Guys this week was one of the best yet on the mission!! Pedro Salazar went down baby woo! The whole day was so amazing 🙂 The member that picked him up brought him one of his old church outfits and a white shirt and tie and just seeing him walk out in that seriously made me wanna cry. You have to know that Pedro has literally nothing. He’s been in foster care his whole life and just barely aged out and the only place he had to go was with his cousin and her family that live in seriously the saddest little shack. But when he received those clothes you guys should’ve seen how happy it made him 🙂 Our ward has just embraced Pedro and people pick him up for church, for institute, activities, firesides EVERYTHING. He loves having this new ward family and I know it’s gonna change his life forever. I wish there was more I could do for him because he deserves so much better in life. But I know that he’ll have the holy ghost and he will be guided throughout life on how to have a brighter future. I wish you guys could all meet him so bad he’s seriously amazing!
The baptism was so great too. We had 2 of our other amazing investigators there and they both told us after how much they wanted that for themselves. It was so spiritual and the work here is really just going so great. I sung for it and it was the first time I’ve ever sung in front of people so I was pretty scared but it went okay! Our whole ward was there supporting and I seriously could spend my whole mission in this ward with the people i’m teaching and be happy. I LOVE BROWNSVILLE!!
So funny story was that same morning we were going around helping people remind them about church and we went to one of our investigator’s house and started knocking on the door. Well this huge gust of wind went through and blew the gate open and their dogs just start booking it all the way down the street. Me and sister black are freaking out trying to chase them all over the neighborhood for about 20 mins cuz we were so scared we had lost our investigators dogs and they wouldn’t talk to us ever again haha. But it’s all good, we finally solved the problem! Afer all that the couple didn’t come to church lol… But it’s all good we’ll get em next week 🙂
We found some awesome people to start teaching this week and I seriously love just being a missionary. There’s nothing better 🙂 anyone trying to decide if they should go or not… GO!! You’ll never have a happier and better experience in your life. Love you all have a great week!
GUESS WHAT!!! You know the family that me and sister valdez reactivated back in la joya?! Well they’re getting ready to go to the temple in the next couple weeks and me and valdeezy got invited!!! SOO excited 🙂 it’s gonna be so awesome and literally if I did nothing else on my mission except that it would all be worth it
