Week 42 Izalco District, El Salvador-May 9, 2016

Dude, Where's Our Area?

Hey happy mother´s day yesterday! or tomorrow if youre a latino! as youre all probably aware, i was able to talk to my dear family yesterday and of course it was a great time. i also got to meet kaufusi´s family and he got to meet mine so now we feel all excited to be reunited after the mission. but this week was great! We went out to many far lands to meet new people and had the help of a few members to contact some less active members we didnt know before. the members here are really great. on saturday we had plans to go to this far town called cuisnahuat to contact a few references we have had for a while. however, we missed the bus and werent able to go. luckily, there was a bus about to leave to another far town called ishuatan, which we also have never been to. we had no other set plans for the day so we decided to set out and explore. it was this tiny little bus that was too short for the two of us and it was super packed. we started going down through a few areas we have visited beforehand but then the bus began to make its way up this mountain on a slightly windy road. we were passing over valleys and other hills and mountains. it was super beautiful. finally elder kaufusi, about 20 minutes into the bus ride, turned to me and said "dude where are we?" haha we had no idea where we were going. after about 30 minutes we began to see houses and i suddenly was filled with this great desire to just speak with all of them. the thought came to my head about how all of these people in this far out town have never ever seen missionaries at their home. for probably all of their lives they have never had the chance to hear the gospel. although there are missionaries all over the world, there are so many places like that that is just so remote and so far from hearing the gospel. i know that it is our duty, not only as missionaries but as members of this church, to truly bring the world His truth. although the success we experienced in that little town was few, we know that we have performed our duty to reach out to all of God´s children. I hope all of you are doing well and have a great week. Thank you for your support always!
