Well kids, this week came and gone and with it...
And now in el 21 de Octubre we have been blessed to have the presence of Hermana Groll! And hermana Carias lived her dream of finally going to Choluteca with Hermana Flynn :)
Dats about Hermana Groll:
-from Northern Virginia
-studied at the BY
-is going to be a teacher of Mathematics
-is a lover of chocolate chip cookies, brownies, and fresh mangos
-patiently listens to all of my stories
-and served in MiraFlores with Hermana Zarate after I left :)
We are so happy to be together!
We came together to the mission, so we were already friends in the CCM and will be going home at the same time!
In the short time we've been together we've managed to..
-say goodbye to President Hernandez. At changes we always have a big meeting so we had it this time and then when it ended everyone walked in and we were all singing and everyone had posters and other things for President and his wife. There were so many tears but also so much happiness that they were able to end on a good note. President Bowler flies in TODAY. Welcome to Honduras!
-learn how to make flour tortillas. We were walking and we asked an hermana if she needed help so we go in and it turns out that she works at a baleada restaurant that is SUUPER famous! Her only day off is on Thursday though, so we'll have to go back this Thursday so we can talk to her more! We had so much fun and now she says I'm all ready to teach my parents in Africa ;)
-We walked our entire area in the pouring rain. Some members came to pick us up to take us to their house for dinner and they just say, "hermanas, you got a little wet." We just laughed. Hermana Groll confided in me that she loves the rain and so we happily walked together smiling at everyone in our path.
Every day everyone sees how happy we are- happy because we are in the work of the Lord! There is so much to do every day, so many people to see, and it is oh, so exciting! I am so happy to be here, working where there are so many ready and willing to listen to us. It is such a great time to be alive, to be young, and to be a missionary in Honduras!
Love you all! :)
