Antigua ocotepeque

Heyoo!
This past week we got a reference from some members about less actives in a little town about 5-6 minutes away from ours called Antigua Ocotepeque. We decided to go where they told us we could find them. It was literally a barbed wire fence in front of a huge corn field, with some little houses in the background. We walked and found a little part in the fence, that we guessed was where we were supposed to go in. So, we started walking and thought, like.... what happens if this is someones land, and we aren't supposed to be here. We kept walking and we got to the main road of the little town, and all of a sudden from behind us we hear someone yell, "Elderes!" So, we started talking to them and it was the family we were looking for, it was pretty cool. We are going to go visit them again sometime this week. Yesterday, I spoke in church which was pretty cool. I spoke about the Atonement of Jesus Christ, and how we can always have the atonement written in our hearts. We had an investigator come to church yesterday named Alex. He lives about an hour away, but he came to church, which was awesome. Anyway, Happy Father's Day and have a good week!
Funny for this week: The water coming out of the faucet looks like chocolate milk.

Another Transfer Down!

Heyoo,

Wow, this transfer flew by! I have already been here in Santa Barbara 6 weeks, and it feels like a lot less. This past week we had a Zone conference in Santa Ana. They presented the new Christmas video for this year, in Spanish it is called "Ilumina el Mundo" (Light the world). It is about "lighting the world" through little or big acts of Christlike service. We can share the light of Christ that we feel with others who are maybe passing through a difficult time in their lives and need us to help them. Everyone should watch the video using #Lighttheworld, or on mormon.org!

We also were able to continue to teach Patricia Rogel, and she is going to be baptized this coming week. The cool part is that her brother that got baptized a few months ago is going to baptize her. They are both super cool people, and have great testimonies of the Savior. This past week we helped a family clear a piece of land by their house. We used a machete to cut a bunch of huge weed…

An interesting week

Hey! (Yes, I am still alive) 🙂

This week was an interesting week, but it was a great week as well. With all of the excitement after the elections, and everything that is still going on, they grounded us for a few days. Then, on Tuesday, they let us out till 4, until 6 on wednesday, thursday until 7:30, and now it is normal. We read scriptures, watched church movies, drew on the table with shaving cream ( we were bored and out of ideas). Yes, we were very bored. But, this week they let us leave the house again and we were sooooooooooooooo ready to be working again.

This week we were able to have Pathricia's baptism and it was great! Her brother who was baptized 2 months ago was able to baptized her and there were lots of people who came to share their support. Her sisters came as well, and they are interested in learning about the Church.

We also were able to continue to teach Moises, and he is really interested in learning more about the gospel, he always has questions for us, an…

Santa Rosita and the end of a transfer

Que Hay?

This week was pretty good. We went to a town called Santa Rosita this past week to go and teach Alex and his family. It's a little town about and hour and 15 minutes away from Ocotepeque. It was a good lesson but started out kind of rough. His dad is Catholic and at the beginning he was very closed minded about the church, and what we taught. But, instead of arguing with him we testified of what we knew to be true. We taught about the plan of salvation and as we taught and testified the spirit softened him and we were able to share a lesson and feel the spirit. The power of testimony combined with the Holy Ghost is amazing. Alex also told us he wants to be baptized, but he wants to be ready, so we are continuing to work with him so he can feel ready to be baptized. The only sad part is that this transfer ends on Wednesday and we have a feeling that Elder Sibaja is going to leave.
This past week church was good. We had several people come that don't normally make it t…
