Wow, that is pretty amazing. 30 years. I have not even been alive for 30 years yet. Haha. That is pretty weird. Being with someone 10 years longer than I have lived. But that is super awesome. Congratulations.
The pad has not been too bad. I don't know if this really makes you feel better or worse, but for the record, it is a lot better than the Jamaica pad was. So just for your information. Last week we mopped the floor in by our study room, and it looks a lot better. It was realyl nasty, and we put a little elbow grease into it, and it still isn't great, but it is looking pretty good.
That is interesting to hear about the Blietchau kid. You should tell Heidee to try to talk to him. It is great missionary oppurtunity. He is a great kid, and the teenage years are really when you are going to be making the decisions that will affect how you spend the rest of your life. SO that would be great for her to find out the deal.
As far as the work, everything is going really well. Javier got confirmed yesterday, so that is really good. His daughter Rachel was supposed to be baptized yesterday, but wasn't able to do it, because we could not get her taught everything, due to her living with her mother and such, but we taught her yeasterday, and only need one more visit, and she will be baptized this Sunday. Out investigator Norma also has a baptismal date for this Sunday, but we are not sure if it will happen. She is living with her boyfriend, so obviously has to move out to be baptized, and the boyfriend is now saying you can stay living with me and we can get married, or you can move out and I will never see you ever again. She does not want to get married, but wants to stay as boyfriend and girlfriend. So we are working with that. She is realyl stuggling and he is realyl giving her a hard time. But she will get baptized, it is just a matter of when. This sunday can still happen. As far as the ex communicated member he is doing great and is getter baptized this Saturday, his family is flying in this week, and his son is going to baptize him. It is super exciting.
I will call for the insulin this week then, and I will let you know what is up.
So something really cool happened this week. On Friday the ward had a Valentine's day party (a little late) and they asked the missionaries to provide some entertainment. We had a couple things we had come up to do, but we had a better plan, and it ended up working. We got Javier, the guy who had been baptized for about 5 days, to bring some karaoke cds and sing at the party. He used to sing as a professional in the Dominican Republic and Mexico. It was totally amazing. Everyone loved him. It was so good. It was way exciting. He said it was the first time he had sang in 4 years. He did a great job. Then my companion played and sang a couple Elton John songs and did a great job.
On tueday there was a Fireside put on by the Young Women on missionary work, and the asked to the oldest missionaries to bear their testimonies, and weirdly enough, it touched me to be one of the two. It was really interesting. It made me feel really old. Anyways.
I think other than that that is about all that is new with me. Things are still going pretty well. Transfers will be next week. We will see what happens.
