Honderainian migration

Well, as you can see by the heading, Puerto has a lot to do with Honduras. I swear about half the people here are from Honduras. There is a great division between the mesquito people in Honduras and Nicaragua that situate in the Esat Coast, and the Latin American Western Coast. There has been lots of talk about this resentment from the natives here. They want to be their own community.

The members of the ward went to the temple this week, so president Glen of our district was absent this week. It takes a few days to get there from Puerto, so its quite a journey in the bus. I cant believe what they imagine when they go their, living in a small society where only the very richest people have a car if its not a taxi, and then go to a building like that. I don't want to say my branch president is poor, but lives in very modest conditions. 

Also more stuff about Hondurainians is about our neighbors! They were baptized and married this week! It was so great, and there were so happy! The photo i sent is of them and one of their children, the others are only more neighbors. sadly, the moms mother has fallen sick and they had to return home this morning to Honduras at 4 am. Only one day after their baptism and confirmation. Hopefully they will find the church there. What luck. What is really cool though, is that I started teaching this family since I came to Puerto with Monson, this is a five month conversion! Just safe to show that some people take a little longer than others to be converted. 

Sad news....... our neighbors dog Spikey passed away.... and they buried right infront of the house... kind of strange. then the same day a boy in another neighbors house passed away and they burried him right infront of the house as well. Strange customs here in Nicaragua. 

The other photo is me and my ZL Elder Compton from Brigham city. He is finishing his mission in three weeks, it will be sad to see him leave. 

Thanks for all of your emails! I love you guys all so much, dont forget to read your scriptures and pray! Love you!
