Last Wedding, Last Baptism!

Hola Familia!
Wow I have so much to tell you this week I dont even know where to start. First of all, this week we had zone conference with President and it was so inspirational. It was my last zone conference and I was a little bit bummed but really, every training was so inspired and I could really feel the spirit testify that everything that I was learning was true. President talked about how the Lord puts every missionary in a specific mission for a reason. That mission will give that missionary the chance to develop certain attributes and strengths and will allow them to rise to their fullest potential as a person later on in life. That really impacted me. I dont know why the amazon jungle with the hand picked mission of the Lord for me but I do know that I have learned and changed a lot. I will never forget my time here or the things that I have learned. 
Saturday was the wedding and baptism. Yay! We have worked so hard for this day and really, everything was perfect! We went to the chapel Saturday morning to decorate everything and get everything ready and then at 5 that afternoon the wedding started. The woman`s name is Dagnith and she is 18-years-old and 6 months pregnant. She is so sweet and has sincere desires to change her life. She looked absolutely beautiful and was so excited! Her husband is named Elar and he is actually a returned missionay. He kind of lost his way in life a little bit but is now trying to put his life back on the gospel tracks. This wedding was the first step. They were so happy and the whole ward showed up to support us. Afterward, we had the baptismal service and that was so beautiful as well. She was so happy and her husband was beaming as he watched her go under the water. The spirit that was there the whole night was amazing and we could really feel that God was happy for what was going on. This family now has the gospel in their life and will have it forever if they want it. I am so grateful that Heavenly Father gave me a chance to help this family. We really have worked so hard so that everything was perfect. I love you all so much! I hope you have a great week!
