Give me a Kiss Like This!

Sebastio  got baptized!

Well, Oh boy do i have a story for you!! Get ready! So we had a baptism this past week. You know Sebastião who says Amen Jesus? Well he got baptized. It was wonderful! I am so happy about it. But oh my gosh it was probably the craziest baptism ever. First during sacrament he answers his phone. During the sacrament prayer we heard this loud disruptive ringtone and we all turned to see who it was and it was Sebastiao. He looks down at his phone and then answers it! i was on the other side of the chapel and couldn’t do anything about it. Oh how embarassing. After he finished the phone call the sacrament meeting was normal again. Here is where it gets good. We go take pictures outside of the building before the baptism and after the pictures Sebastiao just got super excited and grabbed my face and gave me a big long juicy kiss on the cheek. I tried to stop him but he has a really strong arm.. Then we all went into the building to the baptismal font. We sat down and heard a few short little talks and we went into the baptismal font where Elder Harris would baptize him. Before he said the prayer he kinda went over what would happen and then he asked Sebastiao if he was ready. He said yes and we all closed our eyes for the prayer. Elder Harris said the baptismal prayer and we all opened our eyes in time to see Sebastiao cross himself and kiss his hand and point to the heavens. Oh my gosh. Of all the things could have done. Crossing himself. Elder Harris dunked him and when he came out of the water he said "phew i was dying of heat, it felt good to take a bath!" oh dear. What do you do? Laugh and laugh. Craziest baptism ever. 
Well the last week was the conference of Christmas in Natal. We had a great time. Learned a lot and I met all of the missionaries in Natal. We got a picture with all of the sister Bakers. They are the sweetest things. Love them. 
We have 7 investigators with the name of Fransisca and one Fransisco. Mixen things up over here in Currais Novos. 
I Said a prayer in English this week and lemme tell ya, that was one of the hardest things of my life. I literally couldn’t do it. I said portuguese words like 4 or 5 times. It was so rough. 
There is this thing that is my new favorite thing. I don’t know the name of it in English but it called a feira in portuguese. Its a fruit market i guess. It’s a lot like swiss days except for that everyone is yelling and its super ghetto and the booths are falling apart and are made of wood and they sell fruit. Its awesome though. If you go to the right places at the right time you can get tons of fruit for super cheap. I went again today and got a watermelon, 4 giant mangos, a thing of bananas, tapioca powder, 10 apples, pineapple, all for 10 reis. which is roughly 5 dollars. its a wonderful thing. 
Well i’m dreaming of a white christmas. White with baptism of course!! We have 2 investigators with a baptism date on christmas. I hope they don’t fall through! 
Our mission is the 2nd highest baptizing mission in the world! last month we baptized 245 people. ONE MONTH! thats crazy!!
Well thats all for now! i love you all!!
Love, Sister Baker
