The Ghetto Report, Ed 21 April 2014

Well adoring fans, let's get right to it. So this last week just down right sucked. So the Semana Santa is just a horrible time to be a missionary. Everyone and their dog is gone and it is really hot. Supposedly it is the hottest time of the year here. I don't know if that is true but it was over 100 every single day at about 10:00 am so I am thinking it was just a little hot.

Well what does all of that mean for a missionary? Thank you for asking. It meant that we were just pouring sweat and just walking around a whole ton. As in walking all day it seemed. Normally we only walk to the next lesson appointment we have and so we aren't out in the sun as much as you would think. But this last wee was just horrible! I sweat so dang much. Every single day I was just pouting buckets of sweat I swear.

But the work goes on nonetheless. So just for all you interested bugs out there the Easter time here in Honduras is a really strange one. Number one, all week the movie "The Ten Commandments" with Charlton Heston is on about every single channel of tv all week on rerun. As soon as it gets done, it starts up again. Number two, everyone just leaves and goes and hangs out with as many distant relatives as they can. No one has school or work all week. On Friday they close down everything and like no one goes out into the street...except or a Gringo and a Colombian who are about trying to teach them why Christ is so important, especially at this time of year.

It was hot, it was dusty, and I just want you all to know that I hate you all and the fact that you can sleep and not go to bed sweating and wake up in the same state. But hey, just another journal entry right? So really with all this week just being a real downer and hot and miserable, I was just really down this week. Dragging bottom. But I was reading in the Book of Mormon and found the answer I needed to keep on trucking on and finish the work.

It is in Alma 60:11. It was just a machete to me. It says hey if you are thinking that God's purposes will just happen because He loves us and we said please we are thinking in vain. We have to go out and work and fight the giants that face us every day and He will strengthen us to the point that we will literally see miracles.

At the end of the week we had a very spiritual time and found a ton of people who had been praying for just what we are here for. It shows that we just have to work and work and work and just change socks and drink water. That will solve everything.

Well that is about all the word for this week. Oh parents I did get the huge box filled with ties. Now the mission is just baptize the men to fill those ties.

Well thanks for all your love and support, I miss you all unless you don't ever write me or are from New Jersey and are named Jack Conway...oh well that is all I have for you this week.

Just remember, God has plenty of people who sit by and do nothing. Go make a change and have an adventure. Loves,
