Getting Lost in Tegucigalpa

The weeks are just flying by too fast, we only have a week left in this transfer and it's a 90% chance that I´m leaving, and I am not sure how I feel about that quite yet, haha.  I felt like I just started training Elder Gomez and now we are in the last week of training. woah!

We finally had Emily´s confirmation!  After her baptism like three weeks ago.  The weekend after her baptism was General Conference, and the week after that, her father´s friend passed away, so he was gone and we could´t have the confirmation yet.  But yesterday we had her confirmation.  Her dad, grandma, and her 94 year-old great grandma were in the sacrament meeting!  It was so great.  We also had Ortencia, one of our investigators, in sacrament meeting!  This was the first time she had come to church with us!  Hopefully she will want to keep coming back!  

On Wednesday, we had the second new missionary/training meeting.  We decided to take the bus and got really lost! haha.  We basically got on the wrong bus and ended up on the complete other side of Tegucigalpa.  (I think we even went out of mission boundaries, but shhhhh it was an accident). So we took a taxi and were only 5 minutes late. haha.  But, we did get to see a new side of the city.  It's where all the rich people live with the giant houses, and we also passed by Suyapa, which is this really giant, old Catholic cathedral.  We can see it from our area, but it's reallllly far away, so it was interesting to pass right by it.  We got to the meeting and it was really good.  The usual stuff on how we need to be obedient to the rules especially the mission schedule, and how we need to love and serve our companions.  

We have been teaching Bryan and his sisters Carol and Vanessa.  Bryan one day decided that he was not interested anymore, so he kind of dropped us, but his sisters still want us to visit them.  So we are still teaching them, and we talk to Bryan whenever we can.  We are still friends, but at this moment he is just not interested in the religious parts of our visits.  

For p-day today, we basically just had a little barbeque with the zone.  We cooked chuleta (pork) and had rice, beans, guacamole, and tortillas, super delicious.  We just kind of ate and hung out in the church. haha.  

Ahh just one more week in this transfer, we've got to work hard and end this transfer really well.  

I love you all, have a great week!
