Semana Santa


Well, we had Semana Santa this past week, and Santa Rosa was a ghost town at times since everyone was heading for the beach. Not a whole lot of work, but we did have some good moments. 

We had a noche de hogar with a less-active family and their neighbor friends. We watched The Testaments and it was a lot of fun. There was one man who worked with the father during the day (they work an ice cream truck called "chipsy") who was particularly touched by the film. We left him with a Libro de Mormón, and folletos de Lección 1 y la Proclamaciòn de la Familia. He has a family of 5 and we are going to try to start teaching him and his family this week. It´s a little difficult because they work until 8:00 at night, but we´ll make it work.

Our investigator Y finally came to church! It has been a great trying of patience, but at last she came. Most importantly, she made a lot of great friends in Relief Society (Sociedad Socorro or just Soc Soc). We have been teaching the rest of her family on and off from lesson to lesson, but since she came to church it will be a lot easier for them to grow in the gospel and come to church in the future.

On Wednesday, we tried visiting a members house but they weren`t home. They live in a "gated" community called Colonia El Pedregal. On the way back to the "gate" there were about 5 or 6 men drinking and smoking outside their house and one of them told us to come over in english. We went over and started talking. Pisto, Pisto, Pisto!!!!! Turns out that he developed the colonia and lives in the states for half the year. His house is literally 3 stories high with other attached guest houses if you want to call them that. He is a multi-millionaire (in dollars) and is just loaded - he owns a bunch of property in Santa Barbara (Honduras, not California), the Colonia, and he told us a bunch of stories about his adventures on Ocean Drive in Miami. He talked about how God had blessed him (even though he breaks quite a few important commandments on a regular basis) and said how great we were for "preaching the word" to people in Honduras. He said we can come by any time to talk about the things of God. By the way he was talking, however, we think he may be a Narco or got his money through sketchy means, but we´ll see.

That´s all I have for this week. 

Nos Vemos
