Número 34- Staying in Ocotal

Whats up fam!
This week was alright, nothing to crazy happened or anything. It was a pretty normal week for us.
I heard duke comment on that. You all know I am a North Carolina fan. I really thought that Wisconsin was going to win that game. I wish I couldve watched it. I heard it was a pretty good game though. 
Changes: Something I never guessed but my comp and I are staying together for another six weeks. I wouldve never guessed that. My comp and I already have 3 months together and Presidente Collado never leaves a companionship longer than 3 months together. I guess he feels that there is a reason for us to be here together for 6 weeks longer. I am excited to be with Elder Lainez for another 6 weeks. We get along real well together. He is a cool kid. My spanish is going to be so good too because I will have more than 4 months with just spanish. 
We are getting into the hot season now here in Ocotal. The cool thing with that is its mango season now. There are a ton of mango trees just in the street and in peoples houses so we have been eating a ton of mangos this past week. I feel like a straight monkey peeling it haha because we just peel it with our mouths and eat it like a straight monkey. They are good though. A bunch of people are making mango juice now and I love it so much. 
Having a little over 8 months in the mission I have realized that I just love helping people, especially here. The people here are so humble and I love it when I am able to help people out and put a smile on their face. We had a lot of little oportunities to help people out this week. It just makes me feel so good that even if it is just 10 minutes of our time, it can make someone so happy. Being a missionary, it isnt just preaching about Jesus Christ, it is about serving the people too. 
We are teaching a super cool family named Emilio and Corina. They are a working to get baptised here soon. They are so humble and so willing to learn about the gospel. They need to get married but we are planning on doing their wedding in the church this weekend. Its always the way of God but I am praying that they will be able to get baptised this weekend too. 
I am doing good here in Ocotal. I love it here. I know that our Savior can help us through our problems in life and he can give us comfort through our trials. I hope everyone remembers that He is the reason why we are here.
I love you all. I hope you all have a great week!

John says this is how bus rides are wherever they go. 
Ok.... Now I see why he has his key latched to his belt loop. :)
