What a wonderful week has flown by! It was definitely a week full of a
lot of work, I am tired. But then again, you are always tired as a
missionary. It is the best feeling. Accomplishment.
So some updates about my new companion:
His name is Elder Tedders. He is from Meridian, Idaho. He is a stud I
love him already! He is a super great worker and super organized. He
has been out for one transfer longer than me so we will be good
friends for the rest of our missions I am sure. He used to play LOL
(for all those who know what that is), he knows how to fix watches and
clocks, and has a killer testimony of the gospel. All good things. We
are going to get work done in this area!
My title comes from a phone call that Elder Tedders had with Obispo
yesterday. We called Obispo to invite him to come to an appointment
with us and we told Elder Tedders that he was going to bring a cake
for us. Side note: elder Tedders has already gained 8 pounds since
getting to the area haha because the members feed us really well. So
Elder Tedders told him he couldn't eat it because he is getting fat,
Obispo's response in perfect broken English was, "I don't care Elder".
Maybe it is only funny if you know Obispo but....I laughed for a long
The week went well and really fast! We have been working like crazy
with the less actives in our area, trying to help relight a fire in
their conversion. Working with less actives definitely takes a lot of
patience and love. It has been a really overwhelmingly cool experience
to feel so much love towards people.
Today we are going to have a lesson with this really cool Honduran
lady! And we are planning on asking her to be baptized. We could
definitely use your prayers tonight. The power of prayer is incredibly
real. How wonderful to know that our Heavenly Father listens to our
prayers and answers them! I promise that every single one of you have
the right and the privilege, as a son or daughter of God, to know who
He is. So talk to Him.
I love you all! Have a wonderful week
