Week 94: Tiloarque

Hola familia!
    Well Im writing you from the Chapel in Lempira where i was about 3 changes ago. Im back in the Comayagüela zone but im in an area called Tiloarque. I have a feeling that im gonna like it here a lot.
    I was pretty sad to leave Comayagua. We went to visit la familia Rivera on monday and they decided they wanted to get baptized the next day. So we got to the chapel early to get everything ready...BUT, there wasnt any power or water...dangit. So we had to go to the other chapel in comayagua. La familia rivera wasnt too excited about changing the place...but we just got in there car and drove a few minutes to the other chapel. They didnt want to make a huge event out of the baptism so there were just a few people there. It was a very special baptismal service, the spirit was really strong. Brother Rivera was a little worried about it because he wasnt sure if he was going to be able to get baptized because he lost part of his leg from the knee down. but everything worked out great. They were pretty sad when they found out i was leaving. Luther Hyde got baptized on Saturday, I am really happy that he got baptized.
   Wednesday morning i got up early to travel to tegucigalpa to the changes meeting. My new companion is Elder Hernandez, fresh out of the MTC, he is from Guatemala City , Zona 18. He is one of the 18 year old missionaries. I feel kinda old haha. We are opening the area so its kinda hard to get started. The house is really nice...all new stuff. but the ward is AMAZING. its a really great bishopric. there are 30 return missionaries in the ward and they are all pretty excited to help with mission work. There havent been elders here for a year so the whole ward is like ´´yes! elders!´´ haha. We share the area with the sisters...well thats about all thats new for this week. still trying to find new investigators.
   Well thats about all the time i have for today. love you guys! the church is true!

con amor,
Elder Archibald
