A whole lot went on this week and we even had another baptism! His name is Even (it technically should be spelled Evan but that is how they spelled it), and he is 11. He was one of our miracle baptisms for this transfer and the reason why I say that is because he told us straight up that he wanted to be baptized. The service went really well and now he has entered the gates.
We had our dinners this week with the Samoan ward that we cover in our Stake, and one thing that I learned from that is that they have Thanksgiving every single day (No joke). We had 3 dinners last week where it was Elder Tafengatoto, those who signed up for us, and myself and they would have 3-4 different dishes on the table just for that meal.
We have had a lot of snow this past week and I think that it is still falling. It has gotten below freezing and to the point that we have had almost 3 different times where we could have totaled our car, but it’s all good! Elder Tafengatoto and I had our first legitimate death threat on our mission last week where we went to go knock on this guy’s door and he responded by saying: “Do you guys really want to be shot because this is the perfect place to do it”. Then he just told us to go away and never come back. My comp and I were laughing as we walked away though just because of how ridiculous it was.
I don’t have much else to say, but we did have Stake Conference last week and we got a new Stake President. I hope all of y’all continue to take care of yourselves and enjoy this Christmas season! Congratulations Andy on graduating from UT! That is extremely awesome and I know that you will continue to be successful too! If you want me to send you a card for Christmas then email me your address.
Take Care Of Yourselves Everyone!
Elder Theodosis (Charlie)
