So conference was good. I missed most of it due to bringing investigators, and most of the sessions because it was not being transmitted well. But it is okay. We had some interesting stuff happen this week.
First off, we lost our four kids that we were going to be baptizing. They really loved coming to church and all, but their father....banned them from meeting with us.
Also, Noly, an investigator we have, is progressing more slowly than we thought, but it is okay. We are being very thorough, and trying to help her the best that we possibly can to make it a true change....and we are also working with the littlest sister of the member who found us Noly, her name is Adelfa. Her sister that is getting baptized is named Neymi. Names are weird here.
And we also started teaching a couple that the last Elders were teaching. Luz and Edwin. Edwin is 25, and Luz is 35. Her first husband died, and she had four kids to raise...so she shacked up with Edwin. They are okay. We will see what happens.
I had a very cool experience this week. There is a little boy in our area, David. He is 7, and his family are members. He got super sick with Dengue this week. And the poor kid got freaked out of his mind because the clinic where they took him to do the tests had some guy that was like dying from dengue. So when the doctor told him he had dengue, he started bawling because he thought he was going to die from it. So we gave him a blessing. It also didn`t help that his mom and grandma were freaking out like he was going to die. So I took some time to just talk to him. I convinced him that being sick is the best thing ever because he can watch as many real madrid games as he wants. So he took it to heart and did just that. The doctor had told his mother that his blood platelet level would drop before it got better, because dengue attacks platelets. It's a hemorrhagic disease, and when little David went in for the cita, the doctor couldn`t understand why his count had gone up. THE PRIESTHOOD WORKS.
That is pretty much it right now. I have no real cool stories this week. Jst a lot of working, and trying to be me. I just am surviving here in little old Honduras. loving it. pics!!!
I also got to visit my old area this week, and saw Carlos and Karla, Pamela, Norde and Glenda, all of my old friends!!! It was good!!!! I loved them all, and am so glad I got to see all of them. So here are some pictures....
|All the pictures this week are from friends in Zach's first round in Choluteca. I think the couple in the last photo are those being sealed on November 2. Zach has permission to go with them!|
