Day #720 | Week #102: Homeward Bound!

Mission Accomplished!

This last week was amazing! We had a multi-zone conference with President Bush and his wife. We were able to get to know them and hear some great talks that they had prepared. 

Also one of our companions, Elder Permenter, finished his mission so we saw him leave. The rest of the week we have done a ton of service. We helped three people move this week and while we were moving some investigators into their apartment, we found a blind girl named, Jensi. She is 12 years old and is super nice to us. She told us that she wanted us to take her to our church. So we guided her to the church and she stayed for all the meetings. She said that she loved it and wants to be baptized. 

My mission has been awesome! I can't believe that I'm writing my last letter while in Honduras. It has been an amazing experience and I am proud of all the service and help I could do in these two years. I hope that the little I've done will help others to grow and progress so that they can take on the work as well. 

Thanks to everyone and their support! You guys are awesome!!!

In the quiet misty morning
When the moon has gone to bed,
When the sparrows stop their singing
And the sky is clear and red

When the summer's ceased its gleaming
When the corn is past its prime,
When adventure's lost its meaning
I'll be homeward bound in time

Bind me not to the pasture
Chain me not to the plow
Set me free to find my calling
And I'll return to you somehow

If you find it's me you're missing
If you're hoping I'll return,
To your thoughts I'll soon be listening,
And in the road I'll stop and turn

Then the wind will set me racing
As my journey nears its end
And the path I'll be retracing
When I'm homeward bound again

Bind me not to the pasture
Chain me not to the plow
Set me free to find my calling
And I'll return to you... somehow


Day #713 | Week #101: 3 Baptisms

This week was cool, we had a ward activity and all the missionaries dressed up as a Book of Mormon character and gave a speech about each one and what that person did. 
We had a few investigators show up to the activity.
We also had 3 baptisms this week! A few young men that the missionaries had been teaching were ready, so we baptized them on Saturday. We have plans this week to have 4 baptisms, but we have to help them get married first. These people have been waiting three months, so hopefully everything works out well.  

One of my companions goes home this week, so it will just be two of us for a week until I go home.
