Updates from Zambrano

Well I hope everyone had a great week, and that your lesson went well Mom. I know it did! :) 
This week we are still working with M who is prepping for the priesthood, and working with his friend who keeps telling us he is waiting for his baptismal date! YAY! Its awesome seeing them both progress and seeing them learn more about this gospel.  The office finally got us our triples for them, because they are excited to have The Doctrine and Covenants, because on Sundays in classes they didn't have one to look up the other scriptures.  H is getting baptized this Saturday, but we are worried because he is working on cutting out the coffee.  Its a big addiction here in Honduras.  So if all goes well, this Saturday will be his baptism! :) 
Mom, if you could send me some more white shirts, size small and medium Mens that would be great.  There is no where here to buy.  We have some that we rounded up from the elders haha.

Well not much too new.  Finding new people to work with, and trying to help them commit to baptism, even though many do not like the word commit.. or compromiso here.  I am grateful for the scriptures and for this gospel.  I know my understanding of the simple principles we teach is what has helped me to try to be a better person. This week we had a lot of lessons with new people about the Restoration and specifically Joseph Smith.  We bore testimony about him being a true prophet and that he was the instument in restoring the gospel.  Even though after we explain, many people just can't get over that God restored his gospel through a prophet and think we don't believe in Christ.  Well after all we have tried to explain and testify, my testimony grows stronger that through Joseph Smith we have the gospel restored on earth today.  There are so MANY churches here and the more I hear about their doctrines I KNOW that the Book of Mormon was inpired of God to help us in these confusing times to know which church is true. 

This week for our weekly missionary activity in the church,  we are celebrating the anniversay of the Pioneers! :) We are asking 3 or 4 members to dress up in pioneer clothing and be one of the pioneers and explain about their life on journey. :) haha hoping more people show up this time! :) Super excited. 

Miss you and love you all! :)
