I have some really bad news for you guys... Mom this is gonna come as a shock to you.. But this past week I was walking down the dangerous streets of Honduras, down a back alley because we had to hurry back because we were out late teaching a lesson. And then a thug came out and totally shot me and I died. It was horrific...
Haha just kidding!!! I only said that cause Mom said she was worried. Funny right??!!?!? :):):) But mom, if you REALLY want to get worried just search "Honduras" on google. there´s actually an area in our mission where gringos aren´t allowed to go cause we´ll get capped! haha Anyways, lifes good here. The first two days were pretty tough for me. The first day I was like what the heck am I doing in Honduras right now? And I just felt really weird. Probably it was a mixture of sadness loneliness and homesickness, mixed with a little culture shock. And as you all know, I haven´t had emotions for at least 2 and a half years, so it was weird to finally feel them again. But I´m used to it now, and everything is all good! I´m pretty much adjusted by now. The hardest thing is waking up at 6:30 every morning and forcing myself to exercise, and then getting in the shower and forcing myself to dump`the first bucket of cold water on my head. Yeah, only cold water here. And we only have running water once every two days or so. We do have a shower head though! So when the water is running we can take a normal shower that´s cold. Well we might be able to take a warm one actually.. There´s an outlet in the shower and some wires that go to the shower head, so maybe those heat up the water. I haven´t tried it yet. I think ours might be broken. It seems dangerous to me anyways. But I guess whatever floats your boat! Or should I say: whatever warms your water! :)
I heard that we were on TV!! Is that true? On when vacations attack. You guys should look. Wow it´s weird how much I´m looking forward to reading your letters! Now I know how Curtis and Tyler always felt. Sorry for not writing you sometimes.. haha But seriously, you guys can send me super long letters if you want, I´m not opposed. :) My area is called Pedregal. It´s pretty small apparently. But I like it a lot! The members are all really nice, and we´re getting a bunch of investigators by knocking doors. The only problem is that they say we can come back but then don´t want us when we return! Those bums. It´s ok though, because if we taught them and then they rejected it, they would have a bigger condemnation! so I´m down with rejection. Ok here´s a newer, better address! actually it´s the same just much easier, so if you guys could fix it on my facebook and blog that´d be tight!!
