Don't Fear Egypt!!

Hey!

This week was our huge week of traveling, the traveling was not very fun, but every other part of it was awesome! On Wendnesday, we went and had divisions with the Elders in Santa Rosa, which was pretty good. They gave us the idea to take literally every opportunity to serve the people, even if it is super simple. I guess it is the whole thing about, "It is the thought that counts". It's just one way that we can show charity for others.

On Thursday, we went to San Pedro Sula, and we had a meeting with Elder Cordón. It was super good and I learned soo much. One of things that stood out to me was when he was talking about when Moses was called to lead the Israelites to the promised land. Elders Cordon started by telling us about how Egypt was "the" superpower in the world at this time, they had huge armies, cities, and power." He threw in a funny part there and said, "So, Moses, your job is to go in there and take on Egypt and the Pharoah. But don…

Looking Like a Lot of Traveling

Hey,

This past week was a good week. We were able to find a few new people to teach. One of them was Xiomara. We were talking with her mom, Yolanda, that we found last week, and we invited her to listen to the lesson as well. She was super interested, and was asking and responding to questions. We finished the lesson and she invited us to her family's home to teach all of them. She also already has a friendship with one of the members here so that was pretty awesome. We are pretty excited for that.
We also talked with Alex, and he is still reading the Book of Mormon, and he is still interested to learn more. He wants to be super sure before he gets baptized so we are continuing to work with him.
This past week Elder Rodriguez had an ingrown toenail and he had to go and get it "extracted." But, he is fine.
This week we have a big meeting in San Pedro Sula with Elder Cordón from Costa Rica. We leave Ocotepeque Wednesday morning at 7 AM to get to Santa Rosa to do divisions …

Good Finding Week

Heyo!

This was a good week. We were able to find several new people to teach. Jorge is a younger guy that we found. We shared a little bit of the restoration with him. He seemed interested but, his work schedule is crazy and we haven't been able to talk with him very much. We also received a reference to teach the granddaughter of a member here, and we are going to go and visit her tomorrow. We also found an older lady to teach. She is one of those people that knows literally everyone in the town, so we are going to teach her and hopefully find some new people to teach.

This last week, we had a ward family night and we shared a good video about forgiveness.

We talked about the Atonement of Christ and how we can invite the power of the Atonement into our lives not only to heal ourselves, but also to help us be able to forgive others.

We also had a meeting for all of Copan that we watche…

Baleadas

HEY!

This week was really good! We were able to teach Alex Mejia again, so that was awesome. We talked about the Book of Mormon, and he started talking about everything that he was learning and it was great. We talked about baptism and he told us that he wants to get baptized, he just wants to feel like he knows for sure that the church is true. He said if he feels like that then he will get baptized on August 24th. So, we are working to help him feel the spirit in his life.
We also found a new investigator named Besi. We started talking to her about eternal families and she got really excited, she said she was going to come to church, but she had something come up last minute. But, we are still excited to teach her more, so she can help the rest of her family.
We also went to the district meeting this past week, and they talked a lot about goals. With every goal that we have in life, we can ask for, and receive inspiration to help us achieve that goal.
Yesterday in church one señora …

A week of traveling

Heyoo

This week was pretty crazy with all of the transfer stuff, and it turns out that I ended up having to go all the way to San Pedro Sula instead of just to Santa Rosa so here was the week...

Monday-
9:30-Got the call to tell us that my comp is getting transferred, which we basically guessed would happen. They told us that we had to be in Santa Rosa Tuesday night so we can leave early to get to the changes in the morning on wednesday.

Tuesday-
10ish am- They call and tell me that I have to go to San Pedro Sula too to take a picture for my Honduran residency.
For the rest of the day I went around with Elder Sibaja to say good bye to everyone.
8:30 pm - the bus that we were supposed to take to Santa Rosa didn't leave because "there weren't enough people on the bus". So we talked to a member that told us where we can meet up so they can get us a ride to Santa Rosa. We meet them and the member flags down a semi-truck for us to ride to Santa Rosa. Kind of weirded out,…
