Stake President Meeting, Hipica

Me with a new chocoyo.
Familia y Amigos,

This week was pretty chill, not a ton of stuff happened, but all went well. Here’s what happened.

Tuesday I went and did divisions in this area called La Concepcion (or as the gente say La Concha).  It was a very interesting day.  The area is known as one of the castigo (punishment) areas of the mission and the missionaries there are not doing the best, so I went and tried to help out but not much got done.  It was a hard day but there wasn’t much we could do. The people were nice and I got a whole bag of oranges and a huge aguacate. Hahah that was fun.

Wednesday we dropped Elder Lambson off in Diriamba and worked the day in our area because we had a meeting with the Stake President and President Russell. During the day we felt like we should visit this less active that we had only visited one time before.  She told us that we were angels because the only 2 times we had come had been when she most needed it.  That was an awesome experience. It was a really cool meeting and we just discussed the progress of the stake.  The stake is doing great so there were no problems. They might put a rama (branch) in San Rafael del Sur as well which would be really cool!

Thursday was a normal day in the area, and Friday I went and interviewed everyone that we have for this Saturday. I love baptismal interviews because the spirit is always so strong.  Love doing them.

Saturday was the adult’s session of stake conference and there was a 70 visiting, Elder Arredondo and we were able to bring some investigators.  It didn’t turn out that great. We got everyone ready for church.

Sunday was the general session and the ward left late so we got the very back of the stake center seats and we couldn’t really hear and there were a lot of distractions. But it is all good.  We headed back to San Marcos and finished out the week of work.  But it was something called la Hipica.  Pretty much everyone comes in from out of town with their horses, they set up beer tents all over the park and everyone gets wasted (including the horses) so we tried to stay away from there.  It was huge. Pobre horses.....

Sorry none of that was too exciting but I hope that you all have a great week. Thanks for all you do!!
