A Wedding and a Baptism...
To start, wednesday were the changes and we traveled to montevideo for that. A pretty normal meeting, nothing new. We got the elders and sisters that were coming to our zone and put them on the bus and left. I got to talk to elder england, and elder taylor on the way. My ex comps. Theyre doing really well, which made me happy. Thursday morning we woke up and put on our fancy clothes, yeah, because we had a wedding to attend. 10 in the morning and we left to go to the court house to be at the wedding of Daniel and Stella. In a tiny little back basement room, with the florecent light bulb, they got married. I have some photos that I will try to send. The whole deal only lasted about 20 minutes. They signed some papers and the witnesses signed some papers then they kissed and we threw rice at them. The next day was their baptism, friday the 13th. Actually one of the best days ever. In the morning they came to the church to have an interview with president and came out crying. I dont know how he does it, but hes good at it. They were really excited for their baptism so President bought us all hamburgers! yeah! The missionaries who found Daniel and Stella got to come back here from their areas to participate in the baptism. It was one of the most spiritual baptisms Ive ever participated in. They were crying, their kids were crying, the bishop was crying. It was great. They were so happy. Afterwards we had some cake and chips to celebrate and it was all good. That was friday and saturday was a normal day work. Nothing really new to report there, and sunday was good and normal too. We did have a miracle show up in church. A man just wandered in and said that his wife had died about 2 months ago and he said that needed to come to church. Well, do we have the thing for you! Really nice old man, about 70 years old. We invited him to be baptized on the spot and he accepted. We will see how that goes. We have a lesson with him tomorrow. Hopefully he makes it. Sunday we went out to the little part called Villa Sara again. We actually went on the mission map on the website and used the distance tool to see how far it is. 5.2 kilometers to our investigators house. so 10.4 total. Thats like 6 miles. One hour walking out there, 30 minute charla, and one hour walking back. Hopefully that pays off. We do have a really nice investigator out there called Bettina.
I dont really have a whole lot more, or at least I cant remember right now.
