First things first. I just want to say I’m so extremely proud of Christian and I can’t even believe he’s going to the promised land of Argentina. Also grateful President Poncio let me be a part of that special moment for our family. Also thank you to all the people helping the kid get out there!
Anyway, here in Nicaragua, as you all know, April has been a really crazy month! The First of April our dear Prophet announced the Nicaragua temple and that was so crazy! So this month of April the whole mission with the members just kept working super super hard! And we were able to reach our goals and as a mission we were able to break the mission record!
This month Satan also was working very hard! This country has been in protests and everything and it’s gotten violent and they’ve been burning building and everything. One week of April even church was canceled in Managua and the rest of the places only had sacrament meeting. But even with that, we were still able to help lots of people enter the baptism waters!
This week we had Leaders Counsel and multi zone and President gave us a really cool talk called the Donaldson papers that is going to help our mission so much! I wish I had that paper at the beginning of my mission! It tells us all the things we are doing wrong and all the things we need to do right.
Right now we are teaching a super special hermano named Kevin. He’s one of the member’s boyfriend and we teach in the hermana’s house and it’s so quiet (not normal) so it’s so easy to feel the spirit and to teach by the spirit. He accepted a baptismal date for later this month and this Sunday he came to church! We also are working with another hermano that his son comes home from his mission next week! And I’m pretty sure he’s ready for his son to get home so he can also enter the baptismal waters!
My companion and I are trying really hard to stay motivated and find ways to give service! I really love my mission and I love this work. I know this is where I’m supposed to be and I love my Savior!
Love you all!
