I am officially 20 years old. That seems super old! For the first time in seven years I'm not a teenager! That's crazy. But it's also good. Well, nothing has changed at all, jaja, but it was a really good week! Here, let me tell you about it.
So on Tuesday we went to Tegucigalpa for Consejo, just like at the beginning of every month. But it was different this time, because it was my birthday! The guys here in the mission made it a really good one! We got to the Assistentes house and they had a cheesecake waiting for me! IT WAS SOO GOOD!!! And they all sang happy birthday to me. After that we all went to Denny's and because it was my birthday I got a free Grand Slam! That was also delicious! They made my birthday really good!
The next day was Consejo. My zone baptized the second most in the mission! I was happy about that, but the bad thing was that it wasn't even a really good month for us... the mission just did really bad. But that's ok, we took second! Consejo was really good, we came back fired up like normal to get the whole zone working harder and trying to be better. But the best part of that day was that after Consejo we got to stay the night for a temple trip the next day, so we had the whole afternoon free! I went with the other Elder Smith to visit VILLA VIEJA!!! It was so good to see everyone again! That was a huge blessing from the Lord!
Then we were able go to to the temple with the whole zone and two other zones. The temple is so amazing! The promises and blessings that we receive in them are just unbelievable. There is real power in those covenants that we make. We need to do our best to keep those covenants. Then we had a long drive back to the South.
It was a really busy week! But it was a good one too. I hope you all had a great week too! And I hope this next week is even better! Atta boy Dad, keep your team rollin'! Mom keep the school year going great for the second half! Stef, keep getting good grades! Rachel and George, keep working and stuff! And to everyone else, good luck with whatever it is you're doing. I love you all!
