We had a baptism this week! It was also my first baptism. Her name is R and she is the sister of V, the kid we baptized a couple weeks ago. The family was reactivated in the church and we had the opportunity to baptize the children who were not baptized or announced to the church when they were born. On Tuesday, another DL in the zone gave the interview and afterwards we asked her who she wanted to baptize her and she chose me. We had the baptism on Wednesday for her birthday. Pics hopefully will be attached. It had just rained and the pila water was kind of dirty, but it was a good baptismal service.
E and his family came to church for the second time in a row. He has a fecha for the 12 of Julio. The biggest challenge he has is to get married, but we and the ward are going to help him out every step of the way. He is good friends already with the bishop and his family and they will be a super pilas family when they get baptized. I hope we can continue to help them progress. He knows everything is true and has desires to be baptized. He is still a little skeptical with the 12th just because he knows he has to get married, but like I said, we are going to be there every step of the way.
We also have an Hermana named Y. All of her older sisters were baptized a year or two ago, but she wasn´t. We´re teaching her and she has a fecha for the 5th of Julio. She is pilas too. She is 18-20 years old and we always teach her with her super talkative sister. The sister also knows some English too. Y knows pretty much everything. She was a little unsure with President Monson, but we shared a mp3 talk with her and she felt good about it. She will be a strong member.
We are working with a lot of other people too, but it would take to long to write about everything.
Honduras lost to Ecuador on Friday. We were stuck in the apartments but everyone was watching it so we heard the game play by play. Elder G is super happy that they won. For P-Day today, we were given permission by President to watch one world cup game as a zone. We went to a residential area where a bunch of rich members live. It was fun. We watched Holanda beat Chile 2-0. There was another baptism on Friday night and the power went out with a huge rain and thunderstorm. It was cool. It was just bright enough to see the baptism with some emergency lights on. I caught an iguana with my bare hands yesterday. We also saw a pig about to go to the slaughter. It was squealing like crazy. It was both funny and sad at the same time.
I´m going to be sending some emails with videos, photos, and their explanations.
Well, that´s all I have. Talk to you next week.
