The Chipotle Miracle!
Week 82- 80 week in Phoenix Mission- 32 weeks in Glendale
Dear friends and family,
We had a pretty normal week! Sorry if this email is super lame. But I'll do my best to make it great! Here goes.
Baptisms The French Sisters had two baptisms on Saturday! Two more of the Mwanamulenda family were baptized. So far the four of them have been baptized and there are more to come. They are truly an amazing family. The two who were baptized, Christine and Macinda, are 12 and 10. They only speak Swahili!! As if there wasn't a big enough language barrier with French! The ward is doing well with accommodating their needs, though. Raphaël, the first to be baptized, was just called as the French gospel principles teacher. I see a French branch coming really soon. I am so grateful to be a part of this incredible miracle. The gospel will be preached to everyone; the Lord's promise is being fulfilled here in the Black Canyon Ward.
Chipotle Miracle So I know this is a really lame thing to put in my email, but it was pretty funny how it happened. Two days ago we got a coupon in the mail for a free burrito from Chipotle. We were figuring out who would get it since there are five of us in the apartment. Elder Plourde won the coupon after we drew names out of a hat, so we headed out. We saw another coupon on the ground, and two more on the top of the trash!! So that left one person not having a coupon. Elder Young volunteered to pay for his, so we were in line getting our burritos and a guy from the back of the line comes up and says, "I'm paying for all five of these guys." Just a tender mercy!! Such a nice guy.
Doctor I went to urgent care again this week because I have had the same cough for about 3 months. When I told the doctor how long I had the cough, she looks at me and says, "Don't you think that's a little long??" I told her that the last urgent care said I was fine. She said that was stupid and she put her stethoscope to my lungs and told me to cough. She said, "OH YEAH, you're sick" and she prescribed me antibiotics. I guess I had bronchitis after all! So I'm feeling a lot better now. The cough has almost stopped. Woohoo!
Investigators Our investigators are all still doing well. Not much to report on them. Mike and Cindy got new jobs paying double what they were making before, which is great for them since they've been struggling a little bit! He said the Lord is blessing them more than they can comprehend. I hope Cindy will notice those blessings and become even more interested in the Church.
Weather: The weather has cooled down a little bit. Every day has been the upper 70's and sunny. Yep, we're spoiled. Not for long, though!
Moving So we get to move tomorrow! I'm so excited to get out of this apartment! This new one is so much better. I can't wait.
Well, that was my week. We have a ton of meetings/trainings/other stuff going on next week so it should be jam packed with cool stuff!! Have a great week, everyone!
