Also during church, I translated for Juan Pablo ("Diablito Chiquito") during School and Primary. He's SO funny! He's just 10, but he'll talk to adults and kids alike without fear (as it should be) and has the greatest questions! In -school, they were learning about the Atonement of Jesus Christ (La Expiación) and I said the word to him and he says "Like this?" as he pretends to look through binoculars. Yep, learned a new word. "Espiación" = Espionage. After clearing that up and having a good laugh, he LOVED singing the primary songs and thought it was HILARIOUS that in one of the activities we were supposed to sing "like babies"! His boisterous and unhindered laughter reminds me a lot of Mason at times :) It's great! Though I'm hoping someday I'll be able to translate for "big boys"...or at least not struggle with the little ones! Haha, working hard on that!
, we moved two refrigerators in the trailer park...to where the other used to be. Yeah, they just traded similarly sized refrigerators. It was an odd request, but we were able to help a member and a recent investigator! The only thing I will say, is you'd think in the South it'd be easier to find a truck, but we needed the exercise so carrying them worked fine. Also, we fixed an AC unit for one trailer home that was owned by someone you could accurately call a hoarder. It was interesting, but climbing to the back end of the home where the AC was wasn't as difficult as we thought it would be, and we successfully saved the day! Because that wasn't enough, we also met a couple kids (16 and 13) clearing a COMPLETELY overgrown lot; as in vines had punctured the walls of this home by this point and the back yard literally was so thick that we were hacking through it with a machete. That's right, 3 service projects in one day? Booya! And one of them involved a machete, so it was pretty much a reward for doing the other two projects! Turns out they've met with missionaries but moved and want to learn more about the church and their mom is in our English class and had just invited us come visit sometime 3 days earlier! There's no way this work isn't God's! I love it!
Pretty much the rest of the week was similarly awesome but I'm not going to describe everything because I'm pretty much out of time. In short, we've met new people and been able to help and serve them. We have tons of Recent Converts, Less-Actives, and Investigators all progressing toward Christ, and we're busy as can be! Life Rules! Eduardo is stoked for his baptism on the 29th (it'll be a double baptism, because the Sisters have someone being baptized that day as well). The ward is full of people who help all the time (like Sis. Beamish) and we have a whole list of people who speak spanish too and we haven't even been able to use all of them yet!
The church is true. God loves everyone. Love you all!
