So this week was interesting. So I´ll just start from the beginning and tell how it all went down. Wednesday I woke up with a sore throat, no big deal. We went to our district meeting and always have a little breakfast there and I ate normally. Wednesday afternoon about 5 o clock, the people at the house we were at gave us food, just bread and hot chocolate. I ate a good bit but then my throat really started hurting and I couldnt eat anymore. The guy said it was inflamed. So I bought some medicine but it only got worse. Long story short, I didnt eat anything else on Wednesday, tried to eat lunch on Thursday but almost started crying because it hurt so bad. So we worked a little on Thursday but it was getting worse so we went back home and I slept for 30 minutes and woke up with a fever!! But we had a really important appointment that night so I had to leave the house for a little but the fever past after a couple hours. I couldnt even swallow normally because it hurt so bad so I stayed home Friday and we went to the hospital Friday night. They said I had a throat infection and gave me a perscription for antibiotics. I have been taking them for 3 days and now I am 100% better. I just have to eat a ton to make up for the 4 days that I didnt eat or drink anything!!! Definitely one of the worst sicknesses I have yet had in my life, wouldnt wish it upon anyone!
Our baptism also didnt happen. That night I left the house with a fever was when we went to do her interveiw and the bishop said we should wait till next week. So this Saturday she will be baptized!!
We were really wanting to baptize Irlund this coming Saturday, but he needed to go to church 1 more time. We had a lot of really spiritual lessons with him and he started going to seminary and mutual and loves the church! He just had to go to church on Sunday to be able to be baptized on the 29th. He was excited to go and even in my sick state, we walked to his house Sunday morning to take him to church, his brother answered the door and said Irlund already left to go to church with his friend who is a member. We got all excited and when we got to church he wasnt there... We waited and waited and prayed but he never showed up. I was FURIOUS!! We havent been able to talk to him yet but we were super sad.
THis is the last week of the transfer and I dont know what to expect.
We have started memorizing scriptures and one that I memorized fit in well with my week. D&C 107:99-100. I have a great duty here as a missionary and I must work diligently. Even if I have a throat infection. Christ felt much worse pain but He never stopped in this great work to bring God´s children back to His presence. We must always remember our resposibilities as members of the true church! Nothing is more important than the Lords work!
