Hi To All !!!!!

One thing that I have noticed that I really like is that there are so many motorcycles and moto-taxis in Honduras that I feel like I am at the sand dunes 24/7!   We have done some great things this past couple of weeks.  We were able to help paint for a sister in the ward.  It was exhausting but satisfying.  It was my comp's birthday.  We had some cake.  It was good.  We also went with some investigators and played soccer with some ward members.  We went clear up to the city for what we thought was a emergency zone meeting but when we got there we actually didn't need to go.

I realized that I have been on the mish for 5 months now.  I can't believe it has already been 5 months.  I have been feeling pretty good.  However, I had an allergic reaction to jalapenos and had to go to the hospital.  The reaction lasted like 3 hours and my hands and face were on fire.  I put my hands in a bucket of cold water to soothe the pain until 1 am.  We have hired a person to help us cook so that has been good.  We thought we had access to a washer but the washer broke.  So, we continue to wash and dry our own clothes.   

We met with a woman this week who had in the past been progressing as an investigator.  She told us that she didn't want us coming back.  We then discussed her reasons.  I thought about her reasons and about how members leave the church. I hope that people will have faith and doubt their doubts before they doubt their faith.  I know that the Book of Mormon is true.  Joseph Smith was a prophet of God.  Thomas S. Monson is the prophet and Jesus Christ is the son of God who atoned for and died for our sins.  I am grateful for my faith.  Knowing these truths allow me to press forward with faith in Christ.

Have a great week and Merry Christmas!  

Love, Elder Cox
