We baptized the chapel

Ok, so this week the other elders had a baptism on Saturday, so my companion and I and the two elders with the baptism went in the morning to start filling up the font. There was a little confusion and misunderstanding I guess about someone else turning the water off before the baptism. Long story short we showed up to the baptism and there was all this water outside the building and we were all like oops. the whole building had like an inch of water.hahahahahaha. Oh my gosh. So with four elders and some brooms and mops we spent like an hour getting all the water out. Fortunately the whole building was tile, so there was like zero water damage and it looks a lot cleaner now  In the bishops office some of the carpet was wet, but we joked with the members about it being a baptism for the chapel. hahahahah never going to forget that experience. The baptism continued and the church is good and all is well in Zion.

I had one of the best experiences on my mission yesterday. Elder Morgan and I the last couple weeks struggled getting investigators to church. It is always sad when you show up and nobody is there. Yesterday Elder Rodriguez and I got up at 6 30 and in our pajamas went outside and knocked on all of our investigators doors to make sure they were coming to church and then when church started we had 8 investigators there, and 2 with a baptismal date. I was so happy to see so many people there. I was so grateful for a loving Heavenly Father that blessed us to have his children feel the spirit at church

I really have faith that Elder Rodriguez and I are going to continue to see miracles this change. I hope all of you are doing well. I am doing better. My leg is a little sore sometimes, and sometimes it is just straight up hard to be a missionary. My spanish is coming along fine. I am now only studying the scriptures and preach my gospel in Spanish. I love spanish. I hope I have the chance to speak with those of you who know it well after the mission. ON a side note, I found American candy today, I bought skittles and oreos, holy cow it was amazing. I love you all, have a good week!

Chao, Elder Roberts
