Ciudadela Ward, El Carmen Stake
Companion: Elder Villarreal
This was a pretty eventful week for us. To start, Elder Villarreal got sick and we had to go to the hospital. I guess sometime during the beginning of the week he ate something with milk which he wasn't supposed to do because he is lactose intolerant. So he was pretty much bed ridden for 3 days and we couldn't do too much. But I think all is well with him now. It's crazy to think that he will be in his home in 2 days!
Along with that, I will be getting a new companion this week. I'm not sure who it will be but I find out tonight.
Also this week our investigators, Y-------- and M-------- got married and baptized! We got special permission to go to their wedding too which was way cool! I'll include some pics!
The wedding was in the public court like building. Very awesome! It was just us two missionaries, Y-------- and M--------, and P-------- and Y--------, Y--------'s brother and sister in-law who live with them and are already members.
The baptism was great too! P-------- got to baptize his brother and M--------. It was his first time performing a baptism! We also baptized G--------, the mother of C-------- and P-------- whom we baptized 2 weeks ago, and D-------- and S--------, the two youngest kids in the family.
Colombia played again this week and they won! The streets were so crazy and music was blaring all night long! Parties and parties were everywhere! Futbol or soccer (nobody lets me call it soccer here) is really big and i would say is part of the culture here. Everyone talks about it here in the church and out! Just everyone! It's fun though. This morning we went and played a little bit of soccer at the church with some members.
Also I will include pics from our last district meeting!
