Today we went up to
Rosa to do divisions, so we packed up our bags and
hopped on the bus for an hour. Not a really fun bus ride, as it was SUPER full,
and that's saying something for a bus down here. So Hna Cruz and I had to
separate. I went up in the front in one of the little foldy chairs they have so
you can fit more people, and she went in the back, with a whole lot of other
people. I kept looking back every few minutes to make sure she was alright.
And, just so you know you can bring just about anything on a bus. Plasma TVs,
live chickens, huge sacks of plantains, hour-old babies, washtubs... and this
time I sat by a guy that had brought a cat in a bag. Like, there was a live
cat, meowing and moving around in a plastic bag on the floor. I have no idea
why he needed to bring it, but it kept making noise the entire bus ride. Gotta
So we finally survived the experience of that bus ride, and got ourselves over to the capilla in
Rosa, where we did Weekly Planning and played with
words in English on the chalkboard. Dropped our stuff off at the house of Hna
Phillips and Hna Jimenez and went off to lunch where we had soup (read previous
entry for information about soup) and then came back, planned, and got the day
started. I went with Hna Phillips, Hna Cruz went with Hna Jimenez.
yesterday Hna Cruz lost her voice. Yup!
Rosa is a lot cooler than La Entrada, so we had to
walk around with sweaters and it is super windy. But, divisions went well, got
to meet some interesting people and do some contacting, my watch battery died,
we saw a little dead mouse in the street, and found some more churches.

|Divisions - Hna Cruz, Jimenez, Phillips, Mower|
- Ministerio Evangelico de Integracion Familiar "Linaje Real" their sign out front says, "Nosotros somos un pueblo adquirido por Dios, vive Jehovah de los Ejercitos"
- Iglesia CEFAM (stands for something about the Evangelical ministry and families... didn't quite catch all of it)
- Iglesia PIER (stands for the Primera Iglesia Evangelica Reformada)
That was the first time I'd heard of a church with acronyms. I love
the names just make me laugh, honestly. Copan
