Well this week was interesting. We spent the whole week preparing Anderson to be baptized. He lives with his grandparents cause his dad is a drunk and his mom just can't support him so he lives with his grandparents who aren't members but his tio (uncle) is a member and a return missionary as of 2 months so he was a really good support for him. So we had the permission and everything for Anderson to get baptized this past saturday BUT Friday at 8 at night his tio (the return missionary amd everything) calls us and tells us he's gonna be out of town so we can't do the baptism without him and that Anderson's not ready and a whooooole bunch of junk. So we cancel the baptism. Saturday we go to visit Anderson and his tio opens the door!!!! THE STINKIN LIAR. He didn't go out of town but he lets us in and he starts telling us that Andersons sins will be on our heads and blah blah a ton of junk. And then he said that breaking the law of chastity and drinking cafe (coffee) are the same sin and equally bad....and then he said that mission presidents can't receive revelation. So he's messed up and that's where we are with Anderson.
OHHHH THE MOST EXCITING OF THIS WEEK!!! Guty cut his hair!!!! On Tuesday we went over to his house, made two braids, I cut one and HJ cut the other then we took him to the barber shop and they just cut it all! it was awesome! Also on Saturday morning we stuffed 50 BOMs in a bag and went and gave them out in the market (like they do on The Best 2 Years) we re-enacted it and Guty did it with us! We gave them all out in 30 minutes!! It was so awesome and super fun and i'll probably do that a lot more throughout my mission.
Laura on the other hand is sooooo awesome!!!!! She has so many questions and last night in her prayer after the lesson she said forgive me for the things about your gospel that I had mistaken and thank you for sending these girls to teach me the right. So she is awesome and then today we saw her getting on a bus and she had her Book of Mormon in her hand!!! She is so awesome. So she will be baptized this coming Saturday.
Well, this week is HJs last full week! Next Wednesday morning she heads for guate. So we will be in a trio this week. I'm really gonna miss HJ.
Love you all and thank you so much for everything! Have a good week!
