This week was really good. We had a lot of things going on and lots of people who came to us and said they wanted to be baptized. November should be a pretty good month!
We are teaching a soldier again. He is really cool and he came from Bogotá so he could be baptized. We taught him once and he said, ¨When can I be baptized?¨ I think it´s almost too easy here in Pasto... But it really is a blessing to have that. I think that since we work so hard in other cities without so much success, we get to come to Pasto and get recompensed.
So I think I have mentioned in one of my letters that the people from Pasto have a cute little elven-like accent. Well it turns out, for saying that, I have been punished with that very cute little elven-like accent... I don´t know how it happened. I guess when you are trying to fit into the culture, things start to stick... Hopefully, it won´t stick with me too long. It´s cute, but with other peope not me.
The other day, we saw a picture of Santa Claus with his slay and reindeer (they get prepared early down here). My companion asked me if the reindeer really could fly... At first I thought he was joking, but quickly found that he wasn´t. So I took advantage. I couldn´t let this opportunity pass. So I said, ¨Absolutely, it sounds kinda crazy, but they are all over the place in Alaska and Canada and even in the mountains of Utah!¨ I kind of feel bad for lying, but I had to do it! I thought it was funny.
Last week on Monday, we played soccer with the young men in the ward. I am getting better... But I mentioned that these latinos are dead serious about their soccer, right? Well I experienced it first hand. A kid hit me pretty hard and I ended up with a big old cut on my leg. It didn´t hurt too much but its kinda ugly. Then they couldn´t figure out why I didn´t sit out for the rest of the game (soccer players can be pretty wimpy...).
Well, it sounds like everyone is doing well up there. I am always happy to hear from each of you! and sorry if I can´t write back to everyone... I´ll try to be better.
I hope you all have a good week! Love you lots!
