I'm going back to Esperanza with Elder Martinez
like right now!!!
That was it...short and
sweet! A special thanks to all who have followed Elder Lott through this
precious mission experience. He will be reporting his mission in the
Woods Cross 11th Ward (1335 West 1500 South, Woods Cross) on Sunday,
June 18th (Father’s Day). Our Sacrament Meeting starts at 1:00
There is only one more pday after this and then I get home. Can
you even believe that??? I'm pretty anxious!
My interview with President Crapo was super awesome. He talked
to me about the flight plan and what's going to happen this last week. We
talked about dating and marriage of course and we also talked about like 7 tips
that will keep me on track always so it was really neat!
Getting to the mission office was an adventure cause neither of
us really knew how to get there but luckily we made it. We had to take
like 4 buses to get there and cross through like 5 zones but we made it.
President Crapo will soon be released and goes home on the 30th of June,
I think. He didn’t invite us to lunch but I invited my companion to Wendy's and
we ate like kings.
I think I'm gonna go back to Esperanza with Elder Martinez and
maybe make a quick stop by Las Ilusiones to say goodbye to David and Janet
because it's right next to it. It will be fun to go back with Elder
Martinez because everyone loved us a ton so it will be fun to go back
Monday is going to be crazy busy! We have to go the sixth
avenue to buy souvenirs and then head out to Esperanza and we will be running
the whole day but I will still try to write you. My companion is going to
have to write so we'll have to make some time in there.
I haven't started emptying my suitcases yet but I definitely
need to do that....
YESSSSSS this Tuesday we have the conference with Elder Renlund
and we are PUMPED!! We have to wake up tomorrow super early but it's so worth
it. The conference is back in Zona 9 in the chapel in Montufer.... that
really doesn't mean anything to you guys but that's where we're headed. At
least we know part of the way because that’s where the mission offices are in
Zona 9.... I'm not sure where Montufer is but we'll make it. We have to
get up at 4:30 to make it to our stake center at 6:30 and head out from there
with the other missionaries!
Guess what! We had a baptism this last Saturday!! By
surprise!!! Her name is Adric and she's 16. She was a reference
from the members and it was awesome! In like two weeks we went through
ALL the lessons. She was super ready to receive the gospel! It was
It’s been a good week with the interview with president and the
baptism as the big highlights
Well, we’re off! We're going shopping and my companion is
going to cut his hair and then off to play soccer! I'm so excited to see
everyone and will be there before you know it!
I just got a
copy of my travel itinerary.I’m
honestly super excited. I can´t believe
how close it is. It’s so crazy!I have my final interview with president this
Thursday! I´m not sure if they send a taxi but if not we
go by bus. The mission office is in Zona
9.It’s at 12... I´m hoping he´ll give
me lunch haha!
My companion is enjoying
doing all of these fun end-of-mission things with me. It´s pretty fun for him, I think! I wish I
could have been with a missionary that was finishing his mission because there
are lots of fun things to do at the end like going to the sexta and central
market and I think they take us to the zoo before going home.Sexta is sixth in Spanish and it´s the sixth
avenue where there´s a whole street of just stores to buy fun things.AND, I get to go to one of my areas to say
good-bye.I get to pick the area but I
can´t go outside of the capital back to Zacapa because it´s too far away.I just don´t know where I want to go...I want
to go back to all of my areas and say goodbye to EVERYONE.
I spend the
last day of the mission in the Assistant´s house with all the missionaries that
are finishing the mission and then the assistants take us to the airport in the
morning!I´ll be with Elder Vasquez for
my last day in the mission... Crazy huh?
This week has
been pretty normal... Running around visiting all our investigators and helping
the members! We helped a cute little
old lady weed her garden.We helped put
a roof on a house and we helped one of our converts paint her house…tons of
visited our baptismal dates that we have for these next couple of
months and went to church and everything! We saw the couple that is working on getting
married.They´re super excited for their
wedding.They just need to save up a
little money and make some invitations so I probably won´t get to see them get
married…the next missionaries will be able to enjoy the wedding and the baptism :)
going to clean the house and do some grocery shopping and then play some soccer
if we still have time haha!
