Alright! Sit down and listen up! It's Email time!!!
Great week full of awesomeness!!! I would like to start off with a little spiritual thought that happened to me this week. So, I know God is there without a doubt. But I just felt like he wasn't showing much love for me and I couldn't figure out why. Then, we had a zone activity the other day and I was thinking about how much I love these guys and how lucky I am to be in this zone. Then it hit me. Most of them speak only Spanish... but we still have a great relationship and can totally understand each other. I then realized, that was God who gave me the ability to communicate with these amazing people!!! So if you ever want to see our Heavenly Father in your life, just open your eyes. He is right there.
So we have just under 2 weeks until Hector is baptized!!! And we had two more people early in the week commit to baptism! They are amazing and we have had great lessons with them and have not had even one doubt with them! And later that day, I got bit by a Saint Bernard! It was huge! But it was a members dog and luckily my skin is iron, so it couldn't break through.
Wednesday, I had my patience and humility tested. It started of normal, but then we went on splits with a member and his son. I went with the father and then we started our night. Little did I know that I was going to get hounded on for the next 2 1/2 hours... he's a returned missionary, so that means he knows "everything". I guess he wanted to show me the ropes or something, but all I wanted to do was go home after the first 15 minutes. When we got back with the other two I talked in English so they couldn't understand me and told Elder Cowdin we needed to go home. So we did. Good times...
We had to drop another girl Thursday, but the spirit talked through me for 5 minutes and I told my comp that I had no idea what I said after the lesson. It was NUTS!
Friday we broke our record of lessons in one day! We had 7 and the max we are able is 8 or 9 depending! I also found a tic on my hand that morning. So we burned it and called the doctor. After Elder Cowdin got off the phone he told me, "shut the windows... this is about to get intense". We had to check each others bodies for more. Not quite down to the birthday suit, but pretty close. We got pretty tight that day in our companionship.
Sunday was the best! We had all our investigators come to church! ALL of them!!! And the night was even better. We had changes last night, but I wanted nothing else but to stay here. So we waited from 9 to 9:30 in silence for the call. We finally get it, and WE DIDN'T HAVE CHANGES!!! This has only happened one other time in Chalco history where the trainer and trainee stay together after training!!! We both get to see our great investigators get baptized!!! So pretty stoked right now!
So that's what I got this week.
