Week 51: Casi a la mitad
Yet another week down here in Honduras. This last week has been a lot like the rest except we were able to find some more people to teach. We have been talking more with that cuban family and they are really awesome people, they are super nice to us and want to feed us and everything but they still are struggling with their desire to attend church. They have had a hard time trusting missionaries in the past that have been really overly pushy and they didnt really feel any love from them. It helps a lot though to have a ward that is willing to work with us and help us out and visit their friends. We met a 20 guy last week, he is the son of a less active lady in the ward. He just moved in with his mom and we have been talking to him quite a bit...he accepted a baptismal date for the 21st of July...he still isnt 100% sure about how he feels about everything, but he says that if he feels he recieves his answer before that date, he will absolutely get baptized. Its been really interesting working in this area, its so different, but i love it.
We had a great p-day on saturday! So the guy that is in charge of doing all the painting inside of the temple is in the assistants` ward. He is from Murray, UT and is just here for a few months in Honduras. Anyways, he invited all of us 6 elders from the office to go check out the temple...but INSIDE! IIm pretty sure he wasnt supposed to do that, but we went anyways haha. It is absolutely beautiful on the inside. it was one of the coolest experiences ive had on my mission haha. Everything is almost ready, the only thing thats left is to put in the carpets, put up some mirrors and paintings, and they are waiting on some giant windows that way a couple thousand pounds each to get here. Im so excited for the open house, I think its going to be in November and the dedication in december. I really rreally hope i stay in the city when i leave the office so i can be close by when all that is going down. It is going to be such a big help in missionary work with people being able to see the temple and feel the spirit inside its walls. It will be interesting to see how involved the missionaries will be during the open house and everything else.
Anyways, how are things going at home? Some guy told me that Colorado is burning down, whats up with that? Im about out of time so ill wrap up. Thanks for everything hope all is well.
Con mucho mucho amor,
