Soccer and Baptismal Goals

So this week was fairly average. Still facing the same struggles to have people go to church and to progress. We might have a baptism this Saturday or next.The guy's name is Edwin. He takes care of 3 teenagers (16, 14, and 12 years old) whose mom lives in Maryland. They were basically living on the streets and didn't have a whole lot in life so Edwin took them in, gives them food, and basically pays for everything because their aunt that is supposed to take care of them doesnt do anything. So we are working with these kids as well so that they can be baptized. They said that they want to, but they said that they want to feel the Spirit in their hearts before they make any big decisions because "Baptism is not a game". They are the most positive and they are super awesome to be around.

Yesterday Edwin had to take care of some business for the kids so we watched after them for 30-60 minutes (not really sure) we went to the park and played soccer we some of their friends. Not trying to brag, but I scored a pretty dang good goal (and from distance) one of the boys there that was on the other team, high fived me and said "Respecto hermano, Respecto." (Respect brother, respect). Yeah it felt good. This week there is an activity with the whole mission and all of the investigatores and EVERYONE at the Temple. So that will be pretty dope to head over to the captial. We´re hoping that a lot of people turn out to it and help us out there. So there's that.

Go kill it this week.

P.S. My resume now includes mango picker. (I now have coconut and mango)

Pics with Pres and his wife, the best $1.50 I have ever spent on this lego and the other soldier guy, and my amazingly ugly tie. $2 I love that everything is so cheap and amazing here. If anyone was curious how my feet are doing, well the ants are having a good time. They like to eat while I am washing my clothes... Yeah I have to wash all of my clothes by hand... :(
