Who Needs Warm Water Anyway . . .

Small puppy :)
Update on my sister: Not much to update about, still in the hospital in ICU connected to her ECMO machine. They are waiting on insurance to be approved so she can be moved to Penn, in case she needs a transplant. They are hoping to move her to a different machine called an RVAD that would let her move around and sit up. 

Sooooooo Mariana's baptism was this Saturday! It was amazing! It went so smoothly and Mariana was/is so happy!

Did I mention that Mariana is scared of water?

The only small problem was that Oradea, the whole city, starting Thursday didn't have hot water (and still doesn't). It has been fun taking showers...not haha but that meant that the water that she got baptized in was ice cold. We found out that there wouldn't be hot water on Wednesday. When we told her, she said, "I don't care! I am going to get baptized, even if that means in ice cold water." So awesome! As soon as she got out of the font I asked her if she was cold. She said "No, I feel so warm and happy. I didn't even feel that the water was cold at all." She could not stop smiling! 

Sora DJB was able to come and she gave the talk on the Holy Ghost. Mariana's family and friends were able to come as well, and it was cool to see Mariana stand up in front of her friends and family and say that she knows this church is true. She is such an amazing example.

Other than Mariana's baptism, we celebrated Sora Gubar's one year mark this week! We got some ice cream that she loves. We also had to work on some Visa stuff for her because her visa is going to expire next month. Hopefully everything gets done on time.

Country side with Densia
We also taught our friend Densia about the restoration this week and it went so well! The spirit was so strong as we talked and Densia even pointed out that she felt goosebumps. She had a lot of questions because of stuff that she had read online about Mormons, but it's good that she is asking us about what she read, so we can tell her what's true and what's not. She said that she would read and pray about the Book of Mormon :) We went to her house last Sunday and visited her family (sorry I think I forgot to write about that but I have some pictures of that). 

Anyway, I think that's everything. I love you guys! Have a great week! 
Love Sora Vann
