But, I had to get myself back to T.H.E Mission. It was a spontaneous kind of trip. I think Daniela's ways of making travel plans in an 11th hour kind of fashion is really starting to rub off on me. Mostly, I went down for Dionicio's baptism.
If you remember, I was transferred to Lake Charles, LA the last three months of my mission and switched to serve English speaking. While I may have been called to speak English, I actually ended up teaching a good amount of Spanish-speaking lessons.
The Lord's hand is in all things.
The baptism was wonderful, it actually turned out to be quite the bilingual baptism because the daughter of a semi Spanish speaking family in the ward also was baptized. I felt like I had never left. & I'm so grateful that I was able to return sooner rather than later.
While in Lake Charles I HAD to make a stop at Tony's Pizza with Melissa (<3). Kind of embarrassing, but the workers definitely recognized me. Guess that goes to show how much my companions & I enjoyed it there.
^^Showed my mother around town stopping at all the cutest little shops in the area.^^
^^added my own entry on the local, "Before I die I want to..." wall.
^^Tried to fill up that empty place in my stomach that had been missing bluebell!
^^Went to Melissa's softball game. They ended with a home run!
Sunday & Monday were spent in lovely Pasadena & Baytown texas. I left little pieces of my soul in those places.
Oh & if you thought my awkward missionary photo days were over...
Let's do this again soon Tejas/Louisiana♥!
