Dear Family and Friends,
The main highlight of this week has been the rain. Lots and lots and lots of rain. It’s been SO NICE! It’s not hot, and almost always cloudy! The only downer has been the mud, but even then it’s not that bad! Actually, it’s really deep in some places but I was in Austral, so in comparison it’s not even muddy:)
Besides that it was a fairly uneventful week. A lot more relaxing than last week with the baptism. We visited Carlos several times this week and it’s amazing to see the difference that the Holy Ghost plays in someones life! I’m not even kidding! He was progressing slowly beforehand, but the improvement is much faster now!
Oh yeah, and yesterday we were talking with an evangelical and he was a really good guy with some really strange ideas. I honestly really respect his faith, like really respect it. There are very few members of the Church that have as much faith as he does. But he’s got some weird ideas, like how before Jesus’ ministery he hung out with the crowds that went to dances and got drunk and everything but just didn’t participate. And then he was trying to interpret the signs of the times, and he had the right idea but wrong application. He said that in the Bible it says that the days were going to start to get shorter, which is true (I think) but then his evidence was completely off! He said that in January, the sun was going down at 10:15, but now at 9:15 is already gone, and how before the sun came up at 5:00, but now it doesn’t come up until 6:15, and that’s evidence that the days are getting shorter. I didn’t have the heart to tell him that that’s completely normal, that it happens every year, and it’s evidence of the tilt of the earth on its axis. But he had the right idea, just the wrong application!
Oh yeah, GO BRONCOS!!!!!!!!! 24-10!!!!!!!!!!!! SUPERBOWL 50 IS OURS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
