Week 83

Well this week was a pretty good week. We had 2 baptisms which is great! Juancho was one of them. We thought he wasn’t going to get baptized, but everything turned out great. Then Sunday came and we couldn’t find him, and he didn’t get confirmed. But the first half of his baptism is done, so next week we should be able to finish it.

This is what happened. Saturday morning we woke up and got ready, then went to the church to start cleaning and filling the font. We had planned with Juancho to pass by his house and pick him up at 10:30 to go together to the baptism. We are walking to his house and we get a text message that’s translated said, “Hey Juancho wanted to advise you that he won’t be able to attend his baptism today for x reasons and he will explain why later.” So we ran to his house, and he wasn’t there, and he wasn’t answering his phone. So we went to another investigator’s house and took him to the baptism (Matias). Then after the baptism was over, we are all sad because we didn’t baptize anyone, but we made the decision to do everything possible to have a baptism that day.

So after lunch I call Juancho like five times, and the fifth time he answered. He explained that he was in Plottier because some stuff happened to his family and a whole story, but I told him that there’s still time and everything is all ready and we could do his baptism at 7. He said sure why not, so we just got him baptized and that is that. Hopefully you can all understand that. It made sense in my head, jaja. So we can learn from that to never lose faith. Anything can happen if we try hard enough.

Then for the last pday, we went to the river and the Neuquén letters to take pics. Also Saturday was the birthday of our Mission Presidente, so of course the office got cake, haha. It was great!

Yep, and here in 8 days I will be out of the office and in some other area. I still don’t have any idea of where I’m going, but I know I’m going. Well that basically describes what happened this week,

Love You All,
Elder Newman
