I have now had a Son, yes a son. That means in missionary language I'm training. Yes, it was very sudden. He is from the Dominican Republic. He's 19, has two younger siblings and his parents, but is the only member of all of them... yeah, he likes to play baseball, and basketball, and is a great kid.
Um.. oh Good new one of our investigators we've been teaching since I got here accepted a date for baptism with his whole family!!!!!!!
Well got to go, we have a new district leader, and basically new district. I'm the only gringo and still struggling with Spanish... um.. yeah well that's about it! Peace out!!!!
Love, Elder Johnson
Here are some questions I asked him:
1. I hear elections are coming up. What is missionary protocol at that time? Have you heard much about it? Elections are coming up our protocol is not leaving the house the day before, day of and day after. then we're good. so I'll be writing on Tuesday next week.
2. We also heard there is an air force base near you, do you know much about it? Yes there is an air force base that the Americans own and allow the Hondurans to use. All I really know about it is the DFAC is where you eat and they have burgers there.
3. What is your favorite thing about the area you are currently serving in? My favorite thing is that we live in comfort in the middle of a city but still visit peublitos and hike in the mountains. Really this area is just the best in the whole mission for baptisms, beauty and the ward.
4. What has been your favorite food? What do you eat the most? I really like the soap here. I eat a lot of rice and beans and plantanos.
I'm a little confused on that last one, I don't know if he spelled something wrong with the soap, misunderstood the question, or really likes to eat soap.
