February 2nd, 2014

This week was kind of a trip. We had quite a few lessons that the people were just super confused, and we werent able to explain anything. Haha its kind of funny how awkward that situation. Those lessons are always the ones we happen to not have member with us.

We did have two baptisms this week, two sisters Samantha y sabrina 15 and 8. Its was crazy trying to baptize them. On Friday one of them still needed an interview but their jerk of a stepdad wouldnt let us. So we were worried they wouldnt be able to do it this week. But we found them saturday morning, their stepdad wasnt home and their mom was (she also wants to be baptized but isnt married). We taught them and told them about the baptism process whatnot. They were really excited. So like 3 hours later was their baptism, but there was no water supply to the church. I dont understand that at all. It rains like a meter of water a week and we cant even fill the font. Haha. So we had to move it to the next closest chapel, like 20 minutes away. I still dont know the reasoning for this , but I couldnt go to the baptism, I just went on an exchange with the zone leader. It was pretty sad cause the younger one really wanted me to do it. Buts its all good, theyre baptized.
It got a little more crazier on Sunday, we went to their house in the morning to pick them up for church for their confirmation, and their stepdad opened the door... And basically immediately slammed it. No they cant go theyre sleeping its Sunday. haha so because we didnt want to get shot we didnt knock again. But we asked theyre neigbors who are less active if they could help us out and bring the girls to church. We were just hoping they would but we knew they prolly werent p lanning on coming. So boom with like 5 minutes left in sacrament meeting. They showed up. Haha it was awesome. So that was a lot of work for two ByC´s , but it was fun.
Our two investigators with dates didnt make it to church, and its a new rule here that they have to attend twice before baptism (I know its more in other places). So they have to be pushed back at least another week. But ya were kind of low on investigators right now, but we have one very strong one his names Ronny, the brother of the first week baptism. Hes really chill and smart for 12 and really strong faith.
I hope everyone has a good week this week! 
Love Elder Crisp
