Sunday, March 06, 2016 -- Month #12 - Week #55 - Day #384 - El Dorado, La Entrada, Copan

March 6, 2016

Today we watched a satellite transmission for the 2 hour Conferencia de Centroamerica. We listened to Elder Mervyn B. Arnold, Elder Enrique R. Falabella, Sister Carole M. Stephens, Elder Kevin R. Duncan, and Elder Neil L. Andersen. That was good. They all talked about missionary work, retention, and keeping the Sabbath day holy. They also mentioned a lot of stories from SPS and Copan Ruinas, so that was a fun little moment for Honduras. It was kinda weird to hear such strong gringo accents, I felt uncomfortable and it was a little hard to understand them, although Elder Andersen was fun to listen to because his French accent slipped through a lot and there was some Portuguese in there as well. But he was my favorite speaker, he was so happy and friendly, even though he couldn't see us. He visited this mission a little bit before I got here, so I missed that. But it was a good conference overall.

And we had tomato soup for lunch! Yesterday we bought a bunch of tomatoes and borrowed the eldere's blender, and this morning we got everything made so it would be ready to eat when we got back. Hna Cruz was very impressed and she happily ate all her soup with a bunch of rice. In Ecuador they always have soup for lunch, as in every single day that's what you have for lunch. And a large serving of rice plopped in the bowl. So she was really happy today!

And we had a few citas and we found Josue! FINALLY! This was the 9th or 10th time that we've looked for this kid and we finally found him. We'll visit him again next Sunday, and then his work schedule should calm down and we can teach him more often. But yes, persistence is important! Everyone had been getting on us because we haven't taught him yet (he's a referral from members) but we honestly just haven't been able to find the kid. But now we have! Yay!

And we visited some other members and we made ourselves a typical Honduran dinner and ate it and we were happy. Good day.
