Week 29

Man I have a ton of pics to send you. We had a baptism and since I haven't received the package with the SD card, I went ahead and bought my own. This past week was crazy, we were busy like non stop. And unfortunately, cuz time was so tight and just out of roder, Danielson wasn't baptized :/ I was super bummed out. But Izagi did get dunked.
So his name is actually spelled Hinzaguy but it's a lot easier to write and say iZagi. From Monday to Saturday morning he was in FSY, a huge youth activity here and over 200 youth were there. It literally changed his life. He came back with a very strong testimony of the gospel and even in love haha. He found a girl from Sao Vicente and apparently wants to marry her now haha. (which is super good since Cabo Verdeans have no desire to get married whatsoever) As soon as he got home, we went to look for him since he still needed his baptismal interview and the services were going to start at 10AM. So since our Zone Leaders are in Sao Vicente, the interview was through the phone. We left him alone in the room, and 20 minutes later he called my name and we heard something was up with his voice, so we hurried in and he was crying super hard. I got on the phone to talk to Elder Montes to see what happened and he said that everything was good, that he is ready and was just super emotional. There was something different about this guy. Elder Burch and I both felt it. He got up and hugged us and cried on our shoulders and said thank you for showing me this path and stuff like that. I felt a super strong love for him, like different than I've felt for other people here. I honestly feel like he was my friend even before this life, and that it was part of my mission to come here and find him. He's such a boss and he wants to serve a mission.

These are just a few pics of the baptism site. It was a different pool this time. This one was way deeper, the water was like to my armpits, but we didn't get in this time. We figured we could be witnesses from the outside.

So we actually had to go to FSY during the week and teach him tithing since we weren't gonna have time to teach him when he got back. Man, I felt like a Senior in high school again haha. Elder Burch and I were like rockstars, all the youth that we have already met in Sao Vicente came up to us and said hi and stuff, I didn't realize I had met so many people. And these are a few pics I took with Americo, our ward mission leader. He's like my best friend out here haha. 

You hold your hand like this, then put it on your forehead like this, then you scream "Woooooooh, Lamanites!!!" Haha during soccer, we would always play Nephites against Lamanites and I was a Lamanite (you know, cuz I'm mexican). And it's super funny watching Cabo Verdean's do it. 

Idk who made it up, it was before I got here haha.
