Mowing a lawn with a machete!
Another great week has come and gone here in El Salvador! We had changes this week. I'm still here in Santo Tomas but I have a new companion. His name is Elder Flores and he's from Honduras. He has been in the mission for 20 months and so he's got a lot of good stuff that I can learn! This week was a little hard because a lot of our visits fell through and we had to stop teaching a few people because they decided they didn't want to listen to us anymore haha. But that's all part of the mission. We tried getting some new investigators and found a few positive ones in the streets. So hopefully we can see the fruits of these children of our Heavenly Father and help them prepare for baptism.we had a pretty cool service project. We cleaned up the area of a hospital clinic area. The people were pretty happy. I got to do my old outside house job of mowing the lawn....except with a machete haha. I haven't seen a lawnmower for 9 months! Then yesterday when we were walking to a visit we passed a weird rain dance thing going on. We didn't stop to watch so I was really confused. There were guys in these weird costumes that looked really creepy dancing around with machetes and umbrellas....There were also a bunch of people selling really cool stuff for tourists buuuuut it was S so I didn't get anything. That's pretty much everything for this week. I wish I had a cool funny story to share...maybe next week. I love and miss you all!
Love Elder Markham
