I had my interview with President. Here are the highlights. 1. He said that I need to go on 30 dates, with 30 different chicks before I start steady dating. 2. That I should search for a job that the Lord would have me have, not that I myself should choose without his help (idk if I explained that well, but he had a point) 3. He said that he really admired the fact that I never quit. I thought that was nice =).
And, I have a scripture for you: 3 John 1:13-14.
We had a lunch together as a zone today. The ZL’s asked a waitress to take a picture of us afterwards. While the lady was taking a picture of us, I took a picture of her taking the picture of us while everyone was looking away… man, I’m so funny.
Paniagua came to visit Calvario this week! I got to talk to him for a bit this week.
Another interesting note, I took the bomb!! These 4 little pills had to be taken all at once, and once I did my guts started boiling, and bit by bit have been clearing me of all of the friends I have unwantedly acquired in my 2 years.
Here is another goodbye party that we had with our mission leader. A great guy. They made a cake and everything. Ima miss these folks.
Ugh… just one more of these wretched p-days. I have finally admitted, Mom. I am going home.
I am doing great though! We baptized!! My last baptism… It was an awesome experience.
He is 18 years old. He just naturally accepted everything we taught him, as if he had learned it from the pre-mortal life, and it had a familiar ring to him in this life. The other guy in the photo was the member friend who helped us. I got to baptize him. DAAA!!! Last time I will be dressed in white with a plaque on.
Here is a photo of when Elder Clarke was here.
P.S. I am at the right hand side
P.P.S. I am the tallest in the mission right now =)
P.P.P.S. uh… this is only half of the mission though. They had another conference in Huehue before I got here.
In other good news… I had a surprise party for when I had my 2 year birthday! Elder Rodriguez and the other Elders secretly planned a Taco dinner for me in the house of a member on the 30th to celebrate. This member is the richest one in the area, so the tacos were actually really good. I have a good companion, and I share an area with some great guys. They also made me a wallet out of a Doritos bag as a gift. Cool beans.
Dear Barbara, I have 1 week left. I can’t believe it. There is nothing else to do except work hard while I am at it. I love you, and I’ll see you soon.
Elder Rodriguez is awesome… He is easily my favorite Latino comp. These 6 months I have been blessed with really great comps, thank goodness. Here we are after literally (whats that thing called where you scale down a cliff side with rope? I’ll call it scallooping) scallooping down a huge cliff to get to an appointment, and we found a bridge and a river and took pictures. I am ending my mission happy, and diligent. I have 2 weeks left pretty much… I’ll see you in no time. =)
[A note from Cheryl by way of explanation: Elder Paniagua (Aaron’s first companion in Guatemala) has been home a while now, having served his two years and finished. This feels like a tender mercy that he would let us all know about this. Just take a look at the caption.]
Hey!! A fun little update… Paniagua saw my first convert Josue last week as a missionary! Josue is serving in Honduras right next to where Paniagua is… here is a photo he sent.
