March 18, 2013
It was a great week. Besides the fact that I had to travel just about every day this week, that's alright - it was fun! Tuesday me and one of the Elders in my district went to Tegucigalpa for a meeting for the leaders and we were there just about all day. We got back at about 6 that night so I just told him that he was stuck with me for the rest of the night and we were going to go and take advantage of the situation. We went and spent about all night knocking doors (which is great fun with a good companion)! We went and were rejected like 10 consecutive houses it was rough! We then just passed by a member to see how they were and then went contacting again. The first door we knocked, the people asked who it was and we just responded "the missionaries", the lady and her husband then opened the door and told us to enter. They are a family and super positive; we have hopes to put a baptism date with them. Another lade that we are visiting (Lela) is super nice. We went to teach her the other day and she told us that she wanted to be baptized so clearly we put a date with her. The highlight of the whole week was that we got to see the broadcast of the temple dedication. It was so awesome; I am so grateful to speak English and to have understood the words that left President Uchtdorf's mouth! It was awesome! It was just a testimony builder that this really is the Lord's church. I learned and understood a lot more as well about the Lord's blessing in the temple. I also noticed that the prophet and apostles are all happy and fun loving guys! It's true - this gospel brings happiness so why the heck aren't we happy all the time. Sometimes we just have to close our eyes to the bad things and only see the blessings.
