Well life in Jalapa has become a routine. There's nothing new or exciting just same old same old. Contacting, teaching, finding, bringing people to church, family home evenings, visiting converts and members, getting soaked in the rain, fellowship nights, divisions with other missionaries, waking up at 6:30 and going to bed at 10:30, etc. Life is great and I am still learning and growing a lot. Do not think however that it is boring because it is not, I just do not know what to write. I am kind of hoping that here in 2 weeks I will have changes to change things up a little. I would like to finish my mission in the capital but we will see what happens.
We set up a competition between the organizations to see who can bring the most less actives or investigators to the fellowship nights or to church and we set up a point system and everything. The organization with the most points will get a prize at the end of the month. The area has picked up and we are seeing a lot of success too.
Yesterday we saw a miracle. Yesterday the bishop was in charge of giving us lunch and to our disappointment he gave us two tamales each and some bread to bring home and heat up. Why were we disappointed you might ask. Well it is because tamales and bread are not very filling. After about an hour we were hungry again with no food in the house and being Sunday we could not go out and buy food. We were hoping and praying that someone would give us food later in the day. Then out of nowhere during our studies the phone rang and a member called us to invite us to dinner, something that NEVER happens here nor has happened to me in my entire mission. We were saved!!! At 7:30 we had an amazing dinner of beans, eggs, cream, cheese and bread. I testify that God does hear and answer our prayers and does care about the little things in our life!
Having the best day of his life,
