Not much happened this week either. Last Saturday though we had one of the best ward activities I have seen here in Guatemala for Father’s Day. They had a lot of little activities, a slide show of the Fathers and their families, presentations from the youth, a mariachi band, and a dinner. It was actually a lot of fun. Thursday President took us out to all you can eat ribs again at Tony Roma´s which was awesome and today we are planning to have three baptisms at 7.
We got our zone shirts and they turned out really well. The other family we were teaching (of 6 people) will be leaving this week to go to Jalapa (outside the capital but still in our mission) as the dad got transferred for work so all of those baptisms we were planning will no longer happen. It felt like a break up when they told us and is extremely disappointing. Probably the worst news we received all week. Things are going good though and I am extremely happy for the baptisms we will have today. I am healthy, the Spanish is coming along and things are great!
Yesterday I also had to talk with a landlord who wanted us to pay for her water bill. We explained we were not going to pay for water that the Elders there did not use and she freaked out. She started insulting me, calling me names, threatening to kick the elders out, call the cops, vandalize church buildings, tell everyone how bad the "Mormons" are, telling me how much shame it would bring upon me, my family and the missionaries living there. With every threat I just kinda said ok do it, we are not paying for your water bill and the missionaries will not leave until June 30- because we have paid to rent the house until the end of the month. Me not showing interest in her threats just made here even more mad. It was a very long and stressful phone call. As of now she has not done any of the things she said she was going to do, but the missionaries there are looking for a new house and they are a little worried that she will break into their house and steal something from them or change the locks when they are gone, it is a big mess. Just one of the many things I have to deal with here in the office. Any time there is any problem with missionaries and money, bills, houses, landlords, etc. just people complaining wanting more money.
Having the best day of his life,
