This week went by way too fast, summer restarted in ovalle, and CAMBIOS are this wednesday!! Im gonna die, i hope hermana puertas stays with me and that i stay in ovalle!! Here's a little about my week!
FIRST OF ALL, A GOT BAPTIZED!!!!!!! :D:D:D:D Oh my gosh best day of my life. yesterday after church, he and an investigator of the elders in my branch got baptized and basically the whole branch showed and the primary sang A's favorite primary song and it was amazing. A is 10 and the most special kid i have ever met in my life. He is so intelligent and spiritually in tune, its amazing. And so is his older sister, M!! The only problem is that she is living with her boyfriend. :( But she's seeming way more interested in getting married to be able to be baptized now after A's baptism, so I'm hoping it goes well!!!!
So as i said before this week is cambios, and elder fuimaono went home to hawaii yesterday :( it was so sad to say bye to him!! and we said bye to our district with some food and it was so sad, i am going to miss this district tons! what else.... oh yeah! zone conference was good, i got mail for the first time so THANK YOU EVERYONE!! no i don't hate you i just barely got everything haha. and shout out to the ottesons for the seahawks shirt!!

basically this week besides the baptism was pretty average, my spanish is improving every day!! here's some interesting news of the week. everyone is telling us that because of the drought here in ovalle, the water is going to run out in june or july if it doesn't rain! so that's a little disconcerting. also our water in my neighborhood randomly shut off the other day for 20 minutes and came back and it was BROWN for a good ten minutes. so yeah you could say i'm not planning on drinking tap water again for a good while hahaha.
STORY OF THE WEEK. there are literally millions of dogs just roaming around, so hna puertas and i decided to count how many we saw in 40 minutes (in the streets, not in homes) and we got to 52!!! and for 10 of those minutes we were standing in just one place waiting for elder wilkes and elder perdomo to bring us the baptismal clothing! and then perro veinte followed us the rest of the day haha. its a good time here in ovalle.
Anyways, i hope you all are doing well, i love you all and the church is true, honestly i have never been so sure of anything in my life!!!
