Ok, so this week was still so crazy, and flew by, and side note, Bruno Mars is on the station here at the internet cafe, and granade is playing and I’m just thinking of Shane. Hahaha. ANYWAYS...
PAULO GOT BAPTIZED!!!!! He has 16 years, and his mom has started coming back to church. But he is probably the most on top of it 16 year old kid that I have ever met. He is so great. And he has really helped out the youth group here with his example. He has really found his place and just shines. He will be a really great missionary. He got a new suit and everything. His dad who isn’t a member, and didn’t want him to get baptized....WENT to the baptism!!!! And it was so great. I love this family so much and can’t wait to keep working with them! David and Leydi are also jovenes that we are working with. Paulo has helped David out a lot too! So’ he is planning on getting baptized the 15th. All good things in our area! It’s been really exciting.
So funny story...Trying to figure out the baptismal font was a real heck of a time. Only one person in the ward knew how to do it, but just moved far away...um what? Why no one else knows I know not. So we spent a lot of time working with a broken font. Because we couldn’t empty it, because there was something wrong with the sewage system. it was about 1/4 still filled up. And then an answer to prayers, an FM guy randomly showed up at the capilla. But, he didn’t know how to do it...so he called another FM guy who said he was going to come and help the next day...but didn’t...FM...hmmm....haha, jokes.... ;) So, what happened was that the morning of the baptism me and my companion emptied the font with buckets and cleaned out the dead roaches. Yup. I guess getting in the knee deep water was the closest I will ever get to swimming on the mission. haha. I hope that we don’t grow some kind of fungi from the water...hahaha. But it all ended really good, so that is awesome! Super fun.
I love you all so much! THINK OF ME EVERYTIME YOU SWIM!!!!!! :)
