Monday, April 13, 2015 -- Week #8, Day #56 San Pedro Sula

April 13, 2015  8:20 am

My study desk

My scripture and hymnal covers
[purchased in Guatemala]
Scripture of the day:  John 8.  click:  St. John 8 The stories of Jesus and the Adulteress and talking to the Pharisees in the Temple. I think this is one of my favorite chapters of scripture because it is a powerful, direct dialogue between Jesus and the Pharisees. I also love the Bible videos of this chapter on  click:  Go and Sin No More

I was thinking about why is it easier to believe in the prophesy, rather than the prophesied... I'll have to think some more on that.  click:  2 Nephi 25:26 (Talk / Rejoice / Preach / Prophecy of Christ)

10:14 pm
We had Pday today! Whoohoo! It was really fun, we went as a district and hiked up Coca Cola Mountain, and went to Pizza Hut for lunch, and wrote our families, and got food for the week, and taught some lessons. So I enjoyed today, it was probably the most I've ever sweated in my life, but it was good, we had a really fun time together.

The elderes were talking guns and cars and swapping war stories from their areas, and I felt like I lived in a little bubble here in my area, but I guess that's a good thing, apparently I wouldn't last 10 minutes in some of the places they worked. So yeah, being the nurse's companion has a different angle than the usual mission here, as we have to stay here in the city to be close to the hospitals and office, and sometimes we can't work as much in our area because of nursing stuff... everyone I've talked to is sorry that that happens, but it really isn't too bad.  We're still making progress, albeit it's a little smaller stat-wise than most other missionaries, but that's alright, because that's all we can accomplish in a day, sometimes. So yeah, getting really good at doing contacts with the taxi drivers since we spend so much time together... different ways of accomplishing the same thing.
I was so happy today, because we found this one computer place that was absolutely perfect, since we don't have internet in this area or something like that, we have to go to the mall, and there's some computer banks that are open to public use, so the ones that we usually go to are super busy and loud and you have to wait forever to use one, and USB ports don't cooperate, but today we found this newer, little, out-of-the-way one, and it was perfect! It was quiet and we didn't have to wait and the USB ports worked perfectly! The internet was a tad slow initially, but it warmed up and worked quite nicely. So that was a blessing, I hope we can use that one again next week.

So yeah, tomorrow we got a hospital and office visit, so we won't work our area until about 4:00 pm, which is "normal" for these kinds of days, and we gotta be home around 8:00 pm, so that's 4 hours to serve!  Gotta make it count! As always, Hurrah for Israel!
