Well, SO here in honduras there were elections, that went pretty smoothly, just our leaders were a wee bit worried because four years ago there was a coup d'état and the group was trying to get power again... And well, they wanted to forcefully take over. Well nothing happened and we are all safe. We were just super bored for three days because we only left for church on sunday and left. But it was funny, because we actually started on time, because nobody remembered that we were starting an hour later. We told everyone, but nobody remembered. the best part is they still showed up at 9:10. So we actually started on time! that was funny XD
Alright so i had changes my last wednesday. the worst part of wednesday is i didnt get into my area till 8 at night. Because i went to the very tip of honduras. the second farthest area in all of our mission... BUT its amazing, i am in a small branch where i am the first counseler and loving it! My companion is an Elder Duff, (pictures to soon follow) WHo is 22, served a year in afghan then two years in westpoint. He is a master story teller and the funniest companion i have gotten. He is also one of the most dedicated missionaries i have met. He loves the work and we are just working ourselves every second we can. I mean seriously, one of the best guys i have met, he gets all my crazy refernces gives his own, and we are having fun!
SO here we are having a small difficulty with active men in our branch, so we decided to have an activity to animate and pump up the men. We played soccer. With jerseys. We destroyed, and had so much fun! A bunch of the men started getting really animated, and hopefully we will see the fruit!
OH and also, here in Honduras are the presidential elections this sunday, so JUST TO BE SAFE (o sea, nothing is going to happen but the .001% chance that something might) we will be in the house from friday night until tuesday morning. Just leaving for sacrement meeting on sunday so just expect this email a day late. DOnt worry everything will be fine, and we are enjoying ourselves!
ALRIGHT! so i hope my mother sent off the awesome pictures, sorry that they had to be sent in so many emails, i didnt realize that i had the pictures at 12 mp. BUT last week we had avery fun P day because the First COunseler of our area decided to bring us to a HUGE Dam here in Honduras and buy us fried fish! Yes, i ate fish. I finished everything except the eyeballs, i couldnt handle that... BUT iy wasnt too disgusting, the marine soup that i ate yesterday was though... Fish Shrimp sea snail and crab all cooked together, and i finished a bowl but i went home almost vomiting. I still dont like fish. I did try but... nope.
But the other amazing news is here in this area, the very last weekend i was abl to see baptism of an amazing woman! Me andmy companion found her trying to talk to a member but we found her instead, left her a pamphlet, she read it and the next time we were walking by she gotupset that wewerent answering her questions! she has been pretty dang great about everything, and it was great to see.
The last part isthat iam indeed leaving this area on wednesday, and going to my 7th and hopefully my last area. Ill let you know next monday how that will go and ill say where iam!
So i am great, we are preparing an amazing woman for baptism this weekend, and we have NO Time because a member from our ward decided to bring us to a place in Honduras (with permission of course) and we just got back and we have to be done by 6. I am loving this time, but it keeps seeming to change on me. My mission president let me know that i am having changes next week, which is super strange because its usually the monday before that we find out, but because this is a new area, he wants to make sure we get the area super ready for new missionaries because this next change will be the last change in this areas trial period to see if it is ready to be open for 4 missionaries or if it should go back to just two like before.
ALSO i am telling this to you all now that the 24th and 25th we are having elecions here and no, i do not know how to spell that in english anymore. The 25th we are actually not going to be allowed to leave the house just in case there are problems because 4 years ago during the elections there was a cout de tat(?) and they want us to be safe. so as it gets closer and i have more information, ill let you know when ill be writing and responding, because it wont be on that monday like normal. remember that is in 3 weeks, not next or the other, but the last week of november. keep honduras in your prayers, and i know ill be fine! our leaders are keeping a good eye on us and making sure we have everything ready!
