Finally, Free at Last


GUESS WHO HAS CHANGES AFTER AN ETERNITY?!?!?!

Yeah, so they just notified me that I finally have changes. Sad and happy to say it, but thats life. After 8 changes in Las CaƱas and 10 overall in the district (something like 13- 14 months) I don't remember exactly what it is. But still, the point is, is that I am going. I donno where still, but hopefully somewhere far away. So yeah theres that.

Also this Saturday we had 1.5 baptisms. Alejandra and her daughter paola. After I baptized alejandra my comp baptized the daughter, but her foot came out of the water so she had to do it over again. She basically just went into the bathroom and cried for 20 minutes and never entered in again. yesterday she couldn't even shower because she was so traumatized... so yeah thats pretty cool. I guess we will see what happens with elder lunt and his future comp. We had a multi-stake conference yesterday which was with all of Central America where 2 70s spoke and Elder Cook. It was pretty cool. Well kids, obey the comandments and you will be blessed. Follow his will and you will see the blessings in His divine time. Love all!!

Sorry theres no pics, this computer doesnt seem to recognize my camera.

Bowling and Suchitoto


So this week was pretty cool. Last P-day we went bowling as a zone, and it was definitely an off day for me. On one throw I just decided to throw the ball as hard as I could without thinking without really even aiming and I got a strike. Other than that it was garbage. But 2 people did get baptized! Veronica who is the daughter of members less actives, and we started teaching her like 2 or 3 months ago. So, that was pretty sweet! She and her family are pretty cool. The other day they had us make some tortillas and I made a square one and it was awesome. and my comp made a kite. they doubted our skills because we are white, but we definitely schooled them. So that was pretty cool. And the same day Carlos got baptized. About a month ago we found him through service that we did when we painted a house. Ever since then he has gone to church every Sunday and got baptized. So, that was way awesome! We didn't have to really do anything, he just did it all by himself basically haha. So yeah, this week was pretty cool!

Entering into the last week of the change. So next week I'll let you guys know whats up!

Love y'all

Mama Baller


So another week has passed in Las Canas and all is well. Nothing new to report on. Got 4 people that we are hoping to baptize this week or next. This week we will do their interviews then see what happens. Everything's going swell. I had to give a lesson on Sunday about the creation and it was cool. Also one of our investigators told us that some preacher guy told her 10 year old daughter that she and her family are going to go to hell if they keep listening to us, so the mom (our investigator) went to the guy to see what was up, and he said the same thing, and she responded saying, "Well I guess we'll see you there." and then left. Yeah, she's a big baller. Haha it was prety sweet. sometimes people are really annoying and I don't understand why but, it's alright because I guess they get to decide what they do with their lives.

No pics this week sorry. Love y'all. behave. Love God and be blessed.

More Progress


Well, this week was fairly decent. We had 5 investigators in church again. We were also expecting to baptize someone this week, but she needs a little bit more time. So we are hoping to baptize her along with a couple others in a couple weeks. Hopefully everything comes out well! Well, nothing too big to report on. We found a boat in the woods. So that was cool. Other than that all the same, all is well. This week I'll complete 20 months in the mission! Meaning 3.5 left. Be good and keep the commandments children!

Slumber Party


So things were pretty good in this week. We have been able to teach some positive people and have found some people that have progressed. This Sunday we had 5 in church and like 10 progressing. We're hoping that that can continue and improve in this week. Also, we expect one girl named Veronica to get baptized this week. That is if she desires to follow through with it. So that's where we are at for now.

Doing pretty solid and lovin life here in Ilopango. This week we were in a families house when the gangsters knocked on the door asking for a colaboration for the funeral service of one of their fallen homeboys hahaha. So, yeah. The family gave em like 30 cents, and a different day we made pupusas with a family (a mom and her 2 daughters) of investigators and towards the end of everything I told the mom that I couldn't eat anymore or I else I wasn't going to be able to walk. Then she said that I could stay the night at here place. Long story short the mom said "You don't need to sleep on the couch, you can sleep with my daughter in her room with the door locked!" then the daughter said "Yeah I guess its either with my brother or with me. So which one do you say?" Yeah, that was like the longest most awkward silence of my life as I thought, "Do I sound really homosexual and say I'll sleep with her brother or do I cross the lines and say that Id go with the daughter." they had already canceled out all of my options of the couch and floor and what not. Then after an eternity my comp saved me and said that the two of us would just crash on the floor. So yeah we got out of that house fairly quickly. No worries, I guess it was just a funnier experience more than anything. I don't think the family was serious, but they were just messing around with me. So yeah, welcome to the craziness that is this country.

In other news an elder in my district gifted me his Star Wars puzzle and the pics are attached below. Love you all, make wise choices.

Sigo


So this week was good. I'm already out of time so I'll be a little short. Me and my comp got tired of contacting the area because we have a bunch of time here so we decided to find new people to teach through service. This week we didn't knock any doors and we were able to find like 6 people through the services that we did and one of those people went to church this past week. Also, in one of us they made us dinner and some girls tried flirting with us and said that they want to go to the beach with us hahaha. No worries, I won't be going. I'll only go to the beach with them to baptize them in the ocean.

Serve people, and love God, and be good people.

Hasta lasagna.

Someone left on the mission, my new agenda cover (featuring Rey from Star Wars on the inside) and my district/zone, like half of them are my district.

Well, I don't have changes. Looks like I'll have 5 consecutive changes in this area and 8 all together, and 10 in the whole district. I already said bye to everyone and took pics.... some of the pics are below. I got nothing else to say. Just pray for me, cause I need motivation haha.

Yeah, I'll be continuing with the same comp.

Love y'all.
