I had a good week this week, even though our baptism fell though. He just didn't show up... but we´re going to get everything organized for this week I think. And the sister that we were/are going to baptize this week has disappeared.. hoping we can get that worked out too...
Outside of that, my companion and I are getting along better. I got really mad at him on Tuesday and since then we've had to work things out a little bit, and also it helps that the President said that he needed to repent or he'd get kicked out of the offices. So now we´re good. We've put a goal to baptize every week of the next change, and our plan is talk to EVERY SINGLE PERSON WE PASS IN THE STREET all day while we´re going from place to place. It feels kind of like the best two years, but it´s a lot more productive than just walking for 15 minutes without getting anything done between your appointments.
There´s a worldwide missionary conference on the 20th, so that will probably be super amazing!!
Anyway, today we played touch football and I remembered how terrible I am in all of the sports ever... good thing I got into a decent school haha!
The baptism pictures from last week are here from the mission announcements.
[Note: items in blue brackets have been added for clarification] I sent the email! [advising school he plans to enroll this fall semester following his deferment] I don't want to get kicked out of Princeton!!!!
This week was pretty fun! I'm still lame and don´t have my pictures with me, but look in the attachment!! [which he forgot to attach] Anybody familiar?? That's the son of the family we baptized a while ago, and a cool psychologist! This week went pretty well, and President is all over my companion's case for being kind of poopy, so now he´s getting excited about working harder and doing important things like READING THE BOOK OF MORMON.
Thank you guys so much for looking out for me and keeping me in the loop. We have a lot of people who are excited about the gospel, who are making their own choices and making efforts to change their lives. We also have been teaching many people who aren´t ready to make those decisions. :(.
Also, I spent 1000 pesos on three pairs of pants, because I didn't have any pants... well I had 2 pair. But that's not that bad I don't think! Thats like 60 dollars for my pants! But it does mean I will probably be taking 60 dollars out of my account because my reserve has been dying from taking taxis to save time in my area... I'll be a little bit more ahorrative [thrifty] in the future. But thanks for the pants!!!
Glad to know you guys are out there learning more things! I'm working on that too.
Just here chillin! I don´t really know what happened to my camera, so, we´re investigating that one.
We've been working hard, only a few missionaries went crazy for new years, and I´m excited to be able to start the new year here in the mission. Hoping that you passed the new year well!
We've got a lot of people on hold because they've been out of town visiting family, or in town being really busy. Yesterday everyone was asleep all morning and everyone went back to sleep at 6 or 7, but we did manage to find a handful of people.
I hope you guys are doing well and are excited to start off 2016!!! Love you all!!
