Wednesday, June 01, 2016 -- Month #15 - Week #68 - Day #471 - Las Flores, Villanueva, Cortes

June 1, 2016

We made it through changes! Got to wake up at 5:00 am to get ready and hopped on the bus at 6:00 am to head to SPS. Finally got there at 8:30 am, then ran upstairs to the meeting with Pres Dester where we were assigned our new trainees and areas. And I'm training Hna Artica (ar-TEEK-ah) from Comayaguela, Honduras and we'll be opening Las Flores in Villanueva! Whoo! These are gonna be a fun last few changes I've got here.

But we all got on our bus and headed over to Villanueva and got to our new house alright. The elderes helped move our suitcases upstairs, which was a blessing, as I've found that mine weigh a lot. I'll have to leave lots of things when I head back home! Mostly because I've accumulated lots of Liahona's and books :)

But we got mostly settled and started cleaning EVERYTHING since the house seems to be recently built and is very pretty, just that it's full of the normal construction stuff... and I like my own clean dirt, thank you very much! So we set ourselves to wiping out all the dust and sweeping and figuring how to set up the fans and putting our sheets on our beds. And buying some food. That's important. That's the fun thing about opening an area, you have absolutely no idea where anything is or who anybody is.

And it turns out that we have a set of pots, but no dishes. And we don't have a phone yet. But we do have house keys! But we don't have a little dresser/closet thing to put our clothes, or a table for our books, so we'll be living in our suitcases for a little bit until the secretaries can bring them to us. But it's good that we're in Villanueva and about 40 mins from SPS as it's a shorter trip than all the way to Copan. Yup!

So yeah, we're just kinda chilling in our new area, the elderes arranged for a member to show us around to a few member families and point out a few streets, so we did that for about 3 hours. It seems like we have some good people here, so I'm happy.
