best things I have ever tasted) and ukulele and painting. We made a painting to hang in our pension that is pretty "swag" in the words of Hermana Christensen. Haha. It was a fun day and finally a little bit relaxing!

 Hermana Christensen and Hermana Quiceno painting today on P-day
My shoes that used to be mint colored, then Hermana Quiceno wore them on the hike and they were brown, then she bleached them and they were white, so I figured I would paint an Argentine flag on them. Pretty sweet, huh?
This week we are going to look for new investigators like craazzy and see lots of miracles! And that's about it! Sounds like you guys are having lots of fun, hope you all have a great week! 
Love you all!
Con amor,
Hermana Hooke
