Wednesday, April 20, 2016 -- Month #14 - Week #62 - Day #429 - El Dorado, La Entrada, Copan

April 20, 2016

Still in recuperation mode, which means I'm more tired than usual. But we're getting back to normality poco a poco!

Hna Olympia always leaves the TV news on when we have lunch with her, so we got to catch up a little more on the earthquakes in Ecuador. Apparently there will also be an earthquake in California of 10-11 on the Richter scale (is that how you spell that?), and there's also a prophet here in Honduras that says that Honduras will get an earthquake as well. I'm not really hoping for more earthquakes in any part of the world. But, they are signs of the times and are reminders that need to keep ourselves ready for whatever may happen.

We did get to paint these bamboo kitchen spoon holders, which are pretty neat. There's this Hno Fredy in our branch that works in the bakery, loves rock music and likes to make stuff with wood. So he offered to make some spatula sets for us to take home as souvenirs from Honduras. So that was pretty awesome! We need to come back another day to finish up putting the letters on and spraying them with varnish to protect the paint.
Here's a sneak peak of our spatula holders!

And we had a cita with Cesia and Roning! We're still working with them. They're awesome, just have a lot of doubts, and going to Church is a stickler. But tonight we watched "Together Forever" (in Spanish, of course) and introduced the Plan of Salvation to give them some encouragement to get married (Cesia will have her baby any day now, I think) and that will be a big step to being baptized. Cesia's two younger sisters are baptized (by the elderes) but her mom isn't really ready right now. So it's sort of an interesting situation. But it's been good to work with the elderes with the whole family, they're very good people, honestly.

And that's about it for today, not a super crazy day, thank goodness.
