Week 23 January 16, 2017

Hey guys! This was a crazy week. Ok so this is what happened.
Thursday we had district meeting and the AP's came to our district
meeting unexpectedly. We were all surprised but didn't think much of
it. After district meeting they told my companion he was getting
emergency transferred to East LA. We hurried back and he packed half
his stuff. He planned on only taking half of his stuff that day on
Thursday because he'll be able to come back on Friday for Chica's
Well while he was packing we got a text from Chica saying that even
though she appreciates everything we did for her, she would have to
cancel the baptism because it wasn't going to work for her at the
time.  We called and texted her and got nothing in response. We
panicked and called a ward member that loves to go out on lessons with
us. We told him the situation and he agreed to come out and go on
splits. We dropped off the other Elders at a referrals house and then
we went over to Chicas house.
The entire time since we got that message I thought about what and how
I was going to talk to Chica to figure out what was wrong. I walked up
to the door and she answered. We said hi and she said she was in the
middle of dinner and to call her THEN SHE WALKED AWAY AND SHUT THE
DOOR. I thought I blew it. I didn't think she was going to answer our
phone call because she didn't before so I thought we just lost her. I
decided to have the member take us around to some
referrals because we had a car.

While I was directing him to the house a car got T-boned right in
front of us and they both bounced and spun off each other and ended up
on the other side of the street. We got out and helped everything then the
member I was with had to fill out witness reports because he's the one
that actually saw the impact of the two cars.
While we were waiting on the curb our member Brother Larsen got a text
from the other Missionaries and they actually called Chica and she
answered the phone and were able to talk to her and talk about
everything that was going on. Apparently her sister takes care of her
rent and once she heard that her sister was gonna get baptized in our
Church she wasn't having it and wouldn't let Chica.

Ok the next day we met with Chica and she said that she was ready to
go through with the baptism and that she'd talk to her sister. We
had to tell everyone the day of that the baptism was back on. We
called everyone and got the whole baptism planned out. It was awesome.
Then she sent us another text saying that the baptism wasn't going to
happen. We had to cancel everything. We had a lesson with her and some
members and we had a lesson with Chica once again. She wants to be
baptized so bad but every time she talks to her sister she just can't
It's so sad. She seems determined to be baptized
this Saturday, but we'll see what happens with her and her sister.
We had Stake Conference and we heard an Area seventy talk and he met
Chica and she was really happy after she met him and heard what he had to say
to her. I found Chris at Stake Conference and it turns out he did get
baptized! I got a picture with him. Well that's all that happened this
