What's up suckas! first of all I just wanna say thank you so much for all the Christmas and Birthday goodies and wishes! its managed to be a pretty good Holiday season here in my old Kentucky home haha so thanks so much! So on Friday for my birthday it was a pretty normal day, we had a English family sign up to feed all 6 of the Elders here in Georgetown so we went over with the car elders and were waiting on the couch talking to the family and then the other elders and the father walked in and they had all these balloons and huge presents and i was super confused because i didnt tell anybody that it was my birthday but it turns out, the balloons and cake and presents werent for me haha the family also had a couple from the ward over and they had just recently adopted a baby boy a few months ago and the 26th was his 1st birthday haha so at least I got to eat cake and ice cream! it was pretty funny.
This week was really fun, but the work was pretty slow haha a lot of our investigators who we normally meet with a few solid times a week that we just couldn't meet with, either they're out of town or they have family in town so this week was just a little crazy haha not super productive but it was still a great week! So a few years ago the English elders here in Georgetown baptized a kid named Jesus and we have been teaching his mom for a few months now and one day we were just knocking doors like we usually do and the bishop of the English ward called us and told us that Jesus's brother was in the hospital in Lexington and his mom was staying there with him so he asked if we could go down with him to visit them and give them a blessing (because bishop doesn't really speak Spanish) so we dropped everything and went down to the University of Kentucky hospital in Lexington and talked to Joséfina and Guillermo and it was pretty cool to be able to give him a blessing. They said he has something wrong with his blood like he started coughing up blood at work and something to do with his liver so he's going to be in the hospital for 2-3 weeks so we talked to them for a little and gave them a Book of Mormon to read which was good. we hadn't really been able to make a head way with Guillermo before but he seemed to listen pretty intently to us haha so hopefully one day he'll listen to the missionaries.
We got to teach our investigators Jorge & Zaira finally, it had been a few weeks since we've seen them so it was good to finally hear from them again. we set it up and we are going to meet them at the church building here in Georgetown and have a little tour of the church so that'll be good!
This week was a lot of fun and super different and honestly I'm kind of excited to get back to the normal routine of missionary work! I love you guys and hope you have another great week! It was awesome getting to talk to you!
Para siempre Dios esté con vos!
Love Elder Follett
