Y entonces!! Como estan todos?
Well, i dont know if this week got any better, but it happens. I am staying positive. 
This week we had to go down to Managua for a new persons meeting for my Elder Lainez. It was so weird being there as the "senior comp" because I feel like it was just yesterday that I was in my training. It was a cool meeting though. Presidente Collado talked with us and changed some things of the mission. We are going to start working a lot more with the members here and we are starting to ask for a lot more references. We are starting this plan that he has for us this week so my comp and I are pretty excited to see what happens. Also, I got to see a couple dudes from my district from the MTC that are training too and we got to catch up a little bit. 

hmmm something funny that happened this week. We were contacting and we contacted this house and a guy came out and so we just started talking to him like normal and then randomly he just points to his 2 chickens and says "You dont allow this in your religion, huh?" and I thought he was talking about if we can eat chicken. So I told him of course we can eat chicken in our religion and then he says to me "No, you guys dont allow that they fight eachother?" haha this dude was asking me if cockfighting is against our religion haha. So I asked him if he thought it was bad and he said yes its bad but its the only way to have fun here. So he went in to explaining to us all the things he does to train these chickens. It is a very strict routine that these chickens have to go through to be able to be ready to kill eachother haha so we just told him that we should be involved in that kind of stuff and there are other ways to have fun. It was such a random question and I was so thrown off. He wasnt even scared to tell me that either, haha these nicas crack me up. 
Douglas came to church this week again. He is having problems with his wife right now and they need some time to get things figured out, so we will see what happens with them. We are praying for them that they will be able to work things out here soon. 

As of right now, we are struggling a little bit. We have taught a lot of lessons and havent seen the success we want. We have been able to get into a lot of doors but almost all of the people do not want to progress. We were a little down this week because of that. But I have trust in the Lord. I know that if I do my part, he will provide the way for us. I know that the Lord is a Lord of miracles and he is always more than willing to help us, we just need to put in our part. I know he will bless us, but maybe right now we just need to show a little bit more faith. 
I am working hard here in Sebaco.  
I love you all. Have a great week.
Elder Sherle
