I’m sorry… But I thought that was quite the interesting bumper sticker, so I just had to take a picture and use it as my title today. But yeah, that was pretty funny.
Anyway, this week has been pretty exciting. We had our first interviews with the new mission president, which was good stuff. He’s a great man. We also had the chance to go to the Mission President’s Fireside last night in Spanish, and so we got to hear his Spanish. Also, his wife, who has been learning Spanish for round about two months, gave a little talk in Spanish – which was very impressive, I must admit.
Also this week there was the baptism of the Pacheco family from my last area. It was great stuff, and I got to go. We didn’t quite get to stay until the end, because we had another appointment, but I got to see them all be baptized, and I also got to congratulate them and whatnot. But yeah, it was great to see them take that step. I expected them to be baptized, but not quite so soon, so that was great.
Other than that, the only really exciting thing that happened was that we set a baptismal date with Janet. She’s not completely sure about it, but we set it as a goal. But she didn’t make it to church yesterday, so we may have to push it back a bit. We set it for the 4th of August, so we’ll see what happens with that. But yeah, she’s pretty much amazing. This week we taught her the Plan of Salvation, and she was very excited about it..
Anyway, that was just about it. This week was really pretty cool. Oh, and I’ve decided to include a thought this week. I took the opportunity to study Elder Bednar’s talk about keeping our words clean. I especially liked the reference that he made to the book of James in Chapter 2, I believe. It’s got some comments about how if we offend not in word, then we can ‘become a perfect man’ (or woman). Anyway, I really liked that.
Oh, yeah… So far so good with the shoulder. So, yeah. That’s good stuff. Keep on praying.
