10/12 Flaming Shower Heads

Well, I will just start with what the title suggests-- our shower head CAUGHT ON FIRE this week. Twice. The shower heads here are electric powered to heat the water. The switch that turns it on broke, and my comp worked as an electrician before his mission, so he said it was an easy fix and jerry-rigged the wires and everything was working fine. Then, the next morning, I showered with hot water (the first time in a few weeks--glorious) and then my comp was about to go in to shower and was like, "hey, did it work?" and I was like, "yeah, watch!" and then i turned it on and the shower head burst into flames. We tried fixing it again, turned it on, and boom, more fire. So... a flaming shower head.. not something I ever thought i would see haha. 
This was a pretty good week! We kind of lost contact with Kevin, but were able to get ahold of him and have an appointment to teach him this week. We have another investigator that we have been teaching for a while now, named Alvaro (he is 17). He is super cool, and this week he finally received his answer that he needs to be baptized. So he has a baptism date for the 24th of this month. Pray for him! We have another investigator named Vanessa, and she is living with her less-active boyfriend, Joseph. They have a 4 year old son also. Joseph´s mom is in the relief society presidency, so we have been working super hard with them so they can get married and baptized. I went on spilts with Elder Wagner this week (awesome) and we taught them this super powerful lesson on the Atonement and called them to repentance and they finally agreed that they need to be married. Hopefully we´ll see some good progress now. 
Other than that, we had a pretty normal week. I love being the district leader again. Much more fulfilling work. The only sad part is that I cant go to the leadership councils and play soccer and eat the delicious american food that president makes anymore. But... life goes on and I am super happy with my new responsibility and just having a really good time working super closely again with the missionaries. 

Well, hope everyone has a great week!
