Oh my goodness this week has been FULL of service projects.First we helped a member who is going to put
a water tank up there so we had to dig some deep holes so he can put cement
pillars.... Rough :)
Next, we participated in a helping hands project and
it was super fun. The whole stake got together to help paint the curbs all over
the neighborhood!We painted all the
curbs white!! You can't really tell though.
So remember when I told you guys about the Gomez
family? Well only one of the three got baptized (Noemi) and her husband wasn't
going to be able to make it to her baptism because of work but we weren't going
to let that happen so we went over and hauled ALL the dirt that he had to
haul.Like 2 hours before the baptism we
were just hauling dirt over our backs.We got it done just in time but here was no time to change before the baptism.We were BEAT but it’s a super fun memory that
I will NEVER forget :)
The rest of the Gomez family are receiving visits
from a couple of our elders here in our zone and hopefully will be baptized
Oh and add clean the church in there too.On Monday we started filling up the font and
while it was filling up we cleaned the rest of the church but then tons of time
passed by and when we went to check on it, it was flooding…oops! We had a small
flood on our hands but we got it taken care of ;)
I told you about Max last week.He was baptized on Monday.Max is 18 and he has become like a best
friend to us.It's awesome!!
Edgar and his little one, Willy, were baptized this
week and it was a super special day!Edgar’s older son, Douglas, was already a member and he was able to
baptize his father and brother.We just
have a little more work to do with the Mom :)
We haven’t found anyone who wants to cook for us so
we have to look for a place to eat every single day. We have been looking but
most people in this area are busy.Sometimes we just eat cereal. I miss David and Janet so much!We do have someone that washes our clothes
Elder Martinez and I are exercising every day and I
feel great!On Monday, Wednesday and
Friday we go for a nice run and the other days we do weights and push-ups and
we have a pull up bar and its crazy.
All is well in Guatemala!
Thank you for your love, support and prayers!
Mom, I just sent the shoe pictures so you would see
how great they have been.I wore the
first pair my first year and now I`m onto my second pair.It`s super awesome.I was pumped when I had worn my other shoes
right out. They could have lasted longer but I decided to leave them behind
because they were weighing me down, you know? ;)These shoes are troopers that’s for sure…
these will probably last Riley's mission too :)
Apparently he missed the instruction to rotate them
every day.Oh well, this works too!
