Week 73 - Los Pueblos

So I guess the story of the week is changes. It was hard to leave Las Palmas and the people, but I love my new area. I am in a newer zone called Los Pueblos. It translates into english as the villages. Most of the zone is in the higher part of the city of Masaya, but a lot of the areas go up into the mountains. There is a district of missionaries up in the mountains by Granada which takes about a 25 minute bus ride. It is a super cool area in terms of the weather. Our area where we live is like a big subdivision, but we walk like 5 minutes and we are in farm country and climbing mountains. I will attach some pictures.

Its a lot cooler weather here as well. I wake up in the mornings a little bit cold. Something that never happened in my time in Managua. Sometimes the water goes out, but we have a big tank in the house that holds the water. Everytime we shower or need water you have to turn on the pump. If you want to turn the water off you just yell really loud and somebody turns off the pump.

While walking this week I have seen a lot of corn, tomatoes, platinos, and farmers in there little villages. This week while walking we ran into a member with three little calves so I told him I wanted a picture with the calves.....he is in the back of me holding onto the calf while it was trying to get away.

My new companions are Elder Morales, (The other Zone Leader) Elder Gesualdo (the companion of E. Morales that he is training) and Elder Hererra (my companion). Elder Morales goes home the end of this change and is from Honduras. We have been good friends as we know each other through Zone Leader meetings and I am excited to be able to work with him. Elder Gesualdo is my 5th companion from the Dominican Repulic. He is a super fun guy! Elder Hererra is my companion and is from Guatamala. He has helped me a lot this week to get to know the area and the investigators.

I love my new area. I love the work. I know that through faith, obedience, and hard work brings miracles. I love teaching the Nicaraguans. This week we walked back to a house clear up into the mountains and they were not there so we hiked all the way back down. I was kind of upset that they were not there to be honest....we walked a long way....hahaha. But we passed by a recent converts house and shared a quick message with him about the Sabbath day. I quickly felt the spirit and the love of Christ again and realized once again how much I love the mission. I know that this is the Church of Jesus Christ, and by living His gospel brings 
eternal life and happiness.

I hope all is well. Take care!!
