This week I went on divisions with Elder Lopez, I'd been on divisions with Elder Lopez a long time ago when I got to this area. As we were walking around his area and we say some kids playing in the sewage ponds, the Sanhas. They were fishing or something. Elder Lopez goes over and talks to them and jokingly asks if there's a shark in the pond. Long story short it turns out the kids were Mormons. They wanted us to talk to their mom and dad. It turns out one of the little brothers hasn't been baptized yet and he wants to. From now on Elder Lopez and I call the sewage pond the holy sewage pond, because that's where we found investigators to baptize.
It's really hot again in Argentina. Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday it was so hot. 120 degrees Fahrenheit.
We've been working with the family M, he's a Dr and turns out the mom was a missionary like 10 years ago. He is really starting to open up and he was going to go to church this weekend but Satan put his horns in. Hopefully he'll come next week. C was also going to come to church but right before she came to church her mom showed up at her house for a surprise visit. So she didn't want to leave her so she wasn't able to come to church. This week we found another investigator in our area named M. Saturday in the adult session of stake conference. After one of our members brought an investigator to church who wants to get baptized. He's set a date for baptism for 26th of December.
This week with stake conference there were a ton of meetings on Saturday and Sunday. Originally we planned the baptism for Saturday at 3PM but G and A couldn't get baptized then. Then we moved it to Sunday after Stake Conference. Then we talked to the assistants and president wanted it before Stake Conference so we moved it. Then the bishop that is in charge of the stake center called and said we couldn't have a baptism Sunday morning because they didn't want it dirty before Stake Conference. We called the stake president to get permission to let them get baptized and it all worked out. We were running around all week trying to get the baptism ready. The baptism was brought to pass. It was super cool they showed up at 8 AM. We got dressed in white, took some pictures. A lot of people showed up for their baptism. The water was super cold. I baptized Aa and Elda Tapia baptized G. After we ate cookies. After stake conference they were confirmed and they are new members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. That was probably my favorite baptism of my whole mission just because we worked so long and so hard with them. They are just so cool. I love them so much.
Transfers happened again, surprise surprise, I stayed in the area. I really excited that I'll be here for Christmas and New Years because it is a great area. I stayed here with Elder Tapia, he's a good guy I like him.
Love you guys a ton and I'll see you all later.
