Week 9


So to start, last P-day we got to go to some ruins, it was awesome!! I will send pics for sure!! It was super awesome!! A place called quiriguĂ , look it up.. or don't, I'll attach pictures too :) And we visited two banana farms, those are crazy!!

So we have been teaching Melvin, Darwin, and Daisy. They are PILAS!! (Chapin slang for "awesome"!) They are soaking in everything! Their grandmother is Vilma, our investigator that has a fecha (baptismal date) for next week!!! She is also awesome!

We teach mutual on Wed. and we tend to have quite a few non members come! We typically teach some English and then doctrines in Spanish. This week we started to teach the Articles of Faith in both languages! It is a great way for us to learn them as well in Spanish!

We had a Conference in Puerto Barrios yesterday! It was for all of Guatemala and was broadcasted throughout the country. Elder Bednar, Neil Marriot, the 3 members of the 70 for this area and a few other people spoke. Almost all of the speakers talked in Spanish! It was amazing how much I was able to understand!

We also traveled to the Cap this week for immigration stuff! Turns out government stuff in other countries takes forever too... haha! BUT the best part was we went to McDonalds after!! Man, a nice greasy hamburger (that destroyed me because it was so different from what I have been eating! haha)

We are starting to teach one of our investigators how to read! I felt prompted to ask her if she wanted to learn, and she said yes, then I felt the prompting to promise her that she could learn how to read by reading the Book of Mormon. She agreed, so we go over there and read a couple verses with her and then explain the story! She is amazing! Her name is Rosadelia. She has 3 autistic daughters (I am pretty sure she took in 2 of them). She has a really hard time, but a love for the Savior. We are really hoping to get her to commit to a date because we know how much the Church could help her, but for now, we are just going to serve her.

We also have another investigator, Mildred. She is pilas! She always has lots of questions! And she owns like the only hotel here with AC, so we know she is smart ;) She started reading the Book of Mormon, and we love talking to her because she gets it!!

It has started to rain here... haha, it rains basically every night right as we get inside! It is a blessing!!

Ponderizing: Ether 12:27. I love this verse. I have soooo many weaknesses that I have seen come to the surface as a missionary, but I know that with the help of God and through the Atonement I can slowly become better. What a blessing.

Love you all!!!
