Week 51 There is no Time

Another great week has come and gone. I think the only valid comparison I can do to the mission work right now would be that of Coach Travis. At the end of hell week we always had to do timed sprints and and the last one he would be screaming-yelling "4th quarter" and "who wants it more" and stuff like that... That's kinda how I feel right now. We have absolutley no time for anything and are just sprinting from place to place trying to get stuff done!

I don't know if I told you, but last Monday we tried to wake up early and clean the house, but while mowing the lawn (with our machete) my comp broke a pipe and flooded the house. haha So Tuesday we hired a little Latino off the street to come fix it:)  So that took up most of our Tuesday. 

Wednesday we had interviews with President Vasquez and a zone conference.  The interview was just awesome! I learned a lot, but we didnt get back into our area until 8ish and had no time to work. 

Thursday we headed out to San Salvador for my companions migrations (he just completed 1 year on the mission) we are about 3 hours from the migration office and had to wake up at 4 to be there at 7:30. We jumped in a cramped ghetto bus and were miserable the entire way there.  haha Then we got some super delicious Taco Bell after he was done getting his visa updated! It was so delicious!! I spent more money there than I normally do in a week. haha
On our way home we found a "special" bus that was super nice and had air conditioning and a seat for everyone... it was so awesome and they didn't let preachers on... just a nice lady who sold us pupusas... it was glorious and I will never go to El Salvador again in anything but that bus. haha
We got home really late and had almost no time to work. 

Friday I headed out to another area in my district to do divisions. I had an awesome baptismal interview. The lady was so ready and had such great faith. When the elders explained she would have to marry or separate from her boyfriend to get baptized she was 100% willing, but her boyfriend wasn't. So she took a leap of faith and moved in with her mom, with no job, no money, and a little 2 year old girl. The next day her leap of faith paid off when an old friend found her and offered her a bunch of products to get started as a saleswoman in the market. Then someone was super desperate to sell their spot in the market and sold it to her ridiculously cheap. Now 2 weeks later she is the owner of a thriving business and is 1 million times happier than she ever has been. She got baptized Saturday:)  The Lord completes his promises (Mosiah 2:22)

Saturday we had a ward activity that took pretty much all of our day... so we had almost no time to work in the area. But we worked smart and hard with the time that we did have and the Lord came through with some big blessings. 

I am doing great. Thanks for all your support. 
Love Elder Davis

house cleaning and my first love (taco bell) :)
