HA the titles of the emails are getting a little better!! hopefully i got your guys attention for a split second! here ill explain.
so we had to go to lunch on the literal opposite side of our sector. in our mission, unless you work in the office, you have to walk to every single meeting, every single cita, every single interview with the pres, etc. SO when i was walking up the street to go to lunch, we were nonchalantly walking across the street, when a blue chevy is comin at us from down the street. we THOUGHT that this chick was going to stop and let us finish crossing the cross walk, but she stopped literally 6 inches from me, anD THEN PROCEEDS TO CONTINUE DRIVING HER CAR. so, i got propped up on the hood of her car and as she then realized that there was a six foot three man on the hood of her car 3 SECONDS AFTER SHE HIT ME, she slammed on the breaks and i struck a landing on my feet in the middle of the intersection. i ran back to my comp, who was also awe stricken, and we continued on our way to lunch while this old women drove her blue chevy off into the distance. it was a SHOW.
but anyway, we had some sick baptisms this past week! saskias baptism was really cool! the d part was that only about 6 people showed up for the baptism, 4 of which were us and the other sisters who had been teaching her...but she was in love! i had the AMAZING opportunity to baptize her and it was such a spiritual experience! she started crying right after the baptism as she was getting out of the water!!! she was literally so prepared to get baptized its insane. the cool thing is, is that she wants to serve a mission too, so we have been taking her to the citas with our hatian friends that dot speak a lot of spanish as a translater!!! its been so awesome! saskia for mvp!!
ivan also got baptized this past week! our ward had a little difficulty trying to get the baptism too, just because there were so many other activities going on at the same time, so there werent that many people over there when ivan got baptized, but my comp got to baptize ad i got to confirm him! it was so awesome! you know, i a, literally going to miss this so much....i go home in about two months here soon, and i can honestly say that i love this mission so much making so many connections with people and being able to help others in their path to finding god and happiness. its going to be a fun next two months to say the least!
gotta scram! love all of you so so so so much!
