Aug 19, 2013 Tegucigalpa Final Testimony Zone Conference

Hello Mom Dad and everyone,

Man well I read Connors letter and I would love to say unto him how unfair he has a car and members that feed him and everything. But I did like his testimony about how the new guy always gets burned hahahahaha. Here in the zone Elder Head is one of the newest guys. And I have become really close with the gringo ZL that we have in the zone. He is the one I got my suit made with hahaha. And he was good friends with Elder Head. But now because we have almost the same time with Elder Oveson who is the ZL. We have done division a few times and Elder Head always gets stuck with the Latin ZL. It’s just funny that the new guy always gets burned hahahahaha. And the whole Spanish thing will come along no big deal. I mean look at me I’m doing just fine and I really haven’t spoken English with my comps for the big majority of my mish so don’t worry too much it will all come eventually.  But man a car. The area presidency of Central America just prohibited bikes in all the Central American missions it sucks.

Well let’s see this week has been a very baggy week hahahahaha. The cool thing about it all is that on Tuesday we got a call from the bishop telling us that he had a reference for us and that he had put an appointment with them for that same day. So we went up there and it ended being a family of 10 people that lived in the same house. There was an older couple that one of their sons is the head of security at the temple. They are really positive. The guy’s father has a lot of really good questions. But it makes the lessons really, really long. The 1st lesson, the restoration, lasted 2 hours because the bishop answered a lot of questions. But it went really well and they had told us that they were going to go to church with their son to his ward. But on Sunday just before the bus took off, the whole family showed up to go to church. Man I wanted to do a back flip when they were all on the bus. Then just before the sacrament meeting ended, their son showed up to help us out. And he sat through the inv class with us and helped his parents understand the class a little bit better. I have a lot of faith that the whole family will get baptized it has been an awesome experience with them so far.

Then on Thursday we had my finally zone conference. So that means it was my turn with like 7 other missionaries to give our finally testimonies. So I went like 6. And everything was just too quiet and no one had made a joke. And then it came to my turn. So I go to start talking about that it had been a long time to finally get to this moment. And while everyone thought that I was going to say that it was time to go home. I said that I had finally got to come to Tegus hahahahaha. But it was really good. I think mine went the longest. But it was a great conference. Pres like always talked about repentance. It was really good. And this was the first time I had put on my new suit. And cuz I got it with Elder Oveson we put each others coats on each other to be super gentlemen hahahahaha. But it was really good. And to make us just look even more goofy. Just to remember we got the same suit and the same style. Sis Hernandez needed 2 volunteers in her class. So  Elder Oveson and I went up there in front of the 2 other elder that were going up there. And when we were sitting there waiting for the conference she had also mentioned to the both of us that we looked very handsome. It was sooooo awesome.

Man so after the conference we went to Wendy’s to go get frosties. And it started raining. Then the Zl’s asked me and Elder Head to go help them do divisions in their area. So we went over to their house to drop our stuff off and that’s when it started to rain too hard that we didn’t leave to do anything. And so we need up staying the night there at the Zl’s house. Tell Connor that at least he has an air mattress. Elder Head got stuck sleeping on the hard tile floor that night.

So what we came to find out the night we stayed at the Zl’s house like 2 blocks from our house there was a drive by shooting and they killed a lawyer that lived by our house. They passed by killing the guy at about 830 or 9 at night. When we found that out man I really feel like the Lord was really protecting us that night. It was sooo amazing cuz if we would have been in the area we would have passed right by there right as those guys passed by with the guns. Man did we luck out I feel sooooo blessed.

Well it’s been a really good week. But man I can’t wait to go home. But I’m still doing great. Have a great week love you guys
