All our teaching appointments fell through, and so did our backup plans, so we did a lot of walking around and street contacting. All. Day. Long. Met some really interesting people... apparently I look like First Lady Laura Bush? And I should use an umbrella so I don't turn bright red from the sun, because I'm so white and from
Houston. And Utah.
And I don't speak much Spanish because of my whiteness. And one guy was in a
gang, but is Evangelical now, and wanted to know what our beliefs were on the
afterlife to verify that we were teaching correct things. And someone else was
poking the ground with a stick and mumbling. And a lady will only let us teach
her if we stay outside. And a young child was crying because he wanted to go to
the store in the car, not walking. Also, we passed a house that used Christmas
lights as a clothesline, I think the bulbs were removed? Very interesting day,
indeed. Plus a lot of walking outside, under a very intense sun... Vive
missionary work in San Pedro Sula!
So yeah, it was a bit rough today, got some chastisement from the scriptures, look up D&C 60:2... click: Doctrine & Covenants 60:2 gotta talk to everyone, huh. Also, need to work with the members more, we all got a part in this (Preach My Gospel Ch 9: The Importance of Members section, or something like that in English)... click: PMG Chapter 9 plus all the lovely people we met made for a fantastic day.
