We went out in service this morning here in sunny, hot California. I placed a book with a nice young man, and Zach got to talk to a man for a while in Spanish. It was a pretty good morning.
So here are some pictures from Pioneer School.
It seems we might finally have an idea for work. Right now we are starting a course in Teaching English as a Foreign Language, so hopefully that will get us some tutoring jobs. Looks like we will be in California for a while, so if anyone here wants to get together, let us know. Or if you want to visit, we have a couch in our trailer.
We don't know when we will be back to Honduras, hopefully soon, but we shall see. We are missing all the friends.
That's all for now. We will keep you informed as things happen, or don't happen. Whichever comes first.

Day two of the district convention. I don't feel it's a spoiler alert to tell that we got two new releases, since we are the last English convention anywhere that I know of. I really like the pictures, just skimmed the articles so far. Can't wait to sit down and actually read them. Already know what today and tomorrow releases are too, thanks to having gone to the Sunday session already.
It's nice to be here with Zachs sister and spend time with her, since we see each other so rarely. But I feel really lost in this huge crowd of people. It's the largest convention we have been to in years, and is especially overwhelming coming from Honduras with a small congregation and not seeing many people period.
This weekend or friends have the convention in El Salvador, so it's nice to be doing something together even if there is a bit of land difference between us. I saw a picture that a friend from El Salvador took yesterday, a little sister from Honduras was featured in it. Such a small world, it was nice to feel connected for that brief moment.
The one really nice thing about being in a big crowd is singing. Everyone is so loud and in harmony, it sounds beautiful. That's always been my favorite part.

I have been such a slacker these past few weeks. I had planned to spend days processing photos into a cohesive storyline for everyone to enjoy. Have I done this? No. I have been sleeping and taking pictures of my babies. Now the convention starts in a couple hours and we will be busy with that. So here is my goal. Make me stick to it. After convention I will email people the pictures I owe them and will attempt to get the videos I am owed. Then I will post a lovely piece about pioneer school and El Salvador and how our life goals are taking a side trip or three. But in the meantime, here's some photos to amuse yourselves with.
