Honduras in August
Welp, this week happened, and it's already Monday again, and its already August, and it was already my fourth Fast Sunday here. I don't know you guys. Time is a crazy thing. We're coming up quick on the four month mark. CRAZY.
So good to hear from all of you and your summer adventures. Thanks for the photo Leah! So fun that you guys were all in California together. Oh nostalgia. Nah, it's good to be here. Lately I've been thinking about how completely different my life is right now, and how quickly it changed. Sometimes, it freaks me out and other days not so much. It's starting to feel normal to be here. I don't know if that really makes sense, but I don't feel like as much of an alien anymore. (Despite the solid fact that I'm pretty sure everyone here thinks I am a literal alien. Its fine...)
Not too much to report of this week. July was a pretty dry (baptism wise) month for our little area. As a district, (4 companionships) we had two baptisms, when usually every companionship has that many. August is looking better though. Hermana Peruch and I have two baptisms set for this Saturday with two Hermanas from Agua Blanca. They are both so great!
-Sumela, 23 single mom with a son of 20 months
-Marlen is 19 and married with two kids. The husbands progress is a little slow, but were thinking with her taking the first step, it'll help him progress too.
We have a family home evening planned in Agua Blanca with the Branch Presidency at Hermana Melgar's house and all of our/the elders investigators. Should be splendid. More to come on that next week.
What else? The weather is super hot, super humid, and super rainy every day. So that's great. Hermana Judd (my bestie/twin) have been whipping out our rain jackets a ton. So that's great. Transfers are coming up right quick and its more than likely that both Hermana Judd and I stay here for the next 3 months. If that's the case, we'll spend 7 1/2 months together in the mission. She is seriously so great you guys. Despite the hardships that I've had with both companions so far, the Lord knows me and knows I needed her in my life. She rocks, and she's from California, so we'll for sure be buddies after the mish, (Not that we think about life after the mission or anything...)
(Pictures to come next week.) THE POWERS OUT HERE and has been since yesterday afternoon. Due to wind and rain, but its normal here, this is just the longest its stayed off since I've been here. We're at the internet cafe place using their generators for power. They are the cutest nicest because they said they've been saving the generator power for us because they know we always come at the same time every week and it's our only day to write. Nicest.
Anyway, sorry this week doesn't bring any crazy exciting news. Next weeks email will be more exciting though for sure.
Love you all. Thank you for your emails, letters, thoughts and prayers.
Pray for my people, and be a member missionary for crying out loud!!! (ha)
This gospel is so true.
