Cathedrals En Leon

     Hola Familia! This week has been a really good one, we have had lots of success in preaching the gospel and finding new families to teach.   
     This we did a service project for a wonderful family we are teaching. This family has just barely moved in to the neighborhood and built their house out of some wooden poles, sheets of metal, and some thick plastic. The dad works as a tricycle driver ferrying people from one end of Leon to another. I believe one Monday the rain finally came, and since this family lives at the bottom of the street, lots of water entered their house. So this week we built a large barrier out of some roofing and a whole lot dirt. Hope that it works, we will see shortly!

   The weather has dramatically changed, the rain storms are getting pretty big with lots of lightning. The other night I woke up at two am to find a waterfall in our house landing on my bed! Well, not a waterfall, but I did get a little wet. Those leaky roofs. Last night another big storm came in as well, its so nice because the weather is a lot cooler. 

  We also had a visitor in our house as well. When we got home one night Elder Sirrine had to use the restroom and he found a big fat rat behind the toilet. He armed himself with the broom and I got a plank of wood. We scared it out from hiding, and with the sacrifice of a broken broom, Elder Sirrine smashed it. I think that was the first time we actually got one without a trap or poison.

  We also got a new bishopric this week. After seven years of this one, it was time for a change. I could not believe it when our friend Ismeal was called to be bishop. He is only 29 years old, so it is going to be a blast as him with bishop. We went out visiting yesterday to a family that lives nearby his house. 

  Today we went to the Cathedral, it was quite spacious and really cool. Its the biggest cathedral in Central America I believe, so it was really cool. I put some pictures in as well of us inside. 

  That's all for today, love you guys so much, have a great week and cant wait to see you guys this weekend on Skype. We will be on at around four if you can. If not email me soon as possible! Love you!
