The Report From the Fork in the Road, Ed 7 Julio

So this week was fast and sad...just sad. Well let's talk about that, shall we?

So as you all are figuring out this week was America Day. It was sad...just sad. So in honor of that day we went in to the Latin missionaries' rooms and topped their beds. Then running out singing America the Beautiful while cooking Mickey Mouse pancakes and then running around attacking our Latin housemates and saying "America!" every time they tried to question our motives. Then we just went and taught like the missionaries we are. Yeah just a sad day. Not really different at all. Then all of a sudden it was yet another day after.

So this week we got back into the bridge building business. So this time we were only making a small bridge to go over the small canal of aguas negras that run all of this country. Yup, that is a sewage canal. Well everything was going good until my comp Elder Sessions misplaced his footing and fell into the canal. Yes it was totally the best thing ever. And the long walk back home with his shoes having that awkward squeaking and squishing was just making it totally that much better. So he was then trying for the rest of the week to clean his shoes. And then he told me that if he dies from a nasty infection or something that he would haunt me for the rest of my life for laughing at his misfortunate.

Then let's see what else happened...oh so we had to help our neighbor-lady chase down a cow who had used her hammock as a way to scratch its head and then the hammock got hooked on its horns and it took off blind and scared as two gringos and a fat Latin lady starting chasing it around the neighborhood. But good news is the neighbor has her hammock back. Bad news is that Honduras is so dangerous even livestock are starting to rob for a living. But hey I have my buddy Pancho who is a very high level thief in the raccoon cartel to help me. So don't worry about me.

In other news we are still plugging along and working with our investigators and trying to get them to come to church and progress towards baptism. Other than that we really don't have anything to report. Other than I expect all of you to be having adventures of your own and reporting on them.

As of yet no one has reported any adventures with pictures. I am ashamed of you all. Work on that for next week.

Other than that all birthday wishes are to send America in a box down to a kid in Honduras. I love you and can't wait to hear from you soon.
