Wow this week was crazy! Let me start with The baptism of Cesar Chiroque! He is twelve and we have been teaching him and his family for a long time. His baptism went well. Elder Saavedra baptized him. It was his mom and his sister and cousin and his two other little sisters. His older sister and cousin Romely and Jennifer want to get baptized this upcoming week after seeing Cesar do it. They said before that there was something missing and they weren’t quite sure what it was. I guess it was just the example of their younger brother:)
Ok, so that was awesome but after that we went back to the room and sat and waited for the transfer call. I was pretty sure that I was gonna go because president told me I would have a new comp this change but I wasn’t sure if I would be leaving or elder S. It’s me. Today I’ll be leaving for another area. I’m sad but it’ll be good to have a change. My zone leader told me I’m going to Mala. Not sure where that is but I guess I’ll find out. I’ll let you know more about that Friday cause right now I don’t know more haha.
So something crazy happened last night. We went to the home of Family Chiroque and there had been some kind of fight or argument. There was a broken beer bottle on the ground and Romely and Jennifer were crying. We still don’t know what happened for sure but we asked them if they would like blessings. I started with the mom Hermana Aurora. When I was about to end the blessing I felt super dizzy like I was going to fall over. When I said amen I felt fine. I don’t know if it was because I had my knees locked or something but it was a really weird feeling. But the weird part was when I finished the sister of Hermana Aurora was bent over in her seat with a look of pain on her face. She was holding her stomach then said I don’t feel good. Then she passed out right off her chair onto the floor. Luckily she didn’t hit her head or anything but it kinda freaked me out a little. We got her back into her chair and tried to get her to wake up. After a while we got her back awake. We gave her a blessing too. Then Romely then Cesar, Jennifer had left. I shook all of their hands then when I shook the hand of Hermana Petronela, the sister of Aurora, she held it for what must have been fifteen seconds and just stared right into my eyes. She had a small smile on her face and teary eyes. But her expression was very strange. I don’t know, it was a very strange night. During the blessings that i gave to Aurora and Romely the only thing that I could really think of to say was that everything would be ok and that Heavenly Father loves them. Hermana Aurora just thanked me over and over for teaching her and her family. It was a very good but slightly strange experience.
So Not too much has happened else. I’m going to leave here in a while to find out what I need to do for my transfer. I’ll call the house and then mom and then dad in that order. I think that I’ll call Christmas Eve. We have P-day that day. Here Christmas is different. It’s a huge party that starts about 5 in the afternoon on the 24th till about 6 in the morning on the 25th. It’s pretty dangerous to be in the street cause there is lots of drinking. We will be doing something away from all the people. Thanks family for being awesome! I love you so much! I’ll call you Thursday night! Love you muchos!
Love Elder Bearnson
