I think we went to Tegucigalpa 3 or 4 times this week, I can´t remember
haha! On Tuesday we had an activity to meet the new mission president,
Presidente Ferman, who is from Honduras. He and his wife spoke to us
and they are super great. You can tell how much love he has for all the
missionaries. We didn´t get out of the activity until around 6:30pm and
we pretty much couldn´t find any buses that could take us back to Zambrano,
so we and the hermanas were kinda stuck in the city without a way to get
back. We ended up staying with the Elders in Cerro Grande and the hermanas
with the sister training leaders. haha. The four of us were playing UNO and
I am not kidding when I say that we played a round of UNO that lasted more
than three hours! We added more rules to make it more complicated, but I was
not planning on playing that long! haha
On Thursday we went back to Teguc for interviews with President Ferman.
We had three zones waiting at the church building to be interviewed and he
was spending 15-25 minutes with each person. So we ended up hanging out
in the church building all day. He was really spending a lot of time to get to
know each of the missionaries because he doesn´t know anyone yet. He is
super awesome and I feel like the mission is going to be great with him in
After the interviews, I had intercambios with Elder Gonzalez again. He came
to Zambrano to interview our investigators (the hermanas too) for baptism.
Yeah, he interviewed our investigator for the baptism that we didn´t have this
weekend. We are teaching this family and the daughter was ready for baptism,
but when we called to confirm everything on the day of the baptism, the father
told us that they were not in Zambrano and were not going to return until the
next day, but when we passed by the house, they were all there. The parents
changed their minds and didn´t think that their daughter was ready. We will
keep working with this family, and make sure that they are ready.
We decided to get rid of our garbage the way that all Hondurans get rid of their
garbage. Burning it!! We piled all the trash in our yard (because we have a large
back yard) and lit it on fire. So much more fun than bringing it out to the curb, haha.
Another good week here in Zambrano. Have a great week wherever you all are!
