Welllllll so this week. Was something special. ha! It was all going good, up until about Friday. We had 5 baptisms planned fro this Saturday, they had their Baptismal Interview, their papers filled out, their lessons, and everything ready for their baptisms. As we made our rounds Friday, to double check that everything was good for their baptisms, problems started popping up with every. single. one of them. ha! A few of them got surprise visits by their pastors from their menonite church, and changed their minds, the other had second thoughts, and didn't want to attend church every Sunday, and the other had an aunt come in and stop a baptism.... ha! Satan work just as hard as we do for every baptism! Every soul is such a fight. SO we ended up having just one baptism this week, which I am still extremely grateful. It was for Cristofer, a 9 year old boy, whos parents are menus active. Not to mention it was one of the coolest baptsims we have had. We assigned one of my converts, his name is Carlos, to give a talk, ( He is 11 years old) And he KILLED it! He is the only member in his family, and walks to church by himself every week. In the middle of his talk, he walked over to Cristofer, (the kid getting baptised) And gave him a huge hug, and just started crying because he was so happy that he decided to get baptised! haha I got hit with the spirit so hard, and seriously couldn't stop crying! ha Everybody was super touched by it, it was so awesome. He is a future missionary for sure! haha Butttt yeah. Lots of work! haha My comp was sick yesterday, so we had to stay in. It was so weird to just sit there. It has been a while since I have had time to just sit and relax haha He goes home in three weeks, so I think the stres of it all is getting to him! I have been learning a lot of Guarani with him. If you speak Guarani, it automatically gains trust from members and investigators, and I really do enjoy learning and speaking it too so its perfect haha Butttttttt other than that not much else out of the ordinary happened this week. I got to play Lord of the Rings on an acordeon! hahaha The guys acordeon literrally costs more than his house, so I felt pretty honored. Anywayyyyysssss so thanks for the love and support! Until next week!
