What a crazy good week!!!
So this week just started out crazy!! We changed our last monday to a normal day so we could have p-day on Saturday with the AP´s and office elders. We had intercambios with Fuengirola and Hna. Lionetti came here to Málaga with Hna. Guerrero and I. We were able to teach a few people in the evening so that was good. Michael failed us so it made us a little nervous because he was supposed to be baptized on Wednesday. But we did get to teach Brayan (Edith´s 8 year old son). We also saw a Nigerian man named Aziz and we talked to him about baptism and he said he doesn´t want to make a mistake afterwards. Then after a lesson, we saw him and he told us he was going to buy a cigerette. He is a good guy, he just has to quit a few bad habits. Hna. Lionetti is hillarious. She has such a cool attitude. I just love her.
Tuesday we had district meeting then we ate together with the other district. Hna. Guerrero made a dish called papa de guancallino?? haha I don´t know how to spell it. Or if that is even close. But it was SUPER spicy, but still good. Then we saw Michael and we taught him the rest of the lessons. We had to teach them super simply, but he understood what was going on. Then he had his interview. It went great!
Wednesday was a CRAZY day. I mean CRAZY. Probably the craziest day on my mission. We didn´t know if we could help get Edith and Brayan ready for their baptism. We saw Edith in the morning and finished the lessons, she said she still wanted to get baptized so we had her run to the church and said we would meet her there for after. We ran to Milagros and Mari and taught them and then ran back to the church.
After being at the church, we talked to Edith then had to run to an eating cita. It was a little far away, and the food wasn´t prepared when we got there. Then when it was prepared, we ate appetizers first, then two giant lasagnas. It was good, we were just super stressed out because we had to go teach Brayan all of the lessons so that he could get baptized with his mom. We got there in time, taught Brayan and then he had his interview. Then it was the baptism. I had to give a talk in English, and it was so scary because guess who showed up.... PRESIDENT DEERE. We invited his daughter, Annie, because she invited Michael to be baptized. It turned out fine, but when they were baptized Michael had to be baptized 3 times because it was just a little rough. Oh man, I¨m just glad they were baptized and everything went great.

Thursday we had weekly planning, then we went to Concilio. It was good. Last time was better, but it was still super fun. We were supposed to get kicked out to go sleep somewhere else again, but Hna. Deere asked us if we wanted to sleep on the couches again. We said sure. They were outside on the deck and she just asked if we just wanted to sleep out there. It was just like camping. Or the closest thing we could get to it on a mission.
Friday we had the concilio part and then President told us where we were going. He went around the circle. It was fun.
The only sad part was saying goodbye to everyone. It was really depressing.
I sat by Hna. Johnson on the train ride back and talked to her. She was super depressed and it made me really sad. I hope she is happy when she gets home. That night, Jhardel accompanied us on a few lessons and we ended up teaching quite a few people. It was a good night. We saw Angelica and she is just the cutest thing ever.

Saturday we played sports with everyone. We played volleyball and I played with Gonzales and we won! It was fun. Then we played soccer and I got to be on the natives´ team. It was awesome! I loved it. That night Elenir invited us over to eat! It was super yummy, like always. The bishop´s family was there again too. IT was bbq and the best rice and salad! YUM!!
Sunday was great! We only had 2 investigators in church... but we had 8 recent converts there. All the ones that have been baptized since I¨ve been here have been coming! It makes me so happy. We taught Michael last night and we asked him how he felt about being confirmed. He said, ´´I felt something different enter my body. I don´t know how to explain it, but I feel different´´ He is the most prepared people I have ever met. He loves God and he just wants to do what God wants him to do. He is the coolest guy ever. He also said that he loves the way he feels when he feels the Holy Ghost. He is such an amazing guy.
It´s been a good week. I´m super excited for a new transfer. It´s going to be a great one!!!
I love you!
