¡Ay Chihuahuas!

Well my dears, I realize that my letter last week may have been vague and perhaps a little troublesome.  But don't you worry.  I am just fine here in Mexico. Although I have days where I wake up thinking, "What the crud am I doing here??" Those moments pass and I am happy to be serving the Lord.  This week I had my first real baptism.  I feel like this baptism was my first because I actually helped a lot in her conversion.  She is so great and she only needed 3 weeks to prepare.  She was one of those people that was definitely ready to hear the Gospel.  Her name is Mairel and she is 21 years old.  She was baptized yesterday and it was honestly one of the best moments of my life because I just love her.  And to see someone you care about make this covenant with the Lord is one of the most increible things!!  I was so happy for her!  

Aside from the baptism, this week was a little rough, we had to quit on most of our investigators, which was sad but it is okay because we are starting fresh!  We have been trying to find and teach more people but it is tough!  I guess people just don't want their salvation or something!!  Geez!  

We were walking down the street and there were some JW with their little stand about the end of the world and I was scared that we were going to have a little missionary show down. But then a weird thought popped into my mind, Napoleon Dynamite.  When Uncle Rico says that all they need to be legit is a name tag.  He was so right.  The name tag is what sets us apart.  We are legit, missionary work is so cool!  At times I totally forget that I am a missionary because it is weird!  But its all good.  Mish life is just life times a thousand. Life is good and I hope that everything is going well for you!

Love you all! Hermana Chandler
