Week 49: ¿No puede salir bien ni una sola cosa?

Playing around with my camera...

Hey everyone! So this week has definitely been an interesting one. Pretty memorable I'd say.

So transfers... I am happy to say that I am staying in San Pedro Sula 2 with Alvardo for another transfer. We're doing good together so I was glad that we were staying together for another month and a half. We've been working hard to have our new investigators become progressing investigators. This week we definitely had some patience tested. I think it's kinda funny because this last week pretty much confirmed my suspicion that working with members is bad luck. So we had like three appointments with some of our most pilas investigators this last week. We were pretty excited for the visits and even more so because we got members lined up to go visit with us. Sadly, however, every appointment fell through and I was honestly a little frustrated because SOMETHING always has to happen. My comp and I laughed about it though, vowing never to ask for member help again. Hahaha! I'm pretty sure God just wants us to learn patience, like always. We'll still work with members. Hahaha! It's just kinda funny looking back on it.

During the week I was a little upset though because so much fell through. I was kinda like, "Can't one thing just go right?" That's where one of our investigators steps in. So we are teaching this one lady who is a little more advanced in years, but extremely young at heart. She's the best. She is super smart and is a professor at the local university. She likes to greet us with a high-five and fist bump. So we were teaching her about the Book of Mormon and at the end we asked her if she would pray to know if it was true. She was kinda hesitant about it and that didn't sit well with us. We then asked her if she believed God could answer her pray and she was all, "Oh, I don't know." We then asked if she had ever prayed before and she told us no. Well... that's good to know. Turns out she's atheist. We were not under that impression because she told us she assists another church, but it turns out she just goes there because her friend invites her. We didn't have time to teach more, so we pulled out a pamphlet of lesson two which is The Plan of Salvation. We told her that she needed to read it all at the same time. She accepted. We left, but we totally spaced putting another appointment and inviting her to church. A few days later she called us and told us she had read the pamphlet and that she wanted to fix another visit. That was unexpected. So we got an appointment set for this Friday. On Sunday we were waiting for church to start and in she walks! It was like, "No way!" It was a tender mercy for all the stuff that had fallen through this week.

Water... Water... Water...

Thank goodness for tile floors and a great broom!

Other than that we had a fun day yesterday cleaning the house. We came home to find it flooded. Hahaha! I guy came and fixed a leaky faucet we had, but the house got flooded from a bad tube under the sink. Luckily nothing important was damaged and the house flooring is only tile, with a couple of brooms we were able to clean it up relatively fast. It was just kinda funny to open the door and find water everywhere.

Well, have a great week!
