Pday last week was the first with my new zone CAYO! It wasn't too shabby. I mean, we didn't do much
eventhough we all wanted to go to the Iguana exhibit but then our ZL's told us
it was $18 and ain't nobody got time fo dat... #DatBrokeLaif #MissionaryLaif.
We had Family Home Evening with the Sandoval and Moody fams and it was crazy! I
felt like I was at home again because of the sibling "love" that was
going on. I shared the "washing dishes" guessing story and noone had
heard it before #FirstTime and it felt good considering noone ever wanted to
share it at home hahaha #Overtold. And I can't think of any other ones for the
then Tuesday was good. It was raining but it wasn't too shabby. We went to
Belize City for the Leader's Meeting #GotDrenched. But had fun... Especially on
that 3 hour bus ride #TieTiePasi... But it was cool cos Maliga is in the
neighbouring zone and he was on it so that was good. We talked about just how
real Satan is and how he really is tricking people these days. Like for
example: how people don't wanna get married these days, how they're fine just
living in sin... they think that its correct. But then gay couples just HAVE TO
get married. Why? SATAN IS REYAAAALL!!
I had a good conversation with a member named Brother Don who is originally
from Texas and said that he had the opportunity to go to Australia
when he was young but he rejected it and now he regrets it. He wanted to see
the "glowing red rock" he called it. He was talking about Ayers Rock.
But now he thinks its too late cos he is old but #ItsNeverTooLate... He said
that his Dad told him when he was younger
to read, you learn the world..."
He seems like a wise guy. I also watched the 12 steps to
recovery program this week. OH MY GOSH BECKY!!! I cried like no other... That
ish is REYAAALLL! #ShowMyBrothers.
Thursday we had Zone Conference and
my Zone Leaders are CRAYCRAY! For realzies... I mean, I love them BUT I'm a tad
confused. They're heaps spiritual and all but they're CRAZY! So I don't know
when they're being serious or not. But I love the Cayo Zone so much! We talked
about a basketball player named Jeremy Lin and how he was like a one shot
wonder. And how we need to try how hardest in our work because we can be like
him in the way we work and just make miracles... #AllWeDoIsLinLinLin. So Cayo
has 5 companionships: 2 here in Santa Elena, 2 in San Ignacio and then 1 in
Bullet Tree. We have a lot of fun as a zone and GET WORK DONE! ;)
Friday we had interviews with President. OMG!!! I can't even
express just how much I love my mission parents! They finish in June and it
sucks so bad. Leata was so right when she told me that "you're not called
to your mission, you're called to your mission President". I LOVE HIM
HEAPS AND HEAPS!!! So he made me make 2 videos while I was in my interview... 1
for Mum and Dad and one for Kava cos I begged him to send me back to El Salvs
to see her before she finishes (cos she finishes this change :'|) so he
recorded me and told me to say things for them. So he'll send that to you
Mumma. #BeReady ahhaha! He also made me a deal... no get ready for this one
Daddy... I asked him if he'll come to my wedding and he said he
will come if I marry a Tongan HAHAHAHA!!!! We shook on it too... But then I told Sister Hintze
that my Dad would kill me if I marry a Tongan and she said that he doesn't need
to be a Tongan, that they'll come either way hahaha! I love them so much!!! I
also begged him to let me die in Ayutuxtepeque, he took notes and so I'm
wishing and hoping... But yeah, Friday was a GREAT day! I love Prez so freaking
Saturday, I also saw a lot this week... Satan is hitting
and targeting families HARD! It sucks so bad, but like almost every
household we entered this week was full of contention. Cussing and arguments. 1
of the investigators that we have was threatening his sister with a machete...
it was so sad! I just sat there with my comp like awkies... I was like
#Memories... JOKES JOKES haha. But honestly, it is sad!!! He's breaking them
And then bendito Sunday!!!
My least favourite day on the mission hahaha jokes.
#BuhReally... I spoke in my new branch. I spoke about general conference so
that was fun. There are a lot of old white men in my branch #JustARandomFact...
But I already love this branch heaps. I love the Gospel because it is the same
everywhere. I am so blessed to have this truth in my life. I am also the
Chorister here too. I feel like wherever I go, they catch me...
#AllIDoIsLinLinLIn... jokes. Also visited a member named Brother
Griffith and he is just THE BEST! He is 94 years old and loves to sing!
I love him to death and wish I met my grandpas but I found a few here on the
mish. So I don't feel sorry for myself lol. I love him though!
Anyways, I should probably go now and do some... Pday stuff...
hahaha! I love you guys so much!!! And I'll see you in like... 5 months???
hahahaha #NotBaggy. The church is true, live it like you believe it. WORK WITH
THE MISSIONARIES!!!! I love yous heaps!!!
