Well this week was an interesting one!! This week was Semana Santa (Holy week)! And everyone, I MEAN EVERYONE, went to the rivers, lakes, beach, anywhere with water! ;) Los Amates was the deadest I have ever seen. Starting Amates was desolate! We were convinced that only the Elders and us were here! :) And yesterday to celebrate Easter (which nobody here celebrates...) We ate hard boiled eggs! :)
Um, I ate Iguana this week... Don´t worry, it tasted like chicken! (that´s a lie, it did not taste like chicken.. haha no, it tasted like Iguana...)
This week we spent a lot of time reading from the Book of Mormon with Fernando and Wendolly. It is amazing how true the Book of Mormon is. We have loved being able to explain to them the stories of Nephi, Sam, Laman and Lemuel!
We had a Family Home Evening with the Rojas Family! That was great. And afterwards, Giovanni, who is always joking around with us and making fun of us, said ¨thank you, this is the first time we have played a game together and talked about the Gospel.¨ That made it so very worth it.
We have been on the look out for another house to have the Church in.. The Elders house is just too small. It is such a good problem to have! We are always standing in the back because there are so many of us!! :)
This week I have been studying in Ether, and I love the story of the Brother of Jared. But MAN, I cannot imagine being in a boat (¨tight like unto a dish¨) for 344 days! And they were happy!!! It says that they sang and praised God while in these boats! Man.. better hope that the people in your boat could sing well... or you´d sure have to pray to learn to love the voices of the others! :)
This week I am ponderizing Mormon ¨For behold, ye do love money, and your substance, and your fine apparel, and the adorning of your churches, more than ye love the poor and the needy, the sick and the afflicted.¨ I would like to invite you all to focus a little more on the needs of others this week!
Love you all!! Hugs from Guate!
