First of all...the eathquake. Picture this, we get home from a long days work and we get home and get done planning... getting ready for bed, then all of sudden I hear things shaking... (I didnt even know what an eathquake feels like!) and so I look down and what do i see? the floor beneath me literally moving!! It was crazy! It was only like 5-7 seconds but it was wierd! haha I was on the phone with some other elders and then (I was laying down) I felt it again! We live on the 3rd floor of apartments and when I looked down the window everyonnne was outside freaking out haha! This has been an interesting week for the people in my area because of the earthquake and there have been a bunch of riots from students to the unvitstity UNAH. So a bunch of days we see alot of of students relaxing at their houses because la universidad esta tomada. Which is better for us because that means more lessons! :) This week has been raining like crazy too! Like we get soaked like crazy everyday pretty much, but its okay because its a change from all the heat.
Do you guys remember our investigator Maria? the one that I helped with the jug of water? well now she is progressing like crazy! She told her friend Carmen (the other investigator) that she wants to get baptized! We havent been able to talk to her about it to much because she has been on vacation, but thats our plan for today! Im so excited! I just hope I dont get changes rigtht before her baptism of something, because the 22 is changes! Yikes! Time flies by!
Yesterday we had a pretty cool experience, we have a member that is pretty cool, well theyre all pretty cool...but he wanted to come out and work with us and we said thats fine! So he came out with us and lucky enough.... none, absolutely none of our investigators were home or anything. I was really depressed about that because he was going to help us. But we kept looking, we ended up going to the 28 de Marzo and visit a less active, whos wife is an invstigator, and it was just what was planned by our Heavenly Father. I say that because she is not our first priority out of all of our investigators but we visited her this day and it was just what she needed! She was really stressing out this day because of some problems at the house, and mostly because her husband hasnt been home lately. But the member that we had really said some things that we missionaries may not have thought to say. It was a very spiritual lesson. And then after that we kept looking for our investigators with no luck. So we visited a less active. And we wanted to show her some Mormon messages that I have on my USB, but lucky enough, none of the videos were compatible with her TV, so we watched the only video I had that was compatible about the Santa Cena, which we have never seen before actually, but took the risk lol By the end of the video she really opened up to us saying that really wants to go to church and partake of the sacrement but she has pena to ask someone for a ride because she lives so far. But!! The member that we had with us immediately offered to take care to church, and back home! So that was the exact video that she NEEDED to see, and the member that NEEDED to talk with her. As soon as we left that cita we walked outside and our member said, well I have to go home now, and then one of our investigators from the 28 walked by us, and asked us when we are going to stop by! So we made a cita for later that day and it was awesome!! Man, its incredible the plans that our Heavenly Father has for us sometimes! :)
I truly love being a missionary, you never know what is going to happen when you wake up!
