Hello my fellow Americans! Life is good and chugging along as usual. And well this week was a little more painful and a little bit out of the norm, but it was still full of miracles and good tidings.
First and foremost, I had another ingrown taken out and it was more or less infected.... so that was just GREAT. Best part, in order for more toe to heal and the infection to go way I had to walk with a sandal on one foot most of the week. Long story short there were many heads turned and finger pointing....
so that was that.
But that didn't stop me from giving my all to the Lord. And so my companion and I went out and worked like nothing happened. We went and visited one of our investigators that we hadn't seen in a while. We got to the house and it didn't look like they were there, so we went to check the side of the house to see if we had any luck there because that's usually where they received us. While looking around our investigators giant rottweiler comes out of nowhere and bit me on the finger!!! We quickly ran to the nearest members house and they put alcohol and hydrogen peroxide and the whole deal on it. Luckily it was tied up and could only reach my finger and not my arm or leg because that would have been super chafa.
So yeah this week was a little more painful than the rest. We are teaching this golden investigator named Margarita who is progressing super well. She knew a ton about the gospel before we even met her, even most of the missionary rules. Her boyfriend is a member return-missionary and basically all of her coworkers are faithful members of the church and they help us out a lot. She already knows the church is true but she doesn't know what day she wants to get baptized. But my companion and I are praying and fasting that she'll stay strong for her goal.
This is the last week of the transfer and I'm really nervous about leaving my area next transfer. I really love it here in Poza Rica, everyone is super nice and I've gotten to know every member in my area on a personal basis. But I'll do what the Lord wants me to do always. Whether it be in here in Poza Rica or somewhere else. Well Christmas is in 5 weeks and that's crazy to think about. Haha it's crazy how fast time passes. I love this time of the year when we can celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior. He is truly the reason I do what I do and Christmas is a time filled with so much love, music and gladness and most of families. It's what the Gospel is all about, families. It's where the Gospel of Jesus Christ truly thrives. I love you all and I consider you all my family. Until next time!
