A few changes

Ok, this week was really good. We had some changes happen in the schedule this week. They gave us a little bit more liberty in where to put some of the things we have to do during the day, and with reporting some of the numbers that we keep track of. They told us about the changes in a broadcast but before they talked about the changes they were talking about the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Which is: Faith, Repentance, Baptism, Receiving the Gift of the Holy Ghost, and Enduring to the End. They talked about how sometimes we treat each part as a separate thing like a checklist. But, each one is interwoven with the others. Our faith will lead us to want to repent, and as we repent we will feel the influence of the Holy Ghost more in our lives, which will build our faith even more, and that will help us as we try to endure to the end. It was awesome to hear about that. 
We also had a multizone meeting this past week, and that was about having eyes to see, ears to hear, and hearts to feel. It …

Warm weather is back!

Hey everyone!

So this week was super good. We were able to keep teaching Lesly and Leiny. It has been awesome to be able to see their progress in this time that we have been teaching them. We are excited to keep teaching them, and we hope that they will continue to learn more about the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  This past week we were running out of places to contact, because our area doesn't have very many contactable houses because of the gates on the streets, so we went to a poorer part of our area. It was super cool, because we were able to find people that were awesome and prepared to hear the Gospel. So we will see how that goes with all of them.  Elder Trujillo was kind of sick this past week so that wasn't very fun for everyone but, we are hoping the medicine he has now will help him out.  Every time that I teach the Restoration of the Gospel I feel the spirit, it is amazing. I know that the Church is true, and that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God. In my mission, I hav…

6 Meses!!!!!!!

Hey everyone. This week was really good. One of our old investigators Leiny Garcia moved back from Tela so we are really happy we get to keep teaching her. We also have been teaching someone new named Lesly Calderon, and she is really excited to learn more and more about the gospel.  This last week we served a lot of people. We swept so many sidewalks and garages. We washed a car. We mowed a lawn (remember that that means using a machete). It was super great. This week we worked to try to find more people to be able to teach, which is kind of hard in this area right now. But, we have been able to find more people through service. Through sweeping a sidewalk we found two new people to be able to teach so that was really great. That is one thing I really like about serving people is that when they are being served their hearts are opened and it is a lot easier to start up a conversation with them. Not only that but when we are serving we feel good too.  Another thing I have been workin…

Cold Snap

HEY!!!!!!! Its been a good week here in Honduras. And that is not just because it has been......a little cold??? Yep, the past 2 days it has been 50s, 60s and rainy and windy. It has been AWESOME! I never thought I would see 50 or 60 here as a temperature ever! We worked really hard this week trying to find more and more people to teach. On Sunday, we found this super cool lady who is SUPER interested, we are really excited to be able to teach her. We also started teaching english classes this past week, and it has been really helpful for my Spanish. I dont know why, but explaining in Spanish why we talk the way we do in English has really helped me learn some more things about Spanish. It is also really cool, because there were a bunch of kids in the class trying to learn, and they were learning so quickly it was awesome. One day last week, everything we had scheduled had fallen through, so we were trying to figure out what we could do to be able to teach someone. Then the impressio…

Happy New Year

Whats Up!
New Year's here is super cool!!! Everyone here waits to eat until midnight, and at midnight everyone in the city sets off every firework they could possibly find. It was super loud, and all of the air was full of smoke and everything it was so cool! The day of new years eve we went to a members house and learned how to make tamales the way they make tamales here in Honduras. It was kind of weird, because they use plantain leaves instead of corn husks, and then they just put a bunch of the filling inside, but it is all raw. The chicken, rice, potatoes, all of it is raw. I was kind of weirded out, but they turned out really good. They cook them in a huge pot over a fire. I would send pictures but I forgot to bring my camera to email today. With changes this week, we lost one of the members of the trio, and I am still in Castaños. We also went to an investigator family`s house and we talked with them about making new goals for the year to come. We talked about how, especial…
