San Pedro Sula, Cortés, Honduras (Las Brisas Ward)
Viva Las Brisas!
How's it going everyone? We're doing good here in El Barrio Las Brisas. This area is so much different from the other areas I've been in, but I'm loving it. This week was transfers and we have some crazy changes that are happening in our zone! We have three areas that are being opened and added to our zone. So now we're going to have 22 missionaries in the zone. One district of 10 and the other district of 12 missionaries. These are really huge districts! But it should be awesome. The work is progressing which is why more areas are being opened up. I'm happy because I'm staying with the same companion Elder Pérez and he's awesome. We're doing great and the people in our area are progressing.
Nuvia Ortiz is doing awesome! She is so sincere and so ready to make a covenant with God. She has made so many changes in her life and she is keeping the commandments. She is reading the Book of Mormon and having many spiritual experiences. I'm so grateful that the Lord has given us the opportunity to teach her. She is just a huge blessing. There are a few obstacles in the way of her getting baptized right now but we're praying for a miracle and hoping that everything falls into place.
We're preparing for a big missionary conference that we're going to have with almost the entire mission. Our Area Geenral Authority President (Elder Juan Uceda) will be at the conference. It will be on August 30 and it should be a great learning experience. We are also practicing the song "Go Forward with Faith" to sing with a small choir in the conference. I will be playing the piano in the choir and it should be an awesome experience! Lots of good things are going on here and I'm so grateful for the opportunity to be out here working in the Lord's vineyard.
