hey all you guys on the other side of the world!!!
this week was kind of hectic with us. i had to go to a meeting at the mission office that talked about how we are supposed to finish our missions as strong as we can. the coolest quote that i could get from that slideshow pres made us was "you started a mission to finish it. keep going until to the end". the time is coming up here soon, but we are trying so bad to get as many amigos as we can to teach! HOWEVER A HUGE MIRACLE HAPPENED WHILE WE WERE IN LUNCH.
so get this. we are sitting down in a lunch with a member. i got a call from some random number on our phone. i went outside to answer it and i hear the voice of some random dude. he is like "are these the elders of departemental?" i answered yes and he said that he was an amigo from the santiago north mission. he moved to our sector like a week ago and he wanted us to pass by THAT day. we told him we couldnt because we had literally every spot on our agendas filled to the brim with stuff to do. he responded with "ah ya the thing is that i want to get baptized in a couple weeks. can you make that happen?"
we passed by his house literally at 9:45 at night, like 20 minutes before we are supposed to be home and everything. he IS LITERALLY A GOLDEN INVESTIGATOR. his name is rodrigo and he is a totally hipster nurse. he loves indie music and he literally stopped drinking coffee and smoking and alcohol 6 months ago. he accepted a bap date for the 15th of june!!!! HE IS SO COOL. his girlfriend is helping us so much with teaching him and bearing her testimony and its amazing!
a lot of the members are down my throat about how much little time i have left and its stressing me out!! "so tell us the colors of the wedding. tell us WHAT COLOR YOUR PHONE IS GOING TO BE. WHAT IS THE FIRST FOOD YOU ARE GOING TO EAT WHEN YOU GET THERE OH MY LANTA" its awful. im surviving though. 3.5 more weeks to go!
love all of you guys so much!
