Walter and Chad

Well this week Walter got baptized. It was a little difficult because he is actually paralyzed from his leg up to five vertebra. I don't remember how to say that in English so maybe you won’t know what I'm talking about. But we had to carry him into the font in a char and lay him back. We had to baptize him four times because something kept coming up. Yesterday he was confirmed and he received a remarkable blessing as well. So yeah after forty years he is finally a member of the church. He is really glad he is.
We just had changes but my companion and I are staying together. Elder Farias is leaving though. (Another missionary who was living with us.) And an Elder Moritsen is coming to talk his place. He is from the United States but other that that we don't know much about him.
We found another Gringo! But he’s not as promising as Steve. His name is Chad and he has a bunch of tattoos, piercings, and language. But he wants to know about the Gospel so we are going to teach him. Well see how it goes. Oh and he has a tattoo and piercing shop.
So yeah that's about it for this week. Hope that everyone is doing great. Stay close to the spirit. It will guide you.

Elder Whetten

Mom and I saw a guy at the pool the other day with a CTR shield tattooed on his shoulder. Maybe Chad could set Jay up with a sick tat in exchange for a Baptism? ;)
