Aaron: hi, no baptism is Friday in the morning. haha.. postponed like 5 times.
Mom: gunna have to leave in like 30 or so minutes to take Jarom & Kara to the airport - but I will have dad drive so I can type to you :)
What did you do today?? You are emailing so late today - did you go do something fun?? Tell me about the waterfall - you never told me about that trip - how was that? Pictures??
Aaron: Just because we couldn´t find a place to do it. I´ll start putting on photos. Today we went to a river! =) didn't go in obviously, but it rained afterwards and we got soaked. so it was like the same effect.
Mom: "but I say a prepare to have more energy and we go to work." Do you mean you say a prayer to have more energy?? Just making sure I understand what you are saying :)
that seems crazy to me that you can't find a place to do it - is that because the church is being worked on? where did the sisters have their baptism that they had?
Aaron: YES PRAYER=P ENGLISH IS HARD
Yeah.. they did their baptisms with gringo members who had a pool.. the ones who are visiting.. but they moved.. and now they don't have a pool
Mom: jajaja I figured as much :p
Mom: that seems weird that there is NO place to do the baptism - what about a river or lake? or could you go to another area to do the baptism? Where are you planning to do it this Friday at??
ok - no problem - tell me about the waterfall trip - how was that?
Aaron: They say that the rivers are dirty.. lakes not really.. but the rivers that are clean are a little far away apparently. The bishops trying to see if he can use a pool here if not we´re going to Paraiso, the next closest chapel.
The waterfall trip was cool, I love feeling the mist of it hitting you, it´s up in the mountains too but not too far away. It was nice idk haha. The river trip too, Randal the member who rents his apartment to us, drove us there because he has this week off for Holy Week, so he jumped into the river and everything, but we just skipped rocks and stuff. And then we took tons of photos.
Mom: cool!! We have to leave now so I will type to you on my phone!!
Aaron: ok mom
Mom: Hey I'm back!!
So tell me about your week and how things are going with your comp?
How far away then is that next building?? Have you been there??
Aaron: it´s been going okay, we doing good.. changes are next week. The next building is like an hour 15 from here in bus. Yeah i´ve gone. for district meetings
Mom: So do you think you will have changes? Like your comp was already there so do you think he might transfer?
|not sure the story here - but better not be a pet! haha|
Aaron: No i don't think i´ll have changes, I kind of feel like I´ll finish my mission here, but who knows.
Mom: Ya I was hopeful you would train a couple of times - once here and then another area but who knows
Do you have interactions with president much?? When was your zone meeting?
Aaron: zone meeting should be tomorrow i think. I talk with him by message email each week not much other than that
Mom: Where do you go for the zone meeting? Cartago?
Aaron: yeh cartago. =) it´s like 2 hours from here.
Mom: Holy cow that's a long bus ride - what time will you have to leave to go? And how much will it cost you??
Did you pick up your soccer shoes?
Aaron: Gotta go mom! I love you a lot, have a good week! I think we´ll have to leave like 10 o'clock or so. It starts at 1 the meeting. I got soccer shoes yah! I think the photos will be uploaded.. they´re kind of small but meh. They wer 40 bucks :O And then the guy who has the soccer fields showed me some that fit me haha for 20 bucks he told me he´d give em and he bought them for 40, but I was like idk because I JUST FETCHING BOUGHT SHOES =P but we´ll see.
