So this week was pretty great. One of our best weeks of
this super transfer. We found a lot of new investigators! And a couple
families too! One of the families we found (the Luna Family), is this
part member family that we received as a reference from Hanna, our
recent convert. There are 2 daughters in this family that were baptized
about 4 years ago. They are super inactive now! One of them has a baby
(and shes 14 or 15 - by the way, having a kid at this age is pretty
common, sad stuff). The mom of the family almost got baptized with them,
but she was afraid of going under the water, thats all. So if we can
get her over that, I think it will be pretty easy to get them committed to
baptism. She also has 2 kids that are above the age of 8 too, so yep!
Yesterday while tracting in the middle of nowhere, we found this super
humble family. They are 6 in total and live in this tiny tiny concrete
house. The dad recently lost his job and they only have bread and mate
to eat/drink. I feel really bad for them, they are in a tight spot. They
were pretty open to what we had to say and accepted the challenge to
read the BOM and everything. While walking away from that lesson, I was
pretty humbled. I see all the things that I have, and then I look at
them. Gahh spoiled...! haha. But really though, it was a good
We are preparing a baptism this Saturday!!! YEAHHHH!!!
BAPTISM!! Its an 86 year old man named Demetrio. He is practically deaf
and cant really see worth anything. So for our lessons, we have to write
it all down in big front. Its been a fun time teaching him. He´s a
super funny guy too haha. He lives alone with 18 chickens. He tells us every time we go over there that he hates his chickens haha and that he´s
tired of eating them. hahaha. It´s probably not as funny if you don't
know him or the way he talks, but still. He has been to church 4 times
already. He told us that he´s going to buy a brand new car so he can
show up to his baptism in style. I doubt its going to happen. haha. But
yeah, im super excited for it!
This week a bird pooped on E. Henry´s
head. It was the funniest thing ever. We were waiting at a door of a
less active member, and the bird just pooped on him. I didn't really want
to tell him what happened, but I had to. He was really mad at that
bird! When we got inside the members house, he went to the bathroom to
wash his hair.
This past Tuesday I had exchanges with my district
leader, Elder Galan. He´s from Nicarauga and is about to go home in 2
weeks. TRUNKY! Anyways, that was kinda hard speaking spanish all day. It
was a lot easier this time though than the first time on exchanges with
Hmm... thats too bad that dad got in a car accident. What the
crap. We have to J walk everywhere here...haha. Crosswalks don't exist.
It happened in the white car though? So 'Im pretty much never going to
see my car again in working form, huh? haha crap. Did Nathan ever get
his license? Hopefully dad heals/recovers quickly! It´s no fun being in
Hmmm....mission call guesses... For Terry´s son, Sao Paulo, Brazil
Mission. For Bennny Blackner, the Manchester Area New York Mission.
BAM. Let´s hopè the streak continues! Also Daylight savings time doesn't
exist in Argentina. I was told that its only a thing in the USA? I'm not
sure if thats right. But oh well. We have another Elder going home in 2
weeks in our house. Elder Howard from some town in Utah. The air is
going to be getting trunky again. It´s hard being around people ¨dying¨.
But what can you do? Well I think I covered the majority of this week. I'm sure I forgot some key things like always...ooops.
I love all of you
guys! Have an awesome weeek!!
