Today feels like its gonna be a great daaaaaaaay!

Hi

This week rocked. We got 2 baptisms last week, and 2 more this week. But I learned that my favorite part about teaching someone that gets baptized is that you have to fill out baptismal information. There is a sheet that you have to fill out and you need all sorts of information and stuff. And the other best part is that Cambodia is not really the best place for keeping records of things. So it gets really confusing. So we asked our guy when his wife was born. And he looks at his records, his eyes get all wide, and then he runs his hands through his hair, looks up at us, gives a nervous little giggle, and says "whelp, she was born in 2000" and looks back down. HE DIDN'T KNOW THAT HIS WIFE WAS ONLY 15!!!!! But then we were like, there is no way and checked again and he was looking at the wrong records. She is really 22. But Cambodian people are so good at going with the flow, that if they find out their wife is only 15 years old, they don't sweat. They just go with it and laugh it off. 

All of our peeps that got baptized gave us referrals for their friends and family that need to learn about the church. So now we's gots more peeps to teach. 

Also someones bike got a flat tire, so we chained it to a bamboo and trudged on, sharing bikes. We decided we would come back for it. We came back for it, and some one had cut the bamboo tree and stole the bike L O L. Didn't see that one coming. 

I've got nothing else people. If there is anything you are wondering about me, go ahead and email me and ask and I will write about it next week.
