Saturday, April 11, 2015 -- Week #8, Day #54 San Pedro Sula

April 11, 2015  10:14 pm

That was a long day!  We didn't have to go to any doctor's appointments, so we were free to work our area, and we did that all day, so that was good.

Scripture from today:  2 Timothy 4:1-8, 17-18, 22.  click:  2 Timothy 4:1-22 The apostles were so awesome during the days of apostasy, it's hard when people refuse to recognize truth.  And we live during the time of the fullness of the gospel, where the church is strong and the heavens are opened, and there are miracles and the power of God is among us. How blessed we are!  If ye have a desire to serve, ye are called to the work, but to be chosen we need to be like Christ. God's pretty smart, it's us that need to figure this all out again with our feeble mortal minds. How much like children we are! Stubborn, rebellious children sometimes, but we are His, and He loves us, and wants to help us learn how to live a good life so we can be together again.

We usually think that we should want to return to live with Him again, but He wants to live with us again, too. If you have children, think about how it felt when you went away on a trip or something, and how happy and relieved you were to return to your safe home, with your beloved children waiting to give you hugs and kisses, and maybe even a drawing they made for you and how much they wanted to tell you all about the things that they did and learned while you were away. I imagine there will be something like that with our heavenly parents. We'll give an accounting of what we did, and we need to be engaged in a good cause here on earth so we can make a good report and be proud of how we lived on earth while we were separated from our parents. The principles of heaven apply to earth, and the way of the Lord is one eternal round. Pretty neat, huh?  click:  "Your Wonderful Journey Home" by Pres. Uchtdorf 

But in the way of fun, we made pupusas today!  Oh, my word, they were fantastic. E Santiago is from El Salvador, and I need to get some sort of a recipe from him so I can make them when I come home. Good stuff!  
You take a ball of maza and form a thick, small tortilla-bowl thing, and then scoop some meat and beans and cheese in it, and fold over the edges to make a ball, and then you smoosh it flat again and lightly fry it, and then eat it with some Latin American coleslaw stuff that is nice and spicy.

So yeah, that was pretty much my favorite meal here so far. I got to be quite the pro at forming the pupusas, and was kinda happy with myself because I havn't even made tortillas before, but it was similar to working with clay, so thanks Mrs. Kuntz for helping me make pupusas!
So yeah, it was a good day, totally exhausted, can't wait for Sunday tomorrow!  We get to go to Ward Council, and Hna Robles hates it... takes away from proselyting time! And then the next day is Preparation Day!  Yay!  click:  The Heart of Missionary Proselyting by Elder Wirthlin
