"ONE MORE YEAR!!!" July 7, 2012

Man, this week has gone by super slow!! On the most part, it was because it was the week of Cambios. On Tuesday afternoon we received a phone call from the AP's and they told us that we were going to be receiving 2 Hermanas into the area. We were then assigned to go out and find them a house between the citas (appointments). We ended up spending over 6 hours that day walking and making phone calls just to find the Hermanas a house. We told Presidente Hernàndez that we couldn't find one and he said to keep up the faith and look more. Well we picked up the Hermanas the next day and we received Hna Fronk from California and Hna Moore from Nicaragua. I found out on Wednesday also that Hna Fronk is the cousin to one of my BYU-I friends, Elyse! It was surprising to talk about all of the people we each knew from BYU-I. So now we have to share the area with the Hermanas... again.

We are now making wedding plans for next week! We are going to marry an older couple and baptize all of their family on the 28th de Julio! They are a family of 6. It'll be an amazing day for all of us.

The temple dedication of the Temple here will be in December. The sure date is still a little sketchy, but all of the members are excited for it. Our converts are asking us more and more about the temple. We were able to explain to them what it is and how it is not the same as a church building. Some of them even signed up and are practicing a dance they are going to do on the dedication day. We got a sneak peek of it at one of their dance practices, it should be cool.

Its not a big deal or anything but in case you were wondering....I COMPLETE A YEAR ON FRIDAY!!! I'm not exactly sure what the plans are for celebrating, but I've got to keep up the missionary tradition of burning an article of clothing. Next up to bat is a shirt, so I've got to decide which one is the gnarliest and get it some peace and rest. Maybe we'll be dining on my favorite Catracho (hondureño) food; BALEADAS! rica rica.
