Bienvenido a Valle de Angeles

From the heat to the fresco or to where the climate is a little better. Im now assigned in the area Santa Maria which is in the zone Valle de Angeles. Its pretty cool because i just went from the biggest zones in the mission to now one of the smallest. And to from one of the hottest places in the mission to know one of the coolest areas in the mission its a little wierd but its cool i like it here. My new companion is called Elder Rasmussen me and him are the zone leaders here in the zone valle de angeles then there is the district leader and his companion and then 3 areas and companionships of hermanas. Its a little wierd because were out numbered. But no its a great zone and missionaries i like it here alot.

On monday i knew all the changes and where i was going but i just kindof decided to save it all for this week and kindof of give you the run down of that. So Elder rasmussen is a cool elder gringo from utah like the majority. The only thing is that he has almost 23 months. Yes this is his last change. So it should be fun. Its a little difficult to kill a missionary as they say but its cool i dont mind.  So on monday after a normall p-day last week then tuesday was just full of packing and saying bye to everyone thats always sad but its something you just got to do.

Then Wensday morning we got up at five and i gave my kid a hug the one i trained haha and said well good luck stay strong and maybe ill see you again soon. Because i was going to the city if i spend 7 months here then he stays in the south i might never see him again. So with another elder who was finsihing the mission and spent the night with us elder lozano who was my companion in the office me and him got up at 5am then got ready then headed to the road to get on the bus to the city. We made it there on a bus with a bunch of other missionarys and there bags and had all the changes and everything found our new companions then headed out to our new areas.

This group that went home i have to say is probably after 17 months that kindof hit me hard alot of missionarys ive know since i got to the mission a few companions and stuff so it kindof sucked. But thats just the way it happens sometime inside i was happy for them they all finished strong. Anyways so my area is right before you go up this mountain to someother little towns. Im in one of the 5 zones in the city buy like on the out skirts but i can get to the middle centro of tegucigalpa in like 20 mins in bus or taxi so thats kindof nice.

The area is good i like it alot. The members are super nice and helping in all ways. The area as well as the church is small but its sufficent. SO this week weve been just getting to know the members and everything. The work here is a lot different. Like in the south everyone lets you in just about to share a message here not so much its more of slammed doors and people with lots of excuses. But for me i dont mind too much because it really helps me find the people who are truely interested.

Anyways thats about it just getting adapted to a new area new companion and a new zone. It nice though i went from area that was like 100 and something daily to know where its like high 80s or low 90s so ill take it. Well sorry this week no picture but next week i got you guys a pic with my new companion and everything. Thank you guys for everything I love and miss you all. Have a great week and ill talk to you guys again next monday!
