I had an awesome week! Me and my companion finally clicked a little bit and we worked our butts off and it looks like we will be having a baptism this week or the next. I am more comfortable being senior companion and my companion is helping me adjust and making the transition really smooth and easy. I had my birthday on Saturday and it was....amazing! I can honestly say it was one of the better birthdays that I have ever had. I had 3 "Birthday Parties" 2 of them were surprise parties that our investigators and members planned and the other one was something that we planned for the night. We ate a ton of cake, Chilean pizza and we had a BBQ. I had a blast and I would like to thank everyone who sent me letters, packages or anyone who has even prayed for me and just so you guys know the Chileans treat me very well down here, they are a good people. I am really grateful for all of the support I have from them and from you all.
This next week I think we will have a baptism and if not it will be the next week. I am really getting down to business here with my new companion and we are just forgetting ourselves in the work. I love working hard because the time flies by and you really just don't have time to think about anything other than the work. The baptism that we have planned is for a girl name Alejandra. She is a 13 year old that is really smart and literally answer all of the questions that I ask her better than I can teach so I pretty much just ask her a bunch of good questions when we teach her and she basically teaches herself haha (if that makes sense)
Today we obviously have our pday and we went to a church building in central and we played soccer and basketball. I realized that I am a lot better as soccer then I am at basketball now and that's not because I am really good at soccer...I have just lost all basketball skills. This next week we are planning on going to play paintball again but it is kind of expensive so we will see what happens there. Nothing else too exciting happened this week but I will keep you guys updated on whatever goes on and if anything cool happens down here. Let me know if you have any questions....
