Well, it’s just been a great time up in Semarac this week! This whole last month actually! Even though there was a week in where we were pretty dang sick I’ve still enjoyed every moment of it. Its gone faster than anything I’ve ever experienced. My companion is awesome and is so fun to work with. I enjoy teaching him Kekchi, its an interesting thing teaching someone my third language in my second language. My Spanish has really moved up a notch this month, speaking and telling stories and basically everything I want to communicate comes out of my mouth with minimal mistakes and an improving accent. How could I not understand it before?! We are starting to have more success her in the work, we have a lot of people lined up ready to accept this beautiful gospel and be baptized unto repentance. There should be baptism photos in next weeks update! I’m loving my time in Semarac and I’m just trying to cherish it because even though its a demanding area its great in so many other ways and I know it cant last forever here so I’m trying to make the most of it. I find myself struggling to find things to write home to you guys, I feel like my pictures explain everything so much better than I could. Nothing much changes in the week to week life of a missionary. I’ve read emails from missionaries explaining all their investigators and their problems and it honestly its boring to read, not to mention that those kind of things should a lot of the times be kept private in between the missionary and person that is investigating. When I baptize somebody or I have an awesome story having to do with someone and their conversion then I will write about it.
Something fun did happen this last week. We met our Zone Goals last month so we got to have a zone activity. We all piled into the back of a pickup truck and went to Semuc Champane! (Look it up, its awesome) It’s from there that I took most of the pictures I sent this week. It was such a fun day with the Zone.
Listen up everyone! You need to know that I believe with all my heart in the work that I am taking part of here in Guatemala. I know I have been called to serve here in place of My Savior and that it is important to do my best and represent Him as a missionary. I’m here to bring as many people to the knowledge of the Gospel as I can and if I can help some of you that aren’t here in Guatemala but are reading this blog to have the slightest stroke of desire to learn for yourselves that what I’m saying is true than that would satisfy the purpose of why I made this blog in the first place and literally fill me with joy.
Thanks for keeping up on my time here serving the Lord.
