This week has been another great one.

This week there were changes and my comp Elder H had changes. So once again I am with Elder H and Elder L in a trio. It can be a little weird sometimes because we don’t know who will talk next in the lessons, but it will just take some getting used to. It will be a great opportunity to work with members and other missionaries.

Right now we are working in a place in our area called El Socorro. It is a very, very poor location where pretty much everyone has a tin/plastic house. It is very dusty and there are no paved roads. When the wind is blowing it can be pretty hard to see. One of the biggest problems that they have out there is there is no running water. So they have to walk a pretty far distance to go get water and carry it back. They are very humble. W is one of our investigators that lives in El Socorro. He is progressing a lot in the gospel and is very grateful for all the blessings that he has seen in his life. He has turned his life around a lot since we have been talking with him and he is very excited to continue to follow our Lord and Savior.

I love teaching the people of Nicaragua. I know that this church is true.

Love y’all,

Elder Wagstaff
