Hola mi familia!
Well this week flew by! I don't even know why. A few of the days had a couple unexpected things happened that made our days feel like nothing really happened.
So first off. We got transfer calls, and I'm heading to Bowling Green, Kentucky! I'm super excited! My companion is elder Hamilton, and as of right now he's the only Spanish elder that I don't know. So I'm excited to tell you all about him next week!
Then Saturday morning Maria and Daniel got baptized! It was a super awesome service. And Maria went all the way under the first time! Which is great, because we were worried she would flail around because of her fear of water. But it all went well. They were confirmed yesterday at church. Just super cool stuff.
Alondra and Jose are progressing really well! We had 2 lessons with them this week, and one of them we taught half of the plan of salvation with the bishop but got into a really deep doctrine discussion. Then on Saturday we finished the rest of the lesson and had a really good 2 hour lesson. We tried to leave, but they had more questions and wanted us to stay longer. So we did. Then they came to church yesterday and stayed for the full 3 hours. And today we are having family home evening with them at a members house. So I have a feeling I'll be making a quick trip back here pretty soon to see them get baptized. I'm super excited for them.
Now for the unexpected things. It was mostly Thursday. So we had a planned service project of handing out 300 flyers per companionship in our zone at every door in East Nashville. It is for a family history fair that one of the wards is putting on. So we had three hours to do it. It was basically just running up and down streets. Then after we ran to the hospital, because we got a call from one of the part member/ less active families that we have been working with. The dad was in the hospital because he has kidney failure. So we spent a long time looking for him. Especially because we went to the wrong Saint Thomas at first. Then for dinner we were heading down to pick up the other elders and we were stopped in traffic. And then a big white Tacoma rear ended us. So we pulled off and dealt with all that. We had to wait 2 hours for the cops to get there, which wasnt good because it let the Hispanics that hit us really worry about getting deported. So we tried to calm their nerves. They got out just fine. But that put us until 7:30. And so we ran home and ate really quick and ran to the lesson with alondra, Jose and bishop. Then the next couple days we had to go around doing stuff for the repairs of the car. Fun stuff. I've been getting a lot of calls from these different therapy places that want me to come in and get a free check up. But I keep telling them I'm going to bowling Green and they just get confused and hang up. Haha
I'm now currently sitting in bed with some stomach bug that hit like half the ward yesterday. So sorry if this email is bad or anything, I'm a little out of it.
