Another great week here in El Milagro. This week I had the opportunity to do an interchange of companions for a day this friday with my other gringo buddy here in El Milagro, Elder Maddocks. Two white americans proselyting here is always a funny thing to see. Almost even funnier than two white guys walking around Milagro was the spelling bee we held in our english class this saturday. Once again I think it comes down to poor teachers, but the spelling bee was sooooooo difficult. Simple english words are so hard to spell if you are not used to the sounds.
This week we have also had the wonderful new opportunity to eat lunch Saturdays and Sundays with members which until recently was prohibited. So far it has been so much fun trying out everyones different cooking and to hear lots of stories. What has really stood out to me were the many conversion stories that we have heard in our coule of lunch appointments we have had. So many of the members here have sacrificed so much in their lives to find Christ and to serve their neighbors here in El Milagro. It just made me think about what we are personally willing to do to serve and sacrifice for our savior Jesus Christ who was the ultimate sacrifice for all of us.
Well another great week here in El Milagro
