Week 65 - This week was full of rain, sun, mud, and contacting!

October 19, 2015

Wow! This week was full of rain, sun, mud, and contacting! 

This week was a little bit of a different week from last week. We didn't have any baptisms this week. Elder Diaz and I were just looking for new investigators all week. We put in a lot of time in the streets talking to everyone and trying to find new people to teach.

It is a lot of fun to teach with Elder Diaz. He is learning super fast and is going to be an awesome missionary! He is willing to do everything to find and help investigators. He has taught me a lot about teaching the investigators their needs and not just the lessons. He is definately a great companion!

Wow....So I got a really bad cold this week and it rained a lot this week. I was super wet getting home from working on Friday.... Haha it wasn't super fun walking in the rain with a cold, but everything is good. On Thursday it rained super hard at about 2 in the afternoon and it rained for two hours just a steady down pour. After about half an hour all the kids just ran out into the street to play soccer and play in the rain! We got home soaking wet that night. 

I went and did divisions this week with another area in the zone. This area is right on Lake Managua. We saw some really neat stuff as we walked back into some really cool streets that were right on the lakes edge as the sun was setting. I wish I would have had my camara. There were a bunch of people out there fishing in little row boats and up to there necks in the water catching fish. Haha! We found some really cool people right there next to the lake. 

So cool story. The family that got baptised last week. The husband, Oscar, got the Aaronic Priesthood this week at church. He was super nervous! All this week he has been reading in Doctrine and Covenants to learn more about the priesthood. His wife is always reading in the book of Mormon. Every time we pass they always ask for more and more to read. They are so amazing! This week Elder Mateo and I taught the Gospel Principles Class because the normal teacher moved to spain. She was also our lunch cita. So we also are eating at a new families house for lunch. But there was a new family in class so I asked Oscar to get up and bear his testimony. It was so amazing to hear his testimony. I know that the atonement is real. And if we are willing to apply it into our lives it can change us very quickly! 

The work is going great. I love Nicaragua, I love Gallo Pinto, I love the people, but I also love my Savior Jesus Christ. He lives. He died for me. 

I love you guys!
