Burn Day


Well, another week here as a missionary in Honduras.

We had interviews with President Dester on Tuesday. I always leave a little more edified.

On Wednesday, we offered service to a less active named N and her family who lives on the property. We gather trash, leaves, and cut leña with machetes of old tree branches. It was fun and we had a big "burn day!!!" See pics. Her son, A is 10 and hasn´t been baptized. We are working little by little reactivating N (she has gone the past 3 Sundays) for the next 2-3 months and then baptize the son when the time is right.

We had a really good Sunday. It started out, however, a little tough. We went to 2 young families to bring them to church but had no luck. P and D were fighting (P was brought to tears, but decided not to go) and the other couple was also having problems. F was washing clothes and F was getting ready to go visit the other women he has children with. It was really sad. As we were walking up to church with, I saw a "La Prensa" headline (newspaper) that said "30% of mothers in Honduras are under 18"...what a sad statistic. It´s possibly even higher when you count all the 20-21 year olds who have children who are 4 or 5 years old. I was pretty sad for the iniquity this world has. But, the Lord always has His hand in His work. We had 8 investigators at church (well, technically 9 but we didn´t count one because of specific circumstances) and a lot of menos activos. 121 asistencia. They had to do a second sacrament prayer for the water.    

We have a family (F. P) who is really progressing well. We have good fellowshipping, the mother and daughters came to church (the dad works every other day so next week) and we have a noche de hogar tonight with them. A lot of work to go, but we are trusting in the Lord.

Well, that´s all I have this week. CHEQUE.
