Ok so in the office I am the financial Elder. My comp, Elder Vaz, is in charge of paying all the rents and services and everything like that. So from the 1st of the month to the 10th we have to pay all the rents and services or else the misionaries get fined more money. So this week for 4 days straight we left at 9 oclock in the morning and from this time to around 5 or 6 in the afternoon we were out driving from place to place paying this stuff! I think I drove over 20 hours this week hahahaha it was insane! And on top of that, our contract for the house we are in right now is expiring so we have to clean up and repair the house we are in right now! so yup lets just say this week was super insane! we litteraly never stoppped! when we finished the work of the day in the office we rushed to our area for usually only 1-2 hours a day! it is never fun to have such little time in the area but I definitly saw some miracle this week!
So even with only about 5 hours in the field this entire week, we were blessed with 2 baptisms! Lautaro Bustamante and Lautaro Segura! 2 kids that are 9 and 10 years old! They are so awesome! Both baptisms went so well! The first one was on thursday and the other one on sunday! Heavenly Father is always watching us! He saw how hard we were working this week and the stress that we had and he blessed us with success! I know that if we do the things he asks us to do, he will bless us! We are not alone in the life, we just need to follow His plan and not our own!
So one of the coolest things ive ever heard happened after Lautaro Segura's baptism! unfortunatly our missionary leader of the ward filled up the font with water and he filled it up with freezing cold water. Im not sure what he was thinking but the water was super cold! i was a little nervous for Lautaro but we obviously went through with it. After the baptism we get out into the bathroom to change and Lautaro is shivering and can barely talk but he stops and says to me, "Even tho the water was freezing, I loved MY baptism!" Honestly I think the biggest smile ever appered on my face!
I love the mission so much and especcially helping amazing people like Lautaro find the truth! The mission has not changed who I am but it has changed how I am! I am so much happier now on the mission than before and know that the mission is the best place for anyone old enough to serve! If you are thinking about serving and are 18 do it! If you are thinking about serving and are 24 do it! There really is not anything better than a mission for your life! Love you all so much and hope you have a wonderful week!
So for a pday today we got up a little early and painted our house! we painted for about 5 hours and then started cleaning up other stuff and ended up cleaning up our pool we have out back! It was hoenstly the grossest pool i have ever seen! I am sad that we didnt take the picture earlier... this was about half way through cleaning it out when we took the picture. it was so much worse hahaha! We cleaned it for like 2 hours so heres some pics of my fun pday 👍
this is a picture of Lautaro Bustamante! he was baptized on thursday! hes also such an awesome kid!! :)
Ok so you all understand! We had 2 baptisms this week! Their names are both Lautaro! hahaha this is Lautaro Segura! After his baptism on sunday we went to his house and had an asado and I made a Pasta Frola which is kinda like a big pie looking thing with the help of his mom Jimena! It was super awesome!!! we took a lot of pics hahaha! ill send more
