the work

Monday, March 21, 2016

It’s been another awesome week here in Nicaragua. The weather here is getting really hot as we are approaching la Semana Santa (Holy Week). I am so very lucky to be in Carazo where the weather is a lot cooler. But I still feel like I am dying of the heat sometimes.

This week we did a lot more work out in El Socorro. I came home on Sunday and my shoes were so dirty inside and out. I love teaching the people and getting to know their needs and how the gospel can help them. I honestly love these people so much.

Love you all so much and hope you all have a great week.

  • How has this week been? What has been positive about it? What has been a challenge? The week went really well. We have seen a lot of progression in some of our investigators. At the same time we saw some investigators take steps backwards.
  • Any funny experiences this week that brought a smile to your face? Not anything in particular, just trying to make the most of every moment.
