16 months down… only 2 to go…

13 Aug


2 MORE MONTHS. Ahhhhhhhhh. Cool.
Well first off, Hna. Acosta and I are staying together in Varela for a third change. Apparently a looootttt of companionships stayed together for 3 changes. That hardly ever happened with Pres DaSilva, but Pres Armstrong did this… maybe that’ll be his “thing.” With Pres DaSilva it was like 2 changes with a companion and you’re gone. But, 3 changes is a long time. And to be honest, I’m not that excited for this… but it’ll be ok. We need to learn something else from each other and we need to baptize more people in Varela.

Speaking of baptisms… Marcos got baptized! Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay!!!! Everyone, but I mean EVERYONE in his house was SUPER sick, and so only his stepdad, who is also our investigator, went. It was a great baptismal service. Our new Branch President is a bossssssss and he helped us out a lot. We sang “When I Am Baptized” as a special number. Haha. I sang in english and Hna Acosta in spanish. It was actually pretty nice. But the funniest part is that after he got baptized, that night we went over to their house, and Marcos was getting ready to go to a dance party thing. Haha. And we were like “Remember the commandments!!” and he was like “I’ll be at church tomorrow, no worries!” … Yeah. We got a text from his mom at 9 :00 AM that said “Marcos JUST got home… and he just wants to sleep… what do I do!?” and so we told her to do everything possible to get him to church ’cause we couldn’t go because we have to teach Sunday School. And so Daniel, his stepdad, came with Rodrigo, my favorite kid ever, and Marcos wasn’t with them. And I was like “Where is he!?” and he was like “Ha! Oh, he’s in the car sleeping. We can wake him up for sacrament meeting” …Hhahaha. Ooooooh, Marcos. So funny.

His sister is also a new investigator this week. Shes 12, but she definitely looks 16. Crazy. And she walked into our lesson with Daniel on Saturday and she was like “So, now that Marcos is baptized… what happens?!” and she ended up telling us she wants to be baptized. The funniest part: yesterday she had her primera communion at the catholic church, because she has to do it because she goes to the catholic private school… and right after that she came to sacrament meeting. Hahahaha. I love that family so much.

But yeah. This week is going to be great. We found a whole bunch of motivation and spunk this week, and so we´re pretty excited to find more people to teach. It’ll be hard this change, but whatever. Its supposed to be hard. Well. rock on. Keep it classy aaaaaaaaaand pray that we find exciting things to do in Varela on P-days so we don’t have to go all the way to 33. Which is where we are going now. Gonna go hang out with the hermanas and then play soccer with the elders. Fun!!
Looooooooove youz! Chau.
