WEEK #27 WEIRD WEEK INDEED
Weird week indeed it was. But a good one. So about a week ago we found out that one of the members in our ward had to get baptized again because the church couldnt find her papers and so because this church is a church of order, she needed to get baptized again to have her papers. Her name is celeste and she is 16 and she lives in our area so we got a freebee baptism hahahha. It was really random and she was super super upset and confused and would just cry. Everything turned out well though. When we were at her house doing the interview, our mission President called and asked if it was true that she was getting baptized again. Turns out he knows this family really well because the older sister of celeste served for a bit in this mission while she waited for her visa. He loves this family and told us he would be at the baptism and then my comp told him that he should do it and we asked celeste and she said yes so we got to do a baptism with pres:) It was coooooool.
Somethin else really strange that happened this week. Getting ready to head out on saturday and work and the dog roxi walks through our house which it never has done, goes to the back part of the house and just starts puking. then starts foaming out the mouth and shaking and running into the wall and couldnt breath. We figured she got poised with something and so I had to grab her foamy mouth and open it up and we poured oil down it. Then milk. Then the last option coffee to get her to throw up and she wouldn't. So we just stayed there for the whole morning and thought she was going to die. She just keep running her head into the wall and then falling down and it really was sad to watch and I thought I was going to watch this dog die. We left it back there for a while cuz we didn't know what to do and we gave away all the pups to people that would give em milk. Turns out roxi is better now and now we want the pups back. we only got two now. Really weird experience.
Things aren't going too hot right now out here but we are working hard and just trying to do our best. I am learning every day and am learning a lot about myself and the weaknesses I have. But, God chooses the weak ones to do this work. Sometimes I wish I didn't have some of the struggles I do but God gives us weaknesses to help us humble ourselves and come to Him for help. I know this is His work and He gets the credit. Thanks for your love and support and prayers.
