so yeah - robbed at gunpoint *
we were walking home on tuesday night and it was late..... we were on a main street but there is like a quater mile where there are no lights..... anyways we were walking and i hear a motorcycle pull up behind me and come to a stop..... and yeah i kinda figured what was going to happen next.... but i was really hoping they were members of the church saying hey or something but no. So they were 2 guys.... and the dude on the back pulls out a pistol and tells me to give him everything i had...... and starts cussing and screaming in english.... so at least he was nice enough to yell at me in my own language.... anyways i was actually really lucky because we were traveling and shopping a lot on Tuesday because we went out of our small city, and all day i had been carrying around 2000 lempiras but in the afternoon i dropped my wallet and everything off at the house and was only carrying 40 lemps...... which is less than 2 dollars. so when he pointed the gun at me i just handed him the 40 lemps i had.... there was no light so he couldn't see that i literally gave him chump change..... and then he turned to my comp, Who decided to play mr. tough guy and told him he didn't have anything about three times..... so the guy gets off the bike, smacks the plate of food he was eating out of his hand and then kicks him over..... and my comp finally gave up his wallet.... and they told us to get down.... and drove off.....so yeah.... got my life threatened over 2 dollars.... and my comp almost screwed us over 5 dollar max.....and i guess i got really lucky because i didn't get searched or anything..... had my camera in my bag but i just gave em my money and they left me alone. It was bound to happened...... just makes me annoyed with this country.
went on divisions - this week was a bummer basically were gunna have three baptisms between this last week and this week and all have fallen because these people don't understand that when i say you cant live in fornication.... it doesnt mean go and move in with someone after i teach it...
We got to see the set up and parts of the carnival and got free breakfast!
I got a waffle maker for 4 bucks but idk if it works well!
but heres for the good news...Went to the local fair!
Basically like disney but run by a 12 year old...
*once again... I do not like these stories...but it is a gentle reminder that the Lord is watching over these valiant servants. That our constant prayers for safe keeping do not go unanswered. I'm so grateful for his positive attitude in stressful times. (Mom)
