Ok the week was good. We had a multi zone with Elder Ochoa from the area presidency. It was really good. I don’t know if I’ve ever held my bladder for so long. I had to pee at the very beginning and I waited 3 hours to pee. It got to the point where it surpassed uncomfortable and was painful. But I didn’t want to leave and miss the talk and it was also awkward to get up and leave. I’m pretty sure I could have gotten the world record for the longest urination. My companion and another missionary were waiting for me to use the bathroom and they were just like, “Bro, how are you still peeing?” It was an extraordinarily long urination to say the least. I’m sure that you really wanted to hear that story, but let’s be honest I don’t have too much to write about this week so it will have to do.
My companion and I had the opportunity to eat lunch with Elder Ochoa and his wife. There were a bunch of the circle tables to eat lunch on and one of the office missionaries was like “hey you and your companion go eat on that table with Elder Ochoa.” So we did. It was cool.
Also this week we had a baptism of a lady named Rosa. It went well. A cool thing is me and my companion are good friends with the bishop and he has given us some sweet references of one part member families where the husband isn’t a member and they come to church on Sunday. We’ve been teaching them. They are super cool. He then gave us another reference of a lady who came to church and has 2 sons who aren’t baptized so that was sweet. It was really cool. References are the best. Most of the baptisms we had in Bluefields were references. It was a big help to us from the bishop. He is cool. He also put a new sole on my boots for super cheap, and he made me some super sweet covers for my English scriptures. They are all leather and super sweet.
Here in Masaya it is the center of the artisans of Nicaragua. Everyone here does crafts. The bishop makes sweet covers and there is another member in another ward who burns drawings onto them. I’ll send a picture when they are done. I still have to send them to get drawn on.
The work here is going well. The area is picking up. We are finding some people, seeing the blessings of God and the members are starting to help us out and also inviting us to eat with them so that’s good. I’ll probably get fat here in Masaya. Gallo pinto and fried cheese, yum.
Well we’re working hard out here in Masaya and it’s going well.
Peace and love,
