Week 37: El Nino

Hi again!  

Another week has flown by.  We had changes this week.  And I stayed in my same area.  6 more weeks in Chivopango!  (note: it's actually called Ilopango, but we call it Chivopango because it's super chivo (cool) to get to be in this zone).

Reason for the title: I've mentioned that it's wintertime here, and it's raining a lot.  Or what I thought was a lot.  Turns out that we are experiencing the meteorological phenomenon known as El Niño right now.  For the meteorologically challenged, El Niño means that it doesn't rain much.  But my poor desert-dweller brain thinks that one torrential downpour a week is a ton of rain.  Turns out that we should be getting a torrential downpour every day.  Next year is gonna be really fun.

So my new companion is Elder Juarez.  You're probably thinking that with a name like Juarez that he's Mexican.  And you're dead wrong.  He's actually from Nicaragua.  But don't feel bad, everyone here thinks the same thing.

We've been working like crazy this week, and we are reaping the blessings.  

Top three missionary moments this week:
3. A guy who was super negative when we contacted him a couple of weeks ago asked us about the difference between gifts of the Holy Ghost and the gift of the Holy Ghost, and accepted our offer to teach him.
2. We contacted one of the neighbors, who actually are inactive members, and had a powerful lesson with them.  And we have a Family Home Evening planned with them tonight.
1. One of our investigators accepted a baptism date!  He really liked what he saw in church on Sunday, and wants to get baptized!

That's all I have time for today.  Keep on being awesome!
