Here I am with Elder Hendrickson, Obourn, and McGrath. Easily some of my best buddies in the mission. Obourn and Hendrickson are zoneleaders in a place called Totonicapán. They brought matching ties to the last Zone Leader Meeting, as well as McGrath and I. It was ultra cute. =)
Changes are tomorrow, so we as a zone ate Chinese food together! It was a lot of fun.
Fun story about this old woman. She was baptized 45 years ago. Barely speaks Spanish. Is endowed, and sealed to her family, attends every Sunday, her son died a few years ago, and her recompense was Q70,000. She paid Q7,000 for her tithing of course, and when she handed it to the bishop at that time, he told her that it would be better for her to keep it since she is now widowed, and without children, and that it would help her live. She then responded, ”Don’t rob me of my blessings from God.” And gave him the money. I have never met a more faithful woman here. She is 80 something years old, and this week I recorded her testimony in Ki’ché, and took this picture. Just a little cultural snidbit of Momos.
I think I just found out who my companion is going to be. Until I know for sure, I’ll tell you next week =)
