I had my first baptism this week! His name is Aldo and he is 75-years-old. He is the best. He will talk your ear right off, but I love him to death. He has been visiting with missionaries before our little branch in Junin even existed, and he finally decided to get baptized. It was a very lovely day.
Today we are in Ramos Mejia in the mission offices again because my companion had to take care of her DNI (ID) for here in Argentina. But funny story... we took the wrong bus... and ended up in the Capital. Luckily that´s only about 40 minutes away from where we needed to be, so our lovely office senior couple came and picked us up. But I have some pretty bad luck with traveling. Before too long president is going to move me back to somewhere close to the offices and keep me there for the rest of the mission!
Speaking of traveling, Hermana De Leon and I had more flat tires this week. Surprise, surprise. But we´re hoping to get our bikes all fixed up this week and hopefully we won´t have any more problems this transfer.
So I included a couple of pictures this week.. the first is of the baptism. The second is of one of a recent convert´s dog. I don´t know his name, but we call him ¨nuestro amigo fiel¨because he follows us everywhere. If we pass by their house, he follows us for hours, running from one end of the city to the other, alongside our bicycles. It´s a little bit ridiculous, but sort of funny.
Other than that, Hermana De Leon and I are working hard. We´re losing a few days of work this week because of all of our travels (we are leaving here today to go to Chivilcoy for a zone conference and then returning to our area Tuesday in the afternoon), but we´ll make up for it.
Love you all and hope you´re well!
