everyweek i think that maybe it might be normal and i wont have anything funny or weird to write about. and then by the end of the week i remember that this is honduras. and normal doesnt exist here.
this week was freaking great. i had my first baptisim where i baptized the person! his name is nahum. hes the man. i feel like if i wasnt a missionary we would probably hang out. its been amazing to see how the lord has truly changed his life and prepared him for baptisim. i honestly thought he wasnt going to get baptized but, of course the lord always pulls through for us and now nahum is the newest member of our ward here in la sarrosa.
so anyways this week ive realized that the same guy that stole two pairs of my shoes came back this week and stole our pots and pans from our house. and another pair of shoes. so this week i have starved. i hope that somehow this letter gets to that person that stole of our stuff and he returns them. thank you. haha
no, but other than that this week was good. my teeth decided to be stupid and one of the caps for my cavities fell out. so i had to go all the way to san pedro to go to a dentist. that was pretty scary. also i got sick earlier in the week. i made the mistake to tell one of the members. she made me come to her house and she squeezed a 2 limes into a cup and then poured like a pound of salt in the cup and made me drink it. yummy
and the week was capped off by watching this extremly drunk dude get in a fight with a dog at a gas station. this dog was just minding his own business and the dude would not put up with a dog looking at him. so went over and tried to tackle the dog but he was to drunk and the dog would just bite him.
way better then watching tv back at home
i hope everyone at home is doing great. dont forget about the power of prayer this week. it has truly been a life saver for me this week. so pray.

hola friends and family, another week reporting for the lord from the murder capitol of the world.
this week has been good to me. ive grwon alot this week and ive seen alot of families grow through the gospel this week.
this weeks adventures were tamed down a bit but still a couple of ones worth mentioning.
ummm i noticed this week that we have a water jug dispenser thing at our church building. but the thing is is that there is only 1 cup that EVERYBODY uses to drink from it. so out of the 150 people that show up to church they all drink from this same gross plastic cup. and its been the same gross cup since the day i got here. so that was pretty gross.
i was teaching a 19 year old girl this week and we invited her to church but she said she couldnt go because she had to wash all of her clothes. so i promised her that if she would come to church i would come the next day and help her wash her clothes. AND SHE ACTUALLY CAME TO CHURCH! and the first thing she says to me is what time i would come help her wash her clothes. so i quickly fleed the scene to avoid that situation. she probably wont go to church next week... haha
also some tool jumped our 10 ft tall gate somehow a couple of nights ago and stole two pairs of my shoes that were sitting on the portch. so that was a pretty good trial this week to forgive that guy.
but i had my first baptisim this week. it was awesome. his name is carlos. he doesnt really talk. ive probably heard about 30 words from his mouth the whole time ive taught him. but hes the man. its been amazing to see him grow. im so happy i had the oppurtunity to bring this gospel to his life.
anyways. great week. keep the mail coming. hope everyone is safe and going good.
