Rain in San Pedro Sula

Alright it was a great week this week. Really rainy, but really good. I think it rained every day which made all the roads here turn into rivers. But, this week was awesome even with all the rain. We worked a lot with less actives this week, because a lot of lessons fell through. We didn't get to contact much this week, because when it is raining, nobody does anything but stay inside on their couch and watch telenovelas. My birthday came and went, it felt weird away from home. We went to visit a member family with a less active dad, and it turned into us helping him make juice. Oh, the juice this family makes is the best juice I have ever tried. It doesn't matter what kind of juice, it is the best. This family is really awesome. They have a son in Brazil right now serving a mission, so they always help us out when they can. Lester Garcia is really progressing. He has such a great story, I am always amazed at how far he has come. We went and mowed a lot of lawns th…

A Week Long of Contacting

Alright, great week this week. We had some lessons fall through but that is ok. We did so much contacting this week, trying to find some new people to teach. We ended up 10 short of the mission record, but we didnt know till yesterday. We have a lot of cool stories from the people here. Each one has a different story, lots of them are incredible.  Each person's life here is different and that is really what I have been trying to focus on, teaching the lessons to help them in their lives, not just saying words. Lester Garcia is our main focus this week, and he should get baptized this week if everything goes well. I really have learned a lot about prayer while I have been here in Honduras. One of my favorite scriptures is in 2 Nephi 32:9. It talks about praying always, and I have been trying to do that. I am always asking for help to know what to say, and how to say it. Anyways, we have been doing great here, and it is always raining here now.

New Area: Smith 1

Ok. Super busy week. So this last week we had to move areas but we stayed in the same ward. The new area is called Smith 1 and it takes in the neighborhoods Barandillas and Barrio Smith. We found someone with a car to help us move everything so that was a big help. The new apartment is really good, it is a lot bigger than the old one. The only bad thing is that there are 3 dogs that are owned by the land lord. 1 of them is super chill, Sacha, and really awesome. The other two are little rat dogs named Chispa and Toto that never stop barking. The area has a lot more people just walking around, and it is a little bit nicer, so we will see how that plays out. We have 4 investigators who are progressing pretty well, Lester Garcia, Armando Martinez, and Jose and Esperanza. Lester is making progress slowly but surely, he has come to church a lot and is friends with several members. Armando has only come to church 1 time but always is asking questions about the church and is really interest…

First Transfer is Gone

Well, those first 6 weeks went by fast. I am doing super good, and Spanish is still not where I want it to be, but it is getting better. So, my trainer and I are switching areas with the other elders in the ward, so I am moving to a new area. It is going to be a lot of work. Basically, because of my comps health, we are swapping areas.  My comp can't be in certain conditions that are in our current area but he doesn't have to go home. We had conference this past weekend, and it was really good. We watched one of the sessions in Spanish on a projector, some on a tv at the stake center in english, and some on a computer in English.  I learned a lot about prayer. Most of our people we have been teaching for a little while are kind of stuck, and it is kind of hard because we dont know what to do next, so we are trying to figure out some other way to teach them more. But we have a bunch of new investigators that are really progressing quickly. One of them is from a band from Hondura…
