Peleando con una peluca y algunas cosas (Fighting with a wig and some things)

Wow, what a week! I probably start most of my emails like that but seriously, what a week! We had un MONTON  of miracles happen this week!!! 

To start off the week we had a zone meeting on Tuesday and Hna Anderson and I were in charge of teaching to subjects of acting in faith and what it means to be a successful missionary. I was soooo nervous but it's as soon as it was our turn to speak, all of the nerves went away and we were able to teach everything without too many mistakes! 

After the meeting we went to our investigator, and talked to her about moving her baptismal date to the 21st and she was all for it!! Her only reservation is that she cut her hair super short and she's been using a wig, waiting for  her hair to grow.... Yes, a wig. We explained that she didn't need to wear her wig and that she seriously looked better without it. At the end of the lesson she was all for having a baptism on the 21st.

On Wednesday we were teaching my recent convert, Joan, and her 13 son who originally had a date for the 21st. We had a fun interactive lesson at a park by their house and at the end I explained that Edward ( the son) had been taught all of the lessons and could be baptized on Saturday if they wanted. Joan looked at me and said "Pues no tenemos planes por este Sabado" (we don't have plans for this Saturday). And they then accepted to move the date to Saturday the 14th!!! We had to rush to get everything arranged but by the end of the day we had everything set up!

Thursday morning we got a call from our investigator saying that she didn't know if she wanted to get baptized anymore. We were so confused but we passed by later with a member. Her worry was still about her wig!! The member explained that she looked better without the wig and she gave her advice about relaxing and coloring her hair. 

Friday to Saturday we had intercambios and the baptismal interview of Edward... Well his interview was scheduled for Friday but Joan called me an hour before and told me that they were walking into a movie and wouldn't be able to make it....I started frantically coordinating with the district leader and we were able to move the interview to Saturday morning. Saturday morning came around anddddddd HE PASSED! We had a beautiful baptism and many of the youth in the ward participated. It was a great way to end such a crazy week!

Sorry for the novel! I love you guys and I hope you have a great week!!
