Another quick week in the mission field. We had a record number (at least for me) of investigators who attended sacrament meeting - 12!!! Unfortunately, there is still a lot of work to do to prepare them for their baptisms. The biggest challenge right now is getting people married. It is very difficult getting people married. We as missionaries have done what seems like all we can to help, but it is still up to them to get their necessary paper work, save up money, and just get it done. One of the investigators was supposed to go to Centro in San Pedro Sula to get her Cedula number but in the morning when we passed by and asked her she said she was just going to do it a different day. Consequently, they will not be baptized this change.
Well, I found out that my rash was actually an infection called Folliculitis. It has subsided a lot, but I am still taking some medication to help out.
We gave service Saturday morning to an investigator named M. They have a big yard with a ton of trash and leaves built up over the past few months. We raked and swept the debris into big piles and burned them. Burn Day!!! The "husband" was working next door. He´s not too interested in the church right now, but hopefully the service softened his heart a bit. M is ready to be baptized but needs to be married to J first but he doesn´t want to and they are really poor. Next change perhaps.
Well, that´s all I have this week. Cheque!
