March 21, 2016

     It was another pretty great week here in Guate!!! It's really starting to get hot, what with the Semana Santa in full swing with all the activities going on here. Everyone is now a die hard Catholic and doesn't want anything until next week and even the people who aren't Catholic say they;re busy and can't listen to us this week, but I'm confident that we'll be able to have tons of success this week as long as we work hard and focus on what's really important. But anyway funny story, so last week on Monday, we were changing into our clothes to go and play soccer and when we came out this crazy guy had snuck his way into the church and it took us forever to get him out.  We got him out after bribing him with a quet and threatening to call the police because he tried to steal a poster from the church lobby. After that it was a pretty normal day. We played soccer and all that jazz.  Tuesday we had the distinct councils and worked super hard like normal. Wednesday,  I was on divisions with Elder Wood and we had a pretty amazing day. I got to do some baptismal interviews with a family of investigators in San Jose and it went really well. The entire family got baptized yesterday. Thursday, we did divisions as well and I was with Elder Hailstone and we pretty much just spent the entire day contacting and visiting members. Hermana Sandra couldn't come to church Sunday because one of her sons was sick so we had to move they're fechas to Sunday not Saturday which was too bad but not the end of the world. They're still going to get baptized for sure. Saturday I had this guy go crazy on me, he was pretty drunk and I'm pretty sure he was a gangster judging by all the tattoos he had on his arms.  He spoke pretty good  English and started yelling a bunch of bad words at me, which I'm pretty used to by now but after that he started threatening me and said he would be waiting there when I came back. So obviously, we couldn't go back that way, so to get out of there we ended up jumping over a river and taking a secret back way to go to lunch. This Friday, Guatemala plays against the USA to see who will go to the world cup so that's going to be pretty crazy, Anyway that's pretty much my week. Sounds like you guys had lots of fun and Dad I think you will have to take us back to Cancun for sure. Love you all and hope you have a great week. 

P.S. Elder Gudiel is applying to USU and needs a sponsor family so if you guys know a family that would be willing to put like 8000 dollars in a bank account to sponsor a really amazing kid from Honduras let me know. 

Crazy guy in the church and my new name tag.
