Week 18

     Things in the mission were a little crazy this week. On Tuesday night we got a call for the next transfer on the people who are going to be trainers, District Leaders etc. And Elder Rosero is going to be a District Leader! We don't know where yet but that is so cool! He is such a great missionary and is a really great leader. I'm excited for him. Also Elder Pulsipher is going to be a District Leader! He is another missionary in Alice, there are 4 of us. And then Elder Jensen is going to have a son in the mission! He is going to be a trainer! All three of them went down to McAllen for a day and a half and I had to go up to Robstown for an exchange so I wouldn't be alone. That means I'm getting a new companion this Tuesday! I'm kind of nervous. Also they call the companion after your trainer your breaker. Because you think you know how to be a missionary and he just destroys everything you think you had built up for yourself. So that's exciting XP. 
    On our drive to Robstown we had flash floods! It was super cool and scary at the same time. We had to be there and we had to go through this little town called Agua Dulce (Sweet Water). And there we basically had to drive through a lake, I'm not even kidding. We came to a stop in the road and there was a huge line of cars and some little cars had to turn around. We have a little chevy cruze. And we decided to go for it, and the water at the deepest point came half way up our door. And the current was pushing us to the side a little. It was super crazy and against the rules. We aren't supposed to do anything that could hurt the car, and that could drown the engine. Buttttt we needed to get there so.....We said a prayer first so we should be fine right? 
    Also we had a baptism yesterday! Julio was baptized! We fasted with our zone leaders so that his aunt would let him and she finally gave in after Sacrament meeting! I was praying the whole time for her to feel the Spirit and I guess she did. It was really great, also the other elders had baptisms as well. They found and taught a family and they were super prepared. The dad was a less active from about 20 years ago who joined in the military because our services were 3 hours long. He just wanted to get out of boot camp for longer. And he received the Aaronic Priesthood yesterday and then baptized his whole family. It was awesome! That is the best feeling ever as a missionary. That is what I'm here for :)
    Some of these pictures are from a little while ago, we had a blitz in an area. A blitz is when the whole zone goes into one area that needs some help finding people and we all just knock doors and contact less actives or prior investigators. And behind the church there is a wheat field and we decided to take some senior pictures :P. 
    Super excited for this next week! Hopefully we'll have another baptism! Love you! Have a great week!
