Santa Rosita and the end of a transfer
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 to church, so we were excited.
This past week from Sunday to Wednesday night, no one in Ocotepeque had water, but we have a big drum on top of our house that stores water for at least 6 days so we were OK. We went to a big mountain called Cayaguanca. It was cool, it looked really high up, so we got some good pictures from that. We get the call for the transfers later today so I will let you all know about that next week! Have a good one!
