So transfers are coming up in about a week! Holy cow this
transfer has gone by so fast! I seriously cant believe it at all. Bahía
Blanca is awesome and I really want to stay. But 1 transfer areas are
common, so I guess I wont be too shocked that I'm out. But I'm about
99percent sure that I.m staying. We have a lot more baptisms to look
forward to next transfer, so there is no way that I can leave! Elder Cross could leave though. This is his 2nd transfer here. But again, 3 is
common.. So who knows! There is no way to predict transfers, even
though you want to. haha.
So this week was pretty great I guess. We had divisions and I went
with the district leader for 2 days. I'm like way sick right now with a
cold. There are times in the night where I wake up and I can't breathe.
Its scary stuff, but whatever. Also I lost my voice several times this
week. The water thing has been long gone, We bought jugs of filtered
water, so were good now. I don't even touch the tap anymore.
This weekend was pretty nuts. Sunday was our baptism and plus our
branch president asked us to give talks..nooo! I gave mine on
repentance. Holy cow..funny story about my talk haha. Besides the fact
that I was super nervous, everything that could have gone wrong, went
wrong. First of all, the microphone started making loud screeching
noises about 5 minutes into my talk, it took us a couple minutes to get
that one figured out haha. Super embarrasing. A couple minutes after that
was over, I started having a coughing and choking attack haha. It
sounds funny now, but I did it at the pulpit with everyone watching me. I
was having a hard time breathing. Every time I breathed in, I had to
cough instantly haha. There was something tickling my throat. It was
sooo embarrasing! That lasted about a minute, and then someone brought
me up a glass of water and then a little girl gave me a
cough drop....haha. Dang. Then a little bit after that, the bishopric
slipped me a paper telling me that my time was up. I guess I was up
there for like 20 minutes.
Right after church, we had the baptism. Only 4 ended up getting
baptized. One of the kids backed out at the last second and we're going
to do it the next weekend or the next. So to make a super long story
short, the kid wanted to get baptized, but his mom wouldn't let him get
baptized in the clothes we had for him. She thought they were for a
girl. It was just a jumpsuit! So yeah, dumb reason. And we checked with
everyone, and that was literally the reason. The mom said, I don't want
him getting baptized in girl clothes! haha...holy cow. Yeah, so we only
had 4 and it was still really awesome!!
Today for p-day, we went to this awesome huge shopping mall in Bahia Blanca. Its like the only one here. There was a Subway and a Mcdonalds
inside!! So we totally ate at Subway. It tasted good but it wasn't the
same. I took pictures of us there, but I left the other memory card at
home. This mall was great. I bought 2 scarves for the winter. I kind of
lost track on how much I spent... Buyers remorse. haha. Shooot! We had
an awesome time there, I want to go back! It felt like we were in the
states again. Everything was super fancy too. So coming back to ol'
ghetto Harding Green was rough haha. Well I think that's about all! I got
your pictures for the cases in the mail! I am working on those getting
sent off. The person who does them lives in Mar Del Plata, aka far away,
so I have to figure out how to get them there.
I love you guys!! Thanks for all the support!! Nathan, endure to the
end!! School is almost over haha! Oh and some of the houses are like
that, not a ton. But there are a good amount of them.
Well gotta run!
