Our service project was a riot! I loved it! So our Elder´s quorum president got married last Saturday in Mexico and he´s bringing his new wife to live here in Guatemala so our service project was that we painted and cleaned and basically remodeled his WHOLE house!!!
We gathered the zone together and painted, mopped, cleaned, EVERYTHING and it was CRAZY but it was so super fun!! I got to spend lots of time with Elder Brubaker too.... it was a great day.
Yesssss a member went and bought us Little Caesar´s pizza for all the missionaries in the zone and it was the greatest!!
The best thing that happened to us this week.... I think the best thing is this new Christmas program that the church has given us with new service opportunities and ideas every single day until Christmas and it´s fun to teach the members and investigators these things and see the happiness and blessings that this gospel brings. Service! It’s all about service. I hope you are participating in lighting the world this Christmas season!
Here is a picture from the baptism a couple weeks ago. This is the family where we baptized the husband and the little son like a couple of weeks earlier and then we finished baptizing the family just like the other week and it was super fun. The Fajardo Family--I love them!
Elder Ahumada (our third companion) has been sent to another place. We didn´t have enough water in our house to take care of 3 missionaries. We barely make it with the 2 of us. Water has been a small problem here in this house but we´re in the process of moving. Showering water and dish washing water and all of that is hard to come by in this location. Drinking water we can buy whenever we really need it. I think we´re moving to a little bit smaller house but we´ll be lots more comfortable with plenty of water so that´s what matters the most. The water comes and goes here whenever it wants so when it gets here we fill buckets and big containers with water and then that has to last us until the next time that water comes... Yikes... what an adventure!
Most challenging part of the week... probably working with the other missionaries in our zone. We have lots of new missionaries and they sometimes struggle a little bit so we have had to go and help them and work with them a little while every once in a while and it´s good and everything just a little bit challenging to see them going through these challenges. I do have lots of experiences to share. There are so many experiences and learning opportunities that I can´t even keep track of them all!!
Life is good in Guatemala. Hope you are all well!
This is someone´s pet in Elder Brubaker´s area!! Mom, can we have a monkey?
