What a week this week! We started off by getting a trio of Hermanas here! A bit wierd to see trios haha. We started running because my comp has gained a lot and wants to go home skinny haha. We actually woke up super early this morning and went running with a member! Its awesome to be running again!  
Anyway, we had four baptisms!!!! Francisco, Francis, Katerin, and Steffy!!! We had what they called a SUPER BAUTISMO! All the missionaries in the stake have their baptisms in the stake center, but we ended up being the only ones with baptisms. I baptized Francisco and my comp baptized the rest! 
The other picture is a game of chess we played on our floor with stuff form the kitchen and bathroom haha. (we are in a battle of chess, but I am winning 9-5) Other than that we had a normal week with great success! 
Hope all is well back home! I love being here in Honduras! I learn so much every day and I wouldnt trade it for anything! Keep me updated on all the news and know that I love you all! I love this gospel and the way it really changes lives and being able to be a part of that changing process in peoples lives!!! Love you and have a great week!

Week 20

Hey Everyone! This week was pretty great! We had a good amount of success and I am definitely wiped out each day from all the walking! We have had a bunch of lessons with four children, Francisco, Francis, Steffy, and Katerin. They each want to baptized next week, but they have had some problems with coffee haha so hopefully they can kick that habit! We will be having a giant baptism next week with each investigator in the zone so I think their will be a ton of people! That will hopefully work out! 
I will try to send a letter home this week, but it will most likely take a long time to get to you guys... so patience. haha! Not too many crazy things happened this week, just getting out and doing the Lords work! I love being and here and being a part of all this! I am doing great health wise and everything else wise. Love hearing from all of you and I love this gospel!

Conference was great

Well, conference has come and gone and how great it was! Priesthood sesh was easily my favorite! How great those talks were! Even though I could not understand everything, I could feel the power in their words! Fantastic to hear from everyone! We had a pretty slow week, but we were able to find someone that the Hermanas before us left in the carpeta. Apparently after two lessons, he left for a work trip and came back about a week ago. He told the Hermanas that he had recieved his answer and would be baptized before he left. When we talked to him he told us he had a few questions that he got from his work associates on his trip, but we were able to correct all these and we committed him to baptism as well. We recieved two new Hermanas so we pretty much spent all our time setting up appointments for them with members and helped them get to know the area. 
Also, There is not really easter here. They call it Semana Santa. Which is basically just that they all get off work and go to the beach and eat this really weird food called Miel. Super different! Haha Well That wraps up this week! 
Love ya!
