I´m so happy that I won´t have to hear any more questions about the end of the world. My whole time in Bolivia, people have been asking us what the church says about the whole Mayan end of the world thing. The number and frequency continued to escalate until it reached a maximum of about 80% of the people would ask us about this on the 20th and 21st.
In other news, our baptism this Saturday ended up not happening because the Dragon´s uncle came Thursday night and dragged an unhappy Dragon to Santa Cruz to live and work there for a couple of years. Dragon didn´t want to go, but he apparently didn´t have much of a choice. All that we can do now is give his address to the missionaries where he is so that they can baptize him.
We should be having a different baptism, however, this coming Saturday. Eber Choque (the one person who actually listened to our invitation to go to the church when all we did was talk to him on his doorstep) now has received basically all of the lessons, has a strong testimony, and has gone to church 3 times. Assuming that nothing crazy happens between now and Saturday, he will be getting baptized this Saturday.
For Christmas we will be doing nothing special other than calling our families, but I am looking forward to that call.
I want to wish you all a Merry Christmas and
Until next time..
