Muchas cosas, este es que paso,
we had an interesting week, on Tuesday we had a baptismal interview for one of our investigators who was getting baptized on Friday, and her husband brought her to it, and before we had asked him to pick a date that he would like to get baptized. after his wife's interview we asked him if he would like his interview now to get it over with. he agreed, and they both passed their interviews, and when he came out he said he was going to be baptized on Friday with his wife.🤗 Then on the day of the baptism, about an hour before, i remembered i hadn't written my talk yet, so i threw one together, and it wasn't half bad if i do say so myself. the boiler in the church doesn't work right, so we turned on the cold and were going to turn on the hot later to warm up the water, but we forgot to turn on the hot, so it was full of cold water.😒 And then, when Elder Jones and Elder Cota were moving the piano to the gym, it fell over and Elder Jones tried to catch it but couldn't and smashed half his fingers. we gave him a quick blessing and he didn't want to go to the hospital, so we finished the baptism. we had members baptize them, and everything went fine even though we had to redo one of them. they both got baptized, and confirmed, so everything is all good.
Except for my companion's fingers, they are now black and blue and very swollen. he ices them, and members have told him to soak them in hot Epsom salt water, he hasn't yet. the other day, he tried to stab his finger to let out some blood, but it didn't work because its the muscle that's swollen. i got some pretty good videos and pictures of it. since then i have been driving our car, for the first time in 4 months, so that's fun.
yesterday, our chapel had a gas leak, so we had to drive 13 miles out and back to get to Fabens capilla, and we carpooled, so the other elders wouldn't waste miles, we only had one hour of church, but more people than i thought showed up, so that was good. but only two of our non-progressing investigators showed up to church, so that's a bummer.
We had a bunch of service opportunities this week, one was with the family that gave me the tea that made me puke, we were laying down bricks for a pathway infront of his house. he was making fun of Elder Faber and I, and Elder Cota less, and Elder Jones he was treating like a son.😒 he gave the 3 of us he was making fun of nicknames. Elder Faber's was Guero Loco, Elder Cota's was Chavalote, and mine was Minion, because aparently, i look like a minion. thats not even the first time!😤 our ward mission leader compared me to Milhouse from the Simpsons.😖
other than those things, everything is going good, we are having plenty of lessons, even though some of our investigators, have fallen of the baptism wagon, and one of our investigator's mothers hasn't let us in to teach him in almost 2 weeks. but we are getting ready for more baptisms, and more of sharing our testimonies with new investigators.
i am still having fun here, and i feel good everytime i share my testimony. thank you everyone, for supporting me in my calling.
Love you all,
