Well to start off, on Saturday we had a baptism for our little investigator, Julio Cesar Castro Villa! I had the privilege of baptizing him and man it was such a special day! Over the past couple months I was able to develop a real, sincere love for him and his family and to me this baptism was one of, if not, the most special days I've had out here in the mission. We had to work a lot with his dad to allow him to get baptized because he had a lot of doubts and worries about his son but we were able to help him to accept his son's decision and even help himself to gain a testimony of his own. Julio was so excited as well and I just felt so happy and so much love for them. It was such a great day. We had an after-party over at their place and we were even able to buy him a cake! He really likes Spongebob so we got him a Spongebob one haha. He was confirmed on Sunday and I feel really content with the work I've been able to get done with this family; now if his parents would only get married so they too can get baptized!
Other than that, there was probably only one other really noteable thing that happened. I happen to have a new companion now haha. On Friday the zone leaders called us and told us that my comp was getting transferred to an other area, Pueblitos. Sometimes the mission has things called 'special transfers' and I got a new companion. I was super glad to be getting a new companion to be honest. Elder W is from Honduras and has been out for about 14 months. He's a nice guy, a bit strange but we get along alright because he's chill.
Other than that, everything has been going great. It's been reaaaally hot lately, I'm pretty sure it's gotten above 110 a few times in this past week alone. But we´ve been working hard still and I'm hoping to have a lot of success with my new comp.
Thanks for all of the emails, I love and miss each of you guys!
Con amor, Elder Thayne
