Now this is the story all about how My life got flipped, turned upside down...

It is the 4th of July today!! but it doesn't really feel like it...
FYI: we had changes... now im in Ipala, Chiquimula with elder Lopez from Mexico!!!!
we didnt even get to meet the new pres at changes.. crazy...
im still the district leader but now I'm also the first councilor in the Branch presidency... ya... we have about 25 active members in our branch...
we have alot of work to do here in the mountain town of good ole Ipala... one of the good things is that we have 3 sisters in the area Ipala 2.. they help alot to plan and do activities... we plan and do everything in the ward.. i mean everything.. so the sisters help out alot in that aspect... Ipala is about a 1 1/5 hours from zacapa.. and one hour of that 1 1/5 is up the mountain.. its a lot colder in Ipala.. i was kinda sad that i only had one change in Zacapa.. but..
on the way back from changes i had to get off the bus in San Jorge with the new sisters and show them the area (they are opening the area).. their house, where they eat, the church, the bishops house, and some of their investigators..(i did divisions a couple times in that area so i kinda of knew).. by this time it was dark.. no buses leaving or entering San Jorge.. so we left the sisters and hitched a ride to Zacapa where my bags were.. also no buses leaving to chiquimula... so we called my super cool bishop casasola!! and he willingly gave up a ride to chiqui.. zacapa to chiqui is about 40 min drive.. that night we slept in chiqui at the ZLs house.. the next morning we used the narley Zls mission leader to give us a ride to Ipala with a bunch of extra stuff for the 3rd sister.. (last change their was only 2 sisters that lived in Ipala).. the little Toyota pick-up was full of suitcases and beds, desks, new blender, extra spatula, and a couple coconuts, and some other tricks and such... after a nice stroll through the park, I looked at my kingdom I was finally there, To sit on my throne as the Fresh prince of Bel-air..
we had some super fresh little river fish for dinner the other night.. the little boy came home with a couple had fulls, so we cooked them suckers up!! not bad tastin!! cant forget the tortillas!! haha
