Elder Maynes and Elder (ahh! I can't remember his name) Also came and spoke. They both served in the Paraguay/ Uruguay mission back in the day. They also shared a bunch of awesome stories and it was super great seeing all these special people. We even got to shake hands with Elder Anderson! Also great privilige. Even his wife came out here to Honduras! I thought the general authorities were afraid of Honduras since no one ever comes... but maybe they are finally breaking the ice :)
We also had a great week of divisions and I got to visit more areas and meet more new people. Probably the funniest thing happened when I went with Hermana Miller, who is another blonde gringa from Idaho. People were literally staring at us in the streets. It is also probably also because they arein the middle of opening the area and the people still aren't used to seeing sisters. But, lucky for us, we found 12 new people for them to teach. Sometimes it totally rocks being different.
For this week we are also planning the baptism of Melissa. Yesterday she couldn't come to church because she was sick, but we went to go visit her and give her invitations. She was in complete shock when she saw her invitations. Apparently she hadn't realized how close the date was! After lots of scripture sharing, she said it was okay and she would get baptized. My companion also shared an awesome story that Elder Ochoa had shared with us when he came. It is in Acts 8
I love this story, because first, Philip followed the Spirit to find who the Lord had prepared, then he helped the eunech understand the scriptures. After, the eunuch had such a great desire to be baptized, and nothing stopped him from doing it. Then they both left rejoicing, happy for what had happened.
Such an awesome story.
This week I also got to go back to my old area en El Bosque. It was super great and I got to give lots of people great big hugs! Also Katie's little brother and Yuber's little sister are getting baptized this week! It is so great to see how the Lord works many miracles through one person and brings more and more people to him.
Also.. new Spanish word for the week Chantaje. Chantaje is basically telling someone if they don't do something, you won't do something. Well, we had an investigator doing some serios chantaje with us.. so I did some chantaje back.. and we won the chantaje :) He was at church aten punto!
Well I love you all! The church is true.. and missionary work is the most joyful work in the church.
