Wow what a busy week it has been! I´m going to start with our crazy day we had saturday! Well we had a baptism but our bishop doesnt have the bap. font keys so at 7 in the morning we had to go to the house of the other wards bishop, well the theme of the day is that no one was answering their phones! so we waited out there for 30 minutes then he miraculously opened the door! And we got the keys.
Well then we had an activity where we went to the terminal as a zone and contacted 150 people every companionship to had out all of the "He is the Gift" Cards. Well that was fun. I not only got sunburnt but i also got 2 marriage proposals from police men haha so its good to know that if things dont work out for me at home, I have always got some guatemaltecos here waiting for me :)
Well out bishops phone wasnt working and we had to get the chapel keys to go fill up the font. He tried sending us 50 messages but because he didnt have credit, we couldnt read any of them. so everyone was a bit frusturated. but we got the font filled and then it was time for the baptism, except everyone who had talks or a role in the baptism, whom i called and confirmed the night before, didnt show up.... so our bishop was a little mad and pulled us into his office after to have a little chat with us. haha but in the end, all was well, Cristian was baptized and he and his non member family really enjoyed the ceremony. Thats what really matters right?
That night after the baptism we also helped a member with their wedding reception. It was super fun and i absolutely love doing service!
This week we also had the ward christmas activity which was super fun. They asked us hermanas to do something, and since the other hermanas lost their phone it was a little hard to prepare something ahead of time. so we sang, and since latinas here are a little tone deaf, it was interesting haha but the good thing is that no one was listening. But i really feel like my dreams of becoming hannah montana are finally coming true!
Well everyone, thank you for all of the warm christmas wishes. I love you all and hope that you all have an amazing week. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! I hope you all stay warm and safe this holiday season and remember the true reason why we have christmas. christmas.mormon.org I love you all
