Well this week was a little rough. Unfortunately Silvia and her kids did not get baptized, but we are trying hard to do what we can to help them. They feel really nervous about getting baptized. The man down under is working hard to have them not get baptized. We will be working hard to fix that.
This week chicken pox hit the ward, almost all of the little kids were sick and out of school all week. Sucks for them, but we were able to visit members and talk with them about sharing the gospel. I was worried because my companion thinks he has never had it, but it appears that he has because he hasn't gotten the pox yet. Good news.
We have been having some difficulties having unity with our ward, especially with the bishop, but after some long conversations with him, things are looking up. We should be able to do a lot better work with them on our side. They might even call a ward mission leader (ours went inactive and we can't find him). We are hoping that will happen. It should be good. Real good.
It seems that the time is slipping away fast, which is good because it gives me more of a reason to work really hard. Sooner than we can believe, we'll be seeing each other.
Well, I love you all so much!
