Old friends

I have a picture for you! I have a new companion! Elder Albert got emergency changes late Thursday night. This is my new companion. Elder Banks!! ANOTHER GRINGO!! He has 19 months in the mission. He is from Washington. I never ever thought we would ever be companions. I have known him ever since I got to the mission.

I don’t know if you remember… but I was teaching a family in Momos called Ana and Leonel. We worked very hard with them… and we nearly got them married… but then I got changes and they never got baptized. So get this, I saw Elder Hendrickson in Xela today, and he told me that Leonel, the husband wants me to baptize him! He is getting baptized this Saturday! So I am going back to Momos this Saturday to be a part of this baptism!! I am so excited !!! =D All of that work is finally paying off!

Speaking of friends from Momos, Magdalena found out where my area was (weird) and visited me this week! She said hi, and told me that everyone in Momos misses me, and she gave me 2 corte ties that say Templo de Honduras on it!! Hahaha… I thanked her for them and told her that I’d wear them. Hopefully I can find a good tailor that can change the word Honduras to Guatemala.

Here is another picture. It is of a famous figure here in Guatemala called Tecum Uman. He is like the Paul Bunyan of Guatemala. This statue is of him, and it is famous all around Guatemala. The name Tecun Uman is very similar to Teancum from the Book of Mormon, so all of us missionaries call him Teancum. Enjoy a bit of Chapin culture!
