Richard's Baptism

Lots of Noticias this 11th de Abril:

Richard: Got baptized
Hermana Ponce: Turned 29
Hermana Shupe: Turned 20
Saturday Richard got baptized! He showed up nice and early with some sweet looking white crocs :) It was a beautiful service with so much friendship and love from the members. After he was baptized Richard put his head down but threw his hands up like a winner :) So happy he was! He has so many great relationships and supports in the church now. While he was changing after the baptism we asked all the members to write a testimony or card to him and we then gave him a nice box with them all in there together for a memory. 
But Richard is gone. He moved on Monday...he found out on Saturday night after his baptism and had to move for work on Monday. It was a huge surprise on Sunday to ask him when we could visit him in the week and to hear a reply like that. I knew at one point I would have to leave but never thought he would be the one to leave us :( But he will be in good hands - the Bishop has been helping him with details for his new Ward. He will not even be in our mission limits anymore. I just pray he has a good friend waiting for him there.

So my comps had birthdays this same Saturday and my hippo face photo just shows a little of how we tried to make it a special morning for them. LOTS of balloons, brownies, Doritos...

I do not know what kind of trio only celebrates 2 out of the 3 birthdays.... no broma :) we had a wonderful Saturday :)
