Well this week was... rather strange. I wasn't sure if I was going to have changes or not, so I was telling people it was possible that I wouldn't be there for the next appointment. There were a few investigators that I just didn't even bother telling, but for our more promising investigators (like 3 people), I let them know. We're actually taking care of some new missionaries tonight because of the changes and such, and we have the best new missionary prank EVER planned. First, we're going to pick up a member (one of the young men) and tell the new missionaries we're going to visit a reference he gave us. Then we're going to head out towards the Camacho family. On the way there, one of the other young men will be pretending to be texting or something on his cell phone, and we'll tell one of the new missionaries to contact him. We'll tell him that we're actually headed to a lesson right now if he wants to join us, and he'll say yes.
When we enter the home of the Camacho family, they're going to pretend to be investigators (they're going to take down their pictures of the temple and such for the night and everything), and we're going to start a lesson. In the lesson, we'll proceed to give them every single invitation that we have as missionaries in very rapid succession, and they're going to say yes to every single one. We even talked to Hermano Camacho, and he's going to say that he had a dream where he "saw a pilar of light," and you know the rest. It's going to be the BEST!!! I'm sure the new missionaries will realize rather quickly that it's not a real lesson, but we'll see how it goes. They're new, so I'm hoping they won't know the difference. It's a little mean, but we're gonna have so much fun with it. Then afterwards, we're going to have a big Family Home Evening with them... because I have changes.
Yes, for the first time in my six months here in the mission field, I have changes. I have no idea where I'll be going or what's going to happen, but I'm super excited to find out tomorrow in the changes meeting. I'm also super nervous to find out... In my entire mission, I've only known Valle Dorado and the members/investigators here. Now I'm off to an entirely different world in who-knows-where to find completely new people to teach and baptize. Super crazy stuff going down in these next few days, but as the classic hymn says, "I'll go where you want me to go, dear Lord." And that's exactly what I plan to do. I'll write next week on where I am, what I'm doing, and how the prank went.
