We have had some adventures this week...such as going to the emergency room at about 10:20 at night and leaving at almost 1 in the morning.#
We were rather sleepy the next day, hahaha, but we made it through.
We also experienced walking on the Honduras streets at about 11 at
night as we crossed the road from the hospital to the pharmacy, hahaha.
I could not believe how quiet and calm everything was when we went home
at about 1am.
As we sat in the emergency room, President Dester came and joined us.
I then proceeded to lean over to him and ask permission for to stay up
past 10:30, hahaha. And no worries, President gave us a ride home, so we didn't walk or take a bus home.
Saturday, I had divisiones, woo! I had a chance to work with Hermana Zelada again - love that girl. She is hilarious, enojadita, loving, and just a wonderful person. Her example taught me a lot of how to be a better missionary and how to help our investigators. We also could not stop laughing...for the entire day...We had to stop several times, actually, because we were laughing so hard, we couldn't walk. Hermana Zelada will finish her mission in about 3 weeks. I will miss her so much.
Lately, we have had an investigator named Vilma. Vilma is a lovely young lady, and was going to get baptized before I got here, but one thing led to another...and we're still teaching her. Well, it has been a while since we had a lesson with her, and we decided to make our lesson this week make it or break it. We thought long and hard about what we would share with her, and we finally decided to share part of the life of the prophet Joseph Smith, namely JSH 1:21, 23-25:
Some few days after I had this vision, I happened to be in company with one of the Methodist preachers, who was very active in the before mentioned religious excitement; and, conversing with him on the subject of religion, I took occasion to give him an account of the vision which I had had. I was greatly surprised at his behavior; he treated my communication not only lightly, but with great contempt, saying it was all of the devil, that there were no such things as visions or revelations in these days; that all such things had ceased with the apostles, and that there would never be any more of them.
I love those words: "I knew it, and I knew that God knew it, and I could not deny it."
To my great surprise, these words also impacted Hermanita Vilma. And she decided to be baptized. I am so grateful for the tender mercies of the Lord. I also feel as the prophet Joseph Smith, that I know these things are true, I know that God knows it, and I cannot deny it.
I love you all!
