The Baptism went pretty good. Everything ended up falling… the talks, the musical number, the prayers, etc. but it was still just an amazing experience! I really can’t explain enough how everything went wrong but to see an inactive family return to church and cry as they hear the testimony of their son was absolutely amazing, I really can't describe it! The confirmation was a bit different though, Marcelo slept in and so he ended up coming in the door about 15 minutes late. Luckily he made it in time for the sacrament and they were able to "squeeze in" his confirmation before the primary program... a bit of a close call but it all went well and the bishop gave an awesome blessing. I also got a letter from Grandma Layton. I couldn't read most of it but it was very thoughtful and sweet and you could absolutely tell that it was her writing it.
