Man, what a crazy week! I can´t believe some of the things that happened this
week! I´ve got a story to tell!
So first off, this past week we´ve been working with a family of 6! It´s been
an adventure with them. We´ve been helping this family for the past week trying
to get ready for baptism and some of the members of the family were having some
doubts. So we did everything we could to try and help them out and make sure
that they were super ready for baptism. Then came saturday. But first these
past 2 weeks people have come and robbed cords from the church that now we
don´t have any energy! So there hasn´t been any energy in the church for a
while. That´s been fun.. haha, but anyways, so we had the fear that there
wouldn´t be any water for the baptism. Well, on saturday we started to fill up
the font. And before it even got to the first step, the water stopped. Me and
my companion freaked out. haha. We didn´t know what to do. So I started to pray
and ask for help to know what to do. Well, it came into my head that I should
get some buckets and start filling up the buckets to fill up the font. I
started using the faucets to fill up the buckets and then the font. And it was
working, but it was taking forever! Eventually it was 5:30 and we had to get to
an appointment we had at 6. So we left and went to the appointment. We went
back to the church at 7. And we opened the door to the font and low and behold,
the font was completely filled! Wow... That was awesome. i really don´t know how
but the Lord definitely placed his hand in helping us. In the end 5 out of 6
Man, it was definitely a week full of work. also, a bird pooped on me -_- haha.
