Numero 47

Hey fam! Another week down and another week to go! It was a good week here in Puerto Cabezas.

FIrst off, President came over here again. He came here for interviews and to see how the branches are doing here. In my interview he gave me some good ideas on how to plan. I have definitely learned how important it is to have plans. WIthout plans we just have dreams. If we want to do the Lord's work here we need to plan in his way, name by name, investigador by investigador. I feel like when I get home this will help me in my life because I am learning how to be organized and to have a plan with what I do.
I got a good story to tell this week. So on Friday I got a call from Elder Jacobsen. He called me and told me that a guy named Eddie was about to be baptised this last Saturday. Eddie was an investigador that Elder Jacobsen and I had when we were in Rosario. We worked with him so hard to get him baptised but he just didnt take the step. He always went to church and always told us how he just needed more time and needed to learn more. Well, about 10 months later he finally got baptised. I was so happy to get that call. Sometimes we as missionaries just plant the seeds and then someone else gets to see the fruits. The Lord has a plan for everyone and has a time for everyone. When Elder Jacobsen and I were teaching him it just wasnt his time. Pretty cool story.

My comp was super sick this week. Everyone gets sick when they come here to Puerto because of the well water and the different food. It hit my comp pretty hard. He had the double headed dragon for a whole day. We lost like 2 days in our area because he was so sick. It was bad. I felt so bad for him. He is feeling better now and now he is all accostomed to Puerto now.
We saw a cool little miracle this week. So with him being sick, we didnt have time to go get investigadors to bring them to church. So we were going to end up with 0 investigadors in church. We only passed by for 2 people and they told us no, but in the afternoon 6 of our investigadors that we had showed. We were so happy that even though my comp was sick and he could barely walk that we still had 6 investigadors in church. It was a nice little miracle that God gave us.

Well, thats all I got for you guys this week. I am good. My miskito is getting better, i actually taught a half lesson in miskito this week :)

I hope everyone has a great week!

Elder Sherle
