January 27th

Hey guys! Not much happened this week. We did interchanges with our zone leaders and so I was with the one from Guatemala who didnt know English. haha. So I got to speak Spanish all day long which wasnt as bad as I thought! But we found some new people to teach, a couple families and so the only hard part now is getting them to be there for appointments. Thanks for sending me a care package :) haha! It doesnt have to be big. I love the little things! As long as there is a picture from Emma in there ;)  I am still in my training which is about to end next week so i will end up getting a new companion. Maybe Ill be getting a native! haha! Theres a pretty even mix of gringos and natives. haha. My district leaders keep teasing me that I will be training this change. haha. My Spanish isnt good enough for that yet. That kid is going to learn very little Spanish from me... haha! But everything is going good. I may or may not leave for this change Im not sure tho. If I do then ok cause I will get to see a different side of Honduras. Not that its not all the same... hahaha! Well I love you guys and miss you! Keep up the good work and Emma be good!!!

Hey guys! I hope everything is going good! Everything here is good and we are staying safe! This week, I got to baptize an 8 year old boy in our ward. The experience was definitely amazing. There is nothing quite like taking a completely clean of sin child, and be able to bring him out of the water. There really isn't a way to describe it.
The people here are very humble and receptive to our message. It really isn't hard to get into doors. Sometimes we get people tell us they are saved because they already have a church and stuff. Its hard to get them to understand that its different. There are hard hearted people in every part of the world, in every situation.Whether they are rich or poor, people still rely on their own strength and not the Lord´s. That is the most important thing to always remember in life. That no matter what, rely on the Lord. Everything will work out if you do. I hope your letters get here soon!!!! Well I miss you guys!! Emma is just as cute as ever! Keep being good Emma! Love you guys!!!
