Well, it was a very good week here in Puerto again. The rainy season has set forth in, so it is raining about every day. Mud is everywhere! I did not take hardly any photos this week, I am really sorry, if I can, I will try to attach some older ones.
The power has been going out very regularly, so we have had a little trouble finding computers today, but luckily the church has a few we can use.
Some things that I love about Puerto is that everyone loves to go to church. Our biggest competition is the Moravian church that migrated from Germany to this area, and everyone is a member there. This week we have found a lot of people who belong to this church, but came this week to ours to see how it is. We visit church two times here every week. One at 9 o’clock for the Spanish ward, which has about65 people for assistance, and the Mesquito ward that usually has around 120 assistance at 4 o’clock.
I feel like I am starting all over again, because I can’t understand anything they say, just like when I started in Tipitapa with Spanish.
I love all the missionaries in our zone, everyone is so fun to be around, and my comp is so awesome! If you had any questions about his name, Elder Monson is not related to the prophet as far as he knows. The president of the branch and his wife are the greatest! They feed and do the laundry of eight missionaries every day, while doing their callings in the church.
Something that I have really come to appreciate in the church is the power and faith of all the sisters in the ward. In our assistance of 80 in the Spanish ward this Sunday, we had about 9 brothers come to church (four of them were missionaries) and about 40 sisters and the rest children! The culture here is so sad; a lot of the men work at sea for a week or two, and then come back and drink all of the time! it is so sad.
I promise I will take lots of cool pictures this week, possibly on the beach if possible, but here are a few, from this week. Love you all so much, and hope that you all have a great week. Thanks for all you do.
