Cookie Theif Strikes in Mexico
Here's what Elder Guthrie has been up to this week....enjoy
Well, a pretty boring week in ole Mexico, not much has happened if you ask me. We went to Guanajuato for a baptism and we ended up not having enough baptismal clothes. Since it was a baptism for the other elders, I volunteered to give my shirt to Elder Mouritsen so he could see the baptism (he gave his shirt to be worn by the person being baptized). My nametag was being used to hold up the pants of the guy because the pants were too big. I just felt a little used if you ask me!
We had to leave to Guanajuato at six, I have to admit it is REALLY cool there. You’re just riding along looking up the mountains, I went on a division with Elder Buxton about a block away and it took nearly 30 minutes to get there! It’s like walking up a mountain to get to the next house. The roof of one house it level to the basement of their neighbors. When we got back I just waited until the baptism was done in the bathroom reading La Cosecha (Mission News). We were supposed to baptize two kids this week but they never showed up. To make matters worse, out of the 15 people that were supposed to go to the church with us, only 2 DID.
Changes are in a week, but we had an interview with Pres. Cox this week. In the interview he told my companion to start letting me make decisions and such, because after this next change, he is going to promote me. Not sure what more crazy ideas he has in his head. But, supuestamente ill be sinior comp after this next upcoming change. I’ll try my hardest to talk him out of it: Maybe walk on his grass, pee on the outside of his house, steal his cookies.......oh, yeah, I already did that! We were all at his house for interveiws, 2 zones (about 40 or mas) and Elder Mouritsen goes "Let’s go steal some cookies" (the assistants were in there making cookies for the interviews). So we were in there joking and eating cookies, Mourithammer already ate like three, so I decided "one can’t hurt". About the time I took the first bite Sis. Cox walks in, and I’m the only one with a cookie in my hand at the time...........and so forth. When we were walking out of the kitchen Mouritshite starts stuffing himself with the 5 or six cookies he stole from the kitchen......and that’s the story of how I’m the worst cookie thief in the mission!
We have a possibility of 8 baptisms this upcoming week, 10 baptisms gets you cookies anyway, so I’ll just give one back and we´ll be even.
That’s about all the cool stuff that happened this week......Sorry for not sending more pics this week.
Until next week.......PEACE
