Another Great week in Puerto Cabezas. Some might think that it would be boring being in the same zone for nine months, but I hope that I never leave. We have seen so many miracles here in Puerto over the past months, its going to be so sad to leave these people behind.
Well, On Wednsday we had such a great lesson with one of our investigators that always come to church, but is so scared to be baptized. Our branch president, President Zuniga, was baptized about 10 months ago, and is now helping all of the people here to come unto Christ. He talked about his conversion with our investigator and how he wanted to wait to be baptized. I don't think I have had a lesson so spiritual. Even though our beloved investigator still has a lot of fear about being baptized, I think this lesson really gave him a boost. The same night President invited us to a lobster feast! It was deluxe, a whole lobster tail with bread and rice all to ourselves. Here it is a lot cheaper than back at home, but it is still quite expensive for these
people. It was delicious.
We have been working extensively with a family of less actives, and have seen a lot of miracles. This week one of the daughters of this family was baptized. The whole family came as well to see the baptism. Then they came to church on Sunday. I hope that they will be active soon.
Today we played soccer like always at the church, it was really fun. Always hot and sunny. We had a little rain this week but the weather was quite mild. Not way to hot, but certainly not cold.
Oh funny story this week, we had an activity like mutual for all the members in the ward at a members house. Our job was to bring a few seats to the activity. We got to the house where they were stored, and we took about ten seats. The house where we were going was really far from where we were, so we decided to put them in a taxi. After situating them in the trunk space, it was evident they were going to fall out. The driver kept telling us don't worry, don't worry, they are not going to fall, Then after ten seconds of driving, all the chairs fell out on the road, blocking traffic and whatnot. It was pretty funny recollecting them as the traffic drove by. I'm not sure if you guys will find it funny, But it definitely shows how the mission work is definitely not always ideal.
Thanks for all the emails, I love you all so much, Hope that all is well back in Utah! Have a great week.
