So, I'm slowly turning into a puddle of melted gringo in this heat and pretty soon I'll be wearing black shirts! Other than that, this week was good.
One thing not so good was that we ended up not having our baptism. Our investigator felt it was too soon and is still a little worried about what his family will think. We have it scheduled for this Saturday and he passed his interview and everything, but still a little worried. We've been working really hard with him and he is a total champ with an awesome testimony. It's not a matter of if he will be baptized but when.
The work has been going good though. It just stinks that there's changes coming up next week and I or Elder Johnson could leave. We'll find out Saturday. It could be a really really sad day, or a really really happy one. Luckily, I know that no matter what happens, it will be what's truly best for me, Johnson, and this area. I just have to be patient, trust God, and work hard no matter what the situation. The changes this week are different, too. They are on Monday at 3:00, so we don't quite have as much time to say our goodbyes. Patience, trust, work.
To make this week even more interesting, our District Leader lost his phone and the Zone Leaders asked me to take the reports and play 'District Leader' this week. It's been a little stressful on top of everything else, but I definitely have a different perspective of things and I'm learning a lot.
Well, that's all I can remember (and this extremely hot internet cafe does not make it any easier to remember), so I'll leave you all with that. The temple was amazing today, like always. A perfect relief from all this chaos. ALSO! I skype home Sunday!!!!!! Shveeet! Well, have a great week!
