Numero 82 ~ Chinandega Semana Santa

Hey fam! Its been a good one down here in Nicaragua. 

We had another baptism this week. His name is Jonathan. It was a cool baptism. He even went to church in a white shirt and tie to get confirmed. He is a cool dude. 
We had 6 investigadors in church this week too which was really good. For this week we have 3 possibilities. All 3 of them went to church this week. We were really happy to see them come to church again. We thought only one was going to come because we hadnt seen the other two the whole week but they all showed up. 
This week we did divisions with the zls. When we do divisions with the zls both of us have to go to their area so we both left for a full day this week. It was good though. I love working with missionaries that arent my companion because you can always learn something new working with other missionaries. I worked with a guy named Elder Knight. He is from Virginia and he came with me. The thing is we have never been in the same zone until now so it was cool to work together. We had a good time and we worked hard. 
On Friday, President came to Chinandega and we did a practice with him in the morning. He taught us some good stuff about teaching and how we can make our teaching better and to be able to see more investigadores in the church. One thing I liked that he told us is that we need to really focus on the needs of our investigadors and focus on the specific promises that the lord has made so that the investigadors feel the need to act and keep the commandments. Its really true because no one really does anything without a motive to get something out of it. We come on the mission because of the promises that the profets have made us and its the same with investigadors. They can come to know of the promises of the Lord. 
We are working hard here. This week is what is called "Semana Santa" or Holy Week. Its a really crazy week in central america. A lot of people go to the beach and go on vacation. They do some big activites and celebrate everyday this week. And its known as one of the hottest weeks of the year so we will see how that goes haha
I love you all! Have a great week!
