Hardest Area

This is the view out my house window.

Right now I’m in the biggest tourist area of our mission and it is crazy! It is an old Mayan town and sometimes I feel like I’m in Italy or something! It’s a completely different world! Going from Tiquisate which is one of the humblest areas in the mission to one of the richest areas has kind of been taking a toll on me. This has definitely been the hardest area of my mish.  They haven’t baptized here for like 7 months............... so I’m kind of scared because this week was kind of rough! It’s just really hard to find men and families here! We have been trying to focus on that, and we have been working as hard as we can so God can bless us with some miracles!  We did have 8 investigators at church this Sunday!!!!

This week was the Semana de la Faimilia!  There were a ton of activities at church and we got to know a ton of people.  We also got a lot of references that we were able to visit during the week!

On Thursday we decided to go to an area that is about 30 minutes away from the main village.  We were contacting there and we found a huge miracle! We were walking in the middle of town, when we found a house and we knocked on the door. A less active member lived there with her husband who isn’t member.  Bonus they were stoked to see us! They went to the activities and then to church on Sunday.  We are going to be working with them this week.  We also have been teaching another sister who has gone to church three times, but  is still a little hesitant about getting baptizing.   We are going to help her so she can take the next step.

I think the hardest part about this area is the language and the huge catholic influence! Everything is SUPER TRADITIONAL! It’s hard to get people out of their routine! They still burn people who commit crimes here!!!!!!!!!!! Straight up Lamanites haha! But it's all good because it's also the safest area in the mission!!

HEY I'VE GOT TO GO!!! Pray a lot for this area and me! We need to see some crazy miracles so we can baptize my last two changes!!!


I found some ice!

I can hardly wait to go swimming!
