The biggest news is this: Carlos got off probation early!!!! He is being baptized this upcoming saturday, August 23, at 10:00 in the morning. It's so awesome!! He is super stoked. I am too! And we have started to really teach his twin brother David and we set a baptism date with him for October 11 and Carlos is going to do it! It's just so great!
The second biggest news is that I'm not being transferred!! Elder Urry and I will be together for one more transfer. It's kinda crazy cause he goes home at the end of this one! Cray-Cray!
Third biggest news: although Mike isn't going to make his baptismal date for September 6, we have a different investigator that is going to be baptized that day! The one and only Nathan Pacheco. Alex's little bro. And we are going to have Alex baptize him! That's going to be totally awesome! Also, Tony is still doing really well, and if he can go the next couple weeks without smoking, will be baptized on september 2, as planned. Also, Angel is doing really well, and we are still planning on baptizing him on september 20.
The fourth biggest news: We had a really good turn out at church yesterday! A total of 7 investigators came to church! Talk about awesome! Three of the investigators who came are three new ones that we picked up this last week. A family was moving into the apartment complex where Carlos lives and so we helped them move some stuff, and it turns out that the mom was baptized about 5 years ago and she want's her kids to be baptized as well and the best part is they actually want to do it too! Not just cause their mom wants them too. So that's awesome! We will be setting baptismal dates with them this upcoming week probably.
So as you can see, this week was just super awesome!! Although I had some bike troubles this week. A couple flat tires. That's always a pain. But it's alright. All taken care of.
But yeah, that's about all the exciting news for this week! Sounds like everything is going well at home!! School is starting again huh? That's fun! Sometimes I think I miss school and then I remember that I don't haha. Maybe in another year I will miss it more. Hopefully, cause I got a lot of school left!
Those games for the sophomore day sound super fun!! I wish I could watch them haha!
Chances of me going back to the desert? Hopefully high!! I love it out there!! In reality though, I don't really know if I'll ever get back out there. :( I'll be praying for it though!
Haha that's awesome you are going out to lunch with the carlsons! I think I will have to go out to eat somewhere that day too! It's so crazy that we've been out a year already!
Well, I hope you all have a really great week!! Thanks for all your prayers and love! This church is true. No doubt in my mind!
Love, Elder Wise
