For PDay we went and hung out with some members today, the big dude Douglas and his brother. He lives close by, return missionary, and idk hes just like a really solid dude and I get along with him and his family really well so they invite me over for pancakes (also did that today) and we told him we were going to another town and so he said he would take us. Douglas and his brother are both pretty funny.... his brother speaks like perfect english so its fun. We went to a nearby town called Progresso, took me to the mall and got some shoes... went to burger king.... the usual. I saw some teens from new Zealand traveling through Honduras scuba diving.... gave me a good idea of what to do here when we come back....
lol almost ran over an igunana today! Douglas drove us through the airport just to make us homesick lol and we were on this long road leading to the airport so we were booking down it cuz no one was there, then he just slams on the brakes and stops right in front of a iguana that didn't even flinch.
Here's a sucky situation that need our prayers:
One of the families we visit has a 12 year old daughter... and she may have gotten taken by some gang dudes... kinda a crappy situation because out here there isn't much they can do.... most of the criminal groups out here are better organized than the police... not much they can do out of fear for the rest of the family.... kinda violent out here.
We have come across a ton of solid investigators and went from 5 people with baptismal dates to 12. We are working on getting them to church..... We are coming across a lot of good families and investigators! Jose has got a baptismal date for the 16th and we are planning on doing it so hopefully all goes well. We had like 8 investigators go to church.
