The Shark Tank

Dawn Patrol Report Managua/Chinandega. Shredding and staying in the tube as per ush. (dad ism)

Changes on monday. Made it through pretty easy this time around. There were about 60 missionaries with some sort of change. I just baby sit. 

We got 15 new missionaries on monday. 3 white ones and 12 brown ones. And one of the white ones is a dude from San Antonio texas named elder rammel. My companions and i were talking the entire last week about what would be the sickest thing to do for this kid in his first twelve hours of the mission. He got to our house on monday night at 10 pm. We planned a baptism for 8 oclock in the morning on tuesday and this little guy got in the tank with my sweet lady friend named Kennydete. It was awesome. He threw somebody in (and had to do it 4 times the guy was so nervous haha) with only 9 hours in the mission. Elder rammel had is first interview with president at the mission home that morning and president asked him how his night with the APs went haha. He was way stoked. 

The Shark Tank with Elder Rammel and his first baptism

Elder Hobbs, Elder Sirrine, Elder Hirschi, and i are all in one companionship now. We live in the same house now and its freakin sick. We call our selves the shark tank. The shark tank has a bunch of people lined up for this weekend and the following couple of weeks. Sharks are gettin in the tank baby! The nicaragua managua north mission baptized 100 people last weekend. Looking to end the month with about two hundred and with only three weekend to confirm because of conference. The goal for the year is 2400 and we are on track. 

This week i was in chinandega from thursday to sunday. Chinandega is the hottest city in nicaragua so yes kate, my buttcrack has been sweaty a lot lately. Rash plan is coming along nicely so elder jake might be making his way out to the swell soon. I worked with a bunch of different guys out there all weekend and then came back sunday night to do numbers all night in the office. Chinandega was dope though. I slept in the dirt, one of the elders i worked with got socked in the face buy a drunk guy, i got bit by a dog, and saw the ocean again. Just a sleezy weekend if you ask me. 

Bryces little quote about forgetting how to repent really affected me this week. Repentance, more than anything, is our understanding of christs role in our life. When we truly understand what he does for us, our hearts change and we are willing to make changes in our lives. Our willingness to be obedient always and to make constant little changes is what brings about great things and genuine happiness. These changes bring us closer to him. And when we are with him, we cannot fall. 

 11 And he hath power given unto him from the Father toredeem them from their sins because of repentance;therefore he hath sent his angels to declare the tidings ofthe conditions of repentance, which bringeth unto thepower of the Redeemer, unto the salvation of their souls.
 12 And now, my sons, remember, remember that it isupon the rock of our Redeemer, who is Christ, the Son ofGod, that ye must build your foundationthat when thedevil shall send forth his mighty winds, yea, his shafts inthe whirlwind, yea, when all his hail and his mighty stormshall beat upon you, it shall have no power over you todrag you down to the gulf of misery and endless wo,because of the rock upon which ye are built, which is asure foundation, foundation whereon if men build theycannot fall
Love you guys. Stay sleezy.
