Week 84

HEY PEOPLE! i don't even know what to say about this week haha i guess i can start with the biggest news, José got baptized! i was so dang excited i had to like restrain myself from doing the baptism dance after haha but it went really good, it was really stressful because we had to like organize everything because none of the leaders of the church speak Spanish so like we were in charge of everything haha but it ended up being really good. José was really happy after, before he was a nervous wreck though haha he's like really timid and kinda quiet and this week before the baptism we asked him if he would like to share his testimony immediately after his baptism and he just said no way haha he said he really didn't like to talk in front of people, his actual words were "maybe after a year of being a member I'll give my testimony" haha so we said okay that's fine no big deal, so we didn't put it in the program. Well the member who was conducting the meeting decided to just say to heck with the program and he invited José to give his testimony, and he just looked at me and said "nooooo!" haha but he got up and gave his testimony and it went really good! it was a lot of work but it was so worth it, it was probably the most amazing experience to see him from start to finish, he has come a long way and learned a lot and it has been so rewarding to teach him and get to know him more. but its not ending there! to the surprise of everyone I'm not getting transferred! President Brough called and asked me to train another brand new missionary haha so I'll be staying here in Louisville for at least 2 more transfers! (and i only have 3 left haha) but I'm super excited to train a new missionary again but i think the biggest feeling is shock haha i really didn't see that one coming! So maybe there's something i didn't learn the first time that i need to learn this time haha
Other than all that this week was like CRAZY! i had to do an emergency exchange with the Zone Leaders to interview a 16 year old girl for baptism and it was up in the air if she would qualify for baptism or not but with some help from President Brough we decided that she would so she got baptized on Saturday which was pretty cool. Also a lady who Elder Weeks contacted on the street on an exchange like 2 months ago got baptized on Saturday also which was pretty cool!
anyway, i love you guys a lot and im so grateful for you! keep on keeping on!
Para siempre Dios esté con vos!
