Week 33: Do you speak in languages?

Hey everybody! (refer to the voicemail for this subject. Basically, an arrogant Catholic woman tried to prove to me that she spoke in languages, so I started speaking English with her until I won. Im a missionary, but I still have dignity.)

This week was a bit more difficult for us. Between a division, a conference, and a sickness, we didnt work as much as we usually like to work, so it feels like we didnt get a lot accomplished. But, we still have some success, including the following:

Joelson- Finally, after weeks of working with him (and 7 years of other missionaries working with him, he really was an eternal investigator), Joelson was interviewed, and passed! On wednesday night, we had a pretty intense lesson with him (he said that he didnt have a desire to be baptized, so I just started talking incredibly frankly with him and his wife,) and I dont know what got his attention, but he decided that night that, for the sake of his family, hes going to be baptized! We have to talk about a date with him tonight (possibly Friday or Saturday morning), but its gonna happen! Que bom!

Hilda and Placido- THeyre getting a bit more limp. Hilda has been begging us to talk about why coffee isnt allowed, so we explained the word of wisdom. At first, they were talking about how they didnt have any sort of addiction and could get rid of it easily. But when we asked them to stop drinking coffee, it suddenly became a life-long love for them. But they accepted, and theyll hopefully keep on progressing, even if itll be a slightly longer journey for them.

Other notes:

Yes, I got sick this Saturday. You can listen to the voicemail to hear the pukey details, but basically, I just ate something wrong, and I got rid of everything in my system. After doing emails, Ill go eat lunch, the first real solid food I will have eaten in almost 48 hours. Im getting skinny!

Sorry, not a whole lot to say this week. But this week is General Conference (for you non-Mormons, General Conference happens every 6 months. We get to hear talks given by living-day apostles and prophets. So its a pretty cool deal.)

Alright, love you all! Have a good week!
