We decided to spend more time contacting this week so we talked to A LOT of new people. I am starting to like talking to people more, but it also makes me realize I have so much more Spanish to learn. we encountered a lady this week who was playing cards with her friends. she is like 50ish and she was hitting on Elder Permenter and I, saying she wanted to marry us. It was funny, but a little creepy too.
In our talking to many people, we need a reason to talk to people, so we have been asking people if they know anyone named Suyapa (mainly because it is just a funny name). But, we have had some success, and we now teach 3 people whose name is Suyapa! haha ask and ye shall receive I guess. But On our quest for a false Suyapa, we encountered 2 people who are actually interested in the gospel and they asked us many questions about the church and Joseph Smith! It was hard to answer a lot of the questions because they knew the bible pretty well. I need to study the bible more because there is a lot of things in there that people interpret different than we do. But we will see if they make it to church this Sunday!
We also had many more opportunities for service this week. An older lady whose name is Hermana Troches had a wall built probably hundreds of years ago, made out of rock. so we offered to help build it again ( well my comp offered because I don't know how to build a wall out of rocks) so we get up to the wall and realize that it is not just built up of rock, but years of trash too! so we did a terrible job at rebuilding her Honduran wall because we were trying to do something in 2 hours that took 100s of years of trash to build!
The lady that makes the Elders lunch has a bunch of pet rabbits
We also got to help teach an English class which was super fun because it made me realize I'm not too bad at Spanish, and It is fun to help people who really want a better life and see English as a way of having it.
Although we don't have too many investigators, we have made many friends in our area. One including our banana man. He is a guy who sells bananas at the market nearby and we haven't had to pay for bananas for 3 weeks now because he always gives them to us for free! And we started going to this bakery store and yesterday the guy gave us cookies for free, i think because we talked a little with him about football! Little by little I think we are making a few friends.
I love and miss you all, have a great week!
