|Carlos Mariella Sophia and Easton's Companion Elder Williams|
What's up guys!!!
This week went pretty well. We started off on fire, burning through the days doing well, then it came time to prepare for baptisms and our plans just blew up. But we got it done. This week a family of 3 got baptized. Their names are Carlos, Mariela, and Sophia, as well as their youngest son Carlos. They are an awesome family. We aren't as close to them as we are with others but they are pretty awesome. They have a lot of problems financially right now, so it's a lil tough for them, but it will all work out in the end. On friday, we barely managed to get them married and baptized. We were supposed to meet them at the church at 1. We waited till 1:30 when we received a text saying that today they wouldn't be able to do it. We didn't receive a solid answer, so we went to his house to see what was going down. Turns out he had some things he had to take care of finacially, so we just arranged the wedding for the night. Distance from La Paz to Nagorote The ceremony was cool and we got a bunch of help from the lawyer who is a member. After that, we headed back to La Paz Centro. On the way we got stuck in traffic for 30 minutes or more and finally managed to get back around 7:30. By 8:00 they were baptized, and afterwords we got pizza.
Oh and the snake pictures. Alright, so we were at a recent converts house talking and teaching and what not, when this huge boa popped out of the bushes and started crossing the street. The crazy aunt screamed get the machete, and while her kids were getting the machete she started hurling rocks and bricks at it. She wasn't a very good shot and only managed to peg it like once or twice. Once she got the sword like machete in her hands she started hacking away at the snake. It was awesome and incredibly entertaining. To finish up, we gave a quick little gospel lesson using the snake as an example. Super dope super awesome. Also, we are working with a inactive family who haven't been to church in forever. They are awesome, dope, and super love-able. We are making things work guys. I love you guys a ton, you're awesome. Thank you for writing me and keeping me informed. Have a killer week.
