Crazy Week!!!!

Well, This week was incredibly crazy. It started out with my zone leader (Elder George) getting super sick and having to be rushed to the emergency room and ended with a baptism and a trip to the temple...

First things first, Elder George is my Zone Leader and he got rushed to the Emergency room. He started to lose his vision after a few days of the flu and they decided that was not a good sign. they took him there and he was there for about 3 days. Long story short, they thought it was viral, then bacterial, then back to viral meningitis, then ruled it out completely. Yesterday they moved him to a hospital at UCLA. They still don't know what is wrong, his parents are here and they have been for about a week. It was suuuuper scary and was really hard for me this week. I never knew how much I loved my obnoxious elders until they get sick and almost die!! (But really...)

That kinda threw the whole week off... and made it hard to concentrate on the work and stuff. Lots of other emotional things happened too... but that's besides the point!

But then we had a BAPTISM on Saturday!!! Yeah!!! Little Monique Obando! She is our 9 year old little ray of sunshine that we have been teaching. She cracks me uppp!!!! haha I love her!

There are some people I have met that I know God intended for me to meet and she is one of them. Along with her 13 year old sister Mia and her 5 year old sister Mariah. Those girls have some crazy bright futures and I fully intend on making sure they reach their full potential in life. (Facebook for liiiiife! :)

But of course sticking to the theme of the week, the baptism couldnt just go smoothly... no that would make too much sense.

So there was a car fire before. Sister Lindsey and I had to go outside to get something and we notice that a VAN WAS ON FIRE!!!!!!!!! WHAT THE...... So we did what any logical person would do and we ran inside and yelled, "SOMEONE'S CAR IS ON FIRE!!!!!!" haha....

So we ran in to grab our phone and call 911 and we told the elders that someones car was on fire. Elder Bengtzen was in the process of filling up the baptismal font with no shoes and didn't want to miss anything so he hurried out of the font and ran outside with a fire extinguisher with no shoes.... and starts to put out the fire. Well it didn't work and the fire department had to come and finish putting it out! It was CRAZY!!! The elders are just being elders and taking pictures and videos of the whole thing. Ugh! It was nuts! But I got to check "call 911" off my bucket list so that was a thrill!! :) haha

But then this morning we went to the temple... and the temple is ALWAYS amazing. God knows how to solve everyone's problems. We couldn't have been assigned to a better week to attend the temple. The whole zone just REALLY needed it. IN the picture below is

Elder Brock, Elder Begtzen, Elder Schooff, Sister Bauer, Sister Lindsey.

We have kinda been together a lot this week because of everything that has happened, but I couldn't imagine any better missionaries to experience the craziness with. Elder Schooff and Elder Brock are Elder Begtzen's temporary companions right now. Elder Schooff is our District Leader and he is THE BOMMMBBB!!! .com :)

Me and Sis Lindsey at the temple.

Also, something else cool that happened. CA has been having a SUPER bad drought. So on Sunday they had a state wide fast for rain... and guess what? Sunday night it poured!!!!

The church is so true it's ridiculous!!!

I love you all!!! Have a fantastic week.... I will try!!!! Pray for Elder George.

Much love!

Love, Your Favorite Missionary Girl!

Sister Bauer
