Hello, Well, I don’t have much time today to write so I’m just going to write this one very quick. I’ll hope you forgive me. This last week was in all actuality very good! We had a good Zone Conference with led to us doing really good work! Also, we had our stud of an investigator, Lutsaikhan, go into a baptismal interview! He should be getting baptized this week. He’s so good and every time we meet with him, he asks about his baptism. He impresses me with his reception of the spiritual witnesses and it makes us feel good to know that even if our words are not understandable, our spirit is. Off of that, this week while my companion was with the District Leader, I went with companion, Elder Odbayar, on an exchange. He taught me a lot in that he showed me the importance of Mongolian missionaries here. They are irreplaceable. They know the people. More importantly, they know their hearts and their minds. From that, they can speak directly too them. No language issues, no race issues, just one on one, serving your neighbor, missionary work. It made me quite jealous. I want to be Mongolian. I feel as I were Mongolian I could help these people so much more. But it did inspire me to learn this language to perfection. There’s definitely a distinct advantage of gaining their trust in your ability to speak the language. I love Mongolian missionaries. In following one of his spiritual promptings, we found ourselves in the house of a family of 9! It was way neat. They weren’t completely sold on the first time, but I think as we work with them more they, turn around to it. They are a good family. We also have this other guy named Byamba. We ran into him last Sunday before church. As we were talking to him, my companion puked. Remember? Anyways, he came to church again and was just as excited as ever. He feels that pretty much all churches are good but he has a testimony that we didn’t run into him on accident and from that he feels that our church is the right one, the best of them all. From that we were able to set a baptismal date with him and as we keep meeting with him, he’ll be baptized in like 3 weeks! As an interesting side note, I’ve got a boil/staff infection on my thigh. We tried to pop it last night but it didn’t budge. Then we tried to slice it open, but we got the knife too hot and cauterized my leg. Anyways, everything’s good. The worst thing that would happen is that we have to amputate and I get a wooden leg. JUST KIDDING. Everything is just fine. Maybe I’ll send you a picture of the end result We have to use warm compresses to suck the puss out. Wish me luck! Well, I love ya’ll. The transfers are happening this week so my beloved son, Elder Cardinal, will be going away from me. He’s a great missionary and I’ll miss him a lot but he’s already learned everything he can from me and now he needs a better missionary. Well, I hope you guys are finding just as much happiness in your work as I am in mine. Ha, that was a joke because it’s not possible. My work is the best. But you can all get involved in it too! You don’t need to wear a nametag like me, just keep being good examples and start to talk with people. They need this Gospel. Thanks for writing me and not forgetting me. ~Elder Cappuccio
I remember people saying if you were bad they would send you to Outer Mongolia. In this case it's different, because James is good he's going on a mission to Mongolia.
