May 28, 2012 letter

Dear Family,
This week went by well.  We didn`t have the 6 baptisms because nobody got their blood tests, but we did have a baptism.  It's the uncle of Marcos that I baptized in Kanasin.  His wife and kids are all members and his daughter is on her mission.  He had been taught by the missionaries before, but he never showed up for his baptismal interview.  He is only here about 1 or 2 days every 3 weeks.  We taught him 3 weeks ago and put a date for the 26th, thinking that he would be coming by on weekends, but he never showed up.  Yesterday after church his daughter came up to us to tell us that he was home.  I talked to the branch president and he went with us to go see him.  We invited him to be baptized that day.  He was planning on leaving again at 6:00 p.m., but he said he could wait.  We made some calls to plan the baptism, and we tried to find some white pants, but nobody had the right size.  The only member in the district with some pants was traveling and couldn`t get back until 9:30.  We borrowed a belt and gave him some pants a size too small.  It worked out.   Hopefully this week the other 6 baptisms should happen. 

The rain here stopped.  It was only a storm that was passing through.  The rain should start again in June. Last Monday we went to a store that sells Maya art.  They have some pretty cool structures outside so we took some pictures and looked around.  I sent some pictures of that.  My group is going home at the scheduled time on Nov. 26th.  They only end early if it's Christmas.  We are all done with the temple, interviews, and dinner on the 29th.  I`ll let you know in the next week or 2 when to meet up with me. 
Elder Gubler
