What a CRAZY week!!! Obviously, we spent basically the whole week getting us and everyone else ready for general conference (which was awesome, from the sessions i was able to watch). Everything looked like it would work out perfectly. An investigator was going to let us use her laptop, and the people who live next door to the church were going to let us use their wifi, so everyone could come to the church to watch it. Perfect. What could go wrong, right? Welllll, Friday night, a HUGE storm came in. And i mean HUUUGE! I've never seen so much rain at once! We saw that the sky was turning pitch black, so we went to a members house that was close by to hide out from the storm. At about 8:30, we had to head for home. But, we walked outside, and the street (in that part of saladillo all the streets are dirt) was a RIVER. We almost literally had to swim to get out of there. And the power got knocked out, so it was pitch black and pouring rain. At some points the water was up to my waist!!! And towards the center of town, ALL the streets were completely flooded with a foot or more of water. I've never seen anything like it before. A bunch of people were even evacuated from their homes. Anyyyywayys, the point of the story is: the next morning when we went to connect to the wifi, we realized that the Internet service was down. And, upon making a few more calls, we realized that almost no one in saladillo had Internet. So, we didn't get to watch the first session. In the evening we got to see it because we all went to the house of someone who somehow had Internet, and Sunday the Internet worked just fine, thankfully. so, yeah. It's been a crazy week. Today, officially, I am what's called a "pastor," which is a missionary who's in his last transfer. My last six weeks. Its a really strange feeling. i just hope ill be able to make the most of it. We're going to rocky point??? YEAH!!! Lets go!!!! I'll be able to translate for everyone!!!!! =D  (I'm mostly just excited to be able to use my Spanish hahaha) And that sounds like a good plan for my arrival home. Well, have a good week! I love you all!
