Do what's right and you will be happy!!!

Hey! I have to be really quick! But this week was interesting!! We had an emergency change in the house and Elder Richards left and we have Elder Kaufusi here with us now. But things are going good. No changes for this change!

Today we woke up at 4 today... my comp went to use the bathroom and when he put his foot down on the ground... his foot was ankle high in water. Our house flooded and we live on the second story. One of the bathroom pipes broke in our house and there was water EVERYWHERE!!! our neighbors were not happy! So we spent all morning cleaning...

I am a little sick, and we got an emergency call from a member in the hospital. We got special permission to go in the actual hospital and give a blessing to a member in a coma. Crazy experience. 

Also Saturday we went to blue hole which is SUPER PRETTY!!! Just so tempting as a missionary...you all have no idea... I almost jumped in... haha but besides that...things are great!!

We had a family pray and ask God if this was the true church and they all said that they got an answer that this is the true church! They have been twice already now. Please pray for Deleo and Dalea and Daniel. They need to get married and then we will see if we can get them baptized!

But thank you for all that you guys do!! Wish my mom a SUPER HAPPY BIRTHDAY tomorrow!! SHE IS THE BEST!!! Also I tried cutting my hair by myself... I miss my mom!! bahahah But take care everyone!! HAVE A GREAT WEEK!!!! DO WHAT'S RIGHT AND YOU WILL BE HAPPY!!!

Our cute friend Jordan sent her girl scout project to Brandon for the children in Belize!  They loved making the darling craft she put together for them.

I tried cutting my own hair

 We went on an activity with the branch on Saturday to a place called bluehole

Fear not...

Hey this was an amazing week to be honest!! We had a cool branch activity on the beach and we cooked hotdogs and played games and had a fire on the beach. The following Sunday, the attendance, 37!!!! WOOHOO!!! haha that is so much! So things are going great!

We had interviews with president, that was amazing and a multizone! Things are going great!! I gave a talk this Sunday in church and my companion too gave an unprepared, unplanned English talk. He did good!!

We had a funny birthday surprise...we bought a cake on Saturday, and we set it up Sunday morning for Elder Merida with a 2 and 1 candle (we drew a 0 on a sticky note because he is only turning 20.. forgot to take a pictures haha) and we started singing happy birthday as he came out of the shower and he stopped us halfway through the song and said "guys guys...it's tomorrow..." and we all just paused their in silence...and then started laughing hahaha Elders these days... but we are celebrating his birthday kind of today!

And also I WANT TO WISH MY BROTHER A SUPER HAPPY LATE BIRTHDAY!!!! haha sounded fun... hehe but I can't believe he is taller than me when he is 15... I am 19...

But I have realized this week strongly and I have felt like the devil has more angles here in Dangriga and is taking control of everybody and I'm sure that the people in these branch feel hopeless sometimes... but I read a cool scripture. You all should look it up and it is very true and applies to us always. 2 Kings 6:16 :)  *"And he answered, Fear not: for they that be with us are more than they that be with them."

but anyways.. HAVE A FANTASTIC WEEK!!! DO WHAT IS RIGHT!!! And pray that our dog doesn't die... people are getting angry at it and it spent the night outside of our house and the librarian is angry because it keeps wanting to get in... also we went to the bank today and it wanted to go in and a police man hit it with the stick thing they have... haha please pray for orange.

how to get taller...

Hey things have been good this week! I have been super busy with tons of interchanges and tons of things we had to do. My comp had an infection and something to do with his lungs or something like that but he is back to normal right now!

I went on interchanges with an AP (assistant to the mission president) ...riding around in the car... lame haha :P No it was really cool, just the part that scared me was when he asked me something like "So how does it feel to have a ton of time in the mission" and that's when I realized...I have more time than him...not by a lot but still. Scary haha. But things are doing good.. baptizing is slow but reactivation is going so fast! I love it here!

Just money goes by so fast so I am eating macaroni and cheese with hot dogs every night!! I love it!! haha :P But...besides that, there is really not much to say! Enjoy the last bit of cold weather! Also if anybody knows how to get taller when you are 20 please let me know! haha
