|The Gringo's of Juticalpa. Latimer, Walton, Huscroft, and Roberts just getting back from the multi-zone meeting in Torocagua.|
So this week has been kind of sucky, but pretty good, you know spiritually and stuff. We had a good multi zone meeting that I had to conduct (dirigir in Spanish) which was really weird and nerve wracking. President presided and we focused on companionship study and other things. Our meeting was in Torocagua so we spent a while in a bus.
Elder Huscroft and I have had to focus on finding other investigators. A lot of people that Elder Banda and I were teaching have lost interest in our message. This week has been a bit discouraging and uneventful. We went to appointment after appointment and almost all of them fell through! Because of that Elder Huscroft and I have had a lot of time to talk. We have been discussing our zone and what we can do for it. Our ideas are flowing. I think that is why the Lord has put us together. So far they are working--we are expected to have as a zone about 8 baptisms this month. If it all comes together it would be so great after last month that was so unsuccessful. I’m very glad the Lord has helped us missionaries find people who are ready for the gospel.
One of the cool experiences of this week was that we came upon a guy who is a mute. He talks with his hands. Elder Huscroft had this little draw board in his bag (like the ones we played with as kids), so luckily we used that as our way of communication. His name is Freddy and he is pretty cool. He can hear and read, but he can’t talk. We just basically have him write on the board to us and then we respond back on the board. It was a funny experience to be communicating that way at church. Everyone was looking at us weird, like what are the Elders doing with this guy? Why aren’t they talking? I would have been curious too. It was a cool experience for me and Huscroft.
We had a lot of fun this week we are definitely close as a companionship. We get along. I just hope next week is a little better. love you guys!

|We are writing from the internet cafe, Sicos to be exact. It is not too far from our house and we don't have keys to the church. but hey- we got to write!|
|We are just chilling. There are protests going on, so we can't really do anything super cool today. We have to stay close to our house. The country's President Inauguration is on January 27th. It probably won't settle down until after that.|
We came upon this cow while out contacting on Thursday, the day before our multi-zone meeting.
This Honduran cow doesn't want any of our gringo weeds...
It has been rainy. I had to buy this rain jacket for 40 limps.
It fits me better than the one I brought with me, which is huge on me now!
