What up family. Well this week was good. We found a lot of new investigators and this area is picking up. On Sunday the bishop gave us a reference of a less active family that is reactivating and they have five kids that aren’t baptized and then it turns out that the other daughter’s records got lost so she has to be baptized again so that is a sweet reference.
My companion had a funny story about baptismal records getting lost. He has a friend who is in the mission and while he was in the mission his baptism records got lost and so they told him that he had to get baptized again. So as a missionary he was baptized. The story made me laugh.
We also have another old investigator who was waiting for divorce papers to get baptized and we figured out all of the papers for them so hopefully we can get them in the water too. This month should be good. Those have been some of our blessings.
Today has been good. We went to the castle of Coyotepe. It was cool. It was some old prison and it is now a tourist attraction ran by Nicaraguan Boy Scouts. It was cool because it is up on a hill so we could see all of Masaya. It is an old prison. It has an underground dungeon that doesn’t have any lights. It was super dark and full of bats and graffiti.
We then went out for Chinese food. It was good just like old Dillon’s Chinese Food. In Nicaragua, restaurants are on a whole new level of ghetto. It is like you are eating and you find the end of a bone or something in your food and you are like that’s doesn’t count as chicken. But it was good.
Now I’m sitting and writing you but this week was good. Oh, we had a conference here in Central America. It was by satellite. 1059 people came to the stake center here so that was cool.
Well I can’t think of anything else to write about so I’ll finish with a joke: Joseph Smith was in the Vatican with the Pope and they were talking and the Pope offered Joseph a cup of coffee and Joseph said, “No, I’m fine.” And the Pope said, “Are you sure? You don’t know what you are missing out on.” They kept talking and then the Pope offers Joseph a glass of wine and Joseph declines and the Pope says, “Are you sure? This is the best wine in all of Italy. Well I guess you don’t know what you are missing out on." Then it’s time to leave and as Joseph leaves the door he says to the Pope, “Hey say hi to your wife for me.” When the Pope replies that he has no wife Joseph says, “Well you don’t know what you are missing out on.”
Peace and Love,
