So this week was good... mostly. We are working with our two families that we have for this weekend. This weekend is going to suck because we have papers ready and waiting for one wedding, but the other ......we are going to have to do some work..... Teguc at least twice this week. Sucks when we do that. (Note: Teguc is a two hour bus ride away although it is only about 45 miles. The roads in Honduras are super windy and although there aren't great mountains, it is hill after hill after hill. Add that to horrible emissions and crowded, dusty and non-air conditioned bus and you understand why he doesn't like it.)
For the rest of the week, we are finally getting food from people!!!! The people that we are baptizing, Luis and Suyapa, are giving us food. We had mondongo this week. It is a soup with corn, zucchini, potato, plantain, and yuca, with.............................................................................................................well, its a meat. its the lining of the stomach of the cow and part of the intestine. Its super chewy. But apart from that it´s good. Really good. And with arroz and tortillas, I am a fan. The guy is the jack of all trades. Firefighter, body guard, scuba, military, police, chef....so awesome. We are pretty sure that he could be the possible new branch president. he wants to start a scout troop here, and so we are thinking to start him in young men's. It fits. super cool beans.
Also, he lives above the old branch president. in an apartment. and we are finding some very interesting things out about him. It just makes me think of the scripture in Alma when he is talking to Conrianton, and he tells him that for his bad example, the Zoramites didn´t want to listen to the gospel. As much as you don´t think about it living in Utah, people watch you and what you do. People take note of how you act, what you say, and who you are. Actions speak louder than words. Pres. Uchtdorf quoted St. Francis of Assissi when he said Preach the gospel at all times - and if necessary, use words. Our actions say who we are.. D&C 121:41-46.
But apart from that, we have to quizas, maybe, make our own baptismal font in a river. Pretty sweet. but I might end up with leeches. So, its pretty so so. We went to look for the pila, and our invest. Luis helped us make our own pila. so stoked for his own baptism that he helped us start make our own pila. So cool!!!!!!!!!
We are working these weeks with the families that are going to baptize. Its hard to try and keep them animated and excited when the devil is working the hardest with them.
That´s really it, its been sort of a short week.
I love you all. Be safe, pray always, and keep on the straight and narrow.
P.S. U.S. plays HONDURAS in SALT LAKE!!!!! HIT THAT GAME UP!!!!!!!!!
Do it because you love me.
