camera fixed :D (January 24th, 2010)Written by admin on February 7th, 2011
Well if you haven´t noticed yet I finally got everything worked out with my camera, it was quite a pain but I was able to do it! If Elder Carter wasn´t such a computer geek I don´t think I would have been able to do it. But yes you´ll notice that I took some sweet pictures and did some cool stuff :). One of the very last ones with the pyramid is with Elder Johnson, that one´s for the Callisters. I think you´ll enjoy the pics more than my letter because a fun filled letter is looking a little doubtful today. Well, maybe but some of the things I´m going to talk about happened last week that I forgot about. O and great news!!! I found out today that our investigator, Gabriel in La Loma got baptized! I was really happy to find out, I really hope he serves a mission, he is such a good kid.
This is cool, I got bit by a dog!! There´s a funny saying between missionaries that says you don´t have to outrun the dog, just your companion. Just have that in mind has I tell you my story… We were running in the rain with Luis, back to the pension to go get jackets. I happened to be the furthest back and I heard a dog barking at us but I never really saw it but I felt him bite me on the leg. It wasn´t that bad, it still hasn´t healed but I´m going to be alright. We went by the church later that day and the members were there and I said to one of them a dog bit me that day and there was a big hush in the room and everyone was telling me I needed to go to the hospital right away but I called Hermana Northcutt and she said I´ll be just fine and so far I still don´t have lock jaw. We talked to the owners and the dog was vaccinated too but they really wanted me to go so I wouldn´t sue them. Another thing I´d like to address is the family picture. Everyone looks great! Except me… haha jk but really why´d yall but a goofy face pic of me on the thing, o well, ya fue. Also on the calendar for our family picture everyone looks great! Except its got me doing the blue steel look… o well, I thought it was kinda funny but I was just wondering why if it was a joke or something.
Something else exciting for me is that I cut Elder Carter´s hair! Your probably thinking its not that big but the thing is, is that he explained to me the technique how you do it with scissors on top and I did it. I was feeling pretty pro and he was laughing the whole time because he said I had this big grin of satisfaction on my face. I don´t know why it just felt like it was a great accomplishment never cutting hair with scissors when the day to day hair cut family member (this isn´t directed at dad I promise haha) is limited to the machine. I guess you just have to try it.
Well on with the week, something that was a little devastating was with Daniel. I remember in the class with Brother Bott he said sometimes it might be necessary to warn the people you teach about the temptations that follow after listening to the missionaries because the devil too knows the truth. Anyways, Daniel and Juana that went to church last week got into a fight the sunday after they went to church and separated. Luckily he ran into the other missionaries and told them when we would be able to find him. Later when we talked to him he told us the news and he said that his wife is nowhere to be found and she left him with their baby daughter and so he hasn´t been able to go to work. We have been pretty worried but we have been praying a ton for them and you guys need to pray for them too.
On the bright side, Gabriela has been progressing and she came to the english class we have been teaching! Unfortunately she didn´t come to church because she left for Cordoba. The rest of our investigators, they´re kind of there some are dropping out and but we are adding more. Thats the good thing is that we keep finding good people. The best guy we found this week is Yamil. We found him at 9:00 last night, taught him and he seems real excited to read the Book of Mormon. He told me he has gone to lots of churchs but can´t quite find any real answers. We told him to put himself in the shoes of Joseph Smith and when we gave him the Book of Mormon his eyes got really big and fixed on it.
Anyways I hope you all have a great week I love you guys!
