Happy new years to all. New years I passed out so fast. I was so beat. We worked so hard this week.
My comp had changes and the mission gave me a member to work with. So I have been working with a member lately. So let me tell you about what happened this week. We hiked over a mountain without a path like no joke. We hiked up and over it. It was horrible. There are recent converts that I know that lived so far away so another elder that knew where they lived from my zone went to my area to show me where they lived. Well he thought he knew a shortcut that would be faster. Well the shortcut took us into the middle of the mountains and we got lost and it was an awesome experience ha ha the middle of the jungle. We did find many orange trees though. Anyways so ya we eventually came to a coffee field hiked through the coffee field and in the middle of the field was a little mud hut and there lived the people. We talked to them for a while and they said they would go to church if we went and got them in the morning on Sunday. So Sunday we woke up way early hiked up the mountain for like an hour and a half just to have them tell us no maybe next week. It was horrible but it was a good work out. I almost died though ha ha.
So working with the member was awesome. We found a ton of new families to start working with. We are going to start teaching them this week. We have a lot of appointments tomorrow. Wednesday I will have my new comp. The member I was working with bounced last night. I am now in Matagalpa working with the Maag Dawg. The Aps called me and told me to look for member to help cause we are running low on elders. So I called up a convert of mine to see if he wanted to work as a missionary for a while and he was totally down. So I had the Aps call him and he is going to work a full change this change. A full 6 weeks. I called the APS and told him that I wanted him to be my comp so we will see what happens. It will be awesome to have my convert as a companion. My converts name is Ismael from Tezoatega. I didn't baptize him but I taught him all the way up till he got baptized so I feel like he is my convert.
So sounds pretty crazy with all the weddings that are going. I am happy for all of them. One day I will get married and it will be awesomely legendary.
So I can officially say I will be home this year ha ha. Craziness. I went through one full year here in Nicaragua. Just a short 7 months more and I'll be there with ya chillin.
So to answer some of your questions. Yes the attendance went up a lot this week at church. We had an attendance of 22 which is a lot better than last weeks attendance. We'll see if we can keep getting that number up.
I'll try to send you pictures of the awesome stuff I have been doing lately. I got to bounce love you a ton and miss ya. Love ya all the way to the moon and back.
Love, Elder Moore
