This past week was pretty good. We have started to get a lot more investigators. They all seem positive, but they don't really want to make the effort to go to church. Hopefully soon they will start going to church.
Yesterday (S) was stake conference for all of the members in Leon NIcaragua and its surrounding cities. We were supposed to leave on a bus that came from Momotombo to pick us up at to go to Leon. But the bus came late so like 8 people went home. And most were investigators! So we ended up just going 5 of us. And that stake conference was easily the most boring meeting in my entire life! Even more boring than when I didn't understand any Spanish at the start of my misson. Everyone was bored that they just started talking and we couldn't really hear the speaker after a bit. But I guess I lived.
, the day went well, and we had some good lesson. But when we got home that night at like , a members 10 year old son called us and told us to hurry over to give his mom a blessing cuz she was really sick. So we went over, and apparently she had like a mini heart attack, and it was just her and her son. She was in really bad shape when we showed up. We gave her a quick blessing and she could start to look better immediately. She stopped shaking, crying, and mostly hurting. It was a cool experience to see the priesthood working that quickly. The next day she was up and living normal life. it's like it never even happened.
On Friday we went to visit a family that we had been teaching for a few weeks. A mom and her 17 year old son. But when we showed up, the mom was really sad. We asked her why and she said that her son died the day before from a heart attack. (There are surprisingly a lot of heart attacks here) So we talked about the Plan of Salvation with her. She seemed a bit happier after that.
Also, on Friday we ate Elote loco, or crazy corn. It is corn on the cob with cheese, butter, ranch, BBQ, and Mayo. It is really really good. But when we were talking with the dude that made them, I told him that I wanted chile, cuz I always want chile now a days. But this dude put SO MUCH CHILE! It was burning my mouth and my lips. I managed to eat all of it though.
On Thursday we were in the house getting ready to leave and this random number called us and when we answered, it was a member from Leon. She told us that the wife of her son (a member) wants to start taking the lessons from us after being married for 2.5 years. We were really happy, cuz she is cool, just has always been catholic. When we went to teach her, her mom passed by (she is super catholic) and started yelling at her that she is catholic and that we are of the devil and a whole bunch of stuff. The daughter started crying, and went over to her mom and let her have it. It was cool. Hopefully she can be a strong member some day.
On Wednesday we went to Chinandega for the Multi-zone meeting. It went well, but on the way back it was the strongest thunderstorm I have seen. The night was lit up just by straight lightning. We almost missed the last bus back to our area that night. But we caught it right as it was leaving!
That is about it, crazy week. but it was good.
Till next week.
