Didn't Feel the Earthquake

Things are going great here! I love Peten!!!!!!! Today we had another great P-day in.....Tikal!!!! It was awesome and definitely worth it!!!!! And after that we ate in Pizza Hut which is awesome. There isn't fast food in Poptun. Different from the capital but the food is better than fast food. But one always misses the fast food haha.

 We did not feel the earthquake. Peten didn't receive anything so there's no need to worry. We're doing great here. I called and talked to Hermana Ramos. She said that it was awesome. They had gone to the temple for their p-day (it's not open on Mondays so they went Tuesday) and she said it was great! So the capital didn't get it too bad either but I'm sure that down by the coast they got hit pretty bad.

The missionary work is going well here. We found some new investigators. Last week when we got a free ride up to Santa Elena to go to Yaxha we talked to the guy and he lives in our area, Hugo Flores, and he said that he lived in the US for like 15 years so we visited him and his family. His son really appreciates it because he's interested in this stuff and he enjoys talking a little in English. He's lived here for like 2 years now but it's still a little hard for him. There's also another family, the dad is Maxamiliano, or Max, and their son's sick so we were able to bring the elders to the hospital to give the son a blessing so we're hoping that turns out well.

We have someone with a date to get baptized. His name's Osbin and he's going to get married the same day. They had a date to get married and him baptized but it fell through so we put a new one for the 1st of December. We're really going to work with the ward so that they can complete this date. They seem excited though so it should go through. Hermana Garambel told me that the last time they weren't as excited so we'll see what happens.

Yeah I'm working hard on learning the area so that I can take over when she leaves. It should be good though. It's bigger than I'm used to but it's not too confusing.

Love you all and hope that you have a great week!
