Alright so this week was a very long one until the very last lesson that we had on Sunday night:) I think I've already told you guys about Brother Recardo. Well, he's been going to church and has been progressing very very fast! Well this Sunday (yesterday) he decided that he wanted to follow the example of Jesus Christ and be Baptized:) He called us over to his house at 8:30PM because he said that he wanted to talk about some things with us. Well the news was that he wanted to be baptized. He read the Chapter in the Book of Mormon that we left him:) 2 Nephi Chapter 31 (this chapter is a missionary's best friend:) Well he said that if Jesus had the need to be baptized then he definitely had the need to be baptized in Christ's Church. He even set his own date! So on the 27th of this month he is going to be baptized:) He's a 20 year old so the next goal is to get him out on a mission!!! His Mom was baptized over 6 years ago and he FINALLY decided to get baptized:) He is the man!! He always had the best questions. I love it when people are real with us. I'll give a list of good questions people ask us and AWFUL dumb questions people ask us.

The Good
1. How can I know if Jose Smith was a Prophet?
2. Why is this the one and ONLY true church?
3. Who is Jesus Christ to you guys?
4. How can we know what is the one and only true Church?

The Bad -_-
1. If Coffee is a sin so is Coke. 
2. You guys are Jehovah's Witnesses right-_-
3. Didn't Jose Smith have like 68628 wives
4. My Pastor said you guys are from the Devil..

We get dumb comments like those every single day haha! Usually people just do it to make us mad. SO we've learned perfectly how to respond to them now:) Well I am so  excited for Recardo! He is going to be a great member of this Church:) I love him to death! I'll send you guys a picture of him next week!:)

Love y'all,

ZIKA -_-

Do you guys back in the States know what the ZIKA is?? Well every Honduran in the world has it-_- It's really hard because now nobody will let us in their house because everyone is sick. It's really really sad because it is really affecting the work out here. We're trying to offer prayers inside their houses so that people will let us in but it's not working to great as of right now! We are trying to come up with new ideas to get in the houses though! If any of you guys have any ideas let me know!!:) Well besides the Zika we had an awesome week!! Brother Davis was baptized:):) The service went so well and everyone showed up to support David. He is going to be a future Missionary one day so that's the coolest thing in the whole entire world!!! I can't now wait to see him as a missionary in just a few years! His family invites us over every single day haha!! We usually try to stop by 2 times a week though:) This week we also found two awesome new investigators:) Brother Rigoberto, and Bro Recardo! Both of them are awesome and have very high potential to progress in the church:) I'll keep you updated on them over the next couple of weeks! Well that's about it! I love all of you so much! Thank you all for supporting me 24-7 out here!!! I love you all!!

The Hermana Cilvia is so awesome! She is getting baptized on the 27th of this month! We are waiting a little bit because she has to stop doing a could of things (Word of Wisdom-_-) But she is amazing! I love the Lessons with her so much! Just so you guys know she was the contact that Elder Toolson did the day Elder Toolson Left!! We are thinking that we are going to be able to baptize her whole family too! We just have to talk to them! They work a lot so they aren't usually home:( But we are working on it!! Also David is going to get baptized this Saturday!! Elder Toolson and I also found him the week he left! He is 10 and is the funniest kid I have ever met hahaha!!!! He's super chubby and he always talks about how much he loves to eat and he plans and gaining more weight hahaha!! We actually have a cita with them tonight:) This Saturday at 5 he is going to be baptized! So everyone pray that the plans that we have will actually happen:) Well that's about it for this week!
