Still Smiling

February 16, 2009

Braxton was transfered and has a new comp that he really likes. His area is Culturas and his comp is Elder Rangel. Him and Elder Rangel entered the mission the same day. Elder Rangel is 23 years old and likes to work hard. He is from Tampico Mexico (or somewhere near there). Braxton says the work is really different here. There are mostly appartment buildings and it's a lot easier to get lost. It frustrates Braxton and he'll yell and then they just laugh.

They had another baptism this week of a 12 year old girl named Karla. The font was cold because the boiler won't heat that much water. It will heat only 9 liters of water a minute.
(these are pictures of Karla and her family along with Elder Ropelato and Elder Rangel)

Braxton's church is a brand new Stake Center and very big and nice. The chairs on the stand are like theatre style.
Braxton has been a little sick this week. He said it wasn't too bad just a sore throat, headache and cough. It didn't stop them from working.

His house has a washer and dryer. He thinks that is sweet. His bed isn't sweet though. He can feel the springs through it. Oh well, he said it is doable.
