sorry this week i am writing one day late. here is why: on sunday after church we got a call from our zone leaders saying that i had to go to the office. so i did. we got there and i was told that i would be returning to the capital on monday to finish up all the visa stuff. well, sunday night i went out and worked with elder saunders (yes my ccm companion) and his comp. then at night we had 10 elders in the zone leaders house there in las palmas because some of us were going to the capital. so the next morning we woke up at 3:30 and got on a bus by 5 for the 4 hour bus ride to guate (what they call the capital here). we got there and then got in a line in the immigration office and we had our pictures taken. then we returned to reu at 7. then by the time i ate and returned to brillantes the day was over, so i got permission to write today!! so yeah.
this week i have seen many miracles in my life. before this week i had been frustrated because i felt like i was working so hard and nothing was going great. on tuesday we went to check up on a reference that we had received from the bishop and as we began to speak to him it was so apparent that he was so ready for baptism. he works a very strange shift at work but he will be baptized on the 3rd of august. while this was without a doubt the biggest miracle i have witnessed so far in my mission i cannot go a day without finding some sort of miracle in my life.
this last week i also got my wonderful birthday packages. and THANK YOU ALL SOOOOOOOO MUCH!!!!!!!!! everything in them was wonderful especially the elephant tie, the whoopie pie cake mix, and my favorite thing: THE SIGNED JAVALE PICTURE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I HAVE NO IDEA HOW YOU GOT THAT BUT IT IS AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
so thats it, im still alive, still working, still sweating, and still loving it.
hope all is well whereever you are too
