Week 77 Changes!!!

Changes are always sweet because it gives you a chance to start fresh, start new goals, and get to know a new companion and area... but at times they are kinda hard as well. 

I am now in the beautiful hilly (honestly it is all hills- you are either walking up or down steep hills at all times... there is no flat) town of Sensuntepeque with Elder Gutierrez from Guatemala. 

It was pretty tough saying goodbye to San Miguel... I really love that place and had to say goodbye to some really great people, but I guess it was the will of the Lord and I'm excited to see what we can get done here. 

Our branch is one the smallest in the mission (about 30 attend sacrament meeting each week, about 15 in sunday school, and us 4 missionaries and 3 members stayed all the way through the 3rd hour haha) Last week the branch president turned his keys in and said he was done with the church, but its all chill because we got a new branch president this week... an RM who got home from the mission 2 weeks ago!! 

I'm pretty pumped though to see what the Lord has in store for us here. I kinda like being in little branches because you can see the fruits of your efforts a little more, and the other 2 missionaries in the branch are both good friends... President met up with me and Elder Durbin (he was ZL in the zone right next to mine in San Miguel so we worked a ton together) after the change meeting and pretty much told us, "save the branch and save your companions".  I didn't really understand what he meant until we got here. hahaha

Also side note, I have heated showers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I didn't know those existed here. It's just this little electrical thing they hooked up to the shower head and it feels so good to feel hot water for the first time in almost a year and a half.  haha

So yeah that's pretty much it. I'm happy, pumped for the work and trying to get to know the area. 

Hope everyone is doing good,  and that you can give service to someone in some way this Christmas season. 

Love Elder Davis
