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…

Heyo!

This past week was pretty good. It felt like it flew by. Partly because we were in Santa Rosa almost half of the week, but it was amazing. We had a Zone Conference on Tuesday, which was awesome. We learned a lot about the Sacrament and the Atonement of Jesus Christ. We learned about how we can help other people to understand the significance of the two. Hermana Bush taught about faith. She said we need to first believe enough to act, and then have the faith to act in the way the Lord wants us to. It was an awesome conference and I learned a lot of things that I am going to apply with my investigators.

After the conference, we had divisions with the other missionaries in Santa Rosa.  We were able to teach some of their investigators and contact some other people that were super cool. Then, on wednesday at about 4ish we ended the divisions. But, it had started raining the HARDEST it has since I have been in Honduras at about 3:45, so we had the 10 minute walk to their house in po…

Santa Rosa

Hey!!

This past week was pretty good, we had some cool experiences with several people here.

First of all, we went to a less active member's house and we were able to dedicate their home.  It was a spiritual moment in the week, and pretty amazing to feel the peaceful feeling come over us as we were dedicating the house.

Also we went for a follow-up visit to all of the new investigators we found in Los Garrobos, and one family at the bottom of the hill was at home. As we went up the hill, the rest of the investigators weren't at home. So we started back down the hill, and ended up finding the people that weren't at home in the street on the way. We were able to stop and share a quick message with them, and see how they were doing. They are all doing well, and are ready to learn a little bit more.

On Thursday, it started raining really hard, so we took shelter in the catholic church in Sinuapa. We went and talked to two señoras who were there in the church. They were really…

Los Garrabos

Sam's week: Los Garrobos
Hey Everyone!

This week was a very good week. We tried contacting in an area that we don't really go very often, called Los Garrobos or Brisas del Pedregal.(Everyone calls it the first name, but its official name is the second one). It is a little bit farther away, but it is a cool little part of our area here. It is a 30 minute walk, but we take a moto taxi to the bottom and then walk up.
We have several new investigators. We are teaching the Lopez family. They are a cool family and already have ties to the church because they have friends that are members. We are hoping to teach them and have them come to church. We are also teaching Betty and José. They are awesome and they seem like they will be receptive to the more we teach them. Also, we are meeting with Victor. We think he might be kind of hard to teach at the beginning, but that he will accept more as he starts to trust us.
We also had 3 less actives who came to church this past week, so we we…
