Thanks a ton for the post cards and letters. You guys are the best.
Well this week was good. We were able to get this one investigator to go to church again. That was a big accomplishment because last Sunday when she went to church this member got mad at everyone for going to church in pants and shorts and stuff and my investigator left church crying and said she was never coming back. With a lot of work and bringing members to her house she came back this week. So that was dope. Sometimes members can be tricky. I was stoked about getting her back.
Rainy season has been super dry. It has barely rained at all and when it does it is just a little. When I was in Sandino it rained a few good times where the streets were big rivers that were knee deep in parts. It really only rained good like 3 times. In Rivas there are a ton of bananas, plantains, sugar cane, and rice fields so when we ask people if there is something special we can pray for in our prayer a bunch of times they ask for rain because it’s been a super dry year.
Time is flying. This is the end of this change already—super crazy. It is a good thing because my area is super big but really just super small because we have contacted every single house in the neighborhood that we have as part of Rivas. The rest of our area is like 2 Km or more away and then that is just one street of houses and then we have a little town 4 Km away. We get to walk a ton. But it’s chill. Now that it’s a new change we can contact the same people again and they count as contacts which is helpful because sometimes we are looking for contacts and we have already talked to everyone this change.
We will probably finish contacting the last 2 streets out there and then go and work in Buenos Aires and see if we can’t find some people to teach. The problem is that it is so far from the church. Walking at a dead missionary sprint from Buenos Aires to the church is more than 40 minutes, more like 50, so almost an hour and that is walking super-fast. I timed it when I was working with an Elder in training and the ZL told me to walk super-fast so he had to practically run to keep up haha. So it’s far away. There are taxis but not many. I’ll tell you how the work goes out there because in the next couple of weeks we’ll have to work out there because we will have contacted everything else.
Peace and Love,
