Feliz Navidad y Prospero Ano Nuevo

HEYOOOOOOO
Alright things are going well here in Honduras. We had a super good Christmas. There are a few families here who are super good. They always give us food, and they let us use their computer/wifi to call the family. It was super good to talk. It made me want to be able to find more families that can have the same blessings from the gospel. This past week in the mission, we had a meeting with our zone San Pedro, and the zone Valle de Sula. It was about christmas, and how we can be more like Christ. Especially this time of year, we focus on Christ. It's always super good to evaluate where we are, and then try to better ourselves. We also had a bunch of Christmas songs from the missionaries here. I played piano for the meeting. It was Carol of the Bells, I was surprised I could still play it has been 5 months since I have practiced piano regularly. This week is the end of the transfer, so we will find out later tonight which of us is leaving the area. Right now it is looki…

Feliz Navidad!

THE LAST EMAIL BEFORE CHRISTMAS!!!!!!!!!!!
         Well, its been a good week here in Honduras. It was kind of a long week because a lot of our lessons fell through, but we still tried hard to contact and find some new people to teach. Our investigators are still going well, but we found out that Leyni Garcia has to move. She is moving to a town in the mission San Pedro Sula East, so we are hoping the Elders there can find her and be able to teach her more. She really wants to learn more, and she wants to follow Christ as closely as possible. This is technically the last week of the change, but we wont find out what is going on till the 28th. We have been teaching families here about the birth of Jesus Christ and what it means for us. Every time we teach people about the purpose of Christmas it is so spiritual and we can really feel the love that our Father in Heaven has for us. Yesterday we were having a lesson with a family in the ward, Familia Elvir, and we were talking about Chri…

Never ending heat and chicken feet

¿Que Tal? This week was a good one here in Honduras. The weather looks like it might change a little bit so that is good. This week we had stake conference, and it was really good. They really focused on doing the little things like reading and studying the scriptures, and praying sincerely every day. These are the things that build faith every day. Just something I got out of the Stake Conference. This week we had the Christmas party for the ward and it was super cool. The christmas music here is super different than back home. They have a lot of merengue (I think that is what they were calling it). Lots of the ward went. This week we also went to a house of one of our investigator families to paint their house. We painted almost their whole house just with brushes, it took forever. It was good though, they gave us baleadas and pastelitos. They are a super cool family, and we are hoping they will progress. Leyni is really good, she is almost done with 1 Nephi in the…

Just when it was starting to cool off

Alright, we had a pretty good week this week. Last week it was kind of starting to cool off, but this week was an oven. Sometimes more than an oven. We were almost dying. We taught more of the people that we had found. We are really working hard with 2 of them. One of them is Leyni Garcia. She is super cool, and really wants to learn more about the church. She came to church this past Sunday and had a ton of questions about it afterwards. The other one is named Manger, and he is super cool. When we cross the Bridge from El Roble to Castaños, we pass him. He is always selling Elotes, grilled corn. One day he called us over and we taught him a little bit. The second lesson he told us that he hadn't been selling hardly any corn. So, when he prayed, one of the first times he had ever prayed, he prayed to have success selling the corn. Whenever we pass him now, he is selling like crazy, and when he sees us he gives us a thumbs up and smiles. We are still working to get him to church, b…
