This has been the fastest week of the mission so far! Probably because we did divisions with Santo Domingo Wednesday and Thursday. Divisions is when you switch companions for a day or two. So, I went up to Santo Domingo which is about 30 minutes up the mountain in the back of a pick-up truck. The Elder I was with, Elder Toolson, has been out even less time than I have. That being said, we are both still in the process of learning Kekchi and can’t teach without our companions. Nevertheless we by some miracle made it through two lessons with what we do know! During my time in Santo Domingo I locked us in their room in the back of the church and taught him all the Kekchi I know. Being a teacher helped me learn more than I think I taught him, it was a cool experience to teach and solidify some of what I’ve learned.
A few of us missionaries got together this week and burnt a shirt for Elder Helton´s one year mark! We had a good time and bought a nice cake, which was quickly devoured. Nothing too new this week in La Tinta. We discover and explore our area more each day and are finding more people that want to learn the gospel! Hard work is the only way to have success and boy are we working hard! Hopefully we´ll have a few more of our investigators baptized by the end of this change. It’s awesome to be part of such a divine work, I’m thankful for this opportunity every day.
