Easter week = Guatemalans on vacation

Well, on Monday we helped some of the ward members by changing some of the tin sheet on their roofs - that didn't take too long. This last week and also for this week we have been waking up at 4:40 am to call a family so that they can read and we read at the same time as they do. It is the ______ Family and they are doing good. Last night we had a lesson with them and for the past week I have felt like something has been wrong and last night we found out why. The husband works really late and when he leaves there is a girl that waits for him to walk home with him. He is a nice, but naive man that would do it but then stopped and his wife found out and they are having some hard times in their relationship. So last night we explained what they had to do so that they can get over these things, but it was so nice to be able to get that out of them.

On Thursday we helped Pedro Calel fill out his first tithing slip and he was very excited to turn it in, but it was sad because he couldn't - he had to take his daughter of one year and a few months to the doctor because she has an infection.

On Friday I went on divisions with Elder Rosales from El Salvador and that was great because he is a great missionary who I just enjoy being around and talking to. He has family in Cali and has been there as well and has plans to go there when he gets back. He will probably go to the office this change as Assistant to President Baldwin and also for President Braugh from Utah.

On Saturday we were contacting a little bit and as we were contacting a man call us over and he turned out to be a member who is inactive and his wife is not a member but the thing is that his wife is old enough to be his mom - which is kind of creepy. But he came with us to church yesterday and it was awesome because our recent covert Hugo gave him a great, warm welcome.

Well, that is what happened this last week. This week we will have zone conference which will be my last one so I will have to bear my testimony which will be sad - but I think I will go in my new suit. :) Also this week, it should be interesting because everyone has vacations and it might be hard to find people here. But we will be just fine.

Regarding housing I really don't care but off campus might be good because I can cook my own food which I think I would prefer. And in Idaho, that sounds good to me. And also I might need a little bit more money to buy everything for the family, but I will let you know next week. Also how long will I have at home before I go to Utah?

Well, I love you all and hope that you guys are doing well.
Love, Elder Musick
