|Elder Welling and his companion at the Cathedral La Lajas in Ipiales on Elder Welling's Birthday.|
WHat a week filled with more miracles. Start on Monday. We went out after writing and had a good night. Visitied some people and that was cool. Then on Tuesday Martin and Carmen got married. That was awesome. They got married, and then baptized on Saturday. All of their family have been baptized now. Expect one son. We will see what happens with that. SO that was super special. Then later in the week we had an amazing lesson with a girl named Yadira. She has two kids and she and her daughter got baptized. The lesson with her was awesome and really spiritual. SHe decided to get baptized and even when entering the water she was super scared...not sure if it was because she was going to be a member, or if it was because the water was freezing...haha. SO that was cool. Also, her mom got baptized and her child. Was really an awesome night. Overall my companion and I finished with 5 baptisms that night. Was a really special night and the zone overall this month did great. With a total of 34 baptisms. I don't think that has happened here in a long time.....haha 5.7 overall.
It was special and amazing filled with lessons. ALso, today President and the Hermana Prince called me and sang Happy Birthday to me. That was super cool. Also, Elder David A. Bednar is coming to the mission in April 28...WHATTTTT SOOO SICK!! Thanks Grandma for telling Pres. Uchtdorf to send an apostle to us, haha. That is awesome he is coming, and I am so excited and nervous for it, haha. Ipiales finished as the best zone this month again. Hopefully we can keep it up and do well in April. But yeah, that is about it for me, family and friends. I will send the picture. Hope you are all doing well and know that I love and miss you all. Oh, BTW I set the goal about 5 minutes ago that I am going to learn German, Itialian, Portugese, and Francese. A total of 6 languages...I'll do it, haha! It's because we just talked to a guy from Germany who is traveling the country, haha!! Love you all. -- Elder Tyler Welling Ps. The fotos. La Lajas y tambien ellos son las personas que se bautizaron.
