So another week down and another change. I will be going to the city in a zone called Country. My new companion will be Elder Vazquez. I don’t know if you guys remember him from one of my last changes around last May/June. While I was serving in Campamento with Elder Valdetano he was companions with Elder Zachreson in Guaimaca. He is from Puebla Mexico. I now have had every Elder that is from Puebla Mexico as my companion in the mission, crazy huh?
--but yeah, this week we had a leadership counsel and President commented on a couple things our zone could do better. It is just sad for me that I won’t be there to carry it out. My time with Elder Huscroft has come to an end. I am very happy that I could have him as my companion.
Another set back happened this week-- Huscroft got really sick and we couldn’t work for a while. All the gringo’s here call it the Juticalpa Bug. Seriously, almost every gringo that comes out to Olancho gets really sick and you just can’t work for a bit. We did what we were supposed to. I am leaving Juticalpa and feel that the Lord is satisfied by our work. I’m going to be packing most of my p-day and making sure everything is good here for when Elder Huscroft’s new companion shows up, so that they can kick it right off.
Hope everyone had a good week. I am including photos of a family I worked with for most of my 3 changes here, the Soleno family. They are so much fun and the father has overcome so much to prepare to go to the temple in a little while with his family to claim the blessings therein.
My new area is like in the smack-dab middle of Tegucigalpa almost. I will be a little bit further in than the zone Torocagua. If you want a reference, Bulevar is the outskirt (or the Nueva) then Torocagua where I was during the lockdown and then Country moves a little farther into the city. So it will really be my first city area. I’ll be on guard for more robbery attempts, but I know if I follow the rules I will be blessed and shouldn’t have any problems.
I love you guys! Hope you have a fantastic week and can keep loving the Lord and his gospel! I know it’s true and it brings peace and strength to our lives if we seek it out. I love you guys and
