How's everyone doing? How's boring old k-town? Well, I know you all have lots of questions so I'm just going to get straight to it. When I found out who my companion was, Elder A.....he got so excited he picked me up and gave me a hug and President Hinzte and everybody in the mission laughed! Hahaha! My area is a little town called San Juan Opico and its about an hour west by bus of San Salvador. Theres a lot of poverty so theres a lot of people who love to hear the gospel. But there is like 5 different churches here and it's messed up. I remember one said....The Church of the Gods.
Well there is me, Elder A., Elder J. who is from Arizona (he has been out a month longer then me) and its funny because he went to Provo MTC and the natives always make fun of him because my Spanish is way better then his. But he talks it like a champ and likes to have fun as well. And there is another elder from Honduras. He's freaking funny and way good at soccer.
This week has been full of adventure and I can't even write it all down, Hahaha! Me and Elder A. have 2 baptismal dates this month and I'm super excited about that. Hermana R. and Hermano U. They're both super good people and their families are not members so we are working with them.
Every Friday night it's about 1 dollar to play a pick up basketball games with the locals its sooooo fun. Elder A. balls. He was in the Guatemala draft for professional basketball but he decided to go on a mission. He had like 7 blocks last Friday, Hahaha! We killed them like 56 to 20, Hahaha!! It's all fun here tho...everybody has a good spirit. and I love my mission and everybody in it.
se que la iglesia es verdadera. se que e espiritu santo es muy muy fuerta agui. yo entiendo el evangelio en ingles. pero el senor respuesta oraciones en espanol. es e broma aqui. se que jose smith fue a profeta de dios y thomas s monson es e profeta ahora. se que el libro de mormon es la palabra de dios.
