Querido Familia y Amigos! 
This week I accomplished riding my bike with no handlebars for 39 seconds. That´s what happens when you are biking for quite a while and you get bored of the same thing and you start experimenting. And it´s actually not as hard as it looks, except when the bike starts swerving since it´s hard to direct it without the handlebars. Haha.
WE HAVE A BAPTISM THIS SATURDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am so excited!! V- and E- are getting baptized on Saturday. They are going to be my first baptisms. :) They are super awesome. They are the sister and mom of M-, a recent convert who turned 12 yesterday, and is GETTING THE PRIESTHOOD NEXT WEEK!!!!!! And so now we will have one act

ive young man in the branch! Woot! And his other sister, C-, now has a baptismal date for the 30 of May so that she has a goal to work towards. We are still trying to work on her marido to get him to like us so he´ll listen to us so they can get married and he can get baptized too! And we are going to start working on M-´s Dad so that they can all get sealed next year!!! 
My birthday was awesome. Minus the fact that everyone kept trying to pull my ears off. Haha. But I (mostly) successfully dodged them. Church was amazing and the spirit was super strong. All of the testimonies were awesome. And M- gave his testimony about how excited he is to get the Priesthood next week, and how he is preparing for it and everything. And I just got super excited and happy too! E- and V- had their baptismal interviews with our District Leader and passed! My comp made me lunch--of milanesas (basically breaded fried chicken--except better than american fried chicken) with cheese and sauce and pasta and salad and cereal since it was fast Sunday. We were trying to make it like Chicken Parmesan, and it tasted super good. And then we went to M-´s birthday party--since we have the same birthday. And his cake was SUPER good--since they put dulce de leche in the middle and it sinks into the cake and is super great. And then we went and taught N-, a converso recien from September. He is super awesome, and is doing all that he can to prepare to serve a mission and to be active and strong in the church and to receive the Melchizedek Priesthood in a coupld of weeks!! And he is our Branch Mission Leader now! His mom came to church for the first time today--which was awesome, since we´ve been working with her for a while, and she knows it´s all true, but doesn´t want to commit to anything and doesn´t want to feel pressured over anything. But, she came to church ALL BY HERSELF!!! And in the nighttime we went and talked to F-, one of our investigators who asked us to come teach her, and we taught her about baptism, and she told us that she wants to get baptized!! And by that point I had forgotten it was my birthday again until my comp told my happy birthday again at the end of the night. 
Thanks to everyone for your prayers and support! Love you all!!
