Numero 66 ~ Thanksgiving Crepes

Pamiliki nahki sa? Pain baman!
Miskito is so hard! But im getting a little bit down!
We had a decent week here in Puerto!
Well this week was Thanksgiving. The best thing was Thanksgiving fell on Thursday which is weekly planning day so we got our district together with another district in the zone and we had a cool little activity in the morning at church. We decided to do a breakfast. So my comp likes to cook so he decided to make everyone crapes! We got there early and starting busting out crapes for everyone! We had to make 42 crapes! I say we because helped crack the eggs and mix and helped prepare so i took part in the action too! haha also the sister missionaries made bananna shakes and some other elders made hashbrowns! It was a good little breakfast! I had never really had crapes before but they were really good! I put a lot of powdered sugar and syrup and all that good stuff on it so it was a nice treat! Then we all planned together and just chilled for a little bit. It was pretty good for what we got here in Nicaragua so we were really grateful.
In the Thanksgiving spirit, I want to tell you guys that I am so thankful for all the help you have given me and all the love you have shown me. I am most grateful for my Lord and what he did for me and the oportunity I have to serve him and his children. The best thing about this Thanksgiving was knowing that the next one I will be with my family :)
This week we did better than last week. We thought we were going to have a baptism but they needed more time. So we will see how they keep progressing. We were very successful at church. We brought 5 of the people who we have on date to church. We were really happy to see them show up to church. We had 3 others go so in total we had 8 investigadors at church this week and we have 6 people on baptismal date. There are two for this week. One is named Christian, he is to complete a family and another girl named Yaoska. She went to the baptism on Saturday to see what it was going to be like. We are praying hard that they will be able to be baptized this week. They both are really positive and seem pretty sure but we will see what happens!
We are now over 2 weeks over here without water. It is so awful. No one has water it seems like. We have had to go to our neighbors house and haul water from their well to our house to shower. I dont know what is going on but we are all dry. Because there is no water, everyone has to get water out of the wells but now the wells are drying up. If we go another week without water we will be in trouble. The people need there water and they dont have enough money to keep buying oney from the store. I heard some rumors that it should come back today or tomorrow but you just never know.
We had a miracle this week. So we did service this week at a members house but right before we left to go work over there we got a call from our president and he told us to go to the church because there was someone there that wanted to talk to us. So we went and we met this guy who literally went to the church because he wants to get baptized with his wife. They live in our area and we talked to them and he told us he wants to be good with God so he wants to get married and baptized. I felt a little weird that that would happen but he seems pretty real. They went to church this week and they loved it. So that was a big miracle that we saw this week! Pretty cool stuff.
Thats what I got for you guys this week! We are just a little closer to Christmas. There are a couple houses here that have put up Christmas lights! I love it! I cant wait for Christmas! JI think this week we are going to break out the Christmas music!
I hope everyone has a great week!
Much love,
Elder Sherle
