We have had a really hard time baptizing over the last few weeks. This week we were going to have some baptisms, but some of our investigators left to the sea, and others have some difficulties before they will be ready. I feel a little stressed out for that, but we have an investigator this week who is super positive, and one of the few that actually read what we leave them!
This week was District conference, so we went to the bigger church out by the Nicaragua military base. The bus broke down, so we got to the church at about 10 o'clock, and the district meeting started at 9 haha. Then the volume didn't work so we sat around for thirty minutes while they repaired it. Things definitely don't go as smooth as back in Utah, but it was a blast. Everyone got home safely, even though the buses were packed like sardines!
We also had a meeting with President Collado this week and we talked about current issues and how we can be better missionaries. I really look up to Collado and his wife, they are such great examples to the mission and really help us to be the best missionaries that we can. Then they invited the zone to lunch. We all ate chicken burgers from membreños.
Today we went to a place called Caminante to look for ties. I bought a sweet one for only ten cords. That's less than fifty cents. I love how everything is so cheap here. We also got our haircuts for forty cords, which is like a dollar fifty. What a steal!
It got me thinking about how blessed we are from home. The guy who cut my hair makes about 15 dollars a day for working 11 hours. We are so blessed to have what we have. Anytime you think your life is hard, you just need to look at the lives of these people, who have almost nothing.
Thanks for all that you have done for me. I love all of your letters and the photos! Cant wait to see you guys in a few more months. Love you!
