"Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou
dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee withersoever thou goest."

It's heating up again my friends

Okay, where do I even start because the time is just flying by faster and faster.  It’s CRAZY! So the weather...it’s getting so hot it isn’t t even funny. Here in Comayagua it’s one of the hottest places in all of Honduras. There are other hot spots too but here its super hot. It’s been actually super miserable, but we are making it happen, so lets get down to the sweat report. Lets getter done! 

So right now we are teaching this familia that literally are amazing. They are super humble and are chosen... and when I say they are chosen, I am not kidding. The Lord prepared this familia like no other. They are the familia V. They are amazing... we love them so much. There are five kids and then the wife. They live about a half hour away from the center up into the mountains. They are so great, they just get it. They have such an open mind and are so willing to do what the Lord has in store for them They are looking to get dunked here in about 2 or 3 weeks. They came to church this weekend and they came in ties and white shirts and all… hahaha todod estaban pensando que eran miembro de la iglesia jjaja pero no son. So everything is going great with them, so if you all can keep them in your thoughts and prayers that would be great. 

We are teaching about 8 right now that are really progressing and are working towards getting baptized this month and early next month. We literally are running with our heads cut off to get everything done that we need to do each day. It’s so hot so we are dying. I carry around a rag in my pocket as a sweat rag to somewhat try and stay dry... so funny story. Well, not too funny but yah... so I always put the rag hanging out of my back right pocket. So I didn’t think anything of it... well a huge gang banger mafia type dude told us, “Listen make sure you never put that in your back left pocket or you might have problems”.... didn’t even think about that! Gotta love the people that are always looking out for you.

Okay another great story for the week! 

So the other elders here in our area are teaching a woman... well come to find out they are big time high ups in the drug world here and we didn’t even know it. So we were walking down the street and a guy came up and talked to us. He started telling us that we need to tell the other missionaries, and he knew there names, that they NEVER needed to go back to such house at all. He told us all.. they had us stalked pretty much and they knew that we went to the gym in the morning and all because some people believe here that missionaries are like usa spies... so dumb right. But they were making sure that we were not investigating the house and all of them. So come to find out like that whole block where all the elders have been teaching are total gang bangers and all. Now we can’t ever go back... crazy stuff! So that was some exciting news... what else happened this week? 

We are just trying to teach a lot and get a lot done.. only 73 days more for Papi Long to get stuff done so I am trying to make the most of each day. All is great. I am loving the mission more than ever right now and we are doing big things. I am so happy to be an instrument in the Lords work and I know this work is His work and not mine. All is great, couldn’t be any hotter or happier, just making the most of every day! 

I am going to attach a few links of videos that I love and that we are using a lot right now. Watch them and take what you can from them please, they are great! Loves! 

I LOVE YOU GUYS! MAKE IT A SPECIAL WEEEK. LOVE YOU GUYS. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. I love you. 

Con Mucho Amor, 
Elder Long!
