Another week in TREBOL.
Monday night we had a FHE with a member and some of her non member friends... but they bailed... so we partied with the members and that was really fun. Tuesday we went and visited Maria, i think i forgot to mention her in my last email but she is 17 and loves when we visit her, she has a bapsitm date for this Saturday but has been super uneasy about the date, so we went and taught her Tuesday night and made a cake with her it was sooo fun and the cake was sooo good!! She lives with a member of the branch presidency cause she is their maid. I really love her so much!!! The other day we were walking with her from the church, and she totally gave someone a pamphlet and like contacted them and we were like what the freak but it was soooo cool and then after that she told us she wants to get baptized for sure but she only has 17 years so she has to get permission from her parents.. she went home today to ask them and is coming back tomorrow so we are crossing our fingers and saying our prayers. Also sad sad story, the cute family we teach with 10 kids, well their dad passed away and they have like nothing so i am sooo sad for them, we taught them the plan of salvation and the lesson was sooooo good but my heart is broken for them! Also we got to go to the house of the senior couple here with us, the Bakes and they literally are the BEST!!! I love having a missionary couple with us in Peten because we are so far from Coban so its such a blessing to have them here, and their house is sooooo nice i love it, it made me miss my sofas and carpeted floors a little..... hot showers not so much those are not needed here. :) Also we visited the member with her alcholic husband.... Thats such a tough story he really has had his drinking problem for like 45 years, super tough. This week we had zone conference and that was a blast! We ate food and were spiritually nourished too it was sooo good. We learened about charity.. and had activities and stuff it was super good. ummm i forgot to write everything down sooo i dont have too much this week. but today we went to Yaxha and that was pretty awesome its like Tikal but smaller. and more bugs, but it was amazing and I will send pictures next week. Funny story this week... well there was a scary dog coming after us and I was not thinking and I basically threw my comp in front of me hahaha i am a terrible companion but she was dying of laughter... its okay we both survived ;)... love you all so much!! oh and a really good scripture.... HELAMAN 5:12 this has really helped this week. :) love you guys so much!!
