Sarcasm, as it turns out, is not universal

Hey guys! This week was an awesome week! We had a bunch of success! First off, one of our investigators, Francisco, that I have been here the whole time to teach, has committed to baptism! He came to church yesterday and loved it! We took over an area from some former Hermanas so we have so many investigators/ inactive members that we need to visit... We haven't had to go contacting because we already have like a hundred people on the list. So really awesome, but really confusing and stressful as well. The other day we took Gloria, an awesome member that lives near us, to some of the lessons. They went awesome, but the thing about Honduras is that there are a ton of churches! There are like five different churches on our block! So these churches love to sing and play guitar and clap. The only problem with that is how terrible EVERYONE is at singing around here! Not even kidding, I sound like Josh Groban compared to these guys! Whenever we hear them we have to ask, is that a bar or a church? So I say "Oh this is my favorite song" while they are singing and my companion laughs, but all the natives we were teaching were like, "Wait really? It sounds terrible." So we spent the next ten minutes explaining what sarcasm is... so yeah... 

To answer your questions, my zone doesn't include San Pedro Sula. I am what the other Elders call a "Jungle Rat" because I am in the jungly area. My area is called Nueva Campana. We mostly eat Baleadas down here which are tortillas (corn or flour) with manteca (an almost sour creamy thing,) frijoles, eggs, and if you are lucky, chicken. We have these almost every meal with the members. 

Our whole area only has one ward, so it is pretty hard to get the people that live like three miles away to go... (no one really owns a car) and we are about an hour and a half from the mission home...

Have fun at the dance Kaitlin! Just hope you don't get sent to the fairgrounds like we did... haha anyway have an awesome week everyone! I am doing great here! Love you guys!

Para Siempre Dios Este Con Vos,
