11 de julio

dear family and friends,

what an eventful week!!! we married people, baptized people, blessed some people who have some problems in their lives, received some crazy news about the changes tomorrow, and went bowling today! and i bought a sweater....

well first off, we had 4 baptisms planned. bueno, 3 baptisms but 4 people. but we only ended up baptizing 2... here's what happened... tuesday we went to rosario's house for an appt and she tells us that her and her husband are getting divorced and that he is crazy and has some crazy problems all the sudden. so she moved to the state. like 2-3 hours away. but she was really sad cause she wants us to baptize her.. but she already knows where the chapel is where she's gonna live and she will be baptized because all we have to do is pass her address to the missionaries over there and ya..listo...

and then we didnt end up baptising Hugo because he hadnt gone to church in like 2 years... but he says hes gonna start going to church now so he can get baptised. but we married him and his wife norma thursday and we baptised norma friday. and now the mom finally wants to get baptised. but she says after Hugo gets baptised... we will see what we can do..

then on sunday we baptized Elizabeth. well actually her husband, nacho, baptized her. cause he was already member. but he was just a deacon before. idk why because he is like 26... haha. so before the baptism we made him a priest so he could baptize his wife... so ya that was a cool experience for them.. and us.

oh ya, and theres changes tomorrow! im staying here but my comp is leaving! so sad. and weird because he only has 1 change here. but hes gonna go somewhere else and receive a new missionary and become senior companion again. oh did i ever tell you i had become senior when i had special changes like 3 weeks ago... so its gonna be a little challenging because i still dont know the entire area very well... but also they are sending 2 more missionaries here to have one of the wards i had. so now i'll just have one ward... and one of the new missionaries they are gonna send is gonna be elder ericksen! from my generation from the mtc! so im super stoked for that. except him and his comp arent gonna know their area and so for a couple days i'll have to help them. its gonna be me and 3 other elders that are gonna be clueless as to where they are.. and along with allllllll that, im gonna be an instructor... thats right, im having a son. a GREENY!!! it was so random to hear that because i only have almost 8 months in my mission and usually people dont train until they have a lot under their belt. these next 3 months will be a big change for me and kind of a challenge.. but i have faith. changes are based off revelation by the president.....

oh and today we went to a sweet mall and went bowling! i won. haha. well i think thats about it for the week...

love you all,
elder inglish
