Saturday, May 21, 2016 -- Month #15 - Week #66 - Day #460 - El Dorado, La Entrada, Copan

May 21, 2016

Well, we worked in the morning and went and head lunch with Hna Haydee, and in the rapidito we went in there was a kid ayudante (the guy that collects the money you pay to travel in the rapidito and tells the driver to stop when you want to get off), so that was kinda funny. He was very nice, though, and told me "pase, dama linda"and put the little folding seat down so I could sit. So that was a nice change from some things that people usual say to me. Nice little kid, was about 11 years old, really young to be an ayudante.

And as we were eating lunch, a gecko ran onto our table and ate 2 flies. Which was random, but, good. Freaked Hna Cruz out a little bit. And I also put a tortilla on top of my soda to protect it from the said flies. Which made Hna Cruz laugh after being freaked out by the gecko. We had a fun morning!
And my soda with it's tortilla hat!
But we did a few more visits and ran over to the church to have Coordinacion with Wilmer, but he got there late so we didn't have it because then he had to go. So we kept walking around and found another church, Iglesia Lirios del Valle (it's a play on the last name of the family that founded the church, as they're the Valle family). And then we had to go to the church and hop on the bus that took us to Santa Rosa for the District Conference.

So we got to enjoy that and visit a bit with Pres and Hna Dester (he's in charge of the District and the normal District President is out of the country right now, so he had to come) and then wait an hour for our bus to come back and take us back to La Entrada. That was fun. But we finally made it back, and got ready for another day!

I was pretty proud of myself, though, since Hna Cruz and I sang 40 minutes of memorized hymns in Spanish while we were on the bus... the jovenes were going crazy in the back of the bus so we figured we needed to do something to keep our sanity and calm. Singing hymns is good for that. But we were pretty impressed that we could sing so many by ourselves. That's what happens when you sing 4-5 a day in lessons. The power of music!
