Well this week has been great! It has flown by so fast I don't know where the time is going!
In 2 days I will be at my 9 month (1/2 way) mark in the mission, Can you believe that??! I want to slow the clock way down:)
Here is a recap of my week.............
Last Thursday was a great day. It started off really interesting. We took awhile doing companion planning for this next week, and then afterwards we headed to the church to clean it for a baptism that night for a little boy in the ward that just turned 8yrs old. Well, as we were filling up the baptismal font the water was going really slow so we went outside to a faucet to try to get more water. Well after 2 mins of that, all of the water went out, just simply STOPPED!We had to call for help and were a little nervous that there might not be a baptism that night. We were scheduled to have a cita, so we had to leave for a while. The members figured something out and while we were at our citas they filled up the font. The baptism was really good and the spirit was so strong. The little boy being baptized had a lot of support from family and members. It was awesome!
Friday we just had a lot of citas and a meeting in the night. After our meeting we got invited to one of our investigators houses to eat tacos, man were they good!
Saturday we did a lot of service! we went over to a families house to help with a birthday party after all of our citas fell through and then we went to a cita at 5pm.
At that cita we received 5 referencias it was so cool! I seriously have learned it is more important to receive references than to contact.
After that cita we went to another 8yr olds baptism and man it was a little interesting... it was not organized and there were so many little kids that were just fed a lot of sugar not long before the baptism from the birthday party. Kids were running everywhere and the adults didn't seem to mind.
Sunday church was awesome. Saundra one of our investigators picked a baptism date for the 8 de Febrero! She has been working with the missionaries for awhie now. After our cita with her we went to our neighbors house and celebrated her birthday with popcorn and homemade juice! :)
Monday we had an awesome cita with another investigator and we were talking about the priesthood because she was not understanding it. We had a really good discussion about it. We invited her to be baptized and she said YES!!
Tuesday we walked around a lot... and was also a fiesta here! Lots of partying in the streets. Not sure what the occasion was, cuz I'm learning there really doesn't need one in order to have a reason to party!
We had a Noche de Hogar with Saundra, our investigator and other missionaries. It was a lot of fun! I think she really enjoyed it.
I hope you are all doing great! I love being a missionary!!
I love you and miss you all!
