Well we couldnt write yesterday because all the new
missionaries came in and it was pretty crazy getting everything squared
away. The office is really crazy as you know, but Im glad i get to write
First things first, About the Mother`s day call. I am free basically
whenever saturday and sunday, its just a little difficult sunday
afternoon because i have church from 1 to 4 pm. and the Rays have church
sunday in the morning. I can use the google plus again this time and
Elder Ray is awesome is letting me borrow his computer again. If you
people can do it on Saturday it would be better because thats my
P-Day...But we can work out the details during the week through Elder
Ray...Man i love having family in the mission haha.
On another note, La Familia Matute finally accepted a baptismal
date! its a lot more sure than it has been before, but they are still on
the edge with the desires to tie the knot and get married. The "Wife"
isnt really helping a whole lot...she criticizes him a lot and isnt
super supportive, but shes trying to improve. I had a really special
experience with them yesterday, We decided to stop by just to see how
they were doing. We asked how it has gone with the prayers and Santos
(the husband) was really excited to tell us that he and Ninfa (the wife)
had kneeled and prayed together the night before. Santos explained his
experience and that he felt a small simple peace, but a confidence as
well. He`s showing a lot of faith to continue forward. It was a really
cool thing to be a part of because before i was trying to think of a
million other things we could do to try and to get them to make the
decision...but really this just shows how IMPORTANT and powerful true
SINCERE prayer is. With TRUE intention...miracles can really happen and
people WILL recieve an answer from their heavenly father. So we have the
wedding date set for the 18th of this month in the morning, and the
baptism for the 19th. Im really excited about it all.
Also with la familia Sùniga, We have been focusing a lot more in the
husband because hes a little more hard hearted and hasn`t really wanted
to listen to us much. But yesterday he was there for the lesson but
asking all kinds of questions that dont really matter in the grand
scheme of things...but we kept listening to him and answering what we
could while trying to direct things back the the restoration...anyways,
towards the end we invited him to saying the prayer to end and at first
he didnt want to and told his nephew, Alexis, to say the prayer. Alexis
continued and said a good prayer and was an example for his family (he`s
11 years old by the way). But right after Alexis finished his prayer,
Carlos (the husband) started and said another prayer haha. It was really
cool, and it was a sincere prayer and so we are hoping to see some
progress with this family.
Things are going good though, we have some other families we are working with as well...I love the area.
Well, Thats about it for this week. thank you for all your prayers and for the support. Im staying safe here in Honduras haha.
Let me know how everybody is doing! I LOVE AND MISS YOU ALL!
con mucho amor,
