Renee Alvarez Baptism
hey hey hey. haha no i didn't break her leg. I had to do it twice because her elbow was up a little bit the first time. I saw it while i was doing it too and i wanted to do a pile drive to get that thing down there. haha its all good though, it was my first baptism I performed and it went really well. The confirmation, i was pretty nervous for though, but I did it fine and everyone in the ward told me that i did a good job. Ha so i feel way bad for Renee though. So on her baptisimal program that spelled her name wrong with only one e RENE. and then on sunday they were like and now we will witness the confirmation of renee alvagado. Her last name is alvarez. Where they got that i have no clue. haha so yeah no one can get her name right. But we have had dinner over at her house twice the last week and their family loves us now. They still aren't way interested but at least they don't think she just joined a cult. Her daughter went to the baptism at least. The mission president was not there but this morning we got a call from him and he said i'm outside. So we were like oh crap what did we do wrong so he came down and said Elder Blomdal I need to talk to you. And apparently his uncle just died yeseterday in a hunting accident. Apparently his cousin was shooting at an elk and his dad stood up right when he shot and shot his dad. That would be so incredibly hard. So yeah today hasn't been to great for my comp. But i'll help him get through it. Anyways, the bike ride wasn't too bad. A lot of it was uphill and my comp has been riding bikes for a while and he had to wait for me for like a minute or two to let me know where to go. But we still beat the record of the fastest time. We had a competition with a family in the 4th ward that are legit. they want me to date their daughter who lives in utah and plays tennis and stuff. haha i've had people try to set me up a couple times. One of their daughters is on the weber tennis team. and she is apparently on a lot of buses and stuff. So derek should go look for a alisha pyne at weber.. UM YES why would i not want grandmas rolls. When you sent cinammon rolls they tasted fine, and her rolls are the bomb diggity. You should have her rethink.
Yeah now that we baptized her we don't have too many promising investigators. There is one family named the fletchers that we are teaching, the daughter is interested but the family i think isn't to interested, they just love us. I will let you know next week if i am getting transfered or not. I hope i leave but i also like my companion here. SO i dunno whatever happens will be for the best. its not up to me. i'll send you some pictures. SO have a good week and i love you. LOVE ELDER GNEHM
