Hows it going? I dont really have a lot of time today, but I'll just
give you as quick update of whats going on. The area is still awesome,
and the families are so nice! We really get hooked up food-wise every
This Sunday, I have my first baptism with this 9 year old kid named
josh. It's going to be sweet! So one of our main focus's has been on
this family (josh's family). We try to get in contact with them a lot to
help them stay solid. So last Friday, the dad got sick and had to go to
the hospital. We showed up the next day with cinnamon rolls and some
ice cream. To make them feel better + make that contact right before Sunday so they would come to church. This family needed to come to
church this Sunday or their son would lose the baptismal date ( because
you have to come 3 times to church). Last week the whole family got food
poisoning from some hot dogs. So the bap. date got pushed back one
week. So this Sunday, they came to church yay! But about 50 min. into
sacrament meeting the little daughter threw up all over herself..yuck.
And guess what made her sick?? Yup. Our cinnamon rolls that we gave the
family the day prior.. awesome haha. It sucked. But it was super funny
at the same time. Like we made her sick. the family left right after
that happened. Stupid Satan, trying to do everything he can to stop a
baptism..! But it still counted as coming to church so its okay!! :)
Baptism is still on!
Its been super hot here in Colorado... like 90's
every day. It sucks. But yeah, about the white shirts... I did stick
them in the dryer..ooops. But I'm not going to give up yet! I'm just
going to keep on trying everything that I can! I'm excited for this
package coming! Yay! A Mariners game again? Fun! I never got to go to
Our ward mission leader was telling us about the terrorist
attack that happened at the batman dark knight rises premiere in
Colorado. He said its all over national news. Its so crazy.. It just
makes me sick. And it's kind of near us too! So thats crazy! As
missionaries, we are legit disconnected from the world. It kinda sucks.
but oh well, its not what we're out here to do.
Well I miss you guys!
Still no word on my VISA at all. I've calculated a date, October 25th is
when ill get my visa, according to the time frame that Elder Higley got
his. So that sucks.. I love Colorado, but I want to speak spanish!
There is this family in the ward that is from Argentina. She cooked us
food from Argentina. So that was sweet. There is also a less active lady
that served a mission in Bahia Blanca! The only reason we got in her
house is because she wanted to talk to me about Bahia Blanca! We went
through her photos! It kinda gave me a taste, but those pictures were
like 20 years old. I'm sure some things have changed! Anyways! gotta go!
Love you!!! :)
