Hey everyone! How is your summer going! Its seriously a heat wave here in Coatepeque and Im pretty sure its 50 times hotter than wherever you may be right now. So we just came back from a bananero, a banana factory where they produce del monte bananas. It was really fun and interesting! Then we ate hamburgers and played soccer on a little field on the factory site. This week was Delfina's baptism, age 11. She is awesome and her family is so cute… plus her dad is soo funny, he reminds me a lot of you dad! This week was challenging but we are working hard to help our investigators progress. Im still working on building my faith day by day through fervent prayer and positive thoughts. Trials really do strengthen us and test our capacities, Ive learned this much just this week. Who knows what other challenges will be placed before me but all I can do is put my faith to use and keep myself optimistic about my life. I feel I have a great responsibility right now to help the people in my area. Thanks for your consistent prayers, I really need them right now. I love you all.

Change 3

Hey everyone. So there were changes this week but luckily I didnt have any and neither did my comp. So now I am in my 3rd change here in Coatepeque. Im soo glad I didnt have changes because I love love love my area and my comp too! I did go to the changes meeting though to hand out the english certificates to 3 of my latino students who finished their missions on Wednesday. Anyways... so right now we are in the process of looking for new investigators since we baptized all of ours last month. We have an investigator, Delfina who has a baptismal date later this month so we are working with her. Right now we are working a ton with members and planning fun activities so members can invite their friends. We are planning a talent show for Thursday and the whole ward is participating. Yesterday my comp and I met with a member family for lunch to plan everything so we are excited to start letting everyone know and invite everyone! We chose acts from the bible and book of mormon and each society or quorom is going to act one out. My comp and I are going to act out the quarrel between 2 women and King Salomon in the book of Kings... one of my favorite stories! Even though we are working hard, the mission is not as easy as it sounds. There are a lot of challenges and obstacles we are facing as well. But we are learning as we try to make the best of everything Heavenly Father sends our way. I know that the gospel can change lives and help us be the people Heavenly Father wants us to become. Love you all, hope youre all having a fun summer :)
